Carbs, Carbs, Carbs

Happy Friday!

I know I haven’t posted in awhile, but life has gotten in the way…like it always does :)

But this time, it’s all good things.

I’ve been working on a few food stories for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. I got to make these to-die-for homemade pretzels for their DIY column (for you King Arthur Flour fans out there, these are their Hot Buttered Pretzels).

I’ll make sure to post the recipe next week, after it prints, for those living outside Wisconsin. But let me tell you this: These pretzels were seriously the most delicious treats I’ve made in months. And unlike many other recipes I’ve made for the paper, I wasn’t super stressed out or yelling at B (which is what usually happens when we are flying around the kitchen and trying to take pictures at the same time). I blame our lack of counter space :)

One of the main reasons I wanted to try pretzels was because B has been making his own bread with the stand mixer.

His latest creation:

Don’t mind the “my bread has a tumor” shape. It still tasted great!

Speaking of baking, I’ve got a pile of ripe bananas that are calling my name on the counter. I may have to try this Heavenly Healthy Banana Bread recipe from King Athur flour.

Question: Have you tackled homemade yeast breads?
