I made bagels today. That's right - made from scratch, cooked at home, bagels! And they were delicious! Beyond delicious. It was a battle to eat just one. I thought I loved bagels before, but man - it's a new kind of love. Usually when I make something from scratch I find it to be comparable with the store version - but not bagels. I think we'll be a homemade bagel family from now on. Which suits us fine since some certain little girls think the morning is incomplete without bagels and at $4 for 6 bagels, their mornings are often incomplete.
Here's the recipe for bagels so that you too can enjoy the delicious aroma wafting throughout your house, and delight in biting into a fresh, hot bagel. You'll thank me later. (And honestly the hardest part was trying to get them all uniform in shape and size.)
