I could post about how several members of my family are sick (again), or the hysterical song my dh came up with about President Obama buying us all pizza...
... but I don't think that would interest many.
So instead, I offer you this AMAZING, wonderful, easy pretzel recipe from Allrecipes. I've tried making pretzels before, with very sad results. These, on the other hand, require you to boil them before baking, which makes all the difference in the world.
That, and I dabbed a tiny bit of melted butter on top when they came out.
My family -- even the sick ones -- were singing the praises of my culinary skills (cough cough) and begging me to make more of these.
I definitely will have to double (or triple) the batch next time.
