Soft Pretzels

April 9, 2020

When you bite into a homemade pretzel and get a rush of memories flooding through your head, you know you’ve done something right.

First time making pretzels, not the last. I followed the recipe to the point, but i felt the dough was way too sticky, so i increased the flour by 1/2 cup and it turned out great. I used Bread Flour for a chewier pretzel but you can use All Purpose Flour, you’ll get a doughier pretzel. Its a preference.

Traditional Pecan Pie

November 13, 2016

When planning a Thanksgiving dinner, do NOT miss out on including a pecan pie.

I’ve had many pecan pies before but i had never actually made one of my own. And since this year i’ve been doing a lot of “first timers”, why not!

After researching a few recipes online, and figuring out who sells corn syrup in Beirut, i finally decided to try out Sally’s Baking Addiction’s Recipe. It really is such a simple recipe and tastes just like the one I used to have.

The crust of this pie is another story. Made with butter and shortening, this crust is buttery, flakey, and has the exact texture you would imagine a pecan pie to have.
