I bought cream cheese at the store the other day because I had vague ambitions of baking a carrot cake. I never quite got around to the cake making, so the next logical place for cream cheese was bagels. I posted my friend Ana’s bagel recipe here about a year ago, but somehow, I’d forgotten about it ever since. Two days ago, I pulled out again, and now I might be at risk of becoming “The Crazy Bagel Lady”. The recipe is SO easy, SO good, and highly adaptable. Yesterday’s bagels had an added cupful of cacao nib granola, and today’s flavor was chunky garlic-porcini. Tomorrow: Cranberry-walnut? Dried tomato-rosemary? Parmesan-sweet pepper? A few of each? The sky really is the limit.
Other than obsessive bagel baking, we’ve been lazing around on spring break. It’s really nice to have some unscheduled time even if I’m not using that time all that productively. Happy spring, friends!
