  • Craig & Toni Brown invest sincere & honest hard work to create their signature BBQ sauces. Inspired by his mother's home cooking, Craig reflects fondly on the past in hopes that he can share these memories through his own cooking.

    Meet St. Louisans Craig & Toni Brown, co-creators of Millie’s Barbeque Sauces. They bring with them a proven track record of solid sales at local farmers markets as well as the capacity to produce at volume for wholesale distribution in grocery stores and other local markets. 2011 & 2012 National BBQ News “Sauce of Honor” Winners & 3rd Place Winner of the Kansas City American Royal BBQ Sauce Competition in 2012, the Browns invest sincere and honest hard work to create their signature sauces. Inspired by his mother’s home cooking, Craig reflects fondly on the past in hopes that he can share these memories through his own cooking: “Since my childhood, I can remember my mother Millie cooking so many delicious southern dishes using her famous sauce. Millie’s memory still lives on in our family, as she has inspired my wife and I to re-create this one of a kind sweet and tasty barbecue sauce. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!”

    This local gem is available at all Straub’s locations. Try some with your own barbecue, or pair it with our Smoker’s signature meats! See their website for more information, including some great recipes!

  • Julie Cohen of Sauce mentions Straub's for our extensive beverage selection.

    Associate Editor for Sauce Magazine, Julie Cohen, shared a blog post about her three favorite foodie items of the moment. Straub’s got a mention for our extensive beverage selection. See Julie’s comment below:

    “Forgive me, but now that I’m pregnant, I miss red wine and cocktails something fierce. Luckily, Straub’s non-alcoholic beverage offerings have proven to be excellent. From GuS’ not-too-sugary sodas to  an excessively awesome root beer selection, grabbing drinks to bring to a party is almost fun.”

     

    Julie’s right—We do offer a LOT! In addition to GuS, or “Grown Up Soda,” we also offer many varieties of sodas from local Excel Bottling Co. and our Root Beer section alone features approximately 50 different kinds. Feel free to browse our offerings at all four locations!

    See all three of her fave fixations on Sauce Magazine’s Blog!

  • With 2013 around the corner, many people are already planning their life changing goals and resolutions…

    With 2013 around the corner, many people are already planning their life changing goals and resolutions. It’s not surprising that with the obesity statistics being so high that many New Years Resolutions include losing weight. The high count of empty carbs and sugars in a lot of gluten-free foods can mean weight problems for many of the gluten-free eating public. It can be difficult to find good replacements for favorite foods that carry the same benefits in nutrition as the gluten containing counterparts. The blog at glutenfreeworks.com offers many tips and tricks on managing a gluten free diet. No one really enjoys dieting, but it can be even more difficult when your diet is already restricted due to allergies, ethical choices, or medical reasons. Here are some tips for watching your waistline on a gluten-free diet:

    • Stop snacking! Instead, split your meals from three large ones into four or five smaller ones. The end result is that you are full all day and have no need to binge on snack foods.
    • Limit the amount of gluten-free substitutes that you buy. Put your powers to good use by having three days a week with no gluten-free substitutes. Try to look for the foods that use gluten-free whole grains rather than white rice flour.
    • Curb the Carb Cravings. One of the challenges of a gluten-free diet is that it can leave you wanting. It’s hard enough to restrict all of your eating, who really wants to fight those cravings to restrict their diet even more? Luckily for us, the L.A. Gluten Free Examiner has supplied a great article about curbing those carb cravings. Once that’s under control your will power will once again reign supreme.
    • Eat a healthy breakfast every day. Try a hot cereal like Quinoa Flakes or Cream of Rice Cereal. Another great breakfast is a smoothie made with coconut flour, fruit and yogurt.
    • Put your label reading to good use. While you are scanning to find out if what you are eating is gluten-free, keep an eye out for sugar and preservatives as well.
    • Focus on eating mostly whole foods. This includes meat, fruit, vegetables or beans. This can also help you save on the grocery budget and start saving for smaller clothes!
    • Make Friends with Your Sweet Tooth. We all know what happens when the sweet tooth is denied for too long. It takes over, possession-style and destroys everything you’ve worked hard to do. Make friends with your sweet tooth by offering some better options: keep sweet treats on hand to replace gluten-free substitutes that might work against you. Frozen bananas are super sweet and make a great dessert.
    • Get plenty of sleep. The body, gluten-free or otherwise, functions better when it is well rested. This also includes improved metabolism and digestion.
    • Exercise! There is no change in diet that will help you lose weight and keep it off without adding exercise.

    No matter what your weight loss goals are for the new year, these suggestions should help get you started on the path to success.

  • "The Straub’s gift basket is amazing! I didn’t realize there was a bottle of Hess Select Chardonnay included. That is my favorite Chardonnay! I gave Andy the night off from cooking and I made the spaghetti with the Rigazzi’s sauce, and it was a winner. I will not share with you how many Bissinger chocolates I have eaten, but I will tell you that the Christmas tree scented candle is exactly what my house needs. It smells wonderful."
