There are a few gems we offer that arent on the menu (like our 4 for $5 bars, which include dipped oreos decorated all cute and Christmassy!)

Ever wondered what others have said about their orders: well wonder no more! Here are just a few comments we thought you might love to hear!

Ordered the Christmas Tray, my daughter was overjoyed and LOVED them!! They arrived quickly and in great shape.

I ordered the cookie platter, it was fantastic. I received it the next day all safe and sound, very well and nicely packed.

I ordered the Christmas cookie tray and it arrived in perfect shape! Wrapped really well and packaged carefully. Not a single broken cookie. Thank you so much for offering shipping!!

An except from an email of a special customer: I also want to thank you for the service you provide to the Celiac community. I work a lot and don’t have a lot of time for baking. Last Christmas I ordered a bunch of things from you including one of the Christmas variety trays., for my spouse. It was really beautiful to see the sheer JOY it gave him to have those cookies.

Wondered about our bread? Heres what a few customers told us this month: The BEST (and I can’t stress this enough) BREAD.

From another Customer: Yes my non-GF boyfriend is now always like “do we have anymore of that yummy French toast bread?”

Everything we’ve tried has been a delightful treat Cupcakes and muffins are amazing and have enjoyed their Christmas cookie selection yearly and macaroons. So so good!

A word from a customers at a twin cities pick up in November: I got cinnamon rolls & garlic bread at the Maple Grove pick up today. Amazeballs!!! I ate 1 cinnamon roll & I’m going to freeze the others to savor every weekend. The garlic bread doesn’t even need to be toasted. I am going to dip it in olive oil & parmesan cheese. Thank you for the amazing gluten free deliciousness.

On a personal note: This year, we have looked forward to helping make your Christmas Merry and Bright. Its been a hard year for so many of us, and we want to take this moment to tell you how much we love and appreciate all of you, our customers who we look to as family. You have amazed us by your love and support, you have honored us by sharing your stories of hardships and challenges, and you have stood by us through some shipping struggles. We want you to know we love you and are honored to serve you, for however long you are here to support us, we will be here doing the absolute best we can to bring your family wonderful treats!

Small Business Saturday Specials

Wisconsin's Small Business Saturday More Important Than Ever This Year -  Milwaukee Community Journal

Today is a very important day for many small businesses, and ours is no different. We work diligently all year long striving to make you and your family the best treats around. While there have been times this year when our hard work and efforts did not always work out well in the end (melty, ill timed deliveries, less than beautiful products that will continue to haunt us for all our days) we put ourselves out there time and again to try to be there for your families. Sometimes it didnt work out, most of the time, it did.

We have hung in together, and the uplifting phone calls, emails, , facebook messages even cards in the mail have been a life line to us to remind us that what we do, with our small band of 4 employees, makes a difference and that together we are all better when there are many of us working to make small businesses like ours survive.

For so many things, on this small business day we take a moment to again say thank you. You fill our hearts with joy, keep pushing us to do and be better, and make us want to keep going even when we feel like giving up. Thank you for being the customers who help keep our vision clear and our oven running.

For small business Sat, as a thank you. We are offering you some in store AND onine specials.

  1. Get a $25 gift certificate and you get a $5 one FREE! That is a great stocking stuffer
  2. Buy 2 goat lotions or body butters and get a bath salt free. These lotions are seriously amazing
  3. Buy 5 gluten free mixes (online and instore!) and get 1 FREE!!! This is a great deal, these mixes can be stored for up to 6 months and they are amazing gifts!

Cooler Temps, New Stickers and Happier Customers

Gosh, we feel like we have been on a never ending treadmill with all the shipping troubles we have had in the past few months. Now, if you know me, you know I do not enjoy treadmills…AT ALL. So this has been an experience we are keeping our fingers crossed we don’t have to go through again.

When Covid hit, we wanted to make sure everyone knew we would do whatever it took to be here for you. Gluten free is hard enough to find, but there is something about walking into a grocery store, when you need to feed your family members (I was that same mom staring at those empty shelves for my family as well) and not being able to find any on the shelves. It gives you a sinking feeling, and we already had enough sinking feelings in our life at the time.

We did not expect that what was once a shipping company that reliably got the food to you next day, would suddenly be experiencing triple their volume in shipping and not be able to get the packages out in a timely manner. This made for a soggy mess when the customers got their orders.

The shipping company has slowed down, and started to get a handle on “the new normal” and we have purchased these happy new stickers that say “perishable” on them. This and the fact that we are hand writing the words “food” on the sides and top of the boxes, well this along with the cooler temps, has made for a few weeks of very successful shipping.

We are certain there will be some bumps in the road but each week we there seems to be smoother sailing up ahead! Finally!!!! You cant even imagine what it did to our small business week after week to get frustrated customers on the end of the phone line or email line who felt they might not order again because their food did not arrive until 6 days later and was not in great shape. It broke our hearts, we wanted to pull down the site, but even through the frustration we had many of you ask us to keep going with it so you had options, and a chance at getting food that was safe and quality for your family to eat. We listened and did our best, but we know a lot of times, our best just did not do well enough.

While we always tried to make it right, we know that this doesnt mean you will trust us again to order from us. We get that. Some of you had more than 1 bad delivery, which makes it even more challenging. We hope that you will give it one more chance with the cooler temps.

We are offering $10 off shipping THIS WEEK ONLY. Coupon Code: Freeshipping

We ship our orders on Tues and Thursdays (by noon) so make sure if you would like to order that now is the time.

Mini Donut Day! August 8th 10am – 12pm

There is always a certain excitement in the air that goes through the bakery when we start to plan the next big Mini Donut day!

We love the customers it brings out from near and far, but more than that we love the smiles from the kids, the moms and dads who get to bring their celiac kids to a special event, that they cant do at fairs across the state (okay okay we know there are no fairs this year but you know what we mean!) and the smiles, and hugs we get from so many of you who we dont get to see all that often.

We are serving up some hot, fresh and amazing donuts again! They are only $5 a bag and so worth the drive. Ask those customers who put off weekend plans to make this their weekend plan <3.

Come one come all, we have a beautiful city, with lovely parks, the Mississippi river running through it, we have bistro sets outside the store, and we have lots of smiles and yummy treats (even besides the donuts!!!) so make sure you stock up. From pizzas, to garlic bread, buns and cupcakes, there so just so many choices!!!!

Get those calendars marked, get the car filled up with gas and get the family ready… we got mini donuts to eat!

Cant wait to see you all!!!!
