Our happy little shops...

For those of you who don't know, we've changed Just Baked Boise to >> Boise's Bakery. Due to a few name complications with another bakery, but all is well now :).

I'm writing this blog post, not only because I haven't written one in about a month, :) but also because I want to tell you what we do, what we want to do and just to keep you up to date.
So here go's something! ;)

Boise's Bakery has been very busy, as well as Bee Wise and The Soda Works. We are so blessed, and so thankful for all of Boise's support.
We had a few bakery orders throughout February.
We made mini Raspberry & Lime Fruit Tarts and Salted Caramel  Macarons for one of the Boise Art Museum's events. 
Also other things here and there.

What we do with our tips:
As our way to give back to the community, at the end of each month we give 75% of our tips collected to someone who our customers have nominated, someone {or family} who really need it. The other 25% goes toward my savings for Culinary School.

What we strive for as a small business:
We want to make a comfortable happy place to stop by, shop, and possibly get a unique snack or soda. We try to make our shops positive and unique, while at the same time treat you as our friend.

A bit of our future plans:
We are going to do the best we can to make our little business better and better each day, weather it's in a big way or in a small way. :) Somewhere in the unknown future we would also like to provide seating for those of you who want to sit and eat {or just hangout :)}. But that's all just an idea at the moment.

Once again thank you to the people who support us and visit us often. 
Without you, none of this would be possible. Even though running the business is a huge part of everything we do, you are a huge part too. :)

Thank you!

December was crazy busy, but it was a great month. I still had a few photos I really liked, so I decided {even though it's February} I wanted to post them and share a few things about our December here in the crazy land of the Krakes.
All the shops were really busy. We had lots of fun as a family, but I must say it was sooo fast! In the blink of an eye December AND January were gone! I think I need to stop blinking... ;).

The critters {Pearl + Jack} tried their best to stay in the house. Except for the occasional tip-toe out to bark at the neighbors, protect their territory thing, regular dog stuff.

Dear Snow,
Will you please stick around for some snowball fights and sledding? I promise you, it will be fun, pretty please?
 
We had a little bit of snow that came to visit us. My sister and I try to make the most of it {when it comes} because it usually doesn't stay long.

We went to a Food Truck Rally, which was delicious!
It was kind of hard to decide between the different food trucks.
After thinking and reading the menus, I decided to go with Archie's Place. I ate a delicious, completely scrumptious, mouth watering {and any other adjectives you can think of} Grilled Cheese Sandwich with a Corn Chowder on the side...

While I worked on Christmas gifts I had two little buddies beside me snoring away.
This is where Jack really likes to be, NOT prancing in the snow. Pearl doesn't seem to mind the snow, but I can see why. She's 5 times as fuzzy.

Once again, thank you so much for coming by.
It really means a lot to me, I hope you have a great February!

 Today we have a tasty recipe for you! AND, it's gluten-free and dairy-free! 
Yay!

They taste buttery and they're chewing and basically all around delicious. 
Let's get to it.

Head Red + Blondi

You will need:

It's as simple as that! Remember, if you do choose milk chocolate chips, the cookies won't be dairy-free anymore.

Okay first preheat the oven to 350 degrees, then mix everything together:
