I found this recipe on the internet when I was looking for a healtier alternative to store bought bagels.

This is a good substitute for those who love bagels but hate all the calories and the sodium in the store bought ones. The bagels aren't as sweet as the ones in the store, but I'm sure you could add a bit more sugar to the dough if you wanted to make them sweeter.

The recipe is fairly easy to make. The first time I made it I just cut the recipe in half (mainly because I didn't think my family would eat all 30 bagels before they turned).

You can also adjust the recipe to include toppings or add-ins to customize your bagel (not included in the nutritional information calculation). Some suggestions would be sesame seeds (dip into sesame seeds once the egg yolk wash is on the bagel), cinnamon & raisins, blueberry, or anything and everything you'd like to put in.

Enjoy! =)

A favorite breakfast food with my kids. Lower in calories than regular pancakes, and more filling because of all the eggs. Serve with German Pancake Syrup (I've added this too)

You've decided to make some hummus or goddess dressing, only to find you're out of tahini. Rats!
Making your own tahini is very easy. You control the oil and ingredients. Just keep sesame seeds in your freezer, and you'll be good to go at a moment's notice.

Very Good 4.0/5

A healthy and filling middle eastern dip! Eat it as an appetizer or snack with some pita. Why buy your hummus ready made from the store, when you can make it yourself?

Pumpkin Soup w peanut butter Becca's Way
Very Good 4.7/5
(6 ratings)

This is a simple recipe & a family pleaser & Low calorie. Nothing better than a great smelling soup simmering on the stove in the fall & winter days. This is a very good way to see the family gets their vitimans. When I first made this I didn't really know what to expect, so I made another meal as a back up incae the kids didn't like it.. Well to our surprise it was a hit and the whole pot was gone that night and the back up meal was saved for another day :)
