{from the archives} baked doughnuts, pear cake, pumpkin soup, & more

Happy, Happy Wednesday, all!

I realize that today’s update is a bit of a cheat – I have a quite a few *new* recipes & photographs to share with you in the coming months, worry not -, but I thought I would post a few goodies from the Lace & Lilacs archives today.

As those of you who follow along on social media are aware, I spent last week baking up a number of yummy desserts in my itty bitty kitchen. I was, therefore, unable to blog… so, I shared the following recipes (once again) on Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook, & Twitter.

If you happened to miss these sweet treats… here’s a little roundup for you! Enjoy.
