Bruxie Introduces the Bold Blend!

Bruxie Introduces the Bold Blend!
By Erin

Looking for a morning pick me up to get your day going? Most mornings I need a good cup of joe to help wake myself up and to get going. This is where Bruxie comes in, but honestly I could have Bruxie for breakfast, lunch and dinner! ūüėČ ¬†Earlier this week I was invited to come in and try out Bruxie’s new¬†custom crafted coffee, The BOLD Blend! I have been a long time fan of Bruxie ever since I saw friends post some mouthwatering photos of the offerings here on their Facebook pages back in 2010. I was determined to go try this place out after that and planned a meet-up for brunch at the Orange location with a local meet-up group that I am an assistant organizer for. I’ve been hooked ever since! Now that they have this amazing Bold Blend Coffee to compliment the waffle sandwiches, I will be even more tempted to go here!

Bruxie ¬†now offers a new locally roasted proprietary blend of 100% Fair Trade Coffee lovingly called “The Bold Blend.” The idea is to offer folks a coffee experience that would be bold and complex enough to stand up to and complement the flavors on the Bruxie menu. After trying it myself, I would have to say they have succeeded! ūüôā

Pictured with the Bold Blend here is the Green Eggs & Ham, Lemon Cream & Berries, and Smoked Salmon Lox & Dill Cream Cheese. All are heavenly and will leave you craving more. I always am!

‚ÄúFrom the very first sip, guests will find a pleasant linger on the palate that will evolve into a combination of savory, sweet, and even floral nuances.‚ÄĚ

Don’t forget to partner up your coffee with your favorite Bruxie Breakfast Sandwich! ūüėȬ† Continue reading »

Knott’s Berry Farm For the Cure

Knott’s Berry Farm For the Cure

By Erin

Recently you may have noticed that I had a giveaway in honor of Knott’s Berry Farm’s Partnership with Susan G. Komen for the months of February and March to help ¬†raise funds for breast cancer research. Here are some pictures from the kick-off event that was put on to get the fundraiser going. You can see all the pink accents that have been added to the park in honor of all ¬†those fighting breast cancer, the survivors, and those who lost the fight. It’s partnerships like this that will help us find the cure to this horrible thing called cancer that much faster.
