    I’m thankful for the location of our house, long phone conversations about nothing with my sister, doughnut muffins, and music that touches my heart or makes me want to dance.

    I got the donut muffin recipe out of a cookbook I received for Christmas a couple years ago. The batter is similar to what you would use to make donuts (I think?), but you bake it in muffin papers and a muffin pan just like muffins!
