Fluffy Cake Doughnuts
I followed the directions given by Jmyslm, the pastry chef, except that I didn't omit the cinnamon. I used Penzey's Ceylon cinnamon, which is VERY mild... "I like to add 2T. melted butter instead of shortening, omit the cinnamon in the batter, use buttermilk instead of milk and bake them at 400' for 8 to 9 minutes. Once finished, a quick dunk in melted butter and a roll in white sugar, granulated brown sugar and cinnamon (combined of course) makes a donut my customers crave." I've tried lots of recipes for baked donuts, never finding one I considered to be worth the effort. This one is fantastic, although still not like a fried donut.

Asparagus Parmesan
With adaptations I make this almost every week now. Here are my changes... First, I make it either in the oven or on the grill (in a slotted grill pan). I lightly coat the asparagus with oil and lemon juice. You don't taste the lemon but it brings out the flavor. I sprinkle liberally with Kosher salt and freshly (coarse) ground pepper. You can use almost any oven temperature but it takes about 10-15 minutes at around 350 degrees. When it's almost done I sprinkle with freshly ground Parmesan cheese.

Herman Coffee Cake
I have been making this coffee cake for probably 30 years and still love it. Because it's so sweet I use just powdered sugar mixed with milk for the glaze. It gives it a great appearance without adding a whole lot more fat/sugar and still allows the topping to remain crispy. Our favorite variations include 3 cups of cut up apples along with the nuts and raisins or a large can of cut up peaches and the nuts. I also use a little more cinnamon - 2 t. For best flavor it is best to make the coffee cake a day ahead. The flavor becomes more intense as the days pass. The secret to success with the Herman starter is to keep it at room temperature and to avoid using metal spoons or bowls.
