Apple Cider Doughnuts


Making the pumpkin spice doughnuts was fun and they turned out really well so I decided to try a recipe I found for apple cider doughnuts. One of the first stands visible at the farmers market, always front and center is also one of my favorites, apples, apple cider and doughnuts and it’s a favorite of mine and IMHO it epitomizes Fall. The recipe is from Bon Appetit and sounded really wonderful.

It was probably faith, but the day I cooked this dish, a friend of mine brought me some fresh horseradish.

Turns out you can match horseradish and asparagus with some Parmesan cheese and get a delicious dinner in no time!
