Kracie Happy Kitchen Donuts Kit ハッピーキッチンドーナツ



English (Español abajo)


Have you ever heard of Kracie’s adorable candy kits? They’re these super cute candy kits from Japan that you can use to make candy versions of waffles, sushi, hamburgers, and in this case, donuts! I’ve seen tons of YouTube videos showcasing these beauties and knew that I had to give one a try for myself. I learned three important things in this process…


(1) I am terrible at icing teeny tiny donuts. Even worse, these are meant for children. I almost have a Master’s degree and I cannot successfully assemble a children’s candy kit.

(2) These donuts are more for the fun of making them than the joy of eating them. Just so you don’t get your hopes up. They taste okay—just like your basic kid’s candy.

(3) That being said, this was super, super fun!

If you’d like to see how I put together my admittedly less-than-stellar donuts, be sure to watch the video below!

Grilled Mushroom Sliders Revisited / Sliders de Champiñones a la Parrilla


*Since I recently made a YouTube video showcasing this yummy recipe, I'm reposting it here on the blog as well so we all can rediscover some deliciously easy grilling.

I’m sure you’re familiar with the term “glamping,” in which one goes camping, but usually from the comfort of a hotel room with fluffy robes and round-the-clock meal deliveries. To some (read: me) that’s basically the only kind of camping that should exist. These burgers are basically the grilling version of glamping. You get to be super healthy and use baby portobello mushrooms instead of ground beef patties and cook them on a grill pan from the air-conditioned comfort of your own home, with nary a fly or UV ray coming anywhere near you.
