October is doughnut season. Fresh, hot, soft and fluffy Homemade Yeast Doughnuts. I have a lot of self-control but these babies test it SEVERELY! Have you watched the movie The Hundred Foot Journey? If not drop everything and watch it immediately. I’m serious, immediately. Hassan’s favorite quote from his mother is “food is memories.” That perfectly sums up my relationship with these doughnuts.

In high school my cousin and I decided that we would throw a harvest party for Halloween since we didn’t normally do much to celebrate. We invited our families together with some other local families, dressed up, and ate freshly fried doughnuts and drank cider. It was amazing so we decided to make it a tradition. (There’s a picture from our Egyptian year on my About Me page!) In the years that followed we added themes, the costumes got fancier and the faces changed a little but the doughnuts and cider remained the same.
