Vegan airfryer donuts

Vegan Air Fried Donuts I have been experimenting trying to get the best tasting vegan donuts cooked in the Airfryer. I don’t deep fry. and there a no good donut stores close to where I live so attempted to make some.  There are lots of donut recipes on the internet I am not good at following recipes and don’t want to bother with things like rolling out dough. I also wanted to get more of a donut shop texture versus baked. The yeast and baking powder works really well.  This recipe is good I am the only one that has tried them though.  I do not usually measure ingredients which is why I don’t bake but I tried so you can make them and give me some feedback.

After a few hours it will look like this. This is a fun dough to play with it doesn’t fall apart easily. Add a little olive oil before shaping the dough.  I tried cooking some but it was better after being in the fridge overnight.  After letting it sit in the fridge overnight I stuf

Day Trip to Harrison Hot Springs

I have rarely left the city where I lived for the last 7 months as we are in a pandemic. This is a day trip to Harrison Hot Springs which is a little less than a 2 hour drive from where I live.  Video on YouTube  Thankfully I live in an area that has low virus cases and local travel is allowed. My mom and I both have not left our houses for more than a few hours a day and were concerned that we would run into issues of needing a bathroom. When I was younger we would often spend a few days in Harrison so we know the area. The resort is very nice but we currently wanted a place to go for a few hours.

Our intention was to go for the drive, have lunch, walk near the lake and come home. We were not sure if the hotel and restaurants would be open due to Covid restrictions and knew the public pool was clo
