We love donuts around my house. If you have visited our site before you will see we have a few favorite baked donut recipes already up that are really delicious. The best part about a donut is, they are portable. Grab and go. The other really great part about our donuts are, they are baked instead of fried. So, they have much less fat and calories. But, still lots of great flavors. These cinnamon donuts are my husbands favorites. I like baking small batches because like fried donuts, they are best eaten the day they are made. Bake, grab and take a big bite!

Weeknights can be hectic around many households. Sometimes we just need convenient foods but, we still want to feed our family healthy meals without spending too much time in the kitchen with all the other things that have to be done like homework and shuffling the kids here and there.

This is a great dish because you can swap out the meatballs for turkey meatballs and change around the sauce and veggies too. See how quick and easy this is to throw together. Tastes really good too.
