    I have been thinking about those donuts since I saw them this morning!! I think they are a must try… I”ve never forayed into the gluten-free baking world, but I’m starting to look more closely at those recipes. This may be my first attempt!
    I’m eager to see your Grand Canyon pics!! I’ve never been there, and for the last 3 summers I’ve been saying, “How about the Grand Canyon??” Everyone says “Uh… no thanks.”. I think I”m going to make them go this summer… we’ll see!

      I do hope you try the doughnuts {and other gluten-free baking} Kim! The nice thing about these doughnuts are that there are only 2 different gluten-free flours involved, so not too complicated lie some recipes. Also, the Grand Canyon is a MUST! I had been to a different spot back in my teens & I think my parents took me there as a little kid, but I had never seen it covered in snow-absolutely gorgeous! I am dying go back with my kids and husband soon. Hopefully you can convince your family to go, otherwise a “girl’s trip” is a lot of fun 🙂

    You know, the million times I went to the Grand Canyon, I never hiked in at all. I just enjoyed the inside from afar:-) My very dear friend said it was amazing, did you have an amazing time too? Okay seriously, those doughnuts look AMAZING, BUT that glaze has me drooling:-) They look fab! Happy New Year my sweet friend, Hugs, Terra

    First off, that leg lamp is BRILLIANT! What a great stocking stufffer. Now on the must-make list – those donuts (need to get me a donut pan) and your Cara Cara salsa – craving all types of citrus/avocado combos this time of year

      So glad you like the leg lamp too Deanna! And, yes, you definitely must get a doughnut pan! I can’t say I’ll be making doughnuts every weekend, because they are definitely on the indulgent side, but once a month can’t hurt 🙂 Cara Cara oranges are my favorites-so happy they’re back in season!

      We loved the polenta Kiersten! I adapted it a little, by making it like a lasagna with a layer of ricotta pureed with spinach-delicious! Thanks so much for the inspiration!

    I love the sound of the cantaloupe ginger juice! So refreshing!
    I did the Color Run one year. What a fun thing to do with your family!

    Look at your adorable family! I would love to do one of those runs. The lamp is awesome. How can that not make you smile?! I am with you- need my weekly meal plans to make it through the week even though I have been slacking more than usual. It happens. 😉

      The masala peas are delicious Melinda. I brought them on a ladies New Year’s Day hike and my friends and I gobbled them up!

    Ooh where to start food or travel? Grand canyon, we may go this summer so I’m curious to hear more, love Sedona. We are in VT most weekends (ok all) this winter, going to MExico in March hopefully with book turned in, Jazz Fest in May in New Orleans and that’s as far as we are. Love your meal plans. that polenta concept is making me curious. Happy right now…left over grass-fed beef meatloaf for lunch, csa box filled with goodies…

    I love your weekly meal plans, so happy to see ’em back! And how fun that you did the Color Run – we had one here in Nashville but I was out of town that weekend. I heard it was a blast!
