I woke up to a tiny human asking if we could make donuts this morning, and after a long and stressful week, of course my answer was YES. I love that Tan values a slow morning at home playing with 16283 of his "favorite toys," playing outside, watching a show, and helping be my sous chef. Those are definitely a few of my favorite things when it comes to Saturday morning.

With that, I made Rocky Road Donuts and Strawberry Ginger Donuts; both dairy and gluten free.
