Salted Caramel Baked Banana Nut Donuts

Gosh, I had such an amazing weekend. Like the best weekend ever. You know when you just have such a great time with someone that you have a permanant smile on your face and your face acutally hurts? Best feeling ever. That was my weekend. Such good energy with good people, good friends, good family, and good food. We told stories and talked for hours. I want more of those weekends. A lot more. That's what life is supposed to be about. Good stuff.
