It all started when I was 5 years old. Every weekend my brother and I would stay with my grandparents. My Opa would get up at 6am and bring home a dozen doughnuts from our tiny local bakery. Long john's, apple fritters, jelly-filled... I looked forward to those sweet treats all week!

As I got older, and moved to SC, I would very infrequently indulge in such a treat. But every once in a while, I would get a craving. I found that, more than anything, they just made my belly hurt. I thought about the ingredients that were added to preserve the freshness, add crazy colors and make it taste a certain way. So. I started researching how to make my own. And practicing. And practicing. I didn't have any other intention than to make MYSELF a yummy, mildly healthy, fake-free doughnut that would taste as good as the others, but I wouldn't dread the after shock. Then, or course, my friends started getting curious. And the taste testing began. I brought my test batches to birthday parties, yoga class, holiday events and BBQs. This is when the vegan recipes started creeping in. I had 2 favorite friends who were vegan and I hated that they were left out, plus most of my yoga class was vegan. So, I started almost all over again. Testing out egg and dairy substitutes until I realized at one event... the bowl of vegan doughnuts was empty first. Sacré Bleu!

Fast forward to October 2010 when I found a beautiful blue diesel 88 Cheverolet. I invested 6 months of blood, sweat and tears (lots of tears), made mistakes, made miracles, gained a food truck family and here I am!

I love how different every day is, going to new places, seeing new faces and I especially love feeding those with egg and dairy allergies. I got an email a few months ago from a customer that was ecstatic to announce that they brought their 82 year old grandmother to one of our events and since she was allergic to eggs, had not had a doughnut in her entire life, until now.

Thanks to my MOM, my friends and all the doughnut fans out there. Wouldn't be here without you!
