About Kari Lee's Specialties

In 1993, as a busy mom of two little girls, Kari Lee Beutell combined her passion for baking with her drive to provide real, homemade food for her family. In the simple desire to spend time at home while doing what she loved most, the roots of Kari Lee's Specialties was born. "I started making big batches of baking mixes for myself as a shortcut for cooking homemade meals. High quality, real food for my own family was always important to me. It has always been about great taste, simplifying, and getting back-to-basics. Soon my friends and family started asking for my mixes. I jumped! My sweet little baking mix business began!" -Kari Lee Beutell Kari Lee's Specialties has had the pleasure of collaborating with many fine food retailers such as Cracker Barrel, Williams-Sonoma, Dean & Deluca, Nordic Ware, Marshall Fields, Sally Foster Fundraiser, and countless other orchards, grocery and gift shops across the country. We value our customers and have a long history of repeat, happy customers to show for it! Today, Kari Lee's is proudly celebrating over 25 years in business! Kari Lee is still at the helm and enjoying the input and help from her two grown daughters, Dani and Paige. In continued efforts to share our love of home cooking, Kari Lee's donates a portion of profits to local food shelves to help feed hungry families in Minnesota. Kari Lee's is...Homemade With A Little Help! Where we believe fond memories are in the baking and making!
