Break out the sprinkles: Today, June 7, is National Doughnut Day! Believe it or not, this day is no gimmick to sell more doughnuts (not that there's anything wrong with that – I'll take mine glazed, please). Beginning in 1938, the Salvation Army set aside the first Friday in June as Doughnut Day to commemorate the women in World War I who would serve doughnuts to soldiers. You can share this tidbit of history with your kids as you whip up a batch of your own doughnuts at home. Make them from scratch with a recipe for Krispy Kreme-style treats, or use premade dough to shape into doughnuts before putting them in the fryer. Then again, you might want to bake your doughnuts.
