    • Apparently, my parents and brother are not a fan of the chocolate peanut butter combination. I know, right? It’s like I must be adopted or something. I mean, first of all, my family probably consists of aliens. Human beings are not even capable of disliking chocolate and peanut butter. I had no idea they weren’t …

    • Soft and fluffy on the inside, chewy on the outside, and topped with a pinch of kosher salt, Pretzel Bread is hot stuff these days.

    • As soon as I found out that I would be eating gluten free for life, I had this overwhelming feeling of all the foods I would have to give up. Anyone who is gluten free knows that gluten seems to appear in foods you would not even think it would be in. I still remember …

    • Like most children, I was scared of monsters as a kid. But unlike most children, it wasn’t a fear of furry, four-eyed, fanged critters that lived under my bed or in my closet. It was of the bad guys on Forensic Files. Because my parents toooootally thought it was okay to let their young child watch a show …
  6. Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Pretzel Cookies Recipe

    • I’m a cookie lover to the extreme. I could possibly live on them, but I’m sure my doctor would have a different opinion on that. When I went gluten free, I felt like I had lost cookies forever. At that time, although there were a few good gluten free cookie options, for the most part I was limited. I …

    • Even when it’s freezing outside, I’m still on board with the ice cream train. I know, totally crazy. I’m also one of those weird people who will still drink iced coffee in the middle of winter. I can’t help it. I have a special love for cold beverages and desserts. If you think about it I’m just super …

  9. No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Bars Recipe
    • No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Bars Photo
    • I thought that I knew just about every peanut butter recipe out there. Like, simple and easy no-bake type of peanut butter recipes. In my family, we have no shortage of those. So many peanut butter recipes that are snack-like squares or bars, and are really quick and easy to make. Know what I mean? I was proven wrong …

    • These rolls are fantastic. I’m just going to say that right off the bat, because you most definitely need to just skip reading this today and scroll right down to the recipe so you can make them for supper tonight. Seriously. It needs to happen. Not that I really had to tell anyone that. These are …

  13. Peanut Butter Pretzel Truffles Recipe
    • Peanut Butter Pretzel Truffles Photo
    • I am a sweet-salty kind of girl. I love salt on basically everything, sweet or savory, but I definitely like it on a lot of sweet stuff. The weirdest food that I salt might be cranberry sauce. I don’t know how that started, but it did. Thanksgiving is even more sodium-laden for me than the average American. …
  14. Caramel Pretzel Salted Peanut Potato Chip Bark Recipe
    • Caramel Pretzel Salted Peanut Potato Chip Bark Photo
    • I never buy potato chips. I am a sweet-tooth through and through. If I want to have a treat, it’s going to be loaded with sugar or chocolate. Or both, maybe a donut. If I find potato chips in front of me at a friend’s house or at a picnic or something, I’ll have some, and …
  15. Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Bark Recipe
    • Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Bark Photo
    • Chocolate, peanut butter, and pretzels, perhaps one of my favorite combinations of all-time. I love pretzels anyway. I’m a pretzel person. Add peanut butter? I’m losing it. Add chocolate? I’m dead. I hope you feel the same way, but if you don’t, I’m about to convince you. I’m not generally a salty snack person at all, I’m …
