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).
