Cherry Chip Donuts

Cherry Chip Donut


Since I’m a food blogger, I thought I’d share some foodie facts about me:

1.  My favorite cuisine is Greek.  I guess since my parents were born and raised in Greece, that better be my favorite!  I don’t have a least favorite.

2. My favorite food that I rarely get to eat is sushi.  My least favorite food that I make sure I never eat is liver and onions.

3. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE spicy food.  I’m not big on sweet and sour food.

4. My favorite dessert is Opera Cream Cake from a local bakery.  My least favorite is cheesecake.

5. If I were single I’d eat popcorn for dinner every night.

6. My favorite thing to bake are cupcakes.  My least favorite are layered cakes.

7. My favorite fruit is watermelon.  My least favorite is grapefruit.

8. My favorite vegetable is asparagus.  My least favorite are beets.

9. My favorite food memory is eating a Frisch’s hot fudge cake after giving birth to my oldest child.  My worst food memory is devouring an entire box of Twinkies as a kid and then throwing it all up.

10. As a kid, I loved my mom’s apple pie.  As a kid I hated my mom’s stuffed peppers.

11. I love the smell of freshly baked bread.  I hate the smell of cooked cabbage.

12. My favorite kitchen gadget is my KitchenAid Stand Mixer.  My least favorite gadget is a cheese grater!

13. My favorite ingredient to bake with is butter.  My least favorite are nuts.

14. My favorite breakfast food are donuts (see recipe below).  My least favorite is anything with bran.

15. My favorite thing about blogging is being a part of this blogging community.  I’m humbled daily by all the talent I see around me.  These folks are incredible!   They are a supportive and giving community.  I am also honored  and blessed that readers take the time to explore my blog, read my posts, and try my recipes.    I get absolutely giddy when I am able to talk to you!  I can’t get enough!   I am thrilled I have the opportunity to share recipes with not only my family and friends, but with all the lovely readers out there who love food as much as I do!  What I like least about blogging is the feeling that there are so many recipes and not enough time to try them all!

Now, your turn.  What food facts can you share with me?

    I soooooooooo agree with your last sentenc .”…t.he feeling that there are so many recipes and not enough time to try them all!

    Your donuts are making me hungry!
    I don’t eat breakfast but I’d eat these donuts any time :)

    • Thanks Winnie! I had fun writing it! I don’t eat breakfast either, just drink coffee! My son actually ate about 11 of these!

  2. These look so great! I never made my own donuts because i can not find a donut pan over here. You can’t find them anywhere over here :( i’m gonna try to find one on ebay!

    Love from the Netherlands!

    • Rosie, I wish I could send you a donut pan. They are so fun. I bet you could use a mini muffin tin! Thanks Rosie!

  3. Fun reading all those!! Thanks for sharing!

  4. What a great post! To begin, I started smiling as soon as I read the title in my inbox. I thought it read “Cherry DIP Donuts”. Then I got here, saw the pic, and still didn’t realize the “DIP” was a “CHIP”. It wan’t until after I read your revelations :) and took a look at the recipe title that I realized that I have the reading abilities of a 6 year-old. See? Now you know something about me.
    Thanks, Tanya, for a great recipe and fun post — even if do you prefer Greek cuisine over Italian. 😉

    • Ha ha, John that is funny!! Maybe I should make cherry dip donuts!! Greek, Italian, ah, same thing wink wink!

  5. Thanks for sharing a little bit about yourself. It’s always nice to get to know the person behind the blog. Your recipe sounds perfect for my donut pans that I got for Christmas. :)

    • I hope you try these in your pan! Thanks taking the time to read about me.

  9. Just saw your recipe on Jam Hands link up and it’s so seldom I see anything with Cherry Chips (one of my favorites) I pinned it right away! I have to order mine online but I don’t mind because they taste so darn good and I know these donuts will too!

    • I can’t actually find cherry chips, so, this is a bit deceiving. However, if you actually used cherry chips in these donuts. these would be amazing!!! I’m going to get on line and order myself some now! Thank you!

  10. I’m going to try these in our never used donut maker. Hope they work. We’re having a snow day here, so it will be a breakfast treat for the kids. Found you at Tidy Mom.
