Get all the details HERE at My Food and Family. Since this past Sunday was Mother’s Day, all the kids in Blaidd’s Gap got together and made big batches of these donuts for their moms. Liam, Micah, Cody, Joy, Gracie, and little Sally each appear in a book with their parents, but since they’re all living in Blaidd’s Gap, I thought we’d visit with them through MOON SHOT, the book where they all come together, Sally makes her entrance, and the Wolves finally find a home. Maybe. Anyway, this is a good time to reread MOON SHOT, if you already have it on your shelf. If you don’t, you might want to start at the beginning, but you can probably figure enough stuff out if you just jump into this on with both boots on. Trust me, it gets deep, so keep those boots handy! You can click on the title or the book cover and head on over to grab your copy! So…donuts. The big question of th day is: Creme-filled or plain?

  1. Mmm, donuts. Or doughnuts. Or whatever. I prefer them cream-filled. Or custard. Or jelly. Just plain glazed is okay. The ones with the cinnamon swirl (Persians?) covered in peanut butter frosting or maple frosting… :drool:

    Ahem. Where was I before the donut distraction? Oh yeah…

    Yay for the Blaidd’s Gap kids making donuts! I love those kids. And their folks. And all of your characters. =o)

      I ❤ the kids too. And donuts! And I'm seriously thinking about getting a pastry thingamajig just to make these! And when you don't have a shop nearby, these are an easy substitute!
