OKKKKKKK. I finally went. It’s been my goal for about a year and a half to see what Chris was up to, using our bread for his sandwiches in the back of Galaxy Comics.. like what? I took the one & only Lisa Young with to capture our experience. I do not know anything about comics, but what I do know is that this space is bright, historical brick walled, organized, clean, and DANG GIRL DANG they have amazing food available -- not just for their comic friends, but everyone is invited! Want to go with me next time? This is what I ordered off their menu:Read More
If you’ve been eyeing up one of our coffee tumblers, you are in luck! Starting tomorrow, our ‘rosefinch’ & ‘moss’ coffee tumblers from MyByta are on sale! We have a few left, and we are looking to put some new colors on the shelf!Read More
When I opened the bakery in 2011, I was all for it because I enjoyed baking. I also enjoyed creating new spaces, organizing, setting things up, paint colors, putting things in their places… you get it. I enjoy hosting. I wanted to create a space for people to gather, hang out for a bit, & eat a cookie. I was 21 at the time, so I’ll admit I was just in the moment. I didn’t have a 1 year plan, a 5 year plan, or a 10 year plan (do people even do that..?)
Have you had any of our specialty cheesecakes yet? Every week we offer a few different varieties of cheesecakes in our cooler & it’s always fun to come up with new varieties! Speaking of, today Shelbie made a cherry cardamom cheesecake bar today & guess where the cherries came from?Read More
Ruby Roasters Stevens Point Cafe opened their doors this past Saturday -- serving our lovely community the best maple latte in all the land! Their soft opening last week was a success and instagram was blowwwinnn’ up with all the photos & positive comments regarding their new space, food, coffee, & sweet treats.Read More
“We should really start offering toast with good stuff on it.” I’m pretty sure that’s how it all started. My husband, Michael & I often eat a lot of bread. Focaccia on the stove, eggs on top, a good garlic spread, throw on some greens & sprinkle that everything spice! Or, sesame semolina, date & almond hummus from the SPA co-op, sharp cheddar cheese & black sea salt. These kind of snacks are the go-to in our household. Oh wait, can’t forget my absolute favorite -- Fig Fennel Hazelnut, goat cheese & honey. GAH. That’s what I’m taking with me the next time someone asks “If you were on an island and could only eat one thing, what would it be?” Actually, it used to be french fries or barbecue chips, but I think I’m switching it, like right now.Read More
“Ladies… I’ll take 8 Salted Caramel Monkey Breads” said the big guy. Loud voice, missing a tooth, very polite. Presley replied, “Why don’t you make it 10?” I was putting away sourdough loaves in the back corner of the bakery, crouched down, bottom rack, and said quietly to myself “Sell it girl, sell it.” I THOUGHT I said it quietly, but the big guy said “Did I just hear someone say sell it girl, sell it?” He immediately laughed so loud. I got up from the back and looked at him like a deer in headlights. We laughed again and boom -- friends. Ladies and gentlemen, meet James Jernberg - owner of Fiternal CrossFit in Stevens Point.Read More
Maybe you’ve heard the good news, and maybe you haven’t, but RUBY Roasters is opening a new cafe downtown Stevens Point and we CAN’T. FREAKIN. WAIT.
I’ve been obsessing over their new space, driving past it every week to see any update possible! The latest & greatest is their front porch, awning, & signage! GEEEEEEEEE.
Did you know that more than half of our flour is sourced locally right here in Wisconsin? Meuer Farm, located in Chilton, WI supplies the whole grains we use in our baked goods. We currently use their spelt flour, rye, and whole wheat. We are so fortunate to have them sustainably growing grains in our area! Here’s a little ditty right from their website about offering such a great product!Read More
Last week Quyen (owner of Assembly), and I went live on Instagram!

I was hanging out on my front porch about 4 years ago, when I got a Facebook message from the one and only Layne Cozzolino. “Girl, you should sell these bread wraps in the shop!” OF COURSE Layne would be the first person to know about these adorable, reusable wraps! So for that, I am very grateful! She included the link to their website, and BAM. I ordered. Thanks Layne ; )Read More
Did you know we have been making oatmeal cream pies since day ONE? Like February 11, 2011? Which means, we’ve been scooping oatmeal cookies & mixing up honey buttercream for 8 years. EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. That’s a lot of cream pies.
When I was a kid, my dad would wake up my sisters & I early on Saturday mornings. “Psssst, I’m going to the gas station. Wanna come with?” For him, it meant drinking black coffee with my grandpa + a bunch of buddies right next to those moving slushy machines. For us, it was a whole different story. We got to peruse the candy aisle, look at gas station gadgets, check out that blue slush puppy machine, and eventually we got to pick out a treat (the highlight)! I would either go for the little Debbie oatmeal cream pies, or a whatchamacallit candy bar. And that was that. So simple, but so memorable.Read More
Our latest & greatest is the FOCACCIA bread!
We’ve been making regular focaccia for Red Eye Brewing Co. in Wausau for awhile now. They use this savory bread for their “beets me” sandwich with beets (obvs), avocado, asiago, arugula, & tarragon aioli - YUM. It’s so good! I deliver their bread every Monday, and if I’m lucky & have the time, I’ll pull up a seat at the bar. “I’ll take the beets me sandwich, and a Red Eye Skyrocket Stout please.”Read More
RSO is a cooperative with 10 member farmers. Located in Custer, WI, they collectively work to provide produce for Central WI and the Fox Valley.

We have been working hard to create a new cake menu for this year! Trust me, it’s hard work to bake a cake and then have to sample it. Ha! Okay but for real, it has been quite the process! While we are busy in the kitchen, we brainstorm flavors with each other, create a list of ideas, narrow it down, and start experimenting!Read More
