Baked Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Donuts

I have some wonderful news to share with you… Do you remember my Be an Overcomer post a few weeks ago?  I dedicated it to my sweet father who’s been battling cancer but, we got some wonderful news yesterday!!  His docs have declared him in remission.  I am beyond grateful and just thought I’d share the good news 🙂

One other cool thing… that Blackberry Barista Balsamic Marscapone Tartlette and I are off to Seattle next week!   I was so happy to receive the news and I can hardly wait…  a total Foodie Mecca for me- Attending IFBC,  having extra with the Girard Chefs, and of course all kinds of amazing food!  YAY 🙂
