I Love Bagels

They are so yummy.

Before I made my own bagels, I felt intimidated by the recipe.  Years later, I can make them with my eyes closed.

And this past weekend I made a nice big batch.

Eight everything, five salt, and three chili flake.  Felt damn good to be in my own kitchen again.  I love making things.

  2. I'm happy to hear it. Challenge is good, but it's also good to be able to run on autopilot occasionally, let the ability take over.

    If there are any left over, and a choice, I'll take one with everything...

  4. Gloria: Thank you - we're having leftover bagels with supper tonight.

    Porky: I agree with you on that. And we have plenty, so I'll teleport you some everything, right now.

    Melanie: One day I'll write out all the steps. It's quite fun to make them. And even stuff them with meat and cheeses.

    Thanks for dropping by.

  16. mshatch: Don't like to cook????

    Lori: Nothing like bread from my own kitchen. Especially after putting in so many hours at the restaurant.

    There's no place like home.

  17. Bagels being SPECIAL, well, home-made bagels are therefore SPECIAL SPECIAL. Those at your table are lucky ducks. :)

  19. I've never been brave enough to attempt making these myself. And you can't beat a fresh bagel. Storebought can't compete. I'd love to try the chili flakes bagels. mmmmmm yummmy!

    Daisey: Good question.

    Anne: Have a safe trip to Ireland. Hope you take lots of pictures.

    The chili flake once were good. I sliced them into long chip-like shapes and had them with tea.

    Rayolla: They were. Hey, I loved your moving photo thing. Well done, Sir.
