So many good things about summer, but mostly peach season. Last Saturday morning, I took Danny to the Peach Stand— which is exactly what it sounds like, a stand that sells locally grown peaches and produce in the heart of Fort Mill (aka my hometown). It was so fun to show him a little piece of where I grew up. Hope your weekend is sweet and sunny!
I may or may not have eaten two peaches while typing this.

It’s not too hard to mess up doughnuts, but it is not easy to make a perfect doughnut. (Does that sound like bad advice printed in a fortune cookie? Maybe.) More or less, that’s my attitude regarding the breakfast confection. Lucky for everyone living or passing through Asheville, NC– all you have to do is drive (or bike) to HOLE doughnuts. It is one of those shops you’ll keep thinking of long after you’ve left it’s sunny picnic tables.
HOLE makes their doughnuts fresh to order meaning you get them hot. The doughnuts are light and a little crispy on the outside– similar to beignets (apparently? I’ve actually never had a beignet…) and though appearing relatively simple (less is more!), the flavors were balanced and exciting. Think toasted sesame seeds and spices. We ordered coffees and one of each doughnut (they only offer four flavors a day) and each one was great. Like really great. So yumz.
Where is your favorite doughnut shop? Asking for a friend.

p.p.s. How cute are Corey & Sav?
