Eating – Doughnuts Again!

October 11, 2010 04:46 by ehouston

Better Homes and Gardens has long been my favorite magazine to keep on hand.  Since I was little and I flipped through my mom’s copies of this magazine I have always discovered all kinds of interesting recipes, crafts and lovely homes to ponder.  To this day, BHG is the only magazine subscription I refuse to do without…no matter how tight the budget gets!  Yes, I just like it that much.

Well, BHG has done it again.  This latest issue has alternative uses for bacon!  From the moment I flipped the page and read the article title I started thinking, hey this is right up my alley.  I have had the bacon in double chocolate cookies a la The Hot Chocolatier (fab-U-Lusssssss!) and I have heard of baking it with a brown sugar coating to use it in other recipes.  But, when I saw this suggestion I made sure to buy the ingredients the next day and get started right away on this hot little number.

I was already drooling while standing in the check-out line.  For those of you that do not know, I am a total Baconphile (yeah, I just made that up)!  I love, love, LOVE bacon.  I would say it’s the meat (if you can call it that) which has held me back from being a vegetarian.  (Pa-shaw!  Hee!)  But, to add it to one of my other all time favorite foods….WHAT!?!….this is just crazy!  I thought my head was going to explode.  (I know, I like food way to much).

So, here is my version of this delicious concoction:

As you can see mine never made it to the plate.  They were sooo good!  Rich does not even begin to describe them, but they are worth all 800+ calories for a one time indulgence.

Aw, come on.  You know you want to try it too!

Eating: “Doughnuts”

April 26, 2010 08:55 by ehouston

I had a craving for doughnuts and this is what transpired.

I pulled some things together that I though might work.  Dough, of course, and some toppings.  Powdered sugar, cinnamon sugar and a little OJ mixed with powdered sugar to make a citrus glaze.

Holes were cut in the Pillsbury Grands Biscuits.  (Yes, they were whole wheat!  Because these were healthy doughnuts!….right, right…)

Some frying happened too.  It was so fast, the picture came out blurry.  ;o)

And, at last the eating commenced.  YUM!

I am beginning to think that all Pillsbury refrigerator dough has been sent from heaven for us to use in any and all crazy concoctions.  (Check out my chicken empanadas post here for another idea.)  It never fails to come out tasting wonderful, no matter what you make with it.

Have you guys ever used any of the Pillsbury products to make something completely different from what they originally intended?  Do share, I am always up for a new kitchen project.
