My poor Baby Chloe, she's pooped. You've gotta be really tired to sleep like that. But when you have a day filled with chewing your rawhide bone, wrestling with mommy's scarf and chasing your treats around the floor, it's a full day.
The Super Bowl was FANTASTIC!! What a game, we spent the last 2 minutes of the game pacing back and forth. The STEELERS rule!! My party menu consisted of the Pizza I blogged about in the last post, Pulled Pork Sandwiches and Homemade Potato Rolls with baked beans and cole slaw and Carols Teriyaki Chicken Wings , if you haven't had the Teriyaki Chicken make them , they were the hit of the party and didn't hang around long! Dessert was Paula's Mocha Caramel Brownies, a moist chewy lusciously rich brownie topped with a Mocha Cream Cheese Frosting. Oh Paula these were FANTASTIC!!!
My picture isn't nearly as good as Paula's, so go visit her and check out her picture and the recipe!
Today I decided to make Baked Apple Donuts, the recipe calls them donuts but to me they're muffins. Wonderful muffins that are rolled in butter and cinnamon sugar after they're baked.
Oh how I love apples and cinnamon. Grace loves cinnamon so much that she has an event that I'm going to submit these to called "Cinnamon Celebration"
You have until Friday February 13 at 12 midnight to get your entry in. Your recipe, (preferably a recipe you haven't blogged about before), should have at least 1 tsp of cinnamon in it. Send your entry to Grace at asoutherngrace @ gmail . com using the subject "Cinnamon Celebration" by February 13, along with a picture of your creation, your name, the name of your blog, and the link to your post. Grace can we submit more than one entry?? if we can there will be more coming from me!
This recipe came from A View of America recipe site. The next time I make these I'll add more apples (just because I love them), and replace the nutmeg with cinnamon , I'm not real fond of nutmeg and prefer cinnamon. Actually this recipe didn't have cinnamon in the batter, I added it. I made regular sized muffins (6 ) and decided to make mini muffins( 6) as well, this is a very nice donut ....muffin recipe!
