Home Made Pumpkin Pie

Its definitely that time of year. The days are shorter, the air is colder, and the desserts are better! That is why my wife and I decided to make our first, and quickly after second third and fourth, home made pumpkin pies. Everything is from scratch, even having to save a pumpkin from carving, and bake it instead. This tastes 100x better than any of those frozen or overly processed and preserved pies you will find at your local grocery store. I highly recommend baking this pie and bringing it to your Christmas party.

Cinnamon Sugar Donut Muffin

On our road trip from Seattle to California we made a lot of detours to local bakeries and donut shops. One bakery we made a point to visit was the Downtown Bakery and Creamery in Healdsburg, California. Healdsberg is a quaint little town 70 miles north of San Francisco filled with little shops and restaurants, I highly recommend a visit if your ever in the area. We heard about Downtown Bakery's donut muffin from Food Networks "The Best Thing I Ever Ate - Snack Attack" show. Candace Nelson the founder of Sprinkles Cupcakes loved their donut muffin so much, she created a cupcake in tribute to the donut muffin. The Sprinkles version is basically a cupcake with cinnamon sugar, not exactly the same thing. Personally, I would like to eat the donut muffin whenever I want without having to drive over 400 miles to Healdsberg and Sprinkles isn't going to cut it, especially at $3.25 a cupcake. Luckily my wife found a recipe in The Pioneer Woman Cookbook for a French Breakfast Puff, which is exactly the same thing as the donut muffin. The only change I made to the recipe was to add a little bit more cinnamon.

Cinnamon Sugar Donut Holes

Lately, I have been jonesing to make some donuts and putting my new fryer to good use. The extended fourth of July weekend gave me the opportunity to spend some time in the kitchen working with hot oil. Being a little too impatient to make traditional donuts that require yeast to rise, I opted for these quick and easy donut holes. No yeast required and no standby time. Just mix and fry to enjoy some cinnamon sugar donut holes. But mark my words, this isn't going to be the last of the donut recipes on MvsK. I am still looking forward to making the traditional donut. Until that day comes, enjoy these bite size cinnamon sugar donut holes.

Gooey Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Paula Dean is the Queen of Butter and these cookies are her royal servants. Deliciously moist cakes in the shape of rich chocolatey cookies. It doesn't get any better than this, or does it? Hmmm what can you add to an already rich chocolate cookie? How about more chocolate? Well that's what we did. If this doesn't fix your craving of chocolate then good luck finding Willy Wonka's Chocolate River.
