Healthy snacks are pretty much an essential in our home. Adam and I have always eaten smaller meals throughout the day with a couple of snacks here and there. Not only do I like to make my own snacks, but I’ve really been concentrating on making healthy yet satisfying ones over the last couple of months. We’re still getting settled into our new home and have just a few projects (that require quite a bit of muscle work) left. So I decided to stock up our “good for you” options that’ll provide us with plenty of energy.

And when I stumbled upon this new to me recipe, I knew instantly that I had to share it with all of you. This one’s simply too good not to.

Ya’ll know by now that I love a great bite, truffle, ball or whatever you want to call ’em. I don’t discriminate between healthy and indulgent, but when both of them come together, I can’t resist. And I bet you can’t either once you give them a go! [Read more…]

A good Monday morning is spent talking about carbs in the best possible form. Don’t you agree? So let’s chat about Pretzel Twists. Which is easily my favorite way of enjoying anything pretzel these days. Actually, who am I kidding?! Pretzels in any way, shape or form are perfectly suitable for my palate. I have yet to meet a pretzel I didn’t like. Unless you count my baking fail from a couple of weekends ago when I was left with rock hard and beyond sad-looking pretzel twists. Those ones I seriously didn’t like. But let’s move away from fails and concentrate on my most recent success instead.

After getting to bite into one of these beauties, I was so happy I didn’t give up. Having made regular soft pretzels as well as pretzel rolls in the past, I knew that pretzel-baking wasn’t too difficult and worth every minute. Though it only takes 2 hours from start to finish until you can hold your own in your hands.

If you’re a fellow pretzel lover, then Pretzel Twists are a must! [Read more…]
