Can you handle the "hole" truth?
The sugar-craving crowd at the Weekender get heart palpitations the first Friday in June.
Why? Because this happens to be the day in which we celebrate our first-thing-in-the-morning mainstay: the good, old-fashioned doughnut.
But, first, here's a li'l history lesson on this perky pastry of deep-fried perfection.
Even though the doughnut had been around since, at least, the mid-19th century, it's popularity spiked when women provided the mobile treat to homesick U.S. soldiers on the frontlines in France during World War II.
The women, who were actually Salvation Army workers nicknamed "doughnut dollies," used material that they had on hand, like wine bottles as rolling pins or soldiers' helmets as frying pans.
