What's Changed since 1951? Thanksgiving then and now.

In my November newsletter, as is my habit, I always end up with upcoming events. For Nov. 8th, I reminded everyone that it would be election day and you should exercise your right to vote. One of my employees had not voted in over 12 years. My encouragement worked as he cast a ballot after my entreaty to vote. I commented that the new president elect, whoever it may be deserves our support. At that time it was widely believed that Hillary Clinton would be the victor. The fact that Donald Trump won, doesn’t change my call for unilateral support. I understand that some people may feel wronged, but...

A Kaleidoscope Of Colors, Tastes & Smells... It Must Be Autumn!

It is November and finally there is some Autumn-like crispness to our evenings. I like fall because of the kaleidoscope of colors on my trip home, the ability to take a strenuous walk without sweating, the World Series and particularly this year, a visit from our new granddaughter. I know I am biased but isn’t she a cutie. Who would know that I would be making silly faces and even sillier noises just for the hope of a smile. Carole’s feelings are extremely evident in the above picture. There is only one downer in this whole grandparent experience: she is all the way on the west coast. We are counting the days to Christmas when my son’s family comes for their next visit.

Back to School? Um... Not So Fast!

Watching a little television or listening to the radio, the mediums are full of back to school advertisements.  In that vein, it was my intention to make this issue back to school related.  Our college aged counter help is coming up on their last week here. However, with the daytime temperatures in the 90’s and humidity likewise, it sure doesn’t feel like school days and autumn are around the corner.  Similar to the 60’s in December, it just doesn’t feel right.

The temperature and the humidity create great challenges to the baking process.  It is hard to control the...

Sweets & Sunsets, Perfect Together!

Key West, Florida is considered the southernmost point of the United States. I have visited there several times for both business and pleasure. Each time the hotel staff urges you to visit Mallory Square for the sunset. You will have an unobstructed view of the sun falling into the horizon. Also, Mallory Square is host to a nightly parade of characters supposedly celebrating the change from day to night.
 
Over the past few weeks I have had occasion to drive through Cold Spring Harbor around 8:15pm. This included the summer solstice. The first time I had to slow down by the Harbor Mist as many people were crossing the street to Billy Joel Park. Their purpose: to view and photograph the magnificent sunset....

I want to talk to you about blueberries...

I was at a golf dinner just before Memorial Day. When one of the fellas at our table found out I owned Reinwald’s Bakery he said, “I want to talk to you about blueberries.” He had previously been involved with a large food company and they were always concerned about their blueberry muffins, He asked what we used. I replied, It’s complicated. It depends on the application and possible trade offs. For example let’s look at Blueberry Muffins. The best taste inside a muffin is wild blueberries. However, they are tiny, tiny and bleed into the mix making it blue without much visible berries. When you use cultivated blueberries they are larger and you see them in the finished product; but you don’t get quite as many and the flavor not as vibrant. At the bakery we use a mixture of both. This fella said to me, “It seems you know your blueberries. We spent a bit of time and research to come up with the same answer.”

PSA: A Mother's Day Plea

Why a public service announcement from you local bakery? For that very reason. We are a community based business and if we see a threat or danger to Huntington we feel an obligation to speak up.
This year to honor Mother's Day I ave a plea for every mother's son and daughter. A mother's greatest fear is that their child is going to be caught in a dangerous situation and be harmed to any degree or perhaps not come back to them at all. Most people would agree with this, yet every day I see grown children putting themselves in dangerous and potential life threatening positions. The beautiful weather we have been having has only made it worse. Of course, what I am talking about is...

It's Food... You need it!

When I was growing up, the bakery was a necessary stop for the homemaker. Even in the Lord’s prayer there is mention of “our daily bread”. Bread, rolls, pies, buns and doughnuts were a necessity. You had to eat and you had to go to the bakery. Our small neighborhood bakery had the lines out the door to prove it.

How things have seemed to change. Sugar is demonized, carbs are bad for you and gluten needs to be expunged from the face of the earth. Eggs are no good for you. Oh.. eggs are good for you. Butter is no good for you. Oh…. Butter is good for you. Coffee is no good for you. Oh… coffee helps prevent cancer...
