National Donut Day 🍩🍩🍩

Okay, so I know this is two days late, but I’ve been crazy busy with the “Fifty Things” project.

June 3rd was National Donut Day and I was super excited because I’ve been staring at a can of biscuits debating if I’d ever do anything with them. Biscuit Donuts for the win! 

My only problem was I didn’t have chocolate for a glaze. It was a sad five minutes, but after doing a little Pinterest hunting I found the perfect Maple Glaze recipe. So these taste like a waffle with the texture of a cake donut. Yay!!

For your biscuit donuts you’ll need

  • A can of biscuits
  • A circular item to cut out the center (I couldn’t find my cookie cutter, so I ended up using a flask funnel)
  • Oil for frying

For your glaze you’ll need

  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 8 tbsp maple syrup 
  • 1-2 tbsp milk
  1. The first thing you want to do is open your biscuits and separate them on whatever work surface you’re using. Mine was a baking sheet. 
  2. Once you’ve divided up your biscuits, start hearing your oil. You want enough oil to just cover your biscuit when it’s in the pot. 
  3. Turn your biscuits in the oil and remove once golden. I didn’t have any tongs or anything like that to remove my donuts, so I used the handle of a wooden spoon. Whatever works. 
  4. While your donuts are cooling, combine and whisk all of your glaze ingredients together.
  5. Once the donuts are completely cooled, dunk them in your glaze and let harden. The glaze is very thin, I’m not sure what description to use. I suggest adding a little more powdered sugar for a thicker glaze. 

Just delicious! I have no regrets!! Here’s a picture of the funnel I used to make the holes. Just in case some of you have no idea as to what I was talking about. 

Happy Two Days Late Donut Day!! 🍩

You’re Killing Me Smalls

“How can I have some s’more if I haven’t had any yet?”

It’s been a little while since I posted last, and I was hoping that I wouldn’t be sharing back to back recipes, but oh well.

I got super excited when I saw that Sandlot was on Netflix. I already own the DVD, but sometimes it’s nice to just be able to chill in bed and watch the movie. You know, without all the stupid previews and potential for skipping because I watch it so damn much.

Which is why I had to make some S’mores Pie!


I’ve never made pie, and this is definitely not actually pie. More like a gooey, delicious mess. But does it really matter, it’s s’mores. Big thank you to Club Chica Circle for the awesome recipe.

So here’s the super easy recipe.



Waffle Eggs!!

Boy do I just adore Pinterest! Seriously, I never would have thought to use my waffle iron to make eggs. 

It’s quick, easy and the cleanup is super minimal.

Here’s the super easy directions for super fluffy waffle eggs!

  1. Spray your waffle maker with olive oil. This will make it way easier to remove your eggs.
  2. Whisk together your eggs, (I used two) milk and any other items you’d like to use. (I’ve used green pepper before, but for this one we kept it simple)
  3. Slowly pour your eggs into the waffle iron. If you pour too quickly it will splatter and make one hell of a mess. 
  4. Close your waffle iron and let cook for 2-3min, checking on them every 15-30sec. They cook super fast so do not walk away.
  5. See how fluffy they are! I use a spatula to shift them out. I tried a fork and it was a disaster. Ha
  6. Kevin likes his eggs sprinkled with cheese. Heads up the velveeta shredded cheeses are seriously the best. They’re so ridiculously melty!

Enjoy!!!

Prepare for Greatness

I have found the perfect recipe for pure comfort food indulgence!!

  
Seriously, I love me some pasta with Alfredo. This recipe subs out the pasta for gnocchi and it is so ridiculously good. Thank you Pinterest! Now I didn’t have any broccoli on hand, but you can bet that I’ll be adding it in next time.

I’m posting the recipe below, but for more yummy recipes you should check out Inside BruCrew Life

Ingredients 

  • 1/2 cup cooked bacon (chopped)
  • 2 cups cooked chicken (cubed)
  • 2 cups frozen broccoli
  • 1 15oz jar of Alfredo sauce
  • 3 cups Gnocchi
  • 1 1/2 cups mozzarella 

Directions

  1. Cook your gnocchi according to the package directions. Drain. Stir together the gnocchi, broccoli, chicken and Alfredo sauce. Spoon into a casserole dish. (I may have stirred it in the casserole dish, pretty big fan of less dishes)
  2. Top with mozzarella cheese and bake at 400 degrees for 20-22min. Turn oven to broil for 3-5min or until cheese starts to brown. (I sprinkled on extra cheese) The cheese will brown quickly so keep checking on it.
  3. Serve immediately.makes 6-8 servings.
