I have some exciting news to share! After a lot of soul searching and self reflection, I have decided to enrol in the Professional Culinary Nutrition Expert Program at the Academy of Culinary Nutrition. The program is a distance education program developed by the incredibly inspiring Meghan Telpner – author of Undiet and The Undiet Cookbook. The curriculum focuses on honing your skills in the kitchen in addition to learning about how food can maintain good health and help people thrive. I really do think the program is the perfect fit for me, as it marries two of my passions – cooking & nutrition. I cannot wait to begin classes in September!!!
And now for something a bit indulgent to celebrate! Baked Lemon Raspberry Donuts!!!
These donuts are so pretty in pink! I made these lovely pink donuts on the weekend just before I heard the new royal baby was a girl. Coincidence!? I think not! *hehe* So, in honour of the birth of the new royal, I shall dedicate these donuts to Princess Charlotte. Such an adorable name, don’t you think? The base of the donut is a tart lemon cake studded with fresh lemon zest and is glazed with a bright raspberry glaze that balances tangy with sweet. They are fresh and bright – perfect for spring! And perfection for the celebration of a new little princess!
