Trixies Treats ….our story
As far as the history of Trixie’s, I come from a long line of women who love to bake! I learned from watching my mom in the kitchen as I was growing up. She in turn, learned from her mom, my grandmother, who came to this country in 1950 from Austria . It was there where her mother, my great-grandmother, Omi, as I called her, was a chef for wealthy families from the 1930’s through the 1950’s. She worked in the kitchen of the Schlos Paternion (Castle of Paternion) which was the small village in Austria in which she lived. She worked there for the Italian Count Foscari-Widmann from 1948-1954. She was the head chef and was responsible for cooking meals and baking desserts for up to 25 family members with the meals each consisting of several courses. This love for the kitchen and producing delicious food was passed down through generations of women in my family. My grandmother learned watching her mom, and my mom learned watching hers, and I, of course, did the same. I would make desserts to take to parties and my friends would always ask why I am not doing this as my career. And finally, one day I asked myself the same question. I came up with the name, had some help from my friends, Jesse and Patti with the logo and I started making cupcakes and treats as a part time job out of my home. It quickly grew and before I knew it, I was getting up at 4-5 a.m to bake before I was going to work my full time job! It was then that I decided this is something I want to pursue further, and thus, the emergence of Trixies Treats Truck! I hope you enjoy eating my cupcakes and treats as much as I do making them for you!

Vince’s have been serving Cheesesteaks in the Valley for over 25 years. Their goal is to offer the best cheesesteaks and specialty sausages in the greater Lehigh Valley and across Pennsylvania. “You’ll find us at events and venues in Allentown, Bethlehem, Easton, Bloomsburg, Kutztown and more!”…. and we are one of those events!
People ask them what is a Lehigh Valley Cheesesteak?
There are lots of theories about the origins of the Lehigh Valley or Allentown cheesesteak, but all of them include the meshing of strong culinary cultures centered around Italian-American immigrant families and their Pennsylvania-German neighbors, friends, and, eventually, kin. The red sauce is Italian – that’s easy enough – and we support the theory that the pickles are a bit of modest PA-German flair. Stop by their food truck and try one for yourself.
Hildy’s will be offering a wonderful addition to the tournament, bringing back the “Hot Dog”, with all the fixins’. For some more variety there will be two veggie wraps for the more healthy minded. Cheese Doritos for a little snack. Hildy’s has been around Allentown for some time, originally at the Allentown Fairgrounds Farmer’s Market and moving to their ‘new’ location on 38th street in the ‘hood’ — Cetronia.
