Welcome to BagelBees. I am a midwestern native that grew up in Iowa and youngest of five siblings. I discovered my love for baking when I was around 10 years old and continued to teach myself everything I know. I started with cookies and realized how bad they were and strived to continue to make them perfect. It all went from there. I experimented with spices in my ramen noodles and over the years I found what went with what and how to use them correctly. By the time I was out of the house I was confident to fend for myself. I was married for ten years to an army soldier and throughout that time I was always feeding the soldiers and creating new and exciting dishes. Throughout their Iraq deployments I would send monthly care packages of baked goods and it was something they always looked forward to. It gave me purpose and helped me realize the bigger picture and found something I was really good at. By 2012 I joined the navy as a construction mechanic in the Seabees and continued my love for baking. I would always bring in baked goods and try them out on my guys in the shop. I soon became the shop mom. Even deployed to the desert, I still found a way to bake and feed my troops. Baking became my stress reliever and I always looked forward to that look of fulfillment and satisfaction when that smile started across their face.
A few years ago a friend came to me and asked me to make bagels. Being from Iowa, I know about bagels. I researched recipes, watched YouTube videos and experimented for months. I came across a recipe that I liked and had to change it up to make it my own. I have now created over 30 different bagel flavors that I am anxious to share with the community. I have many seasonal flavors that will be introduced throughout the first year so stay tuned everyday to see what's new!
