This past weekend was a busy one for us, we had our first-ever Pop-Up shop at Modern Nostalgia, a women’s boutique here in Buffalo. It went really well, it was a ton of fun and we were very happy with how it all came together. However, after working from home for the last 10 or so months, I forgot how exhausting retail can be, talking with people all day, being on your feet, etc.

Since our pop-up shop ran from Thursday night until Saturday night, it was three days that we were away from our computers and our client work and three days I was away from the kitchen. That’s a lot for me when I am in town and not on the road somewhere. So, Friday morning when we woke up, I decided to whip up another batch of these donuts that I had made once before, and both Mark and I loved. The first time I made them they came out delicious, but I didn’t realize that you are supposed to only fill the slots in your donut pan about 3/4 of the way full, so they were more like muffins with holes through the middle. They batter rose so much it just closed off the hole on top. I was a little bummed out, but they were so delicious we happily gobbled them up, knowing that I would just have to make them again really soon. Darn!
