I’ve been on a donut-making kick lately because you can make so many variations and they are pretty easy to make. Especially if you’re like me and you take shortcuts. I love baking but don’t have a lot of time, so I often think of ways I can make recipes easier and faster. These strawberry shortcake donuts were so simple to whip up! I decided to make them for a brunch I recently had. A few friends and I gathered one Saturday morning to visit and have a little time just chatting over coffee. These donuts went perfectly with our tea and coffee, and they were simple enough to whip up that morning before guests arrived.

My secret weapon for homemade donuts is boxed cake mix. I pick a flavor (here I used pink velvet) and then jazz it up a little. By placing sliced strawberries right into the batter, I made these donuts seem extra special. (more…)

Mini Pudding Parfaits With Sprinkles

Can we agree that mini desserts are just better? These mini pudding parfaits are just so cuuuute, aren’t they? (Spoiler alert: They also taste delicious.)

I actually made these dessert in mini wine tasting glasses I had on hand. They just so happen to be the perfect size for mini pudding parfaits! These mini mason jarsThese mini pudding parfaits are simple to make and the sprinkles just make them so cute!  would also work perfectly (and I love that they have lids).

You can completely customize this recipe and get really creative. I used the classic Nilla Wafer cookies to make a cookie crumb crust at the bottom. Then I layered homemade vanilla pudding, jimmies (sprinkles), and whipped cream. But you can do any cookie crumble (Oreo would be so good!) and any flavor of pudding you like. You get the idea, have fun with it! This combo reminds me of my childhood which just makes it taste extra sweet. :) (more…)

Marshmallow Cereal Donuts

I love baking special holiday treats for my kiddos. What I don’t love? Having creative ideas that land me 2+ hours cleaning up in the kitchen. (Tell me this has happened to you too. I’ll feel better if it has.) I recently wanted to whip up fun some St. Patrick’s Day recipes, and I was thrilled to partner with PAM Cooking Spray to come up with a recipe that was delicious and left me more time to enjoy with my family (vs. standing over the sink).

What did I whip up? The luckiest donuts you ever did see! Check out these Lucky Charms donuts!

These donuts are made with Funfetti cake mix, which means not only were they super simple to mix up, but they are also super fun! (more…)

Pineapple + Pretzel Chocolate Bark

It’s not unusual that I get a weird idea and then head to the kitchen. That’s exactly how this chocolate bark assembly began. I thought … hmmmm what if I made a salty-sweet bark and tossed in some candied pineapple for good measure. Heck, why not?!
