Bacon Maple Donuts Made by a Real Mom...not Martha Stewart.

Most people have a love/hate relationship with Pinterest. I mean we LOVE the great ideas and the thoughts of actually doing some of the projects we find. But we HATE when we spend the time and money and it just doesn't turn out the same. 

Or even close.

Pinterest and Martha Stewart just aren't a doable reality for the majority of us. (Which is probably a large part of the reason Martha is so stinking rich and we are not.)

I used to try to make my blog pictures look all artsy and fancy. I took photos with my fancy pants DSLR camera. I made sure my kitchen appeared clean and tidy. But really, who has a clean kitchen while they are cooking?

This time, I used my cell phone to take pics and left everything as normal. Why? BECAUSE I'M A REAL MOM!!

So if you're here looking for one of those June Cleaver meets the Queen of England proper posts, I suggest you move along.

But if you're here to find out how to make super easy, super yummy MAPLE GLAZED BACON DONUTS *cue angels singing* you are in the right place!

Gather these ingredients:

1 package of bacon
1 1/4 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 can refrigerated buttermilk buscuits
vegetable oil

First, fry your bacon up nice and crisp.


Who still fries bacon?


Thanks to my friend "Mrs. Bulldog" I no longer deal with that messy bacon grease splattering everywhere. I just bake it in the oven!

I baked it at 400º for about 25 minutes or so. (I used thick cut bacon.) It came out like this.


Just chop it up and set it aside.

Next, whisk together:

1 1/4 cup of powdered sugar
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla

Set aside.

Take buttermilk refrigerated biscuits and separate them. Cut holes in the middle. I dumped out a bottle of expired medicine and used it for the hole puncher. (Don't worry. I washed it out first.)

Wah lah! Perfect little holes. (Is that how you spell "wah lah?" My spell check is not being helpful.)

Heat oil to 350º. Drop biscuits in and fry until golden brown and then flip and brown the other side.

Or you can do what I did and fry them until they are dark golden brown because you didn't realize they would cook so fast.

(The other side is naturally, that's the side I chose to glaze. Shhhhhh! No one will ever know!)

Spread glaze on one side of the donut and sprinkle with bacon pieces.

Serve on fancy china.

You may need a ShamWow® to absorb all the wet kisses you get when you making these for your kids.
Lastly, be sure to sneak one (or three) off to the side for yourself!

Special thanks to my friend Kathy who gave me this recipe. She actually is one of those super duper moms that makes the rest of us look bad...but she's so sweet we love her anyway. It doesn't hurt that she shares her yummy food. :)

Why American men should boycott American women

Boycott American Women

I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don't know how to cook or clean, don't want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

Tens of millions of American men have had their lives completely destroyed by American women through the following crimes:

1. False rape accusations (it has been proven that up to 80 percent of rape accusations are FALSE)

2. False domestic violence (DV) charges (same as above)

3. Financial destruction of men in divorce courts through alimony and support payments (women get up to 95 percent of their ex-husband's income and savings, as well as the house, car, etc)

4. Emotional destruction of men by ex-wives who have stolen their children from them and forbidden the fathers from having custody or contact with their own children

5. Divorced dads who commit suicide as a result

Not one single American woman has EVER condemned their fellow American women for committing these crimes against men. Silence means consent. Therefore, American women support and enjoy destroying men's lives and causing men to commit suicide. Apparently, American women think it is okay to be a criminal, just as long as you are a woman. Therefore, is it any surprise that a huge percent of American men no longer want anything to do with American women, other than using them for easy sex and then throwing them away?

A few more reasons to stay away from American women?

-25 percent of American women take psychiatric drugs for mental illnesses.
-25 percent of women under the age of 30 have at least one STD.
-85 percent of divorces in America are INITIATED by women, thus women are responsible for the vast majority of divorces.
-70 percent of criminals in America were raised by single mothers, thus feminism is responsible for most crime in America.
-The majority of child molestation, child abuse, and child murder in America is done by WOMEN.

Over 50 percent of American women are single, without a boyfriend or husband; so the fact is most American men no longer want to marry American women. Let these worthless American women grow old living alone with their 10 cats.
