Charlotte has developed a habit lately of pinching my back-fat while indignantly squealing in disbelief. It’s like she’s trying to send me a message. Mom! Check out your squishy back-fat! This is incredibly disgusting! You really should try dieting. It reminds me of when I was at a Chinese restaurant one time with my friend

A few months ago Eric and I went out for dessert at Magleby’s, a local restaurant famous for its breadsticks. They are quite delicious, but it’s a stretch of the imagination to even call them breadsticks; ovals of Italian-y dough fried in a vat of oil and smothered with parmesan is more like it. Not

There has been a death in the family. RIP Ethel. She gave up the ghost in Shelby, Montana, last week, and there she will lie forever. Ethel was our old Buick. You can’t really blame her for kicking the can at 220,000 miles, but it sure was inconvenient for us. Eric’s dad Chip (We’ve since

Can we just go ahead and make hot dogs their own special food group? I mean, nobody really knows what’s in them anyway, right? I personally think the mystique adds to their appeal. Maybe they’re secretly made out of celery and you actually burn more calories than you consume. We could just add them in

Mozzarella-Stuffed Soft Pretzels

Mozzarella-Stuffed Soft Pretzels
Posted in : Breads, Muffins & Rolls on by : admin

It’s like a Pretzel Dog you get at the mall, but instead of wrapping the dough around a hot dog I used mozzarella cheese. Gooey, pretzel-y happiness. Perfect for dipping in honey-mustard sauce! So this morning I turned around to see Truman staring down at a large puddle of milk he’d just spilled, a plastic mug
