33 % More Fun

Life is supposed to be fun

Pretzel Rolls

There is this fabulous German bakery in Alabama that I use to go to for breakfast sometimes. They had these delicious pretzel rolls and I would put cream cheese and strawberry jam on them. Every time I bit into one it would take me back to my Oma’s house, where we had fresh cut german bread and I would smear it with the same delectable toppings, just the way my Oma taught me. The other day I was craving these warm pretzel rolls and thought I would try to make them myself. They turned out good. Not bakery good, but for an amateur’s first time I would say they turned out well. And of course, pretzel rolls are 33% more fun than just plain old dinner rolls.

Grilled Cheese…and…Pickles!

I know what you’re thinking. Grilled cheese and pickles? Really?
YES, it’s amazing!

It all started in 8th grade. I went to a friends house after school and ended up staying for dinner. As her mom made us grilled cheese she suggested I try it their way, with pickle slices on it. She promised to make me another one if I didn’t like it. But she didn’t have to. Turns out I love pickles on my grilled cheese! Of course this has caused lots of strange looks from waitresses throughout the years, but it is delectable.

So tonight, I made grilled cheese and pickles. So often it’s the little things that make a good day great!


P.S. Dipping it in ketchup makes it even better. I know it’s all a bit strange but just try it. What do you have to lose?
