Old Fashion Sour Cream Donuts
For the donuts
  1. 2 1/4 cup cake flour
  2. 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  3. 1 tsp salt
  4. 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  5. 1/2 cup sugar
  6. 2 Tbsp butter, room temperature
  7. 2 large egg yolks
  8. 1/2 cup sour cream
  9. Canola oil, for frying
For the glaze
  1. 3 1/2 cup powdered sugar, sifted
  2. 1 1/2 tsp corn syrup
  3. 1/4 tsp salt
  4. 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  5. 1/3 cup hot water
  1. In a small bowl sift together the cake flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg.
  2. In a large mixing bowl beat the butter and sugar together until well combined (the texture will be sandy). Add the egg yolks and mix well. Add the dry ingredients in three batches, alternating with the sour cream, and ending with flour. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and chill for 1 hour.
  3. When the dough is almost finished chilling, make the glaze by whisking together all ingredients in a large shallow bowl.
  4. Remove the dough from the fridge and roll it out on a floured surface to about 1/2 inch thickness. Use a donut cutter (or two round biscuit cutters) to cut as many donuts out as possible. You should get around 12.
  5. Pour about 2 inches of canola oil into a heavy bottomed pot. Heat the oil to 325° F. Fry the donuts 2-3 at a time, being careful not to overcrowd the pot. Fry for about 2 minutes on each side, being careful not to let them burn. Remove them to a plate lined with paper towels to soak up the grease.
  6. Place a wire cooling rack above a sheet pan. Dip donuts in the glaze, covering on each side, and place on the wire rack. Let sit for 15-20 minutes until glaze is set.
  7. Donuts are best served immediately, but you may store them in an air tight container at room temperature for a few days.
  1. Use different sized cutters for larger/smaller donuts

growing up

So I'm in the very beginning stages of planning Taylor's new room. For some reason I've struggled with her room... It's the size and it doesn't have a proper closet. Kind of frustrating {ugh}. I asked her this time around if I could just surprise her and do it. She agreed! Yaaaaaa I think I'm more excited then she is! Just cross your fingers she likes everything... {mom problems}!

{Knott's Berry Farm 2016} 

I don't know about you, but I have moments where I literally lose it and realize I need to stop everything, recharge and have fun! It's not ok to take your frustrations out on the people you love the most. So when I get to the point where I'm not a nice mommy or I'm bitting off my nails... I know It's time to get out and play! For me all I need to do is just spend time with my little ones... And I become happy and whole again! So yesterday I stopped everything and took my kids to Knott's Berry Farm... I had tickets that I purchased a few months ago  so we decided to use them. Not going to lie that's not my first choice of excitement,  but they kids wanted to go! We laughed, we fought, we laughed some more {shhh fought a little more}... But over all the trip was once again an eye opening experience for me. It gave me time to listen to my little ones needs and for me to get out enjoy life {haha}! Seeing their happy faces at the end was all I needed! I think once every other week I need to do a recharge with my littles. I know they want to be with mommy more... And I definitely want to be when them more as well!  I call that a win, win in my books... {smile}! So my message to you all is... Get out and recharge so you can be happier and nicer to everyone around you!

I do know when I think something is fabulous I definitely want to share it with you all... So last week I ventured down to Ikea to pick up a rug for my little office space. Yes, I picked up the usual  {$1.99 100 pack of white napkins} and  no I didn't get a cinnamon roll this time... I swear {haha}! As I was checking out I noticed a huge bin full of dish towels for .79 cents each. I picked one up and my mind started racing... Oh my I need new kitchen towels mine look like I washed the car last week with them. Just being honest here... Then all of a sudden I thought they would look adorable at a farm table as dinner napkins. They're chunky and sturdy yet delicate and simple. Absolutely perfect! So I   took the plunge and stuffed my cart with 12 of them. 8 for dinner parties and 4 for the kitchen. Oh if you really want to take these towels over the top... Get them monogrammed. The skies the limit {love}!  I have to go back to Ikea for a couple more things... So I'm definitely going to get more! If I were you I would run not walk to get these dish towels... Enjoy this deal!
