Doughnut Glazes Flavored Glazes Doughnut Glaze recipes

We’re celebrating the first week of spring with our Sweet Potato Spudnuts, although this time we’ve glazed them each with a variety of flavors. Springtime just screams fresh, bright and beautiful and since we’re big doughnut lovers over here, it all just works. The ratio I’ve used for the glazes are about 1/2 cup fruit puree to 2 – 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar OR 3 1/2 tablespoons whole milk to 2 – 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar. I like a glaze with some body to it, but I don’t like it to be thick like frosting. When it comes to doughnuts, it’s also nice to have a little bit of fun with the toppings. I like to use fresh/freeze-dried fruits and herbs for color, texture and flavor, but the options are endless, really…the black sesame seeds are also fun to use and look quite beautiful and dramatic.

Today we’ve topped our doughnuts with these glaze flavors: vanilla bean, blackberry, raspberry, and matcha, but you can really go crazy and play around with your favorite flavors. Enjoy! xx, Jenny

smoked_trout_toast_recipe appetizer_recipe smoked_trout_appetizer_process smoked_trout_appetizer smoked_trout_toast Today we have a really perfect little entertaining recipe that we have paired with Dark Horse Wine to bring you. We love spring (which officially begins today!) because of everything yummy that is coming into season, super fresh and healthy. I feel like naturally our bodies just want to start to eat healthier and the loaded cream based soups we were living on over the winter have been over indulged and just don’t sound as appetizing. What I really crave when the seasons change are huge salads, seafood, light grains, and Sauvignon Blanc (spring is basically the season of Sauvignon Blanc!). So we are excited to bring you this Smoked Trout on Toast recipe paired with Dark Horse Wine’s new Sauvignon Blanc. With its crisp acidity and citrus flavors, Dark Horse Sauvignon Blanc is a perfect pairing with our Smoked Trout on Toast recipe. Light and refreshing, much like the wine, this recipe won’t bog you down and can also be served over cucumbers for something even lighter if you wanted. This pairing is just so perfect for entertaining, and easy to whip up, and best of all, easy to prepare ahead! Not only do we love the light and crisp flavor of Dark Horse Sauvignon Blanc, but the affordability (under $10 a bottle!) is like icing on the cake! Enjoy!!

Smoked Trout On Toast
Makes 1 1/3 cups

Ingredients:
8 ounces, boneless/skinless smoked trout, roughly flaked
3 ounces mascarpone, softened
1/2 cup sweet corn kernels
3 tablespoons finely diced shallots
1 1/2 tablespoons lemon zest
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon minced tarragon
2 teaspoons thinly sliced chives
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cracked black pepper

crostini
micro greens

Directions:
1. Place all ingredients, (except crostini and microgreens) into a mixing bowl and mix together with a fork, flaking the fish as much as you can, but not overworking the mixture. Adjust seasonings.
2. Top each crostini with a couple tablespoons of the trout mixture and top with micro greens and more lemon zest, if desired.
