My sister Kristen, better known as Auntie, loves to do things for her nieces and nephews. She plans fun activities all of the time. For example, Auntie takes them for ice cream, has sleepovers, schedules playdates which include her dogs, and organizes an arts and crafts afternoon. When she isn't scheduling fun time, she bakes for her nieces and nephews. Today after school the kids were surprised when they walked into the kitchen to see a big plateful of Auntie's homemade donuts.
I had the privilege of helping her create these scrumptious donuts. Not only did I get some amazing pictures of the whole process, but also I got to spend the day in the kitchen with my sister. We made more than donuts, we made memories, too!
Auntie prepared the dough the night before we baked. This recipe comes from the classic book The Joy of Cooking which was my Grandmother's go-to cookbook.
If you feel like adding a little extra sweetness to your donuts fill them with your favorite jelly.
Spend some time in the kitchen with somebody you love. You will appreciate the food you prepare and, more importantly, the memories shared for a lifetime.
