Butter has really received a bad rap, which's most likely due to its link to obesity and heart disease, plus Marlon Brando's propensity to use it to dance while on European vacations or something. For guy-centered baked goods that don't shy away from butter… or sugar… or chocolate... check out Blue Collar Baking.
Just opened in Downtown PDX, Blue Collar's the endeavor of a guy who
owns a gajillion Jeff Foxworthy DVDs learned the art from his mom and plied the trade from a home catering kitchen, before building a cafe/bakery duded-out with a vintage dome-top lunchpail and Thermos collection, which were clearly picked out by Jerks. Daily baked sweets made to comfort "stressed-out cube farm workers" include cookies like the Lug Nut sporting crushed pecans & toffee, and the super crunchy peanut butter Jackhammer loaded w/ crushed nuts, plus scones and "cupcake killing", personal-sized bundt cakes in deco designs, such as a red velvet number called the Daredevil -- hopefully eating too many won't make you go blind... but will give you impressive acrobatic abilities/the unique opportunity to hang out with fat Jon Favreau. Beyond sweets, there’s micro-roasted Water Avenue coffee and housemade granola, which should hold you over until it’s time for a grilled sando w/ turkey or ham, pesto, and roasted red peppers, who are frankly sick of Jeffrey Ross poking fun of their collectivist dogma.
Because sometimes you just can't leave that cube farm that’s stressin’ you, man, Blue Collar is happy to deliver to your downtown hacienda or office for a $5 fee, and also create gift boxes full of delicious cookies which, much like Brando, will go directly to your rear.
