    Most delicious bagels my family and I have ever had! What a special treat. We shared them with our neighbors from St. Louis and they were so appreciative. Can’t wait to try the breads. We will definitely order more to enjoy with our out of town guests.

    Lydia, you just delivered our bagels, and they are scrumptious–crunchy on the outside and oh so soft on the inside. The aroma is amazing!!!

    Jake and I are sitting at our home (we got married a month ago) in Littleton, CO working on some homework for the Seminary before leaving to do some teaching…and it’s a rainy day! We find ourselves wishing we were back in Greenville and could call upon your bagel-making skills! Would have been oh sooo perfect this morning. 🙂 Hope you and the baking are doing well!
