Our prize is a $30 gift certificate to Brody’s Bakery. If you’ve never heard of Brody’s Bakery, it’s all vegan, gluten-free baked goods. Cookies, truffles, cakes, pies, breadsticks… she even has donuts and mock-ups of some popular treats you’ll recognize. She constantly updates her Facebook page with her newest treats.
Let me tell you from personal experience, the oatmeal creme pies must be cooked with crack — they’re SO addictive and amazing. Head on over to her website to see the full menu that you could choose from if you win! May I recommend, however, that you hold onto your gift certificate until November/December and order from her special Christmas boxes? Or splurge on her Halloween stuff… or anything else… you really can’t go wrong.
Best of all, guess who single-handedly runs Brody’s Bakery? Our very own Katie! Named after her own son, Brody, Brody’s Bakery was a creation of hers out of necessity and a noticeable under-covered market. Here’s a quote from her feature in The Examiner:
Katie’s passion for our four-legged friends, particularly pitbulls, adds another unique perspective to Brody’s bakery. Along with running her bakery in high style, Katie also volunteers for Missouri Pitbull Rescue and is one of the lovely women featured in Pinups for Pitbulls; a non-profit organization that raises funds and awareness for pitbulls and all bully breed dogs.
Katie says, “There is a belief in Hinduism that whatever you’re eating carries a bit of the “state of mind” of the person who made it, and I truly believe this. I hope that the compassion and kindness that I try to carry with me comes out in my desserts and I hope that above all else I can help to remind people that ‘living without’ can always be delicious!”
So, I’m sure what you’re all wondering now is when I’m going to shut up and get to the part about how you can win this gift certificate, right? Okay, okay.
Okay, you got that? Take your time…
