    Being from the Northeast, where good old-fashioned donut shops are the norm, I won't go near a Krispy Kreme when we're traveling. IMHO, they're just not good eating. But I know plenty of people who loooove them so I guess it takes all kinds.

    Dunkin Donuts doesn't thrill me either. I like the mom and pop shops where you get hefty yummy coffee rolls or fritters or fried cakes. THAT's a donut! lol

    Now, DD coffee...that's wonderful!

    MRD - I'm experimenting a bit in my crockpot today. I will let you know how it turns out. I had purchased some pork chops that were really lean and on sale - I don't normally eat pork chops, so I needed to get creative. I put them in the crockpot with some Au Jus mix and water to let simmer all day. I'm kinda hoping that the meat will end up tender enough to kind of shred for sandwiches. We shall see. If it works, it sure would be a cheaper way to do it that with pork tenderloin!


    Every time we are in Vegas - we go over to the Excalibur because they have a Krispy Kreme in the food court and they always have hot, fresh donuts! I only like their original glazed donuts, though. For some reason, their other donuts just don't impress me.

    Lucy I remember that recipe! I looked for weeks for "masa harina" and I don't know what that would be in Canada. Is it cornmeal (gritty) or corn flour?

    I too am not a donut person - I worked in Dunkin' as a kid and got soured on them.

    It's a flour, and I think the name of it would be the same in Canada. HowStuffWorks "What is Masa Harina?"

    This is the brand I got:


    Did you look in the "ethnic" food aisles? That's where it is in my local supermarket, instead of with the flour and sugar.

    Yeah, I did. I bet I have to go to Whole Foods (Whole Paycheck) We don't have the selection you guys do. Any Canadians know?

    Maybe in downtown Toronto but not out in the burbs. We have Mexican aisles in the food store that consist of taco mixes, burritos, salsa , black beans, canned chilies and that's about it. Well, now I'm just going to have to google and see if there actually is any. Hubby and I made Thai green and red curry from scratch and finding the Thai bird chilies was not very easy. We had to go on an epic hunt.

    Canuck, I'm lucky here -- even if I couldn't find it in the ethnic aisle, there's a tiny Latin market just around the corner, and we also have one (that I know of) Asian market that has had every strange ingredient for Thai food that I've sought, including the chilies. And, luckily, a lot of items there have labels in English.

    Holy crap, marybeth! I'm glad there's not one of those stores around here!

    It's bad enough that we have Rick's Dessert Diner. That's where my slice of "birthday pie" came from this year. Plus, we took a giant slice of red velvet cake to go I can't go there too often because a) I'd gain a 100 pounds and b) it's too hard to pick just one thing! Just browsing through their menu of 285 different desserts is making me hungry!
