This is maybe or maybe not why I'm 2# up in the weigh in today

Okay, I am trying. Really, I am.

Kind of.

But, right below the e-mail from Jillian (Biggest Loser Trainer) was an e-mail from Paula Deen.

That led me to the Deen Brothers Cookbook, in which they have a recipe that says when they need a quick donut fix, they just take the cans of refrigerated biscuits, use a small round cutter to cut a hole in the middle, and fry them up.

And I had just such a can of biscuits in the fridge.

They were lowfat.

I think I successfully remedied that little situation.

By soaking them in approximately 1-1/2" of grease at 365*, 3 minutes each side.

Then sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar.

And, in case you are wondering, 1-1/2 cups powdered sugar, 1/4 cup butter, and 3-4T of maple syrup makes a mighty fine maple frosting for those deep-fried rings of love.

I need professional help.

Thanks, Paula and Sons. These were heavenly . . .

"deep-fried rings of love" is right! Those look great. Here's to two good tasting pounds.
