Giant hand or mini doughnut? Happy National Doughnut Day

I could not think of a better day to return to this wonderfully neglected blog dedicated to my undying love of doughnuts than National Doughnut Day. Free doughnuts! What a time to be alive… am I right? I’ve returned to New York City for good and I am ready to take on doughnut-hole new world of doughnuts. 

  
Today I visited a place I knew would not let me down, Doughnut Plant NYC. I returned for my all time favorite, the Tres Leches doughnut. I sit in Seward Park on the Lower East Side wishing it was 10 minutes ago so I could eat it again. 

Pictured above is Doughnut Plant’s way of celebrating this momentus day, a free carnival sprinkles mini cake doughnut… And good things come in small packages.

  
Here is a cliché Instagram-esque photo of my Tres Leches. If you have yet to visit Doughnut Plant or if you have and haven’t tried the Tres Leches, I suggest taking a trip down there and getting one…dozen.

Hello and Doughnuts

Why am I writing about doughnuts?   Why not?   I have loved doughnuts since I was a child. I remember visiting my aunt in The Bronx and somehow knowing that there was a Krispy Kreme Doughnuts close by and would beg and beg until she finally took me to get a Krispy Kreme doughnut. I could have eaten at least 6 of them in one sitting, but she only let me get one.

Now, I am 22 years old and can get a doughnut anytime I damn near please. But really, I love doughnuts… I like a lot of other things that aren’t very healthy for me either, but doughnuts take the cake.

I don’t know why I spell doughnuts the European way, just something that I have always done.

I’ll be posting about specialty doughnuts, doughnut shops and anything else that has to do with doughnuts really. Hope you enjoy the reads.. Feel free to leave some feedback!
