Dinner last night was an Omaha Steak I cooked in the Air Fryer ( with a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkling of garlic salt, 15 minutes at 370º. The green beans are something new, from Schwans ( they come in a steamer bag, frozen, and you just put them in the microwave for a few minutes and VOILA ! Really good!!!!
I am loving everything I have gotten from Schwans, like I love Omaha Steaks. Their ham and cheese omelett cookes from being frozen for 2 minutes in the micro and they are GOOD!!!!

Spell It Doughnut Or Donut, Just Spell It Delicious

                     (Krispy Kreme glazed raspberry filled donut!!! OMG!)

Introduction: Doughnut History

A doughnut is a pastry, a small, fried ring of sweet, leavened dough. Doughnuts leavened with baking powder are more dense than the fluffier, yeast-leavened doughnuts.
There are many types of doughnuts. Just a few examples include bismarks or jelly doughnuts, raised doughnuts leavened with yeast, squares and twists, crullers made from twisted cake-doughnut dough and French doughnuts made with cream-puff pastry dough. Doughnuts can be filled or unfilled, plain, glazed or iced.
Originally a Dutch recipe without a hole, the dough is dropped into hot oil, and was originally called an olykoek, or oily cake. The first written reference to “doughnut” is in Washington Irving’s 1809 in History of New York, where he writes of “balls of sweetened dough, fried in hog’s fat, and called doughnuts, or olykoeks.” The first known printed record of the shortened “donut” appears in “Peck’s Bad Boy And His Pa,” a story by George W. Peck published in 1900.

As the story goes, in 1847, 16-year-old American Hanson Gregory created the hole in the center of the doughnut. He used the top of a round tin pepper container to punch the holes, so the dough would cook evenly.
And the rest is history
