This morning was hot, rainy and completely perfect. Spring days will soon be full of colour and life, and I can hardly wait. In honour of the season I baked some vanilla bean citrus doughnuts. The recipe was a simple yeasted dough enriched with a bit of extra fat to make it crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. I grated in some lemon zest and scraped in the vanilla seeds for extra flavour. They’re not your typical Tim’s or Krispy Cream, these dough boys are full of tradition, similar to a French beignet.

Now that I have a little more free time from work, I can begin to enjoy life’s little pleasures like tea cups, rainy days, and bonbons. After all this year has been, its nice to stop, look around the kitchen and think hmmmm I feel like making something delectable today. Which is exactly what happened. On this rainy day the kitchen counter consisted of a loaf of bread, a bunch of bananas and some bourbon. Since I didn’t feel adventurous enough to make a bread truffle, I settled for a banana bourbon bonbon. Paired with organic 72% dark, this chocolate is a unique treat. Enjoy!
