Apple Cider Baked Donuts

So I made a little mistake with these donuts…. I accidentally deleted all of the pictures of them.  I was backing up all of my pictures for the site onto my external hard drive and I thought they were finished copying but apperently they weren’t and as soon as I cleared my trashbin, I realized I lost at least 2 posts pictures that weren’t backed up.  Whoops! I was able to have my trashbin recovered thanks to a little Linux utility TestDisk but I found out I had three pictures saved to Google Drive because I had posted them on Instagram so I just went with those! I don’t have any pictures of the other post, Apple Pie Energy Bites, but I was planning on making another batch of them anyway because they were an awesome breakfast!


So back to the Apple Cider Baked Donuts.  They are realllllly good and I would definitely make them again! I used the Slow Cooker Spiced Apple Cider I made a little while back and it was so perfect in there!

Pumpkin French Madeleines

Now I am a huge fan of french pastries and treats! I first fell in love with French Madeleines in high school.  Whenever I went to my friend’s house, they would always have madeleines from Costco and they were just so amazing! Light and fluffy little buttery shell-shaped cakes that just melt in your mouth when you take a bite.  I could easily eat a whole tin of them myself! This was actually my first time making them myself and I was so happy with how they turned out! I was expecting them to be much more difficult to make than they were so that was a pleasant surprise! Make sure you pick up a madeleine tin before you make them, I got one off of Amazon for just a few dollars!

Slow Cooker Apple Pie Oatmeal

Slow Cooker Apple Pie Oatmeal – An easy slow cooker breakfast idea that tastes just like an apple pie! Made with fresh apples, apple pie spice, apple cider, and oatmeal! Simple to make and it’s a great way to feed a crowd!

Slow Cooker Apple Pie Oatmeal

Slow cooker meals are the best! I love just popping a few ingredients into my slow cooker and coming home a few hours later to a finished meal! I have 3 slow cookers, I am just kinda obsessed! Last week, I made Slow Cooker Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal for breakfast and it was great because I would just grab a scoop every morning pour some almond milk on top along with some coconut sugar and walnuts.  It was a big improvement over my regular breakfast, prepackaged oatmeal.  Oatmeal has been my go-to breakfast for years because it is so easy to whip up in the morning before class.  I am not a huge morning person and kinda wander around aimlessly until I have had a few cups of coffee!


Until last year when I made Slow Cooker Pecan Pie Oatmeal, I really had no idea you could make things in a slow cooker that were not savory.  I was so excited that I did a lot of experimenting on different slow cooker recipes from fruit crisps to apple butter.

Slow Cooker Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

Slow Cooker Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal – All of your favorite pumpkin pie flavors in a filling bowl of oatmeal made in a slow cooker!

Oatmeal is a staple breakfast at my house.  I eat it every day before school and I have posted a lot of different recipes for it on here from the Strawberries and Cream Steel Cut Oatmeal, Slow Cooker Pecan Pie Oatmeal, and Blueberry Banana Baked Oatmeal! I love how filling it is and that it is so customizable! My favorite one I have made is definitely this Slow Cooker Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal! It really did taste just like a slice of pumpkin pie! I would heat up a little bowl in the morning and top it with a bit of coconut sugar and chopped walnuts.  This recipe ended up being seven whole breakfasts for me! I am planning on doing Slow Cooker Apple Pie Oatmeal next to use up a whole bunch of apples I have in the fridge! Hopefully that one turns out great!


Slow cooker meals are seriously the best.  All I had to go was pop in all of the ingredients and then stirred it on occasion just to see how it was doing.  When I made this, I ended up going over to check on it after two hours and realized my slow cooker was not on…. whoops! That was a little bit of an accident but it ended up working out anyway!

 

 

Slow Cooker Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups steel cut oats

Baked Pumpkin Spice Donuts – A simple, yet flavorful fall breakfast! Pumpkin donuts baked to perfection and covered in cinnamon sugar!


I can’t believe it is already fall! It doesn’t feel like it’s fall unless it is filled with all of my favorite seasonal flavors like pumpkin! To celebrate, I decided to make these Baked Pumpkin Spice Donuts for brunch and wow, they are so good!

Of course I want my coffee to taste like a REESE’S Peanut Butter Cup! Yum! There is also an International Delight® Sugar-Free Pumpkin Pie Spice variety too that I can’t wait to try out!

 

 

 

These donuts are so easy to make and really taste wonderful! Have you used a donut pan before? It’s one of my favorite things to use right now, it makes donut making so easy!

Cranberry Walnut Bagels

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #OurCaringHands #SoftsoapTouch #CollectiveBias

 


Since I was little, my mom and I would go and get bagels every weekend.  It was always so much fun and we looked forward to it all week! My favorite were blueberry bagels and hers were cranberry walnut.  I would always end up making a mess spreading on the cream cheese and would have to wash off my hands at the end with soap leaving my hands dry and cracked.

 

For Mother’s Day this year, I decided to change things up and make Cranberry Walnut Bagels right at home! I hadn’t made bagels for many years so it was a fun, new experience for us to try together!

 

We hopped in the car and went to our local Target to get ingredients for the bagels that we did not have such as the cranberries and walnuts along with some more soap since we knew we were going to make a complete mess. We picked up some SoftSoap® Hand Wash Plus Lotion™ Shea & Cocoa Butter and SoftSoap® Hand Wash Plus Lotion™ Orchid & Coconut Milk to use to wash all of the dough off of our hands while we were making the bagels and fell in love! It was super easy to find, right in the soap aisle by the other hand washes. There was also one other scent that sounded incredible, the SoftSoap® Hand Wash Plus Lotion™ Aloe Water & Lime.

I think I ended up washing my hands about 10-15 times during the process and came out with my hands actually feeling nicer than they did before I washed them! Plus Lotion is the only hand wash with a touch of lotion inside so your hands feel so soft and smooth, yet also not greasy! My favorite scent was the Shea & Cocoa Butter with it’s complex and indulgent scent! It was so lovely! It was really exciting to find a new, great product that we both love!

 

We were so happy with how these bagels ended up turning out (and of course, how soft our hands were after all of those washes!).  The bagels were delicious and much simpler than I expected!

It was the perfect Mother’s Day treat for my mother and it brought back so many good memories of our bagel trips together!

 

Cranberry Walnut Bagels

Ingredients:

  • 1 packet instant dry yeast
  • 1 tbsp + 1 tsp granulated sugar
  • ½ + ¾ cup warm water
  • 2 cups bread flour
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ cup dried cranberries
  • ½ cup chopped raw walnuts

 

Directions:

  1. In a small bowl, combine yeast, ½ water, and 1 tbsp sugar. Stir and let sit for 10 minutes.
  2. While that is sitting, combine flour, salt, and remaining sugar in a large bowl or stand mixer. Stir to combine.
  3. Pour in yeast mixture and remaining water and mix until a dough is formed. Pour in walnuts and cranberries and continue to mix until fully combined.
  4. Place dough on a lightly floured surface and knead for 10-15 minutes.
  5. Transfer dough to a lightly greased bowl and cover. Let rise for 1 hour or until it has doubled in size.
  6. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees and fill a large pot 2/3 of the way up with water and bring to a simmer, not a boil.
  7. Move dough back to lightly floured surface and punch down dough. Let sit for 20 more minutes.
  8. Split dough into 8 evenly sized pieces and roll into a ball. Poke a hole in the middle of each piece of dough with your finger and work on spreading the hole so it has a width of about 1 inch. Transfer to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and let rise 20 minutes.
  9. Transfer bagels to pot of water with a slotted spoon for 1-2 minutes (they should float). Do it in two batches, 4 at a time so they aren’t over crowded.
  10. Transfer bagels back to baking sheet and place in the oven. Cook for 18-20 minutes or until the top is slightly brown.

Vanilla Latte Cinnamon Rolls

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #LatteMadeEasy #CollectiveBias

I was so excited to find out about International Delight® One Touch Latte™ this week! I absolutely adore lattes but I don’t love is the price tag, I don’t want to pay $5 for one tiny drink! It’s a simple new way to make a latte at home! You can get 7 uses out of each can (which is a great deal!) and it is SO easy to make! It is the first ever frothing coffee creamer so it tastes like it came straight from a coffeehouse!


I popped over to my local Walmart to pick up a One Touch Latte™. They had all three of the flavors (vanilla, caramel, and mocha) right in the refrigerated section by the creamers. Very easy to find. I ended up grabbing the vanilla and caramel, both of which sounded right up my alley!

For Mother’s Day this year, we decided to do a big spread with my contribution being Vanilla Latte Cinnamon Rolls and some homemade lattes (using One Touch Latte™, of course) for everyone! They are quick and easy to make so you don’t have to spend all day in the kitchen making brunch, instead, you can spend more time with your mom! Can I just say how delicious the frosting on the cinnamon rolls was? I used the Vanilla One Touch Latte™ in the frosting and wow! It added the perfect amount of flavor! They ended up the star of the show and disappeared within minutes! My mom absolutely loved them!

My mom ended up falling in love with the caramel but my favorite was the vanilla! I tried using it a cup of Traverse City cherry coffee and it was wonderful! All I had to do was shake, point, and press! No stirring, just an instant, frothy latte! This has been taking my coffee to a whole new level and makes me feel like a barista!
