Homemade Pretzel Bites || Amazing!

Homemade pretzel bites! 

Homemade pretzel bites. Wow, amazing!


These are so so so delicious, make them tonight! Earlier in the week I made JalapeƱo Popper Pretzel Dogs for dinner and it sparked my interest in trying homemade pretzels. I found this recipe on Pinterest this morning, had all the ingredients and a few hours later the man and I were enjoying these bites size goodies. 

>> Recipe notes >> 

If you've never made pretzels or bagels before you're going to trip out on the boiling first in water and baking soda, yes that's right! When I read that for the pretzel dogs, I reread it a number of times to make sure I was seeing that correctly. Crazy! 

Careful on adding the baking soda to the water it does foam up briefly, I added a little at a time. 

I served these with the cheese sauce in the recipes, it was great, but next time I'll add more milk it was VERY thick. 

I also served it with the most amazing honey mustard dip that the man's mom makes. It's so go, I'm pretty sure it's the reason I even like mustard now, didn't used to. 

Enjoy! 


P.S. Maria also has a recipe for a Cinnamon and Sugar version with a dipping sauce, I will try these next. 

Happy cooking!

Oven Broiled Parmesan Garden Tomatoes || Yum!

Do you love that crusty toasty parmesan cheese taste? Love tomatoes, warm tomatoes? If yes and yes, these are for you! 

Yesterday somehow I stumbled upon this recipe and it caught my eye, I think it might have been in someone's FB feed, whatever it doesn't matter, I wanted to make them. I checked the ingredients and I had everything, it was added to my dinner plans!

Chicken in a Basket and Hash || Breakfast

I love lazy Saturday mornings. 
I have a big project to complete this weekend, but I let myself have a lazy Saturday morning to start it off. 

For breakfast I made a favorite, chicken in a basket and hash. My mom used to make this for me growing up, I thought she was a genius the first time she made it.
