Fried Twists

I had saved half the dough from my lemon bun recipe so early Saturday morning, I decided to use it to make doughnuts. The little rings were formed and left to rise with no problems. But when I had to take them up to fry, they all deflated! Oh well, thinking quick, I just decided to make a variation so I ended up with a ring, a braid, a pretzel, a twist and a handful of doughnut balls. All were tossed in granulated sugar except for the small doughnut balls, which had a cinnamon sugar coating. All were delicious though! What a way to start the day - freshly fried dough! But can somebody teach me how to make perfectly risen doughnuts?

Hey wow! You've made a passable version of a "koeksister"!! Only the koeksisters would have been dunked in sugar syrup as soon as they emerged from the oil. Looks really delicious - can't go wrong with fried dough and cinnamon sugar ;-)

How do you juggle it all :( ?

I just feel that I don't have enough time - for the husband and  much less for myself!

During the workday, I make sure I try to go home on time so I could spend a couple of hours with A, and put him to bed. Then it's time to have my last pump at about 9pm before I just want to  zone out and crash.  The boy wakes up at least 3 times ever since his last leap when he learnt how to stand. Additionally, he fell really ill for the first time (i.e. antibiotics).  Prior to that, he cries 1-2 times but easily soothed with pacifier or with some milk. Because of these frequent interrupted sleep, the man and I took turns to fall ill as well, and it is difficult to recover. I still have the head colds and occasionally coughing spells.

On weekends, our schedule revolves around family events, and then I try to plan so that A can try to get a nap or 2 as well as to plan our routes throughout the day so I would end up somewhere comfortable to pump when I needed to.  Often the nap part fails,…

OOOh, new flavour!

I have been eating Quest nutrition protein bars for years! I love the taste and they are less guilty than the real deal.  The flavours are pretty spot on and they are available at  I recently shared about this site as well.

I eat at least one of them a day to satisfy that sweet tooth. My favourites so far are the cinnamon roll and smores.  But I'm excited that a new flavour has been launched and can't wait for the Oatmeal Chocolate Chip flavour to arrive!
