Pretzels... with a twist

My new craving is pretzels and I'm not even pregnant anymore! Seriously though, as the snow pours our way, I'm in the kitchen baking all day. With a newborn and toddler running around, I have not found ANY time for new designs or projects in my house SO I've decided to integrate recipes on my blog. As a mom, I wear many hats -- one which happens to be a chef hat. Documenting recipes for home AND tummy keeps my mind going and my lovely audience coming back for more. 

Here are the pretzels I made with a twist, literally. They were yummy and the best part of the pretzel! Seriously, this recipe is so easy to put together if you have a little time. Check it out under 'Snowy Day = Warm Pretzels' post. However, instead of making the dough into pretzels, you will instead roll them out and twist away into sticks.

Simple.... and sooooooo worth it!

Green Drink [du jour]

What's on the menu this morning? Another 'gone green' drink! Literally, 'gone'... right into my tummy. Since our steep investment in our Vitamix (which will be completely paid off in March!), I've been dabbling in juicing and making all sorts of things for my daughter. Yes, I confess that I sneak in her veggies in all those smoothies I give her. Guilty as charged.

Here are today's list of ingredients:

Wheat Grass
Avocado (half)
Apple (quarter)
Lemon (squeeze)
Chia seeds
Flax seeds

This, I find, is the best way to begin my day and all it has to offer. And when I'm done, I wear my green mustache proudly!
