Last night I had this sudden urge to make donuts! So I did this afternoon using the recipe taken from 17andBaking.

Pancake Day is so 24 hours ago. In case you forgot, February is National Snack Food Month — and today also happens to be National Tortilla Chip Day. Considering how often PartySugar and I eat nachos, we pretty much celebrate every day as Tortilla Chip Day, but I thought I should pay the pantry staple special respect by discovering little-known historical facts.
