Marble Frosted Donuts There’s a donut shop exactly two blocks away from the house I grew up in. A good donut shop, I should note. The owner – Suzy Jo Anne (yes; real name) – makes exactly 120 donuts each day – and each day, without a doubt, ALL said 120 donuts FLY off the shelves. If you want any chance of scoring your favorite flavor – or any flavor, for that matter – you gotta get there early… otherwise it’s slim pickings.
