Home from Vacay

Wow, it seems like forever since I’ve last posted here, and that definitely makes me a little sad! I began this blog with the hopes of posting at least once a week and sharing my passion for baking with anyone willing to read my ramblings! But  I definitely haven’t been holding myself to that.

Recently I have been finding it hard to find the time to do the writing of the posts, I haven’t had an issue with the baking part! Not only have I been busy finishing my Master’s in Biology (I have officially passed!); I also got a new job and went on vacation for two weeks! I’ll write more about those exciting events in another post. Right now I want to share a recipe I found before I left on vacation.
Pretzels are one of my Mom’s favourite foods. Anytime we go to a Cirque du Soleil show, or any type of circus/show/sports game, she has to get a pretzel. So by proxy, I have come to love pretzels as well. I tried making them once before, but they weren’t true soft pretzels. They didn’t have that dark brown, snappy exterior and the sea salt typical of soft pretzels. So, I decided to try my hand at them again, and boy, were they awesome this time!
