Anything is good, in moderation. I cook because I love to and because I can share with those around me. I crochet for the same reason.

Do what you want to do, enjoy what you do and use it to touch those around you.

Potato Donuts

In honor of Pennsylvania Farm Show Week, here is a recipe for potato donuts

2 cups sugar
3 whole eggs
2 cups mashed potatoes
1 cup milk
5 tsp. baking powder
4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tbsp. melted butter

Combine all ingredients and roll out on a lightly floured surface. If needed, add flour if dough is too sticky or a little milk if too crumbly, until a rollable dough is obtained. Add as little flour as is possible to avoid having heavy, tough, doughnuts.

Cut out doughnut shapes using a doughnut cutter, dipping the cutter in flour before each cut.  Gently drop the doughnuts to hot oil (about 370°F). Turn once until browned on both sides and cooked through. If outside of doughnut browns before inside is cooked, reduce temperature.  Remove from oil using a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Dust with confectioners sugar while still warm.
