The Great Minnesota Get Together" aka the State Fair. The first thing that comes to mind (that isn't on a stick!) are these Cinnamon Sugar Mini Donuts. These are a staple at any fair and carnival but what makes these a bit healthier, but just as tasty, are that these are baked and not fried. Yes I know fair food is all about the deep frying and eating all those foods you might wait yearly for and I do get that - really! It's some people's favorite time of the year. While we haven't been to the fair in a looooong time, I still like some of the food and that is where these mini donuts that I can make at home comes in. Lower calorie so I can eat more, right?

Sometimes you feel like a nut and sometimes you feel like you want a lot of them! Today's recipe of Rosemary Spiced Mixed Nuts is a super easy recipe to have on hand when you feel like noshing/snacking. We recently had some friends over for the DIY Guy's birthday and we enjoyed some simple appetizers including this recipe. While I don't have a garden any longer, I do keep some fresh herbs in pots on the deck and the fresh rosemary really kicks up the flavor for these mixed nuts (and the handful of pepitas it includes too).

If you love sprinkles, then today you will be in heaven since we are sharing these Mini Olympic Baked Donuts with colorful sprinkles (everything is more fun with them, right?) They are just in time for planning a fun treat while we cheer on Team USA! I'm getting pretty excited to see the opening ceremony and then watching some of my favorite sports. I can't decide what games I like better summer or winter as each has some great events. A couple of my favorites for now are beach volleyball and gymnastics. Go Team USA!
