You know how it goes, you want to make something special for Easter Sunday, but you need a little reassurance that you can pull it off. Fear not. As you will see in this quick cooking video, these Lemon Pound Cake Mini Doughnuts are totally within the realm of everyone’s culinary skills.
It’s really as simple as whipping together all of the ingredients for this lemon pound cake and then filling the tins. The best part about the recipe is that it totally works in both mini and regular sized muffin or donut pans.
I’ve made two batches of these donuts in the past week. One I froze without the icing (to prevent sticking) so I could have a few on hand for whenever we’re in the mood for a little treat. The other batch I set aside to pack for school lunch or serve as an after dinner dessert. I made the those with two different types of icings. Adding tart lemon juice to sweet powdered sugar makes for a flavorful clear glaze, while adding milk or cream to...
When one thinks of Easter, two things usually come to mind: bunnies and eggs. When planning my recipes for this year’s Easter brunch, I knew wanted to make something fun and which had a bit of whimsy for the kids. These Bacon, Egg and Cheese Bunnies fit the bill perfectly.
Just cook up some nice crispy bacon, boil a batch of eggs, and cut out triangles of your favorite cheddar cheese slices (you can even have your kids help you with this last step). The hardest part of the recipe is making the hard boiled eggs, which isn’t very difficult. But if you personally don’t find boiling eggs easy, this hard boiled egg recipe will show you how (I like using Safest Choice brand eggs because they are pasteurized, eliminating the risk of Salmonella).
As with all little bunnies, the ones in this recipe look totally cute, but they’re also delicious to eat. You get the creaminess of the egg, the smoky taste of the bacon, and the sharp saltiness of the cheese in...
Easter is upon us and (to me at least) that means a big family brunch with lots of scrumptious treats — especially for the kids! Pound Cake was always a favorite of mine as a child and I’ve been thinking of ways to put a new twist on it for Easter. When I was recently gifted Kitchen Aid Mini Doughnut pans at a kids cooking event, I couldn’t wait to get home and put them to good use for my pound cake experiment.
Baked (not fried!) these Lemon Pound Cake Mini Doughnuts are moist, delicate and lightly sweet. They may be small in size, but each one offers a burst of tart lemon flavor and is topped with a thin coat of icing (the icing part is totally up to you as these doughnuts are fall-off-the-chair good on their own).
No matter what you decide to make this Easter, I bet if you make these little gems they’ll be the first to go!

When the time comes and your little ones are old enough to go out in the world to eat where to take them can seem quite scary. I remember thinking I had no options other than McDonalds. And for me that just wasn’t an option. But I also knew that I didn’t want to drop $15.00 so my kid could have something healthy. So I did some research and came to realize that there really are some great “fast food” places where you can feed your kid a healthy meal and not break the bank. When you’re traveling, sometimes you may be stuck with fast food as your only option. Here are some ways to make better fast food choices that won’t break the bank.
This chain has branded themselves the company that does “Food with Integrity”. They really care about what they are serving. And not only what their customers consume but also how the workers who farmed the food are treated. They...
Kale that tastes like ice cream? Come on, is there any way that can be true? I didn’t believe it myself until the oh-so-fabulous Aussie blogger, The Blender Girl (aka Tess Masters), came over to my house to shoot this cooking video for her insanely cool, creamy and delicious kale-based smoothie recipe which none of us could stop drinking.
I first met Tess a few years ago at a commercial audition. I randomly sat down in the waiting room next to an absolutely beautiful woman and moments later, in an incredibly charming Australian accent, the woman blurted out, “oh my gosh, you’re Weelicious! I’m The Blender Girl”! TBG’s reputation preceded her, as for some time prior to this chance meeting, I had heard raves about her from our mutual friend Elise “Simply Recipes” Bauer. I immediately understood why Elise loves her so — I was enchanted by Tess from the very first minute we started talking. She’s smart, funny, beautiful inside...
