It’s National Soft Pretzel Month!

Hey, friends! Did you know that April is National Soft Pretzel Month? Me neither, until today.

Now, I’m not one to jump on the “food holiday” bandwagon, because really, aren’t most of them just made up by big corporations trying to hawk their products on us? I mean, National Frozen Food Month? National Canned Luncheon Meat Week? National Pigs-in-a-Blanket Day? Umm, no thanks.

But, when the going gets tough, the tough get going … and by that I mean, life has been pretty crazy lately and I haven’t been able to spend much time in the kitchen, hence I don’t have a fabulous recipe to post for you today … but since I don’t want to leave my faithful readers hanging, I’m giving you a little something to wet your whistle with anyway … my list of 10 fabulous soft pretzel recipes, inspired by National Soft Pretzel Month.

Soft Pretzel

Okay, that’s a wee bit of a stretch to get to the topic at hand, but really, these soft pretzels recipes are sure to win you over!

Okay, I realize one of these recipes is for hard pretzels … sometimes you just gotta have something crunchy!

Happy National Soft Pretzel Month, everyone. Tell me … do you have a favorite soft pretzel recipe?

    Isn’t National Pigs-in-a-Blanket Day when we all wrap ourselves in blankets?  No?  You mean I’ve been celebrating it wrong all these years?! 

    Darn.  I hate it when that happens.

    Never made pretzels – but I’m sure someday I will.  Thanks for the list of recipes – I’ll check them out.  And I hope you can get back in the kitchen soon – we’re all hungry!  And need your recipes!  Anyway, thanks for taking time to write this post – it was fun.

      Ha ha ha … I think your description of National Pigs-in-a-Blanket Day is spot on!

      And thanks … The Chef and I have so many things going on right now … I too can’t wait to get back in the kitchen every day!

    Sourdough is one of my favorite things! The Chef and I got some starter from King Arthur’s, and we love it … haven’t made pretzels with it, but I think I have to now!
