just wait!

I need to get back on a regular schedule.  Pronto!

Being up for 1 night until 4:45am, really threw me off.  I got about 5hrs of sleep and somehow right now, am not tired.  Maybe it’s excitement over a new recipe that just popped out of the oven.  Or maybe it’s the excitement of holding my niece for the very first time!

Either way, I need to get in bed, soon!

But first, a teaser.

And a little about our weather, which has been INsane lately.  Raining every single day?  In the summer?  In Colorado?  And not just rain, but thunderstorms?  This is ca-razy.  The mornings start off gorgeous and by late afternoon the dark clouds start rolling in over the mountains.  It’s been doing this for a good two weeks and even pretty steadily before that.  What is UP!?

On our way to the hospital for a visit!  Crazy skies.

Kitchen time.  I finally used my donut pan!  Why did it take me a whole week to bust this thing out??  Maybe I was scared.  Maybe I just needed a little push from Mama Pea’s donut magic.

As soon as we got home, I literally dropped my bag, turned the oven on and started baking.  I had an idea on the brain, and I couldn’t wait to test it out.

It’s a throwback to a childhood sandwich, donut style.

Randomly about a month ago, I threw together my first gluten free baked good recipe with oat flour + sweet rice flour + coconut flour [gooey breakfast cakes].  It seems to be a great combination, that leads to a very cake-like, moist, texture.  Gluten free success!

This recipe is only half complete.  The toppings will be added later this morning, along with the recipe reveal.

Despite their being no toppings, this donut was everything I was hoping for all on it’s own.

If you just can’t wait for the recipe, go check out Mama Pea’s S’more Donuts.  Prepare yourself to drool.

Lights out!
