A Spring Time Reflection

Written by Gabriel Muzzolini
Since I’ve moved away from Saskatoon, it has been a year of firsts. And with Easter having come and gone, this was the first year I didn’t help prepare the baking for Easter weekend. While I don’t necessarily miss shaping and bagging hundreds and hundreds of buns, there was a part of me missing being with my family doing the one thing we do best. As a way of (emotionally) making up for my absence in the bakery, I wanted to take a moment to praise Blair and Tracey for all the amazing work they do. I know they don’t often brag about what they do, so I’ll gladly do it for them!

A Meal for One (Or More) in 5 Minutes!

·
Written by Gabriel Muzzolini

It’s probably safe to say that we all never seem to have enough time in the day. I’m merely working a job and going to school, some of us are doing that plus a second job. Then there’s all the parents having to do everything AND raise a family. I often find myself getting ready to eat dinner later and later, and by 10:00 I don’t really have enough energy to make a nice meal, nor do I have the time. Luckily for me, all students, and busy parents our Heat & Eat collection of products make it easy to make delicious, restaurant quality meals in a matter of minutes! 

Using our Heat & Eat pizzas and a handful of other ingredients I can guarantee you a nice dinner or lunch in only five minutes! We’ll be making a caprese salad to go along with the Heat & Eat Pizza of your choice. To be able to start cooking and eating in five minutes I’m going with a drizzle of olive oil and balsamic vinaigrette rather than a glaze or reduction.

Family and Food

Written by Gabriel Muzzolini

Last week my parents were in town. It was the first time I was able to see them in over a year and a half, besides a virtual chat of course. Obviously I love when I get to see my parents because it means that there will be food and drinks aplenty. And yes spending time with them,  catching up, and doing all the things parents and children do. But from day one to the last day of their trip, lunches, dinners, and get togethers were planned. Between the going out and homemade meals, it was abundantly clear how deep the tie between my family and food is.

You may know how linked we are to bread and baking (it has been our business for over 50 years after all), but I thought I’d share more about our family and our connection to food. Please forgive me for getting sentimental!

How to Construct the Perfect B.L.T.

With all due respect to the straightforward grilled cheese and classic PB&J, and even the sophisticated C.L.U.B sandwich, there is one sandwich I hold in higher regard than any other: the almighty B.L.T. While the CLUB describes the locations of select ingredients (chicken, lettuce under bread), the B.L.T describes the small amount of ingredients required to compile a delicious sandwich: Bacon. Lettuce. Tomato. Simple. Elegant. Tasty as heck.

Here are my tips to creating the best version of the best sandwich on the planet.

At the beginning of the month we announced a new program that allowed us to take the next step in giving back to our amazing city. At the end of each month we will be donating $1 from each sugar cookie we sell to a local organization. For June, we partnered with OUTSaskatoon, Canada’s second largest queer organization. They provide an abundance of support for the 2SLGBTQ community through education, counselling and plenty of other programs. I recently spoke with Wendy Li, one of the coordinators at OUTSaskatoon, to learn more about the organization and see what changes were coming their way.
