Free Donuts at Krispy Kreme

Krispy Kreme donuts are almost too sweet for me to eat more than one at a time, but when that one donut is still hot from the fryer and freshly glazed, it is simply delicious.

Trans fats and local, familiy bakeries

“Banning trans fat would ‘annihilate the legacy of every family bakery,’” or so says a baker from Philadelphia, PA, in response to a local city council bill that would prohibit the use of trans fats in commercial kitchens.
