Yom Ha’Shoah

April 19, 2017

This week, we commemorate Yom Ha’Shoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day. As many of you know, the centuries-old history of Three Brothers Bakery runs through the Holocaust, where Sigmund, Max and Sol – along with their sister Janie – were among the lucky ones to escape the atrocities of the concentration camps. We’ve told their history several times on the blog, and you can read them by following the links below. Though […]

April Showers!

April 5, 2017

As the saying goes, April showers bring May flowers. But I also hope they bring Three Brothers Bakery’s favorite kind of showers: wedding, baby, bridal and more! I’ve been to plenty of showers myself. I was lucky enough to receive an entertainment shower before my wedding, where I received plentiful amounts of gifts for all number of occasions from kitchen equipment to honeymoon attire. I have also gone to a […]

Purim 2017

March 6, 2017

Happy Purim! On the evening of Purim, Jews go to the synagogue, where the rabbi shares the story of Esther, who stood up to Haman and helped the Jewish people escape his tyranny. This commemoration leads into the Purim schpeil, a community play acting out the Megillah (story of Esther). Some of my favorite Purim memories include Harvey Gibb dressing up as Queen Esther – and, of course, the infamous […]

Blackberry Pie

Pi Day 2017

March 3, 2017

Last year, we tried something new to celebrate Pi Day – 3.14, or March 14 – a contest to win pecan pie. Anyone who recited 10 digits would win a slice of pecan pie, and those who could recite 25 digits (75 for 2017) won a whole pecan pie. Well, little did we know, but so many smart school children were practicing for two whole weeks to learn all the […]

5 Years at our Memorial Bakery

February 22, 2017

This month, we are celebrating five years of business at our Memorial location. Someone described the time as half a decade, and I could only say in response – wow! Our growth happened because of Hurricane Ike – talk about making lemonade out of lemons. It was a line in the sand that Three Brothers Bakery had survived the storm and was moving on to a new chapter. While rebuilding, […]

Valentine’s Day 2017

February 12, 2017

Love is in the air, or maybe it’s the sugar from all the Valentine’s Day treats we’re making at Three Brothers Bakery! This special time of year has arrived again when everyone needs to get a sweet something for the special person in their life to show their love. I keep hoping someone will get engaged at the bakery again like one couple did in 2014. IMG_4936.MOV (1) Believe it […]

Mardi Gras 2017

January 26, 2017

Laissez les bon temps rouler! It’s already time for the first holiday season of 2017 here at the bakery – Mardi Gras season! It kicks off every year on January 6, but the length of the season varies on the date of Fat Tuesday. This year, we are lucky to have a long Mardi Gras season since Fat Tuesday does not fall until February 28. We used to make our […]

Welcome to 2017!

January 12, 2017

Hello again! After taking a hiatus from writing the Three Brothers Bakery blog, I, Janice, am back behind the keyboard to write. I look forward to sharing many more of my personal stories and experiences once more here on this site. This feels like an appropriate way to kick off the year because 2016 was not a particularly fun one for us, like I suspect it might not have been […]

Christmas Hanukkah

Chrismukkah

December 19, 2016

Three years ago, you may remember the serendipitous occurrence known as Thanksgivukkah when the holidays of Thanksgiving and the beginning of Hanukkah happened to fall on the same day. (That was a once-in-70,000 years’ overlap, so don’t count on another one of such celebrations in your lifetime.) But don’t fret too much because 2016 gives us another fun holiday crossover! This year, say hello to Chrismukkah: the first night of […]

The Business Behind the Bakery

December 16, 2016

After 67 years serving the Houston community, Three Brothers Bakery continues to grow thanks to the tremendous support of our friends and neighbors. We have loved sharing so many memories with you all and look forward to many more. One joy that you might not see – but the effects of which are always felt – is when we have the opportunity to represent the bakery at conferences across the […]
