The Cronut Chronicles: Cronut Crazy

I know you'll feel sorry for me when I say that last month I sacrificed my health to find the best-tasting O.C. cronut for our Three's a Trend piece. Our team tried nine different croissant-donut hybrids from five local bakeries--Pandor, The Donuttery, Paris Baguette, Café 109, and Kelly's Burgers & Donuts--and narrowed it down to three. We crowned Kelly's blueberry cronut the winner.

We wanna see your cronut photos! For more on this sinful confection that caused a New York frenzy and thankfully found its way to Orange County, share your photos with us by tagging #cronutsOC!

Designated a state scenic highway, the route passes along the charming cities of Bishop, Crowley Lake, Mammoth Lakes, and Bridgeport, and the eastern side of Yosemite National Park. Pack your binoculars and be prepared for challenging mountain trails to reach some breathtaking views. Read More
  • Best of 2014: Nutty Brûlée

    No one can resist breaking into the sugary crust of crème brûlée, and this one packs an extra surprise with its abundance of silky-smooth chocolate-hazelnut custard below—thanks to the addition of Nutella. This sinful dessert is incredibly rich and best shared with a friend. $8
