Pretzel Bites with Homemade Honey Mustard

Posted by on May 13, 2011 in Appetizers, Breads, Snacks | 12 Comments







Julia looked at her new friend doubtfully. “And where am I supposed to sleep?”

The little shell gave her a look as if he was trying to shrug his shoulders. He couldn’t, of course. He was a shell.

Because the girl looked at him so expectantly and made no moves to finding a solution on her own, he sighed and puttered across the table. Julia watched as he skittered onto a plate and disappeared over the rim. A moment later, a golden mound emerged, like a salt-encrusted sun rising up on a new day. It tumbled over the edge of the plate and dropped onto the tabletop with a thud. The shell followed, huffing and looking quite put out.

Together, they stared at the mound and the shell finally nudged it toward her with his tiny shoe.  “At least now you have a pillow,” he said.







Pretzel Bites Recipe– This plate of joy comes from Whats Gaby Cooking– a site I enjoy looking at when the day has gone completely haywire and I just want to look at something clean and neatly arranged and filled with glorious pictures of food. These bites were a big hit in the office, though some got a little too dark for my liking (our fault, not Gaby’s). We all agreed that they’re an unstoppable force when they’re still warm.

Honey Mustard Recipe–  Nicole doesn’t like mayo and I’m on Weight Watchers (surprise!) so this no-mayo honey mustard was the obvious choice. We used honey that came from Nicole’s grandmother’s bees, which is the single foodiest sentence I’ve ever written, which is probably why it was so, so good.

    I like your blog, but gray on white is very difficult to read! Please consider using darker text.

    Thanks and good luck,

    Mel

    I’ve just popped over via foodgawker on my iPhone and also want to add that it’s impossible to read your text! It’s a shame, because your photos look beautiful, but the grey font on white is too difficult to decipher!

    These look deliecious! But I can’t see the recipe. Is it not showing up for anyone else? I see the pictures and the blog write-up, but no recipe. I need!

      Hey Jonny, sorry about that. We recently re-designed the site and looks like some of the text went missing. It’s fixed now and the links are there, thanks!
