Last night was a successful night in the Red Velvet Dreams kitchen. Having almost no food in our apartment, Jeremy and I have been forced to get a bit creative. And we had a couple pounds of potatoes left over from Christmas, so I decided to try cheesy scalloped potatoes in the crock pot.
They turned out alright, but nothing amazing. Jeremy added Frank’s Red Hot sauce and minced garlic to his, which he said made it a lot better.
Afterwards, I got bored again and found a recipe for donuts using Bisquick. Having some left over from making pancakes, I leapt at the chance to make more sweets. The recipe was really simple, and the donut holes turned out nicely, though a bit crisp.
Notes for next time: make the balls of dough smaller because they expand more than you think; take them out of the fryer sooner to make the outsides less crisp.
