The Latest Juicy Bits


mole

Hello Friends!

It continues to be a deliciously fun ride at Bunches & Bunches. Our products are reaching more people, we continue to love each other (of course!) and enjoy eating our own creations! Mark’s favorite question everyday – “What’s for dinner?” Tonight, our very own green fire-roasted chile sauce (pictured above/photo via food52). Yum! Life is good.

Here are some of the juicy bits as of late:

1.) The best first…We have added two new dog loves to our pack (pics @eatmoretreats)! A brother and sister who were ready for a new home, our home. She’s a muppet dog we call “Lex” and he’s a thick-headed yellow lab named “Luke Skywalker,” who we are lovingly calling “Chunk.” It’s been really fun to take river swims with a pack of three again and enjoy life together.

2.) We continue our relationship with Food52 – Provisions, a wonderful online store, who just celebrated their first birthday. Happy Birthday!! We love being alongside such tasty, incredible creations!

3.) Bunches & Bunches moles/sauces are now available in California and the Rocky Mountains region! Stay tuned for a list of new stores carrying our Provisions brand  (like Nugget Markets). This is a wonderful development. I mean, it is what we are eating tonight! We love sharing the love.

4.) We are preparing for our second showing at Feast Portland! Come visit us there at the Oregon Bounty Grand Tasting. It’s a delicious time!

5.) One more juicy bit…We have been selected as one of the 2014 Martha Stewart American Made Awards Finalists. Ten winners will be announced on October 17th, we will let you know! Or, look for us on Instagram (@eatmoretreats) posting pics from NYC! It’s all a treat, this adventure of love.

That’s our news. We hope that you are adding bunches and bunches of love to your life and your meals. Enjoy the journey and savor life!

Love,

The team at B & B xo

Cloud Cookies in Bike Basket - Style Jackson Hole

It’s a beautiful day here in Portland, OR. We just finished hand wrapping Cloud Cookies fresh from our oven for the lovely Dépanneur in Brooklyn. We look forward to visiting Dépanneur and being inspired for our next picnic – urban or in a place as magical as our now city, Pdx, or our old town, Jackson Hole, WY (where the bicycle photo was taken by dear friend, Lisa Flood, StyleJacksonHole.com).

Hope you enjoy many good treats and eats wherever you may be!

Much love from us,

Bunches & Bunches

Bailey’s Biscuits In 1859 – Oregon’s Magazine


cover 1859 magazine

Woo Woo! Bunches & Bunches Bailey’s Biscuits dog cookies were selected by 1859 for the Ultimate Oregon Gift Guide.

Like all of our products, we make these dog cookies with so much love! Bailey was our first dog, a people person to the core, a lover, a snuggler, a playful fan of walks, swims, and romps in the snow – especially when we lived in Jackson Hole. We got Bailey in Jackson, as well as Jack and Daisy, and were inspired to create Bailey’s Biscuits for all dog loves. The ingredients are such a high quality, even dog loving people can eat Bailey’s Biscuits (although most humans prefer a bit more salt).

It’s an honor and delight to have our product featured in the beautiful December issue of 1859 magazine. We are loving making our goods and treats in Oregon for people (and dogs) everywhere.

Blessed here at Bunches & Bunches and wishing you heaps of love!

Moles In Sunset Magazine

bow1213t-55396 Gift Guide

“15 amazing foodie gifts

Handmade kitchen gadgets, delectable treats, and more for the gourmand or avid home cook” – Sunset Magazine, December 2013, Your Holiday Gift Guide

Mark’s Bunches & Bunches sauces strike again!

We are so thrilled to have our products featured in the beautiful Sunset Magazine, a publication we subscribe to and savor. Bailey’s Biscuits for dogs were the Editor’s Choice in December 2011, and our moles have been selected for this year’s best foodie gifts.

We make each batch of mole by hand in our kitchen in Portland, roasting, peeling, cooking the chiles…we label each jar and send them off ourselves. It’s rewarding to know that people are loving these provisions as much as we are in love with making and eating them at our own table. See our recipe page for ideas in cooking with these three hand-crafted sauces, and let us know what deliciousness you create. Wishing you the best this season and all year.

Cheers!

Linen Bib Apron from Bunches & Bunches – Provisions


Pai (Chef and Creator of Bunches & Bunches) wanted to improve upon the aprons she tested for years in professional kitchens and at home, so she designed one! Of course that’s the kind of things she loves to do. This linen bib apron is both comfortable and stylish – a fit for all sizes and made locally in our hometown by The Portland Garment Factory.

Pai loves this apron for many reasons – it protects her clothes, has double ties, pockets, and is both comfortable and elegant if you forget it’s on and sit down for dinner.

 Also available are our can’t-live-without 100% Cotton Flour Sack Towels bundled in a gift set of three.

Cloud Cookies in Bon Appetit – Perfect “Tiny End”


20131015-194306.jpg
A long time fan and subscriber of the magazine – it was a special JOY to have our Cloud Cookies recommended by Bon Appétit in 2012 as one possible perfect ending to a Thanksgiving dinner. Here’s what they say:

Try the cloud cookies from Bunches & Bunches, in Portland, Oregon. A cross between a meringue and a macaroon, these airy, gluten-free confections are a sweet and, more important, tiny end to the meal. Plus, they come individually wrapped and piled into an impressively designed container.

– Bon Appétit/ October 31, 2012/Thanksgiving 2012, What to Buy, A Mail-Order Thanksgiving Dinner, for the Lazy Gourmet

Pure pleasure! The Cloud Cookies were my first product and I still love making them and sharing them with others.

Bunches and Bunches of Love,

Pai

Oregon-Made Artisan Weekend


OregonMade_LP-Banner_716x300

We took part in an Oregon-Made Artisan event at Rejuvenation last weekend. Rejuvenation is a beautiful store here in Portland (with stores in Seattle, Los Angeles, and Berkeley). Bunches & Bunches was invited to take part in the event at the Portland store, just a few blocks from our kitchen! We handed out samples of our cookies (for sale at the store), and sold aprons designed by Pai and the moles concocted by Mark (if you haven’t tasted them yet, see why the Wall Street Journal gave us some hot love in their Bits & Bites section this year!).

We loved watching kids and parents sample our cookies and peruse Rejuvenation’s treasures, and it was great to meet other local makers like, Portland Beard Co., Flint & Lars, and Jacobsen Salt Co.

Our Bailey’s Biscuits will continue to be available to dog lovers at each of the Rejuvenation stores, and all three of our cookie products – Cloud Cookies, Snaps and Bailey’s Biscuits – are currently for sale in the Portland store.

Make and savor with love! Wishing you a very happy November.
