I LOVE pickles. Anything pickled is instantly better. This past weekend was Pickle Day in NYC’s Lower East Side, featuring several pickle and food vendors from the metro area. I’ve had most of the fancy pickles made in NYC, so I decided to try something new and picked up a container of Horman’s Best Pickles from Long Island. Their kosher dill pickles didn’t blow my socks off, but their spicy sours were very good. I used the kosher dills to recreate Guy Fieri’s fried pickle chips, which were damn tasty.
Hello there! As you can see, Vegan MoFo (which I couldn’t even finish) completely wore me out. But I’m back, with pretzels! These soft pretzels are a copycat recipe (adapted from this one) of the ones you’d get at the mall. They’re soft, buttery, chewy and just a tad sweet. I served mine with a “honey” mustard, made by mixing brown mustard with agave. This recipe is simple if you have a stand mixer, and requires about 10 minutes of kneading without. I don’t have a stand mixer so it took some work, but it was definitely worth it. I’ll be back on the Guy Fieri wagon next week!
