This recipe comes from our beloved Chef Todd Leonard. It’s a no fuss, take the easy way out, make it while you’re out camping kind of deliciousness.
We are lucky enough to have a Dutch Oven expert in our store. From the first time we tried his Baked Beans, we knew we needed to trust this man and his dutch oven cooking. Today we share with you his tried and true baked bean recipe. Easily alterable, leave out the meat, add more meat, or a couple more cans of beans to make it stretch a little farther.
The skill of cooking hard boiled eggs is essential to your cooking repertoire. Especially around Easter time! Eggs are a powerpacked food source (high in protein, low in carbohydrates, full of nutrients!) and hard boiling them makes them fast, easy additions to any snack or meal. But searching the food world for the correct method is completely confusing.
Candy molds are a fun and easy way to make homemade goodies. If you’re looking for a gift for friends or neighbors, molding chocolate and candy is an easy way to share a little love.
In our store, an entire aisle is devoted to displaying the various forms of the candy mold. They are fun and quirky, elegant and decadent, silly and sweet. And we think you should use them.
They can be used in many applications, including food, but also arts and crafts. We typically like to fill them with chocolate, but mostly we just love chocolate. They candy mold really has a lot to offer to the professional and the amateur alike. Let us share a few basics with you.

We are always looking for a fun way to share our love during the Holiday season. Giving thought presents to our friends and neighbors help to spread Christmas cheer.
But these gifts are also great for sharing. Not only are they some of our favorite tools to use, they are also quickly turned into a gift with a cute tag and a little ribbon. Your friends and family will be grateful to receive something they can use all year round!
Here is a collection of our 4 favorite (less-than-a-dollar) gifts… in no particular order!
I’m guessing you are not surprised that Thanksgiving is a favorite holiday at Gygi. Food is a big deal for us and you can be sure we will be participating as much as possible. From our annual Pie Preparation Night, to our delicious traditional meal, we have tested and tried just about every kitchen tool you’ll need to be prepared for the big day.
Stuffing is the iconic partner to the Turkey for Thanksgiving dinner. This stuffing really accentuates the warm flavors of fall and uses all the right herbs to make you feel back in Grandma’s kitchen. Fresh rosemary, thyme, sage and parsley. But we’ve mixed it up with large pieces of sausage, crsipy pieces of bread, and of course the perfect amount of smokey flavor from our favorite Traeger Grill.
Around here we like to think that Turkey is a protein we can enjoy all year long. And when you simplify the whole process by cooking just a turkey breast, it takes all the pain and effort away from a whole turkey, and you’ll end up with a perfectly moist, tender, delicious piece of meat.
Okay, confession, we definitely took the easy way out here and smoked a purchased pie. There are a million things to do for Thanksgiving, and making our pies is usually a tradition we love and look forward to every year. But sometimes ease and convenience wins over traditions.
