Sometimes all we need is a good ol' bagel and cream cheese. We partnered up with Celiac Chef, Melissa Bess Reed, to whip up an easy (not to mention delicious) cream cheese recipe that pairs well with EVERYTHING! #punpossiblyintended πŸ˜‰


Melissa is a Personal Chef based out of Ventura, California. She is also a Sous Chef at award winning fine dining establishment, La Dolce Vita Ristorante, in Oxnard California. Melissa, like us, is on a mission to help people live happy and healthy lifestyles with delicious food!

Head on over to Melissa's page and get your hands on her latest cream cheese recipe! From sweet to savory, it's one that can be tailored to your tastebuds and tailored to your bagel's flavor portfolio. Because... well, an everything schmear doesn't always pair well with a cinnamon raisin bagel (unless that floats your boat. Totally cool πŸ˜‹), but a strawberry schmear does!

Thank you, Melissa, for the SWEET post! So glad our bagels could get some CALIFORNIA love!
