Who Put the Hole in the Donut?

Football and a rags-to-riches story—perhaps the only things that America loves more than donuts. But the delectable rings of sugar and dough didn’t always appear in their now-ubiquitous circular form. So where did the donut’s shape (and its signature hole) come from? The curious story involves a boastful sea captain, a Massachusetts Native American with unparalleled aim, and a national debate. With the help of food historian Michael Krondl, we get to the center of this deep-fried mystery.

Ropes, Rhythm and Life: Inside Competitive Double Dutch

Khnaue Robinson, a senior in high school, has been competing in double dutch since she was 12 years old. She practices with her school’s team three times each week, and says being part of the team has given her a home—something she didn’t have before joining up.

How to Eat Like a Hindu God

The Ganesha Temple in Queens, New York, has been a cultural hub for Hindus in the United States since the 1970s. But this temple isn’t just dedicated to religious practice. The canteen in the temple’s basement is a bonafide restaurant, serving up more than 100 traditional vegetarian Indian dishes. What started as a kitchen to prepare food offerings to the gods has become a place for Hindus and non-Hindus alike to chow down on some of the most authentic South Indian food in New York City.

Julie and Andrew’s Converted School Bus Home

Julie and Andrew Puckett live happily in their converted school bus in Atlanta, Georgia. They were kind enough to give us a tour of their 200 square feet home that they appropriately call “The Housebus.” Thanks Julie and Andrew for sharing! You can learn more about them at their website: http://houseb.us. Their bus was featured on Tiny House Swoon awhile back here: http://tinyhouseswoon.com/house-bus-2/ If you like this video, like us on facebook and twitter.
