  1. I have been wanting to try making these pretzels since I watched this episode of Bobby Flay’s Throwdown. I just haven’t done it yet !
    Soft Pretzels with Queso Poblano Sauce and Mustard Sauce


  2. Here’s a recipe to try for your “cook with capers” item above.

    I didn’t include capers, but it usually does, Try it if you


  3. We have some similar goals–maybe we can bake something together.

  4. WOW!
    The recipes and also the future recipes look really good. I am going to have to try some of them. Grandma S. would be excited and proud of your culinary skills and the blog!

  5. I have always wanted to make those hand pies over at alpineberry too! I guess you could say they’re on my list as well. If and when you make them, I can’t wait to see them=)

  6. Oh, I want to make one just like this too. Actually I have one in my head. Great idea to write them down. Thanks!!!!

  7. I have been looking for a great Danish kringle recipe too! I got addicted to them while working in Boston, but even though I went to the farmers’ market every day it was open to get some they wouldn’t give me the recipe!
