cream cheese frosting

We've hunted high and low for a cream cheese frosting that is "thick enough" for our preferences -- like decorating cake kind of thickness. This seems to do the trick for us. We use it for homemade oreo cookies too.  read more »

doughnuts

None of my recipe books have a good yeast doughnut recipe, just cake doughnuts, so off to the internet we went. I modified it slightly to fit our needs. And I thought of our niece, Megan, the whole time we made these. Mmm.  read more »
