July 18, 2012 By Leanne Vogel March 29, 2017It’s Kevin’s (30th!) birthday tomorrow and while store-bought presents are nice, I wanted to come up with a special treat for him instead. To help inspire me in the kitchen and keep me on track; because I usually get distracted when I’m creating a recipe and end up with something completely different than what I’d planned, I asked Kevin to write down a list of his favorite foods he wanted me to incorporate into his birthday dessert. Here’s his list… Wait, is meat listed twice? I swear I told him to write down sweet things. There’s no way I’m making a meat dessert. You’re on your own with that one, babe. I seem to be doing a lot of raspberry things lately, so I decided to play on Kevin’s love for lemonade and turn it into a doughnut. Kevin is to doughnuts as a dog is to a bone. His eyes widen, his smile curls… I’m just surprised he hasn’t buried them by the dozen somewhere in his office for safe keeping. So naturally, doughnuts felt like a good fit. A couple minutes prepping the ingredients, half an hour in the kitchen, and voila! A healthy (meat-free) birthday dessert.
