Every Year the snow starts to fly, the Christmas trees go up, and the holiday music is playing on the radio, and in our hearts…. and it can only mean one thing…COOKIE TRAY TIME!!!!
Our absolute favorite time of the year, ugly Christmas sweaters and all, we hand made over 12,000 cookies for you and your families holiday enjoyment.
Each of us has a favorite, whether is Molasses (Lisa our star Sat employee) Peanut Butter Blossoms (Johns favorite) Russian Tea Cakes (mine and Melissa’s favorite which may or may not be eaten by the handfuls and pocketed in cheeks throughout the day…dont judge!) each of our cookies are made from a special recipe, with one purpose in mind, to bring our family favorites to your family and to show your a holiday blessing from us.
Make our days a little merrier and order yourself a Cookie Tray, or a holiday pie, and spread the holiday cheer!
Every year Mixin’ It Up chooses several different families in Minnesota, that you our customers nominate, and blesses them with holiday pies.
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!!
This time of year brings about enormous amounts of food; so much that we tend to indulge a bit more than we should. Here at Mixin’ It Up, we have a great alternative for you this holiday season. If you are looking for a good, low carbohydrate bread to make your sandwiches or burgers complete, look no further than our delicious Keto Bread!
This bread is made from an Almond Flour and Coconut Oil base. It is seasoned with our perfectly blended Flax and Chia Seed mixture. It has the consistency of banana bread but without all of the sugar. This bread melts in your mouth like butter. The delicious flavor of our Keto Bread speaks for itself.
It’s perfect for breakfast bread, lunch for that amazing meat and veggie sandwich or for your dinner bread side. At only 4 Net Carbs per serving, it’s sure to treat you right this Holiday Season. We have a limited supply on hand; so be sure to stop in and try it today. Or you can pre-order yours in time for all of your dinner needs this holiday season.
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!
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
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!)
We are kneading up some Cinnamon Raisin and Pizza Pull Apart Breads!! If we could only bottle the smell that is happening in this kitchen right now! YUMMM. Seriously the smells, the tastes and the flavor are just bursting around here!!
We are so excited to be making an appearance at the Rice Craft Fair this year, and showcasing some of our new bread! We have Caramel Apple, Spiced Pumpkin, Gingerbread with Cream Cheese, and Apple Cinnamon in mini loaves!!! Bursting with flavor, these breads will make you glad you are gluten free!!!
Stop by and see us this weekend at the Rice Craft Fair!
When it comes down to it, we believe most of us would rather be supporting a local business. We see the sayings “support local” all over, and it does make us feel good to know that when we make a purchase those dollars dont go to some huge box store but to a family, to employees who live in our town, and back into the community.
There are a few fun ways to support us
- Leave a Review! Had a great experience, liked the taste of something, appreciated that everything in the store was handmade by 2 people baking their little hearts out?! Well, leave us a review!!! They mean the world to small business
- Tell others about us. If you dont need Gluten Free, but you know people who do, please tell others about us. Word of mouth is so important. Small businesses cant afford to do a lot of advertising, so this is our most valuable form of getting our name out there
- Share our facebook statuses from time to time. Tag people who you know eat Gluten Free
All these things add up to helping a small business STAY IN BUSINESS. And it makes a world of difference in keeping our doors open.
