Before ovens, the frozen-food market catered primarily to polar bears and people immune to brain freeze. Indulge in toasty inventions with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of bake-at-home goods at U-Bake in Loves Park.
U-Bake transforms busy folks into kitchen virtuosos with ready-to-bake breads, cookies, potpies, and more. Newfound bakers can roll out of bed and into breakfast with a fresh cinnamon roll or break up afternoon doldrums with more than 50 varieties of cookie dough, from the bestselling cranberry-walnut white chip to the classic sugar cookie ($4.99), perfect for sculptures and quick attire for white-tie events. A variety of frozen bread dough, pizza crusts, and sweet and savory pies ($4.99+) fill stomachs, placate palates, and require nothing more than an oven and a freezer or igloo. Those with wheat sensitivities or intolerances can also nab a variety of gluten-free products, such as bread, waffles, tarts, pies, and pastas.
It can be rough feeding a family, with parents figuring out how to find time to prepare healthy, delicious meals and still complete their long, grueling work schedules. That’s why Shane and Angie Huber at U-Bake decided to help their clients hurry dinner to the table by specializing in prepared, take-and-bake dinners and meal supplies. This allows their regular shoppers to easily and efficiently assemble entire meals with only an oven, a stovetop, or a third and final genie wish.
Though they’re known for their housemade dough, including pizza dough and more than 50 types of cookie dough, they also sling pastries, dry and frozen soups, and jellies and spreads to enhance any main course. They help families cope with dietary restrictions without compromising taste by whipping up a variety of gluten-free items, and their website promotes creative culinary pursuits by featuring signature recipes that only require ingredients you already have in your kitchen.
