Donut Man

The famed strawberry doughnuts from The Donut Man have been on my to-do list for many years.

The small shop in Glendora, with an address on Route 66, has been around for forty years and is open 24 hours a day. People come from all over to try the famous strawberry donuts as well other donut creations. There is usually a line, but it moves pretty fast.

This weekend, I finally got to try it out.

Since we had come all this way, we had to try a few donuts.

Single Serving Cookies and Cream Cookie

I had so much fun making and eat my single serving birthday cake cookie that I immediately wanted to try making another one.

This time, I made a giant cookies and cream cookie. It took me a few tries, but I finally achieved the texture and flavor I was craving. The cookie is crisp and chewy, and chock full of chocolate cookie crumbles and cream.

Toscanini’s Ice Cream (World’s Best Ice Cream?)

During my trip last Fall to Boston, my brother took us to Toscanini’s Ice Cream, which makes quite a bold claim on their storefront window. They quote the New York Times as once proclaiming them “The World’s Best Ice Cream.”

Well with such a statement, we had to check it out.

The first thing I noticed were the prices. At $4.25 for a small single scoop, this was one of the most expensive ice cream shops I’ve been to.
