Betty Crocker

Do you food desires change with the seasons? Mine seem too. Once it gets cooler outside, the leaves begin to change, and fall descends upon us I desire to bake, bake, bake! I hunt for new recipes or just use old ones over and over. I love to do something new with pumpkin, apple, and cinnamon every year. Not to mention how yummy it makes the house smell when I do get creative!!

Last week I stumbled upon a petite pumpkin donut recipe on pinterest (surely you know what that is? If not, consider yourself saved from another internet addiction OR leave me a email in the comments & I'll send you an invite) and one for apple cider donuts.

I had the ingredients for gingerbread so I made that first last week. It was okay, not really something I'd have to make again.

This morning I got up and made the petite pumpkin donuts and also some into mini-muffins (I don't have a big enough donut pan currently). They were pretty good. Oldest son says recipe is a keeper, but he's really begging for pumpkin fudge.

Have you tried any new recipes lately?

I ended up baking something for the youngest for lunch and am about to go bake baked spaghetti for dinner. Today must be my day to feel like Betty Crocker!

I've started trying out different ways to make veggies.. like baking broccoli on a cookie sheet.. yum. Just changing it up a little bit makes it fun! I love the idea of gingerbread, but when I baked it homemade mine wasn't really as good as store bought. I need to catch up reading on your blog! It's been awhile :)
