Yes, everybody knock on wood REALLY loudly--no backsliding allowed on this!

Knocking on wood for you here.

I found some of those donuts (though our Whole Foods does not appear to carry them). Scooter does not like the cinnamon-sugar topping, so we'll be trying the vanilla or chocolate glazed. On the other hand, Trillian loves them and she has complained about every baked gluten-free item we've had in the house.

I love the cinnamon/sugar ones, too--and T. loved the maple glazed ones (they are sweeter). Some extra sweetness might be more to Scooter's taste--L. tends to prefer things dry and low on flavor!!

Go ahead and celebrate those small victories! Even if it is with a nervous heart. :-)
