Store Hour Changes, Curbside Pick Ups!

limited store hours

While we work towards understanding how to approach the days ahead, and making sure that we are looking out for our employees, families, customers (who lets acknowledge we feel like you are also our families!) and the community at large, we have been faced with the question of how to best keep everyone safe and yet, still provide safe and yummy breads and desserts for those who would like them.

Curbside~ Ideally, we would love for as many people to utilize this option as possible. We understand that this a different way to shop, but it is the safest way to shop as we approach the need to socially distance ourselves to keep the most at risk safe. We would love for you to utilize this option. Our number is 320-259-7105. 

Online Shopping~ If you would like to shop online we have provided a coupon code of $5 off with the code “baked” and have added several new items that are now available online. Orders are sent out on Tues, Wed and sometimes Thurs, depending on SpeeDees ability to get the orders to you before the weekend.

In Store~ for now, we will be closing in store visitors during these hours. Our selection will be focused on bread, as we know its the time to stock up, cupcakes and muffins. If you are looking for something specific it is a good time to call ahead to ensure we have that.

With all of us sticking together we will get through these times, we will do what Americans do best, which is stick together, link arms and help one another out.

In the meantime we will do our best to support you, as we know you will do your best to support Small Business and for that we all have a lot to be grateful for.

With so much love and a grateful heart~ Jessi, John, and Staff.

$5 off shipping

5 offfWhen we all ban together, we are stronger and healthier. We know that there is a lot of uncertainty right now, we our families, with our health and with our futures.

We are a small business, who is locally owned, with children of our own who are being quarantined as well. We are feeling that same sense of amazement, nerves, and uncertainty, so in this we are all together as one.

One thing we are certain of, is that we dont need to add one more stress to our lives by not being able to find Gluten Free food on the shelves in stores, and we can not sacrifice our families health by not giving them the food they need to be healthy. We have breads for sandwiches, buns, desserts and mixes. All items are ALWAYS celiac safe.

With the promo code: “Baked” you will receive that $5 off your order.

We will be shipping out on Tues, Wed and Thurs each week to ensure you get your food in a timely manner, and as fresh as possible.

support local

 

Finally, please remember, as a local gluten free bakery, who specializes in serving your family and their dietary needs, your support and purchases are VITAL to us right now. There are many small businesses that will not make it through this crisis, and we are asking you to consider doing your part in helping to support our business as we face times of uncertainty in the future.

Celebrating a Month of Celiac

celiacawarenessmonthWhen one thinks of an autoimmune disease, they dont usually align that word with celebration.  Typically, I agree, however there are times when perhaps celebrating is not only appropriate but frankly needed in the face of life’s journey and challenges.

May is Celiac awareness month, and for this one month, the light of Celiac and autoimmune disease in general signs just a little brighter and it gives a platform to use to educate people on the challenges, symptoms, struggles and triumphs of Celiac disease (yes there are some joys, like not feeling sick all the time once you know what you are eating is hurting you).

More people are getting diagnosed with Celiac, and as we all know, many Americans live with undiagnosed Celiac disease and suffer without knowing or understanding what this disease is doing to their bodies.

When we started the gluten free journey in our own world, in our family, few people had really heard of Celiac, and even worse, most people thought that Gluten Free was some sort of fad and buzz word. While it has taken some time and A LOT of education, more and more people are understanding what the disease IS and what it is not.

It is not made up, it is not something that can be “taken lightly” and it is not something that you can “have just a little of” (no you can not have just a little gluten in something you will get sick!)

As the month of May comes to a close, and the battle for many lives on day after day, we wanted to take a moment and remind you of a few things.  The most important is that you do not battle alone. Across the state there are more and more Celiac safe facilities that are working to make sure your food is safe.  There are communities of people who are battling the same things day in and out as you are, and there is continuously more awareness around what Celiac and other autoimmune disease are and do our bodies.

Most importantly: there are people who care, really care, just come in to the bakery and you will find people always on staff more than willing to share a smile and a listening ear (sometimes some advice).

We must keep fighting the battle of awareness for our kids, grandkids, family members and ourselves.

Finally, there are many things to be grateful for, because in the moment Celiac disease is frustrating, but it doesn’t have to be the definition of our life… (it is not the explanation point, only a comma in life’s storybook we are living) we still and always get to chose the kind of person we are, the kind of life we life and the gratitude in our hearts, and the joy, kindness, and compassion we get to share from our life experiences on to others.

Battle on Celiac Disease warriors, Mixin’ It Up Gluten Free Bakery, and others like us are here not only as a place to provide you with safe and healthy (and tasty!) food but to link arms with you and remind you, you never have to battle alone. There is support, and there is hope…Always!

Blessing others with FREE PIES!

Every year Mixin’ It Up chooses several different families in Minnesota, that you our customers nominate, and blesses them with holiday pies. Image result for pie giveaway

We all know someone who has fallen on hard times. Maybe you know someone who just got diagnosed with Celiac disease, and are struggling to figure out the holiday season. What about a mom who is single and trying to make ends meet. Perhaps a family member who is dealing with an illness that makes the holidays harder to do get through all the baking.

We are asking you, our customers and friends, to nominate families who could use an extra step of cheer in their holiday this year. We would love to partner with you to make this happen for some of our local families.

We are asking from you, please email us their name (and we would also love to hear if there is a story you would like to share as to why they are being nominated). You can go on Facebook to tag people, send us a private message or even give us a call. Our hearts desire is to bless those in need and to partner with you in doing it! What a great feeling for this, the most magical time of the year!

Lets make someones season better, and a lot tastier! We will chose winners on Tues Nov 20th, so now is the time to get nominating!!

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!

Image may contain: food

 

This showstopper will surely be the centerpiece of any special gathering. When you bite into this decadent pie, you are tasting a little slice of heaven. The semi-sweet oreo crust is paired with a creamy, peanut buttery filling. Then you add on the luscious, ganache topping; topped off with exquisite peanut butter frosting accents and sprinkles of our deluxe peanut butter crumble. What more could you ask for in a hearty, decadent dessert that will surely please any guest.

 

Be sure to stop in and pick up your scrumptious showstopper for your next gathering. We have a limited supply of these on hand; don’t let this amazing pie walk out the door without YOU. Call ahead to place your order to receive your pie just in time for the holidays
