Shhhh It’s hidden..

Shhhh It’s hidden..

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:

“I opened a bakery because I liked baking”

“I opened a bakery because I liked baking”


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..?)

I want TOAST!

I want TOAST!

“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.

“Ladies, I’ll take 8 Salted Caramel Monkey Breads Please”

“Ladies, I’ll take 8 Salted Caramel Monkey Breads Please”

“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.

The coolest way to store your bread!

The coolest way to store your bread!

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 ; )

Since day ONE!

Since day ONE!

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.

WE GOTCHA...

WE GOTCHA...

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.”
