Meet Britny Ortega!


Meet Britny, this month’s featured baker. She’s been a fantastic team member for over a year and we’re so happy to have her on our bread crew at the bakery. Britny has introduced many fabulous items into our LJB repertoire including the March BREAD of the MONTH: Irish Soda Bread.

Meet Britny!

Q: What is your best at-home baking tip?
A: Do some research, use fresh ingredients and experiment! Making bread at home can be inexpensive, delicious and easier than you think. (But, don’t forget, Lovejoy’s bread is pretty magical).

Q: What time do you wake up?
A: I wake up anywhere between 6:30 – 8:30am. That gives me plenty of time to wake up, eat breakfast and play with my cat before work at noon.

Q: Best music to bake bread to?
A: Spice Girls radio on Pandora! Everyone gets pumped up. Latin workout radio is also really good!

Q: Favorite type of food or restaurant?
A: Mexican food over everything! Burritos are my jam. Cheap, portable and VERY delicious

Q: If you were a bread, what would you be and why?
A: I would be a panettone. I’m high maintenance, delicate and fragile.

Thank you Britny! You brighten our days with your smiling face and positive attitude. Thanks for being such a great addition to our team.
Have a great week.
