Baked Donuts! 100 calories per donut!

I was kind of nervous about trying this recipe out. It’s a little time consuming. I made the dough and cut out donuts/holes the night before and then stored them in the fridge. I let the dough get to room temperature for about an hour. I baked some/I fried a few, and guess what? I…

9/11/01

I’m too young to remember when Kennedy got shot, but I think for my generation you’ll never forget what you were doing on September 11th, 2001. The day started like many others. My oldest son was in kindergarten at the time, and my other son was home, he was only 3. I was 7 months…

Healthy Brown Sugar Banana Muffins

This muffin is my version of a brown sugar cornmeal muffin from the 2000 Cooking Light Complete Cookbook. I didn’t have any cornmeal and I had bananas to use up, so I threw those in instead. I also didn’t have vanilla yogurt the recipe called for so I added ricotta cheese instead. It turned out…

Anniversary of my Dad’s passing…

All day today I kept writing the date….September 3rd, and I felt that there was something significant about it, until it hit me. Today is the day my Dad died September 3rd, 1998. My oldest son was only 2, my younger son was only 7 weeks old. It wasn’t a shock when he died, from…
