Homemade Baked Donuts

On the weekend we decided to try baked donuts. This was more of an experiment than anything. No high expectations at all. While surfing around the internet, I came across a recipe for baked donuts. First thought was, probably not very good. But after reading further I found out it was a thing. Before we could start we had to see if we could find donut pans locally. Low and behold, we did.

Make Your Own Granola Bars

If you have never even considered making your own granola bars, I am going to try and change your mind today.

Busy Weekend

I love Saturdays for some reason. I guess its because it feels like it is the beginning of two days of freedom to do what ever we choose. Although this time of year we always end up doing some office work to get ahead of Monday.

I wouldn’t leave him in the house alone, he would only cry and paw at the glass door, so Jim was flying solo.
