Donuts and Pastries

Since I'm depriving myself of my favorite things in the world at this time, I thought it would be an appropriate post since I can at least look at them and drool. I truly have not eaten any sweets in about 5-6 weeks now. I'm not really feeling a strong desire as the diet is first and foremost on my mind. 

My favorite things are pastries in the sweets department. I absolutely love coconut cream pie, apple pie, chocolate silk pie, chocolate covered donuts, cinnamon-sugar donuts, coconut donuts, cinnamon buns, pecan buns and glazed donuts. I could live on them, actually. But I'm being noble and good at the moment. I'll see tomorrow how much weight I've lost so far.

When I was pregnant with my daughter many years ago, we lived in Oceanside, California, in a small motel studio apartment for a month. I sat there watching television and walking to the local Von's store for donuts. I'd get a coconut, chocolate, and a cinnamon donut and walk back to the motel and eat them all. Next day, same thing. I was so bored until we finally got our USMC base housing but I've always loved those 3 donuts above all else. The love is still there but I don't indulge very often anymore at my age. ;-) Enjoy the visuals, girls!


Double yummmmm....

These look yummy also.

I think coconut ones are my favorite.

I've had cinnamon rolls made by a woman that were so sweet and gooey they actually gave me terrible heartburn and had to stop eating her rolls.

Apple and cherry pastries are high on my list.

The best glazed donuts I've ever eaten at Krispy Kreme, but only the glazed. The others are horrid by my standards and I won't buy them, just the glazed.


Another yummmm....

I could also go for these in a big way.

And these little cookie bites.

I saw this on Google and thought how moist it looked, kind of caramel looking but I'd sure love to taste it.

The donut shop that did this one sure knows how to top chocolate on it!

These cinnamon rolls look great also

And these little mini-pastries look like they'd be wonderful.


  1. Oh could you post all those hunger making photos!!

  2. Oh. My. Goodness. I gained 10 lbs. just looking and drooling over these pastries. Hubby had his physical yesterday and is borderline diabetic so I think our diet needs to change too although we don't eat many sweets anyway.

  3. Dear Connie!I love all sweets,caramel,chocolate...Jestem okropnym łakomczuchem,a Ty pokazujesz takie smakowite zdjęcia!Ćwiczę mój angielski,postaram się pisać dużo i pięknie bo twój blog jest piękny!Całuję mocno:)Renata

  4. I love donuts and all sweets, unfortunately. But I'm really trying to cut them out.

    I have to say it's especially hard when I'm in this apartment far away from home and I don't have all my chores and family to occupy my thoughts and time!



Comments are so nice and I thank all of you that leave one for me.
