Bageleater69, I'm not sure that I've found anywhere that really satisfies! The Lighthouse out on Indian Rocks Beach has pretty good veggie cream cheese, but I'm open to suggestions if anyone has a good pick!
And one more question from me before we switch gears: Now that we've picked your brain on cooking, what about serving and storing homemade bagels? Any suggestions?
Could not agree more, Brian!
What are some of the tips you picked up now that you've made them a few times, Michelle?
In the meantime, Michelle, what's the biggest misconception when it comes to bagel-making? It seems pretty difficult, from what I gather?
I'm curious to hear if anyone has any go-to spots for bagels, too! Any favorites, #CookClub?
That makes sense, and I think it's something a lot of people identify with, maybe they want to cook more with better ingredients, but don't know where to begin. Which brings us to the topic at hand, BAGELS! Can you tell us about your first time making bagels and why you did it?
Hooray! To kick things off, I wanted to ask you a little more about your great editor's note from last week. I love this quote from you: "Striving to cook most of my food from scratch has brought me closer to what I eat." Can you tell us about how you got started cooking from scratch, using real ingredients?
Hi, everyone! Welcome to today's #CookClub! Today we're talking with Michelle Stark, food editor! Hi, Michelle!
