It’s taken me a long time to settle down and write this blog post so that I wouldn’t sound like a lunatic. I’ve since come to terms with how to address the situation that got me so riled up, and … Continue reading
Jake and I leave for Vegas tomorrow. Our itinerary is set, bags are packed, and we made two rehearsal pizzas tonight to test our final product that we’ll be entering in the competition. They were fantastic! Our schedule is very … Continue reading
This past weekend, Baker City hosted the Oregon State 1A high school basketball championships. Every hotel room was booked, and there were more than four cars deep at a red light. That’s Baker City traffic for you. It also was … Continue reading
The night crew showed up, and I realized that I was the only one not holy… errrrr… hole-y. I swear. I pay them enough to buy all of the fabric. Maybe they’re just taking their jeans to asphalt and rubbing … Continue reading

We had a health inspection again. They always seem to show up right in the middle of lunch, or worse, right after we’ve had a rush. Imagine preparing meals for 50+ people in an hour, most of which entail the … Continue reading
At one point, we had three bambinos in the Paizano’s oven. Freebird, one of our front gals, moved to California when her husband got a new job. We miss her and her preggo belly. James, one of our cooks, has … Continue reading
Bombers are difficult to sell at our restaurant, but I can’t *not* buy them. We don’t have a store like Whole Foods or the Boise Food Co-op which carry dozens upon dozens of exotic and tasty brews. And I like … Continue reading
Front gal was irritated when I got to work. She hurumphed and pfffffd and stomped around in the kitchen, muttering about one of her earlier customers. He was upset because we don’t have fries. He wanted a hamburger, and when … Continue reading
