Life by Chocolate

Chocolate, white, milk, dark, in all its forms forms life. Chocolate truffles, caramels, and other confections are at the core of enjoyment. This is life by chocolate because death by chocolate is the wrong attitude.

A plain stick? Since when?

Since when has a nice French cruller become a plain stick? I ask you? Is nothing sacred? I had to go to Dunkin' Donuts while I was in Maine and I longed for a French cruller but all they had were plain sticks. Now, crullers are fluted, ring-shaped doughnuts made form pate choux and is usually in a ring but I grew up with the oblong version, so for me a cruller is always stick like.

However, it just doesn't taste the same, plain or glazed, when you call it a stick. I don't think that Dunkin' Donuts used pate choux but rather donut dough. Anyway, I wasn't not as happy with my coffee or my stick as I was with my cruller.
