Bagel Lovin'

Hi there,

I have a confession to make.....I have an overwhelming addiction to bagels.  Simply put, I adore them.  Their roundness, their breadness (I don't think that's a word), their yumminess (made that one up to) and the variety of bagels available.  I guess what I am saying is I could probably eat one every day and still wake up the next morning wondering if there are any bagels available in the world.

A few days ago, we decided to dive into the world of bagel making.  I was concerned that the actual creation of a bagel would be a time consuming task and really difficult.  I was oh so pleasantly surprised when I did a quick search of bagel recipes online.  It's really not that hard. I mean a little time consuming, but that is mainly just the dough part.  There are the typical bread type steps involved such as letting the dough rise and then shaping it and letting it rise again.  In the end, we made some awesome onion and garlic bagels and cinnamon and sugar bagels and a couple of plain bagels.  I just wanted to share some pictures from this great bagel making experience.  If you have ever wanted to make them I say go for it.  You won't regret it!

I love this mixer...we borrowed it...we confiscated it...we are never returning it.

You can't accomplish much without a beautiful assistant. This Arabelle, she's beautiful.

And voila, the finished product.  Yummy!!

And that is that....now get out there and make some bagels!
