National Donut Day!

 Sidecar's huckleberry donut is always a hit! 

Okay, so we haven't blogged in a hot minute. Sorry! Life's been crazy hectic with traveling, work, some side food projects (stay tuned!) and a mountain of other events. Sometimes, you've gotta shut your laptop and focus on what's happening in real time. But, we're back and what better time to chime in than on National Donut Day?! While we still think it's the second or third time it's happened this year, we're happy to celebrate because it's 2016 and Cali's donut game is stronger than ever. 

We've shoved so many fried rings in our faces this year and of course, some were better than others, but all were creative enough to document. Our forever donut is Sidecar's butter + salt cake donut. 

 Our #1 is sweet, salty and melts in your mouth.

 This raised donut is light and refreshing. The pistachios add great texture and balance.

Once today is over, the new Donut Year will begin and it will be tough topping this past year's finds. It's a hard job to dig for donuts, but somebody's gotta do it. 

 The possibilities are really endless.
