parisian bagels

in an effort to entertain myself in a way that doesn't include shopping or browsing on the internet, i have turned to baking and reading. do you remember what you did without the internet? i don't. and that bothers me.

yesterday i made granola. today it was bagels. i am quite impressed with myself. i am not skilled in the kitchen, but i pulled off home-made bagels from scratch. they are a bit lumpy looking and most of the holes closed up, but they are bagels!

i used this recipe for "parisian bagels". i'm not sure what makes them parisian, but they are good. next i want to make jam, yogurt, soup, pumpkin pie, and butter.

Those look yummy Steph! I want to make jam too! Strawberry jam, but I missed the u-pick time frame to get the good stuff. I also wanted to try mango jam, but the mangoes looked like crap this year. Oh well...next year, I guess!

Oh, if you come across any good soup recipes, send them my way! I'm always on the hunt for yummy soups. Just wish I was talented enough in the kitchen to be able to throw anything in a pot and have it come out tasting good.

Oh I wish I could taste one, they look so tasty! What have you been reading lately? Any recommendations?

if you're looking for a good pumpkin pie recipe, I'd be happy to share my great-grandmother's Depression-Era recipe. It's my favorite, and a bit different from other pumpkin pies I've had - fewer calories, more spices. Drop me a line if you're interested!
