I have been hugely slacking here on the blog...it's a shame really. I have over 80 drafts just sitting waiting to be scheduled. Pretty much all of them have pictures and the recipe ready-to-go. It's just me sitting down and making a printable version (copy/pasting), labeling them, and adding a nifty description to the pictures. And then, of course, talking a bit. I have tons to say about life and the recipes, just not enough time to sit and type it all up!

So...I'll kind of touch base here a little...

We are house-hunting...amid my in-class observations and doctor's appointments.

It's quite the life...we're on the go...go go go!

And man-oh-man do I wish I had some of these bars in my life right now. They are salty and sweet, crunchy and chewy. They are kind of a little difficult to make, in that, the pretzel crust wants to just slide all around, but they turn out just fine even if they aren't absolutely perfect - and that's what matters, right?!
