Gluten-Free Apple Cider Doughnuts

Who doesn’t like a good doughnut, especially a doughnut that is gluten-free and cooked in the oven so there is no oil involved? That’s my kind of doughnut! This doughnut has the perfect doughy texture topped off with some apple cider glaze to give it a sweet apple flavor. If you like apples, apple cider, and apple cider sweets, then this doughnut is the right doughnut for you. The best thing about doughnuts is that you can have them at any time of the day. You can start off your morning with a doughnut for breakfast or end your day …

 

California Eats: Part 2

Last week, I blogged about some of the California eats that I enjoyed on my recent trip to the West Coast. Today, I’ll continue sharing my food adventure in the golden state with a focus on sweets and snacks.
 

 
As you may know, I am obsessed with French macaron cookies – so much that I learned to make them myself (see post on nutella macarons)!

A World without Hostess?

Thanks to my iPad, while I traveling, I can keep up with some news in the States. The news of Hostess closing is surreal to me and no photo of any Hostess or Drake product to add to this blog is necessary. It is the end of something that has been a part of American life.
To go onto the Hostess website and see in black and white “Hostess Brands is Closed” is shocking! All of the products I grew up on are gone or will be shortly. No more chocolate cupcakes with the cream center, snowball cupcakes, ring …

 

Apple Cider Donuts

If it is fall in New England, it is time for apple picking! If apple picking is not your thing, a visit to an orchard or farm stand will enable you to buy a wide variety of apples!  You can’t forget to enjoy apple cider- hot or cold a wonderful fall treat as well.
But don’t forget to try the apple cider donuts!  I mean try them at everyplace you find them since they are as different as every apple pie you have ever tasted!

One of the best apple cider donuts I had the pleasure of enjoying was at Russell Orchards …
