This past Friday was a rainy day. We had our regular playdate at Prospect Lefferts Gardens in the morning and Yves was home from work by the time we got back. He worked late the night before so left early on Friday. Since he was home, i decided to try this bagel recipe. I never did any sort of bread baking or kneading or anything like that. It’s not very hard but you just need some patience because you have to knead and then wait, form the bagels and then wait, blah blah blah. I have to tell you, they were just ok. Not bad for the first time but just ok. They were crisp on the outside but too doughy for my tastes on the inside. I prefer a more lighter inside. I’ll have to research some more recipes. Of course, Sienna ate it up!

Taking them out of the water to dry.
Out of the oven.
