Never quite follows the recipe. Doesn't really measure. Tastes with her fingers. Somehow, it always works.

Quickly, quickly

So I’ve been in a bit of a funk lately. Just a little down.
So tonight, on a whim, at 9pm I started baking pretzels. I’m insane. I know it, it’s ok.
I think I really needed to do some yeast cookery. I haven’t made bread since February. And really really…. I miss it. So, this was a good move. They’re delicious.

Just try it. I don’t know what the soda solution bath does. I brushed mine with butter and sprinkled them with salt before I baked them. I support this method. Do it.

***UPDATE****

Fun facts:
Contrary to popular opinion, these are not difficult. The only difficult thing is the folding of the pretzel. And if you’re not bothered by fugly pretzels (I’m not) even that’s not hard!! You just make a long, skinny snake out of pretzel dough (don’t flour your board/counter. your dough will be sticky, but if you flour, it’ll fall apart.) and then make an upside-down U with the pretzel, so the ends are pointing at you. Pick up the tails, cross left over right, and smash down into the upside-down U part. Done.
Don’t salt them if you’re planning to have left-overs. The salt makes them mushy and a little…. wet. It’s odd.
OR, just eat them all in one go. This also works. :)
