Growing up I have known my parents to do mostly ONE job, and that was work at a donut shop.

I remember when I was about 6 or 7 years old my dad would take me to work during his afternoon shifts right after school and I would sit right by the frosting trays and the minute my dad wasn’t looking I’d dip my finger and lick it off with super flash speed. Probably violated a few health codes there. It’s ok that was back when no one cared and everyone laughed and enjoyed life. 😜

After many years of hard work my family was able to get a shop of their own and I could not be more proud. They have been the best example of what hard work means and that when you work hard you play hard. ;P Meaning they always had what they needed and I never saw them have to depend on anyone.

Because my family trade is making donuts, you bet your sweet little cronuts that pretty much every man in my family has or is a donut baker (or fryer cause donuts are fried. You’d be surprised how many people don’t know that). All of my uncles, my husband and his brother, some of my cousins all know how to make donuts.

With that said, its come to the conclusion that any man who is thinking about marrying one of my sisters will have to go through a right of passage and learn how to make donuts. 😉

Since donuts have been a big part of my life, along with other goodies like muffins and bagels, Now that I moved out of state I realized how much I had taken them for granted. I had them at arms reach for the past 27+ years and now I have to settle for whatever is close by and PAY FOR IT  and it is driving me a little crazy. I know it may sound a bit arrogant but when you’ve had access to something your whole life, for free, its kind of hard to go and buy that thing elsewhere and not as good. Also its a little hard not to compare and criticize the donuts from other places. I know it sounds like Im a little pretentious when it comes to donuts, but its kinda true. =P

Is that bad? I think I need to reevaluate and take my donut ego down a notch.😅

Ive been in Utah almost a month and have not seen or heard of any good donut places. Theres plenty of bakeries that sell donuts, but its not the same if its not exclusive to selling donuts. Most of the people who find out my family is in the donut business tell me I should open one out here in Provo. Im not so sure I want to get on that boat again, but if I feel inspired to do so, who knows we might come up with our very own franchise and rule the donut world. 😉

Anywho if anyone needs help picking out the best donuts or what the people at your office will appreciate more, you know who to ask! =)
