I’ve never been to England. France, yes. But, during my year in Europe, I never hopped the channel to visit Great Britain. I love British Literature, though.

Whole Wheat Soft Pretzels & Easter

Soft Pretzels 2

My kids generally associate soft pretzels with a trip to the mall. We had some “buy one get one” coupons one time last summer and so we indulged.
