The best thing from Michigan…

…besides Drew, obviously, is the wonder that is Hinkley’s Doughnuts. I tried to take a picture of the dozen doughnuts we brought back with us, I really did!

Unfortunately this is the best picture I got.

After having Christmas with my family, we drove up to Jackson (about a 5-hour drive) to do a Christmas with his family. His brother and sister-in-law came over in the morning and we opened presents (I got some great baking tools from his dad and some yummy-looking cookbooks [Joanne Chang’s Flour from his dad and The Back in the Day Bakery Cookbook from his brother and sister-in-law], so expect some of those recipes to appear here once we’ve finished a little holiday detox) and then his mom’s side of the family came over and we ate and ate and ate and ate! I think–who am I kidding? I KNOW–my favorite was the smoked salmon spread that Drew and his dad made, using salmon that his dad caught and then smoked himself! Oh, it was soooo good.

Now we’re back home and finishing off the holiday baking – in addition to the doughnuts, we got sent home with quite a few cookies which is not helping my waistline!

    • They actually got about 4-5 inches of snow while we were in Michigan, but by the time we left on the 27th (around 10:00), the freeways were clear – we hit a little flurry around Chicago, but nothing too bad. So, yep, we lucked out!
