Krispy Kreme Summer Doughnuts

Krispy Kreme summer donuts

As a friend and I embarked on a road trip, I stopped at Krispy Kreme to get us some of the summer-inspired doughnuts.

Krispy Kreme summer donutsThe fruity doughnuts include pineapple, key lime and strawberry. They each have a little sugar decoration that makes them look like the fruit.

Krispy Kreme summer donutsThey're in stores through June 16. Which is your favorite? My vote goes to pineapple.

Taste-Of-ALL 2019

Taste of all 2019Taste-Of-ALL was held this past weekend, and it's always a nice taste of the upcoming FestivALL.

Taste of all 2019My friend Meghan and I headed out to get samples from area restaurants. New this year was Chow Thai, so I was excited to try their "larb" which is a sort of meat salad with spices in a lettuce wrap.

Taste of all 2019I also tried the "Korean meatball" from Ichiban, which was a departure from my typical order of Almost Heaven maki here.

Taste of all 2019Big Joe's was serving up "Buffalo Pork Belly Chicharron" which you can see above.

Taste of all 2019And then I had to try a little bit of everything at Recovery Sports Grill: Buffalo Chicken Wonton, Crispy Artichoke with Lemon Garlic Aioli and a Maryland Crabcake.

Taste of all 2019For dessert, I got a butter pecan ice cream cone from Ellen's Homemade Ice Cream.

Taste of all 2019And, we ended our visit by watching a pepperoni roll walk - Charleston's take on a cakewalk. Prior to this event, I had no idea what a cakewalk was. But I can tell you, I now prefer a pepperoni roll walk.

Winners: Brick Salt Bar + Kitchen took home top honors, as did chef Brentford Young from Four Points during the Chef's Challenge cookoff.

Bruceton Mills: Spent Grain Cafe

Screech owl & spent grain

I've been to Screech Owl Brewing many moons ago.

Screech owl & spent grainSince my last visit, they expanded to include a restaurant.

Screech owl & spent grainThat restaurant is called Spent Grain Cafe.

Screech owl & spent grainIt's such a neat concept that they're using spent grain from brewing for their pizzas and sandwiches - and pepperoni rolls!

Screech owl & spent grainOf course, their main star here is the beer.

Screech owl & spent grainSo, we ordered a sampler to try a bit of everything.

Clutch wingsI couldn't get enough of the Wild & Wonderful Strawberry Ale.

Screech owl & spent grainWe tried a pizza - and it's neat that the crust is almost a little sweet.

Screech owl & spent grainAnd the pepperoni roll!

Screech owl & spent grainWe ended up getting them to go, but they were fresh and warm.

Screech owl & spent grainThis is definitely one of the more unique pepperoni rolls I've had!

Morgantown Edition: Clutch Wings

Clutch wings

I've, of course, had Clutch Wings before.

Clutch wingsOne cool thing about this is that they now have dine-in space.

Clutch wingsI ordered six boneless sweet honey wings.

Clutch wingsAnd a Kool-aid!

Clutch wingsThe wings are more like chicken tenders that have been sliced up.
