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.

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”

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,


Cloud Cookies/Bon Appetit/Oct. 31, 2012

Oregon-Made Artisan Weekend


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.

I love when I find people who are just as passionate about their careers as I am about mine.  After talking to Pai, the creator of Bunches & Bunches, I could really tell how much she loves her trade.  Her main ingredient?  Love.  Who couldn’t use more of that?

Miller Creative & Our Scrumptious Packaging


We want to send a big Thank you to Miller Creative for all the care that has gone into the details of our packaging…Snaps, Bailey’s Biscuits and now the Moles! It certainly helps us get to the show, AND sell out at places like Dean & DeLuca! Of course the taste of our products is key, but we like being well-dressed and expressing what we are about with style. Thank you Miller Creative!

Chef’s Dinner At The Snake River Grill

Pai is back in her Portland kitchen after a quick 48 hour trip to Jackson Hole in honor of the 20th anniversary of the Snake River Grill (photos). Pai is not just a cookie maven after all, but a professionally trained chef, and a loved one at that! Prior to starting Bunches & Bunches, Pai worked at the Snake River Grill and then at her own catering company, The Kitchen At Pai’s Place in beautiful Jackson. For this special occasion each table at the Grill enjoyed a hand delivered canister of her Cloud Cookies. What she enjoyed the most was being with old friends “on the line.”
“Love is the most precious ingredient.” – Pai
