Welcome! Thank you so much for visiting my blog. I’m Becky and I live in Roanoke, Virginia. I love all things sparkly including champagne, jewelry and cowgirl boots. I came up with the name “Bubblybee” by combining Bubbly (champagne!) and my initials BEE.
This photo of me relaxing in my living room was taken by photographer extraordinaire Annemie Tonken, Megapixie Photography. https://megapixie.com/
My motto is “Don’t wait to celebrate! Pop the cork now!” I personally taste each bubbly that I write about…life is good! I write my blog to help you take the mystery out of purchasing a bottle of bubbly. If you are looking for a inexpensive Cava to drink on a lazy sunny afternoon at the lake you will find it on my blog. You will also find recommendations for nice sparkling wines at a decent price to serve at a graduation or wedding. If you are planning to spend big bucks for fabulous champagne to serve on your wedding anniversary you will find it on my blog.
Pairing champagne and food is fabulous fun. I practically
live in my kitchen, cooking up delicious recipes to serve with bubbly. My
husband is the best taste tester. He says that whenever he hears me knocking
around pots and pans in the kitchen then he knows that something yummy is about
to appear in front of him.
I earned my BS in Food Service and 10 years later I went back to university to complete my MBA. My career was in healthcare food service management. After a 30 year career I decided to live my passion – creating recipes and tasting champagne! Along the way I won numerous recipe contests. Perhaps my most impressive win was the Colavita “Better Than Butter” contest in 2001. The contest challenged us to make something with olive oil that we normally make with butter. I made country ham biscuits which were delightfully delicious. The grand prize was a trip for two to Italy…one of the highlights of the trip was when we met the Colavita brothers.
I also love cats and have four rescued fur babies. Please visit my instagram to see photos of these precocious and adorable kitties: bubblybeeboop (lots of my recipe photos too!)
