Ah donuts, what a topic. As you probably know by now, Britta and I are big fans of donuts.

So of course, while we were in NYC, we had to stop at Doughnut Plant to do a Sweet Eats. I first visited Doughnut Plant two years ago on my last trip to NYC. I had heard…

Sweet Eats: The Pie Hole

If you remember a few month’s back The Pie Hole sent us their Apple pie to try for National Apple Pie Day. It was without a doubt the best apple pie we’ve ever had! So we were thrilled when we found out The Pie Hole was opening a location in Hollywood, about a mile from our place! The first free Saturday we had we headed to The Pie Hole Hollywood to try the rest of the delicious pies they offer.…
