TWD: Bagels

Our host this week is Heather at Heather’s Bytes.  Well, these bagels were fun to make.  I have never made bagels before, and never knew you had to boil them.  My first batch I made the bagels too big (the hole in the center), so once baked they didn’t look right.  But the second time around I corrected that and they turned out well.  I topped them with onion, garlic, and salt since that is what my hubby likes.  That being said, I probably won’t make them again.  We don’t eat bagels very often, so we will probably just purchase the few we eat.

TWD: CRANBERRY WALNUT PUMPKIN LOAVES

The host this week is Rebecca at This Bountiful Backyard.  First off, I must say I was epecting this to be a quick bread recipe.  What a surprise to find that it was a yeast bread and needed to rise overnight.  That being said, it wasn’t too labor intensive despite this.  I couldn’t find fresh or frozen cranberries just yet, so I used dried cranberries.  Also, I had pecans on hand so used those instead of the walnuts.  So I guess you could say I made “craisin pecan pumpkin loaves.”  I didn’t have the smaller loaf pans, so I used a larger size also.  Personally, this wasn’t my favorite.  I had been so excited to make it since I just love pumpkin, but I didn’t find it to have much pumpkin flavor.  It is good enjoyed as I would enjoy cinnamon raisin bread (toasted with butter), just wasn’t the intense pumpkin I was looking for.
