My first recipe that I went for was a bread item, namely pretzels. I honestly had no idea how easy, theraputic, and well, inexpensive it is to make pretzels. I normally would take a long drive down to Gus' when I have a severe craving for them but this would definitely be cheaper than the gas. Keep in mind that I did this all by hand and it was incredibly simple. I used the "Martha Recipe" which consisted of flour, water, yeast and sugar. That is it! I know huh, crazy. They turned out fantastic and were loved by the family. I even made some little mini pretzels that Marcus could hold on to. Check out the pics below and follow this link for the recipe I used Pretzels
Next, I made another bread item but it was for breakfast on Sunday morning. Of course I had to follow a recipe from Paula Deen that I had pinned for Gorilla Bread. It was incredibly easy and a nice spin on the traditional canned biscuit Monkey Bread with cream cheese being placed in the middle of each biscuit before baking. It was good but very, very sweet and rich.....a little too much for me but I tried it and that is what is important. Below are the pics.
