Lola Cooks: Soft Pretzels and Roasted Garlic Dip

You know what’s good? …warm, chewy, pull-apart soft pretzels.  The texture is so wonderful and the occasional slight crunch of the coarse salt makes it even better. You may be surprised to learn how incredibly easy they are to make. It takes some time, but it’s well worth it. Pretzels are delicious with mustard.  However, […]

As holidays go, Easter sort of gets the short end of the stick. It has all of the makings of a great holiday, but never quite the same oomph. There is candy, a fun, lovable character, and customs and traditions.

They are also delicious. This is not the usual rolled […]
