Everything Bagels! Gotta love ’em! And now, for my Destination Cooking Challenge, I not only loved ’em, but I baked them too!
I got the idea of baking bagels for this challenge when my AncestryDNA® results arrived. I was sure that I would find a fascinating history with a mix of ancient kings, conquerors, and philosophers. All that might be there, but it wasn’t obvious from the results. According to AncestryDNA® I’m 100% central and eastern European Jewish. I previously didn’t think anyone was 100% of anything. But there you go! Apparently all of my lineage traces back to Poland, Lithuania, and the surrounding area.
What better way to tackle the Destination Cooking challenge but to prepare a typical European Jewish dish? The one problem is that I’m not a big fan of most of that stuff. The one exception? Bagels. I especially love everything bagels.
Check out the video to see how I did. Hint: Nailed it! Help me win by clicking through to YouTube (here) and clicking the “like” button (it looks like a thumbs-up).
