I'm gonna pat myself on the back for a second here, and your reward for bearing with me is a good amount of donut porn. I've come a long way from my first donuts- delicious pumpkin spice donuts that looked like piles of dog poo. I mean look at this:
|I'm filled with a weird combination of pride and shame. Delicious shame.|
I didn't really know what I was doing at the time, but I knew that I was in love. So I started to test out a recipe or two, and the next thing you know, I'm writing up my own recipes.

It's mind boggling when I stop to think about it.
* I'm lying a little here- Joe Pastry just might be the best baking reference site out there. There are a million explanations and tips on that site that are just GOLD for the self-taught baker.
But enough horn tootin'! Here's what I've been working on. You'll have to forgive me, I downloaded a bunch of ridiculous photo apps yesterday, and I think I may have gone a wee bit overboard. Prepare yourself.

The honey donuts are my proudest "invention" so far, even more so than the Dark and Stormies. I figure I'm going to need a signature flavor when I start my donut business, something simple but something great, and I think this one fits the bill.
I love donuts and I love how happy people are when I deliver them an order of freshly made gluten free donuts. I love that my boyfriend's niece associates my name with donuts. I can't wait to open up shop so you can try them too.
