Homemade Sparkling Strawberry Soda

There is about a month of school left until summer. Summer as in the time of year where I complain about how hot it is, but oddly enough, after this winter I will happily welcome the season of sweat and swimsuits! Now is just the beginning of "crunch time", which means professors decide to make all work due at the same time and my stress level sky rockets. So, does my chocolate and general sugar consumption.

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!
