It was the weekend but that didn’t matter. The snow trapped us in and soon time blurred together and you couldn’t remember what day it was. We spent time outside and braved the weather so there was reason for a delicious snack. Does anyone else do that – go outside, or have a good workout and then really reward yourself with a treat? I know I’m starting to sound really simple, it’s basically what we do for our dog – she loves treats, but it’s true. This time we decided to whip up some homemade pretzels – and they were so delicious I had to share them with you. I hadn’t made homemade pretzels since grade school, and I have never made them like this – good ol’ Alton Brown always has a few cooking tricks up his sleeve that make things delicious. They were super simple, and the recipe can be found at food network. We made two versions- a salty and sweet, and I have to say the sweet came in a definite second place to the salty. It was a last minute decision to throw cinnamon and sugar on them and I think there’s a better way to make a sweet version. We spiced up some cider to go along with it and it was the perfect winter treat!
