Rock Candy Rainbow Donuts

It has been raining here non stop.  I seriously can't remember the last time we saw the sun, which is quite frankly starting to make me go bananas.  I don't think I would handle living in a climate where there are gloomy skies and rain all the time, this girl needs sunshine!  But then again I'm reminded of that old saying "you can't have a rainbow without a little rain", and I realize sometimes you need a good storm to see the bright beginnings.  But, while I am waiting on … [Read more...]

Cute and Simple Donut Themed Party

I have partnered with Hobby Lobby to create this post. All ideas are 100% my own.

Cinnamon Swirl Cake Doughnuts

We are fortunate to live in the middle of farm country in CT. We have Christmas tree farms to our right and left, blueberries and strawberries growing in our front yard and corn fields to the back. But the best part besides all of that local produce being within walking distance, is the homemade ice cream. Every year, they … [Read more...]
