Carrot Cake Baked Doughnuts with Mascarpone Frosting

Whether you spell it doughnut or donut, that's what we're talking about today! I am a bit partial to doughnut because of my blog being DOUGHvelopment, but either way you spell it I'll eat them up! I am still testing recipes for a basic doughnut recipe, I think I have finally found it, but in the mean time I am sharing a carrot cake baked doughnut recipe I came across!

Pistachio and Goat Cheese Cookies Filled with Lemon Curd


I put cheese in cookies. And pistachios. And then filled them with lemon curd. What is this madness? I don't know and I feel like a hypocrite once again after telling you how I like things simple, but here I go with the kooky recipes. I guess people do really change….*philosophical pondering*. See originally these were going to be just pistachio and goat cheese, somewhat simple, but upon tasting them, I felt they needing something to "cut" the creaminess of the goat cheese. That came in the form of lemon curd, which turned these cookies into a delightfully light and springy treat!

Strawberry - Coconut Butter Truffles

Photographing brown lumps is hard, but making them look appetizing? Now that is difficult, which is why I went with two pre-dip photos. So what are these lumps? They are "healthy" candy! See, I have a new habit. A candy eating habit. More specifically eating frozen candy. And it is beginning to become a problem because I am eating way too much of it. In the past I used to enjoy a piece of candy here and there, but recently it is more like enjoy a piece one minute and another the next minute, or sometimes sooner. In the meantime, I came across this recipe for "healthy" candy! YOU BET I HAD TO TRY IT!
