Light of my Life

Archive for January 2010

Please come visit me in my new location. Same blog, new address. Hope to see you there! 🙂

First off, hello blog, sorry for virtually forgetting about your existence for all these months! Yes, we are alive and well (other than all the yucky germs that have been going around the past month or so); I guess I have just been too busy to post!

So, let’s start off the new year with a picture to make your mouth water.

I have had a taste for doughnuts lately, and I have this new rule that if I want sweets, I have to make them myself instead of buying them. I’ve never made doughnuts before and was a bit intimidated by the frying part, so a few days ago I attempted a baked doughnut recipe. They were very good, but really not like doughnuts at all, more like doughnut-shaped sweet bread rolls. So tonight I decided to give the fried doughnuts a try. It was surprisingly easy, and I can’t describe how delicious they were. Good thing I only made 1/4 of a recipe – it would not be good to have a couple dozen of these babies lying around the house! Can you tell from the picture how cute the doughnut holes were?

Of course, I made them right after dinner, so this is what I am left with:

Worth it? I’d say yes. The doughnuts are gone already, so I think the family would agree. 😉
