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.
