Every year we try to come out with different ways to add more nutrients and fiber to our diets, and let me tell you is difficult to keep the promises and sometimes I just give up.

Orange Glace Donuts #FoodieExtravaganza

Orange Glace Donuts #FoodieExtravaganza

Ok, let me start by saying that I love donuts! Thank you, I needed that, I’m so happy to participate this month in the donut event for #FoodieExtravaganza and I’m sure you are too.

This is a great theme to have especially this month for me living in Southen California, the weather has been wonderful not too hot and perfect for baking, wich makes me so happy because I love to bake during the summer time. I know most of the donuts are fried but some people love to bake them and let me tell you those donuts are pretty delicious too.

Now let me talk about my donuts, I know that the title said orange glace, but, I decide also  to present them in a different way and add the orange zest to the dough, this addition will make the donuts tastier and with a delicious citrus flavor. I’m sure you will love the flavor and this is a great opportunity to have some fun in the kitchen with your kids and let them decorate and cover the donuts and those little fingers in gooey goodies.

July has arrived and that means it’s time for another #FoodieExtravaganza! Each month we take turns hosting and selecting a foodie holiday associated with that month. Somehow in all the planning July was overlooked so in a mad dash in the second half of June, Lauren of From Gate to Plate told us to celebrate the doughnut. If anyone is keeping score, National Doughnut Day is actually the first Friday in June, but none of us are complaining to be celebrating one of America’s favorite breakfast treats today. July is National Culinary Arts month so let’s just go with that. Also in July: Fried Chicken Day (today, the 6th), Blueberry Muffin Day (the 11th), and Junk Food Day (the 21st).

Classic Coffee Cake #FoodieExtravaganza

classic coffee cake #foodieextravaganza

This is my first time in months that I’m been able to post in this amazing party, and what a better way to do it than making a delicious coffee cake. This month we are celebrating coffee cake, and you know we have to have it at least once a week or maybe once a day.

I love coffee cakes and I made a different combination and different flavors but nothing beat the classic, and for me the simple the better. This coffee cake is just a mouth full of deliciousness in one bite and is super easy to make.

Many people think that coffee cake is a cake with a coffee base and it is really funny that my daughter want it a piece and ask me “does this cake has coffee? Well not it doesn’t and I think that it is name like that because it is usually eating with coffee and you know it was a great way to make people come and enjoy a cup of coffee with a delicious cake.

I want to say thank you to Lauren Mitchell from From Gate to Plate for bringing us a great party theme.

What is your favorite coffee cake? Tell I want to know…

It’s Foodie Extravaganza Day and this month’s theme is Coffee Cake with Caroline from Caroline’s Cooking is hosting What is Foodie Extravaganza? It’s when a group of bloggers get together and make a recipe using one main ingredient. Where do we get the ingredient? We look at The Nibble and pick something off of their list. Croissants are actually celebrated on January 30th, but it’s in January, so it’s fair game. You can check out our group Pinterest board for past recipes. If you’re a blogger, you can join along with us by requesting to join on our Facebook page. Now, on to the goodness being shared this month:
