If there is one thing that this family loves, it is pizza. When we have pizza, we usually go out to enjoy it at a restaurant. However, this week my kids were really wanting...
Glazed Strawberry Donuts Recipe
For years, I have scheduled my family to go berry picking as soon as strawberries are in season. Some weekends my kids would rather veg out for a few hours with their video games or watching a movie and while we let them do that, they also spend an equal amount of time outside for every hour of screen time. We have a good balance.
I do have to schedule things. I have these kids who sometimes complain when I want to do something outside yet the temps are in the 90’s but that’s just life here in Georgia. So I occasionally have to drag them with me like I did to go berry picking a few weeks ago. The return trip home was filled with excited voices discussing all of the things that we could do with these huge strawberries besides just eat them whole. Those voices include my husband and myself.
The plan was to make something good with the strawberries and this year the family picked a strawberry donuts recipe. We made these truly delicious baked and glazed strawberry donuts with those berries that we picked so it was really a farm to table experience all on our own. This really gave my kids perspective and a great love of strawberries.
