When it comes to Brunch, it’s almost like a contact sport trying to beat the crowds in Raleigh (I must have sports on the brain, it is Super Bowl Sunday after all). If you don’t make that golden hour between church crowds and late Sunday risers, you could be waiting a long, long time for your pancakes. Add a hip little restaurant opening its doors for Brunch for the first time and you can see the dilemma. Luckily for Market (938 N. Blount Street, Raleigh, NC 27604), the food is so good, I would have waited a whole day for it.

I grew up not too far away from the border of NC, so it amazes me that I lived so close, yet never had a cheerwine. So many wasted years…. Cheerwine is just one of those things that I think of when I think of North Carolina now. And in the world of breakfast pastries, Krispe Kreme stands head and shoulders above everything else, at least to my fellow Southerners and I. So when Tony uttered the four most magical words to me, “Cheerwine Krispe Kreme Doughnuts,” how could I resist?

I’ve never been one for sweet breakfasty breads; something about cinnamon buns and the like makes me rush for a nap. But, even more than that, I also hate a waste of food and after weeks of throwing away bananas, I had enough. It was time to master the art of banana bread.

then get thee to NC state campus tomorrow for the Krispe Kreme Challenge. This has been going on four six years now, where the brave and iron-stomached run two miles to the Krispe Kreme on Person Street, eat a dozen donuts, then run back. Unfortunately, Tony and I won’t be able to make it this year, but we’d love to hear some stories for the tough souls who make it through 🙂
Here’s a link for more details:

Okay, in case you haven’t figured it out I am a huge junk food junky, particularly gas station fare.
