  4. Five things I’ve learned about life through driving in LA traffic:

    1) Drive fast, take chances
    2) If you dont improvise and go with the flow, youll hit resistance (and probably hit hard)
    3) Big car, big ego. Small car, big ego
    4) How are there so many of us and where are we going?
    5) Just remember how sunny it is

  7. I made these No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Bars for my Gramma’s 88th birthday today.  To sit there, sharing stories and enjoying seconds and thirds with her, you realize you’re never too old to have chocolate, peanut butter and pretzels in your dessert.   
Cheers to you, Ellie Butler - one of the best women on this planet!

  15. Soft Rye Pretzels, fresh out of the oven, spicy mustard, a freshly cracked cold beer….

Need I say more?

I made these soft pretzels for the first time over two years ago (recipe here) and was, and still am, amazed by their show-stopping results from little effort.  No fancy tools, no laundry list of ingredients… just your hands, a little time and a fridge at-the-ready stocked with mustard and beer.  These twisty delights… seriously, they’re amazing.  

God must be German.

Amen.
