Canadian Fried Dough

A unique doughnut made with whole-wheat flour and covered in cinnamon sugar from our great neighbors to the North.

Bake on Saturday: Vanilla Peach Cupcakes (for Four)

A mini-batch of cupcakes filled with sweet peaches and scented with vanilla. I live an apartment with three other young women (I was about to say girls, but the feminist parts of my brain are trying to get myself to stop using that term to describe fully grown adult females), which is great.  Except we… Continue reading Bake on Saturday: Vanilla Peach Cupcakes (for Four)
