Well, everyone must be taking a break for the summer, or else they don't want to fire up a hot oven.
As the Kitchen of the Month for July, I challenged the Babes and Buddies to try their hand at bialys, a cousin of the bagel.
I had one taker: Shirley, from Flourish.en Test Kitchen. She was the only brave soul. And, her bialys exploded just like mine! Success!
Please stop by and read Shirley's account of her experience and see her gorgeous photos.
When the weather cools down, I hope you, dear reader, will also give bialys a try.
