Join me on my baking journey!

I love bagels – the crisp outside, the nice chewy center. These weren’t difficult but they were time consuming.

Unfortunately, I think my oven is cooking too hot and I need to adjust it so these were over done a bit, but they were still tasty.

I made them plain since that’s what that kids like but I think I will try these again with some variation.



Pumpkin Cranberry Bread

I was so excited to make this! I love everything pumpkin. I don’t think I was able to let this rise quite enough on the first rise since it was late and I was tired, but it came out great. I knew it was a yeast bread so wouldn’t quite be like the pumpkin bread I am used to. But the whole family loved it sliced toasted and with some butter for breakfast, or a late night snack. I have a small loaf left in the freezer that I can’t wait to have!
