Default Add shortcut to home screen

I have a Nexus 5 with KitKat. How do I add a homescreen shortcut to a website? I switched from an iphone and this was pretty easy but I can't figure it out on kitkat. I found a couple pre-kitkat examples showing how to do this, but they don't work for kitkat.

Long press on the Homecreen -> select Widgets -> Bookmark -> select page to add
