Send a thank you food gift for Father’s Day

Father’s Day is right around the corner. If dads are good at one thing, it’s dishing out fatherly advice.

thank you food gift for dadA thank you food gift from Fairytale Brownies is the ideal way to show you appreciate your old man’s wisdom. This Father’s Day, you can send gourmet brownies or cookies by mail wrapped in handsome Father’s Day gift bands.

Speaking of fatherly advice, BuzzSugar compiled a great list of quotes from movie dads – including George Banks of Father of the Bride, Mac MacGuff of Juno, and Jim Baker of Sixteen Candles. You can see the full list here, but these are three of our favorites:

  • "I'm only brave when I have to be, Simba. Being brave doesn't mean you go looking for trouble." ~ Mufasa, the Lion King
  • "A man who doesn't spend time with his family can never be a real man." ~ Vito Corleone, The Godfather
  • “You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view . . . Until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it." ~ Atticus Finch, To Kill a Mockingbird

Graduates: Send fudge brownies to those who helped you get through

So many of us have family and friends who will be graduating from high school and fudge browniescollege this month. Ceremonies and parties to attend, gifts to purchase. As they leave behind the past and ready for the future, I believe they should thank those who encouraged them during the challenging times with fudge brownies.

Whether it's a teacher, friend, relative, or co-worker - a sweet treat for all of the times they made life a little sweeter is a fitting gift.

 

 

My son will be graduating from dental school next week, and of course, I am extremely proud of him. He has worked so hard to achieve his goal. Although these past four years have been the craziest roller coaster ride he's ever experienced, the one thing we noticed is the same mentors, friends and associates who always are by his side ready to help him through.

Theirs a lasting bond, and should be celebrated. My son has placed his order and the gourmet brownie gifts will ship in time for graduation on Friday.

I hope he ordered a little...

Capturing the Deliciousness of Gourmet Brownies Through Photography

Most of Fairytale Brownies business is done through mail order. Many people order brownies, cookies and bars online at brownies.com or through a catalog before they even taste them. So it's really important that we have excellent photos of our gourmet desserts. Since you can’t taste the treats, we need to convey just how yummy they are through visuals!

Twice a year, my team and I spend one to two weeks with a professional photographer and food stylists to create the most delicious looking photography that we can. When your brownie delivery arrives, you can tell just by looking at them how great they are going to be, but capturing that in an image takes a lot of time and work. However, it is also a lot of fun!

Our gourmet brownies, cookies and bars really are the stars of the shoot. We spend time making sure each treat looks its best! Of course with all those gourmet brownies around, it is impossible not to treat ourselves to some sweets. After making them look so irresistible how can I not...

Rich, Callebuat Belgian chocolate vs. Spicy Mexican Chocolate

Having traveled to Los Cabos, Mexico recently, I noticed many delicious confections made with Mexican chocolate that I was dying to try. This got me wondering what exactly Mexican chocolate was and how did it differ from the rich, dark Callebaut Belgian chocolate that Fairytale Brownies uses to bake our decadent treats. Here's what I found:

Mexican chocolate is made from dark, bitter chocolate mixed with sugar, cinnamon, and sometimes nuts. The end result is a grainy, less smooth chocolate. It is frequently bought in disks, though you can also purchase the chocolate in bar and syrup form. The traditional uses for Mexican chocolate are hot drinks such as Atole (served with tamales), Champurrado (served as a dessert with churros or a sweet bread called Pan Dulce) and Mexican Hot Chocolate.

Other popular uses for Mexican chocolate are in Tejate (a cold drink made of dark chocolate, corn masa, cocoa flowers, then marinated and frothed), and Mole (a sauce filled with spices, tomato and...

Remember your favorite service person with Patriotic brownies for Memorial Day

send browniesMy son has always wanted to be a pilot. Except for an obsession with cooking shows, and my pots and pans when he was 2, he's always loved everything about flight, planes, jets, and the military.

Although I'm extremely proud of all that he's accomplished, and thankful for his service to our country (U.S. Air Force), like any Mom, I miss him terribly. Because he's stationed 6,000 miles away, I can't just hop on a plane and pop in for a visit. So we Facetime and email, and I send brownie care packages whenever the mood strikes.

brownie care packagesMemorial Day weekend is coming up. Whether you remember your favorite military person with a Patriotic gift from Fairytale Brownies, or order brownies for the party you're having in the back yard, we've got Memorial Day covered.

Fairytale makes it easy to send brownies - we ship to APO/FPO addresses.

But don't forget to send extras. They WILL share.

Have brownies delivered to a galaxy far far away on Star Wars Day

Geeks like me will celebrate this Sunday. It’s May the fourth. As in, may the fourth be with you. It’s Star Wars Day. Get it?! raspberry brownies delivered

Unfortunately, for Luke Skywalker and the gang, they didn’t have brownies delivered a long time ago in a galaxy far far away.

Wookiepedia has 139 pages dedicated to individual desserts from the Star Wars universe. (That’s 139 pages out of a total of 110,130 pages on other things like species, battles, and star systems!)

Instead of having brownies delivered, Luke may have soothed his sweet tooth on Octavian fruit pudding, Corellian fried ice cream, or Bantha breakfast biscuits. Wondering what the heck these are? Well, visit Wookiepedia to find descriptions like this one:

“Zoochberry cobbler was a type of dessert dish containing zoochberries. It was one of the Besalisk cook Dexter Jettster's favorite way of eating zoochberries and was served in Dex's Diner on the planet Coruscant where it cost 2.7 credits or with Denta bean ice cream for an extra 3 credits.”
