I get the Penzeys Spices catalog (if you are saying "um, Kysa....what are you talking about?" you need to open another window and Google Penzeys Spices...or better yet, here's a link, just make sure you come back to MY blog soon! www.penzeys.com) and one of the recipes was for homemade soft pretzels. Um, okay! I had been talking to Lilija about making these for a few weeks and after getting the wrong kind of yeast and then not having bread flour I finally had all of the ingredients! It was going to be a fun and magical of night of pretzel making.

|This seems a little sticky...|

|This is what they are SUPPOSED to look like...|
|This is what OURS looked like!|
