Pretzels and more

Take a break, take a pretzel

I am 13 years old and in search of a perfect pretzel recipe and get closer every trial. I have scoured the internet for recipes and have found some pretty exceptional ones but in every one something was missing, I didn’t know what it was until I created my own recipe. It was the feeling of creativity and feeling as though I was just a copy cat not only does it feel great to have my very own creation but I can share and alter it to make it more enjoyable.
