Today I’m excited to share a guest post with you from Maggie, author of She Let Them Eat Cake. She started chatting with me on Twitter and we quickly became friends. Maggie is warm, caring, and talented beyond measure.
I always look forward to seeing what Maggie has whipped up and today is no exception. Bagels. My first bagel making experience was in Fundamentals of Baking and it wasn’t easy to make them look good – and those were made with wheat. I’m sure you’ll agree that Maggie’s bagles sans gluten, dairy, and eggs are a work of art.

I’ve been participating in Amy’s Slightly Indulgent Tuesday’s for a few months now. In fact I base my blogging schedule around it because I admire Amy so much and love the chance to connect with Amy and her readers once a week.
The Love of A Wife & Mom Heals
I’ve only been blogging for 9 months and I’ve learned so much in that short time period. I originally started blogging because my husband encouraged me to do so. I’ve been baking gluten-free goodies for him for about 6 years since he was diagnosed with celiac disease.
But in December our 3 year-old son was diagnosed with a gluten, dairy, and egg sensitivity, and that obviously changed everything.
Since then all of my recipes have been made with him in mind. We are all on the same diet for simplicity and safety’s sake. I don’t want to fight that Why can Mommy eat that but I can’t? battle. And I don’t want anyone getting sick because of gluten crumbs in the almond butter.
Eating Healthier Gluten-Free
None of us seem to miss what we’ve lost because we feel better and we’ve noticed the changes in everyone. Food has become our fuel, our energy source.
Most of my baking focuses on every day foods that we might otherwise miss out on living on a healthy gluten-free diet. Today I decided to include my recipe for gluten-free, dairy-free and egg-free bagels.
Who doesn’t love a bagel?
Really, they’re much easier to make than you think. Especially after diving in the first time. They get easier. It’s just like baking bread. It seems scary but it’s not. And the result? Homemade bagels with healthier ingredients.
Imagine being able to bite into freshly made gluten-free bagels that YOU made? It’s really one of life’s greatest foodie pleasures.
