Taste This! – Holm Made Toffee

This week’s edition of Taste This, Donna Britt takes us to a local artisan confectioner. It was a very sweet trip for Donna Britt this week as she heads to Bend’s Holm Made Toffee. Their recipe for this delicious treat has been in the family for more than twenty-five years

Thanks to Newport Avenue Market for giving us the resources to take weekly culinary adventures. Life is short. Eat good food!

Origin Story: Dyad Adornment Co.

Allison Roecker joins us for our weekly Origin Story segment where we meet Central Oregonians who turn their passion into a profession.

Selling plants and handmade jewelry out of an Airstream trailer outside of Spoken Moto might sound like an unconventional business model, but one Bend woman, Courtney Willis, is making it work and we guarantee you’ll want to rush over there to check it out!

The Dyad Adornment truck is open Tuesday through Saturday right outside of Spoken Moto next to the Box Factory in Bend. You can follow her on Instagram at @dyadadornmentco, and although she doesn’t have all of her inventory on her website, you can find a selection at dyadadornmentco.com.

Origin Story: Wax & Wane

Central Oregon Daily’s Allison Roecker has this week’s Origin Story where she introduces us to people who turn their passion into a profession. This week we meet the owner of Wax & Wane Candles.

Inspiration can be found everywhere and for Central Oregon native, Hannah Turner, she found her inspiration in her childhood memories by recreating the smells of the high desert.

Although Wax & Wane candles aren’t in Bend stores quite yet, you can find them on Hannah’s Etsy shop and at wwcandles.com. For more information and really pretty pictures, you can follow Wax & Wane on Instagram at @waxandwanecandles and Facebook.

Origin Story: Bushel and a Peck Organic Skincare

In this week’s Origin Story, Allison Roecker introduces us to Aimee Berg of Bushel and a Peck Organic Skincare.

Central Oregon’s high desert climate can get pretty dry. Aimee Berg saw this problem and created an all natural and organic solution that will have you tossing your lip balm collection in the garbage.

You can find Bushel and a Peck products at many different locations in Central Oregon including Newport Avenue Market, Wren and Wild and Sole Footbar. You can also find products on Aimee’s website at bushelandapeck.co.

Every Sunday on Central Oregon Daily’s new feature, Origin Story, Allison Roecker introduces us to a passionate person who is making their dreams come true. 

Supper Club: Innovation Day at OSU-Cascades
