A Couple of Recipes

I have been baking lately. (These look darker than they are) They are donut muffins.
They taste just like the cake donuts just not fried. I am now looking for the donut pans
I have seen a thousand times so I can make these into donuts. I got a lot of comments wanting the recipe for the bread. No knead Crusty bread here. and here are the muffins. I am loving
the king Arthur flour site.

Our little tiny garden is giving like crazy we are picking a cuke a day but today 4
I have made pesto several times from our basil, I need to make a big batch for the freezer.
We are waiting for our tomatos to turn red. I will be making sauce and freezing that also.

Summer is really going fast by the second week in august we are starting to wind
down.

I saw my first colored leaves while kayaking sooo very sad:(
We have been very warm but today threatened to rain all day. tonight
it is now raining and chilly.
***
I have been washing wool.In that wool was a couple of beautiful plaid skirts.
I was reading the tag and feeling very badly about washing and cutting up
those floor length  skirts. Buuuut then I see the waist is 26 inches ok
I don't feel bad any more. I think I had a 26 in waist at birth.

Thank you for such a warm welcome for David he was so excited he woke me out of a dead sleep
to tell me all about it. Bloggers are the most amazing people.

Discover the blessings you already have.

I absolutely love no knead bread. I make it all the time. The donut muffins look delicious. I have my eye on donut pans as well. Summer for me always flies by. I'll be back to school before I know it. I really do enjoy my summers off.

We've had so much heat and not enough rain so this years garden is about a bust -- I have gotten some tomatoes and basil though and have enjoyed the heck out them.

Come by for a visit -- I am hosting a cookbook/Apron set giveaway :)

Hi Cathy, I just wonder does it have to be King Arthur flour does it make a difference? Everything looks super yummy! I am inspired.

Rebecca said...

Yum! Cake donuts are my favorite, I am going to try these. I have a ton of basil in my tiny garden, what recipe are you using for pesto? I never thought of that!

Cathy-
I am an EARLY morning person.
I allow myself the guilty pleasure of a leisurely coffee (or 2) while perusing my 'usuals' (bloglist). I may not comment often, but I am taking a few moments this morning to say 'THANK YOU' for your Random Bits that I have come to enjoy!
How do you freeze your pesto? I do mine by Tbsp in ice cube trays, then pop the frozen 'cubes' out into zip-lock bags for easy storage in 'measured' amounts!

Cathy, I too saw my first colored leaves of the season, I am not ready for Fall I feel as though summer is just beginning. Cake donuts sound wonderful, I just love King Arthur, you can drop some serious money when you visit their Vermont Store! Greetings from Maine, Julie.

Our little garden is just starting to get going. Tomatoes in a few weeks I think..then peppers. That's it..that's all I planted...I feel guilty...Thanks for the recipes!

You're a dab-hand at baking, the donut muffins look fab.
Nothing tastes better than home grown cukes - Full of flavour and love. (Sadly, I haven't any this year as the monsoon weather has kept me from the garden.)
Goodness, leaves colouring already..what ever happened to Summer?
Have a great week.
