Homemade English Muffins

In The Weekend Baker: Irresistible Recipes, Simple Techniques, and Stress-Free Strategies for Busy People, there is a recipe for English muffins.  I was fascinated by the idea of making them from scratch.  You know how you think some things are simply impossible to make from scratch?  Well, English muffins were one of those things for me.  But the recipe looked really good and I was up super early one morning, so I tried my hand it. They were delicious and so easy to make. I spent the time it took for the dough to rise reading the Sunday paper.  Now I've spoiled myself and my family and we will never be able to eat store-bought English muffins again. 

Next on my list of "impossible to make from scratch"?  Bagels.
