Getting Stuffed!

Each year as we sit around the dinner table with family and loved ones to take part in the infamous Turkey Dinner, one could never forget the additional star of the show; which is of course the Stuffing!

This Thanksgiving, Mixin’ It Up will be offering delicious stuffing. It is made from our delectable Bakery Fresh Bread recipe. It is toasted and seasoned with the perfect blend of spices that will surely make your loved ones appreciate the stuffing just as much as the turkey.

The bread we use is light and airy, and toasted to perfection; then tossed with seasoning that will bring any stragglers to the dinning table to partake in the festivities. We have included a winning stuffing recipe that is just as sure to please.

Don’t forget to stop in this week to pick up your stuffing before they are gone. We will be closed on Thanksgiving; so make sure you get in early. They always say: “The early bird gets the worm.” Well, we say “The early birds get stuffed.” Give us a call at (320) 259-7105 to reserve your order of stuffing today! Limited supply available.

Me oh My, I want PIE!

It is a fact that we “eat” with our eyes. When you think of the ultimate dessert, do you think of something hearty, light, fruit flavored? Or something in between?

When I think of the ultimate desert; immediately the pairing of chocolate and peanut butter come to mind. Our Peanut Butter Chocolate Ganache Pie is the Alpha of all pies. From it’s delicious oreo crust, to the peanut butter filling, or if like me; you LOVE the rich, ganache topping; this is the pie for you!

It’s Italian Baby…

“If you ever get the opportunity to travel to Italy; be sure to indulge in at least one authentic Italian Pasta Dish. Italy is known for their sauces; one of them being egg-based Carbonara.

artisan pizza bread

This pasta dish pairs nicely with our savory, Italian seasoned Artisan Bread. Our Italian Artisan Bread is seasoned to perfection with rich, Italian, flavors. Our customers love this bread so much that it’s hard to keep it in stock. One particular gentlemen buys this bread for his wife who is newly Gluten Free. They both have shared with us that the bread reminds them of their trips to Italy; as they would sink their teeth into the freshly baked bread.

We’ve brought a tiny piece of Italy cuisine right to your table. This week ONLY we will have coupons for $1 off ALL Artisan Breads! Have you gotten yours?”

I’m Fallin for you cookie…

Seriously, I mean I love fall…like love it so much it makes me want to wear warm fuzzy socks, sit on the couch with the fireplace roaring, and drink a lot of coffee.

Well, to be fair the drinking coffee part comes no matter what the season, but the other things, they I only feel really like doing in the fall. I mean, its all the beauty that Minnesota can offer, somewhat cool temps, but yet we are not freezing our hind ends off…yet!

So you may ask what this has to do with cookies…well, frankly in my life there are so many things that have to do with cookies because, I love them! To me, they are the perfect little snack. The right size so I can feel like I am having a little something, but not so much that when I get up the next morning I dont feel like I have been in a sugar coma! Unless I eat 12, but than, I was going for the sugar coma, so I got what I needed 😉

Molasses cookies SCREAM fall to me, they are warm, homey, and sooo yummy.  They are the number one sellers in the store, for a reason! They arent snappy like their gingerbread counterpart, they are soft, chewy, and with just enough sugar to make you consider going back for another…and another.

So now is the time! Get your bag of this amazing cookie mix, make some for the kids, your spouse, or most importantly yourself! And enjoy! You will be so happy you did, after all, fall goes by quickly so embrace it with cookies!

Our heart to yours…cookies and life

Today, in honor of our love for all things Fall, and Molasses, we wanted to share our “reason” why, and how these yummy cookies came to be.

May we introduce you to Lisa, and her Molasses cookie story (yeah its a thing!)

The Story
It started when a sweet, elderly gentleman came into Mixin’ It Up looking for Molasses cookies for his lovely wife. He’d gotten them once before at a bakery, and his wife loved them.

Now, needing Gluten free, he stopped by our bakery to request his wives favorite, Molasses. Not just any molasses would do, it has to be chewy, soft, and melt in your mouth good, just the way she remembered.  The sad news, we didnt carry Molasses cookies…yet!

Making this special trip to town just for cookies, was something he felt joy in doing, and seeing his devastation, Lisa, one of our MIU bakers, determined, “I HAVE to do something!”

So she personally took on the task of creating and developing the best possible gluten-free and dairy free, molasses cookie.

Now that gentleman and many other customers enjoy our delicious cookies all year long. Lisa has prided herself on making these (and when she sees her favorite customer pull up in front of the store, you will often see her going out to the car to hand deliver these wonderful little sweet treats!)
Now you can make Lisa’s famous gluten-free Molasses cookies right in your own home, filled with deliciousness and love – from Lisa’s heart to yours!molasses

Rice Craft Fair, what a wonderful weekend

Image result for thank you

What a wonderful weekend! The sun was shining, the birds were singing (well it might have been me singing while enjoying the sunshine, but we will go with birds, they sound better!) and we had a fabulous time getting to know and talk to so many of you.

We had about 1,000 people or so come and stop by our booth at the fair. Sold a lot of food, and had a great many laughs with our customers. It was so fun to meet so many of you who said “well I have heard of your store but hadnt had a chance to get in there yet!” And serve you probably some of your first, and tastiest, gluten free goodies.

Our hearts are continually grateful to you for all the support you give us, as a small business, who hand makes ALL of our products, you show us such gratitude for our hard work which just makes us work even harder to bring you the best tasting Gluten Free food you can find in Minnesota (and across the nation now that we ship).

Now, we will kick up our feet, sit and sip some coffee and dream of wonderful and tasty foods to make for you THIS WEEKEND, FOR NATIONAL BAKERY DAY!!!

Love to you all, and gratitude in my heart ~Jessi Brinkman (owner and goofy facebook live girl!)
