One of my daily reads is Food Coma, a blog that combines food and fashion. Yesss! So that’s where I found a recipe to make your own bagels. I was beside myself. Bagels are actually my favorite food. Seriously. I could eat them all day and all night. Butter, cream cheese… BOTH. I’m crazy like that.
On Sunday I decided to give it a try. I feel I should point out that I have tried and failed at making bread several times. I’ve wound up with weird, lumpy, often under-cooked blobs of un-edible goop. I felt very defeated in the bread realm. So let’s celebrate my courage here. I’m really brave.
I went back and forth between Food Coma and Sophisticated Gourmet‘s versions of the recipe. Both are clear and easy to understand. I’m happy to report that I achieved bagels!!! (I made plain. Baby steps…)
A bit of butter and a tall glass of ICED TEA (not beer).
I put the rest in the freezer to enjoy for breakfast this week! Hooray for accomplishment!!
