I made BAGELS!!!


Thanks to the encouragement of my friend Christine I took the time and mustered up the courage to attempt something that has been intimidating me for a very long time. I milled some hard red grain, found the PERFECT recipe and got started yesterday. I finished them off this morning for breakfast (finished as in cooked not ate!!! LOL) They are 100% whole wheat and low in salt and sugar. I made two dozen and only altered the recipe enough to add some cinnamon and raisins. The were absolutely scrumptious and very easy to make - they just take a little time and I always say that anything worth it takes time. They are TOTALLY WORTH IT!!!!! I think my next batch will be a local favorite... green chili bagels!!!

    Today I tackled scones. OH BABY! Let them be your next mountain to climb. It's a small one, and it's covered in nummy powdered sugar.
