We love to do everything we can ourselves. If we didn’t live in a tiny tiny apartment we would definitely have a garden. This is a cool next best thing. It’s a home mushroom growing kit. The kit kind of worked, got about 1 cup from the first batch, still waiting on the B-side. We’ll see.

From that cup we made a yummy mushroom bread! I’ve been feeling sick lately so it was nice to get some baking done.

So my daughter is away at Univercity they have been cooking up a storm all year. They EVEN grew there own mushrooms!

So we’ve been wanting to make donuts for forever, but are terrified of hot oil. Sometimes we’ll see a great donut recipe and we’ll be like “Oh man! That might be worth it!”, but we know we’re never going to try.
We had been wanting to get get a donut pan, but we got something EVEN BETTER instead. We got mini bundt pans! They’re adorable! And we’re using them like donut pans.
We found them just by accident and when we got home we found a recipe and made these that night! Recipe here, on page 10, along with a bunch of other cuties that I can’t vouch for. Can say these are great, especially right out of the oven!!
