REVIEW: Revolution Doughnuts & Coffee (Decatur, GA)

We've been hearing great things about Revolution Doughnuts for quite some time and decided to give them a visit and see for ourselves what all the buzz was all about. Revolution Doughnuts officially opened its doors on National Doughnut Day, June 1, 2012. This donut joint, is a favorite local spot in Decatur to meet friends and eat all natural hand-forged doughnuts. The beauty about this place is that all their doughs, glazes & fillings are all natural, made from scratch, free of trans-fat, & made by people, not by machines. They use organic flour and high quality ingredients like Callebaut chocolate, fresh seasonal fruit, and pure vanilla. Revolution Doughnuts offer a variety of options for vegans and folks with sensitivities to gluten, eggs, or dairy.

Revolution Doughnut is a small family-owned start-up baking company, formerly operating under the name "Little Red Hen Bakeshop.” They started baking in their home kitchen - then in borrowed commercial spaces - selling treats at local area farm stand markets, where they built up a loyal customer base.  It has long been their dream to open a seven-day-a-week brick and mortar operation, a neighborhood cafe that combines hand-crafted treats and delicious locally roasted coffee.  Revolution Doughnuts was born out of this dream.

We ordered 3 yeast style doughnuts: Vanilla Bean, Dark Chocolate and Raspberry Sprinkle.  The doughnuts are more dense than you expect, yet they super scrumptious and oh so tasty! We also try two cake doughnuts: Salted Caramel and Toasted Almond. They have a velvety chewy exterior and a dense but fluffy interior. I had trouble finishing one because they are so rich and heavy that it fills you up very quickly. The doughnuts are really good, and we love how they offer a lot of unique flavor combinations that works so beautifully. Overall, these deliciously messy doughnuts are hands down one of Atlanta's most most deliciously delightful food you can ever taste. There's no doubt that Revolution Doughnuts is here to stay and we wouldn't be surprised to see this franchise expanding and opening new locations around Atlanta and beyond.

Don't Go Noseblind! Breathe Happy With Febreze {Review + Giveaway}

*This review and giveaway was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Febreze. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.*

When you have pets at home like us, it is very common to become noseblind, to the lingering odor they leave behind. We have two dogs, two cats, and we often foster rescues until they are ready to be adopted. The problem of becoming noseblind, is that you always have the doubt in the back of your mind that your house smells funny. 

I don't know about you but I panic when I know someone is coming over to visit. I clean the house from top to bottom, but I'm never fully satisfied because I always worry about odor infestation, in other words, what your guests overwhelmingly smell as soon as they walk in the door. Let's be real, we all know that person that can track scents like bloodhound. They can follow the scent trail and no matter how well you clean they can always find it.

My Stress-Free Thanksgiving Dinner - Why Honeybaked Ham is My New Best Friend

Don't sweat the small stuff! Have a Happy Thanksgiving with Honeybaked Ham!
No matter how much I plan a sensible Thanksgiving dinner, I always over-plan, over-work, and over-spend. This year I'll try a different approach. Cook as little as possible and leave the rest to Honeybaked ham. I'm willing to cook a 30 minute side dish (just one) and bake a simple dessert (apple crème brûlée bread pudding) but besides those two things (that can easily be made the day ahead) my kitchen will not be open during the holidays.
This year I choose to be happy and stress free for Thanksgiving. I refuse to slave all day in the kitchen. As much as I enjoy cooking there are days I wish I have a personal chef at home that could cook for me. Since I don't see this remotely happening, the best thing I could do is order the Honeybaked Ham Whole Turkey Feast. Perfect for the Holidays and special celebrations, this gourmet feast includes a whole roasted turkey, old-fashioned cornbread dressing, …
