Whole Wheat Soft Pretzels

unbaked pretzels

It’s hard to resist a hot soft pretzel, fresh from the oven and smelling of yeast, salt and – depending on how indulgent you’re feeling – butter. Soft pretzels are a staple of mall food courts, sports stadiums and theme parks, but are far less commonly seen at home. Fortunately, they’re quite easy to make and definitely worth the effort.

Whole Wheat Cinnamon Raisin Bread

It has been a while since I have posted a yeast bread recipe. This isn’t because I haven’t been baking them, however.

Going for something healthy for breakfast, I used whole wheat flour and wheat bran in these. I was hoping for something hearty, but not expecting a whole lot in ... Read More »

Whole Wheat Pie Crust

I recently signed up to test some recipes for the Good Home Cookbook, which is conducting the first national, public recipe testing campaign. There are over 1,000 participants! I received three recipes to test: Herbed Bread Sticks, Sugar Cookies and Sweet Potato Pie. The breadsticks were outstanding and I had fun making the cookies. I’m not giving out any recipes yet, though. If you want ... Read More »
