Past Recipe Recurrence
Every once in a while, we each stumble across a great recipe that we promise to continue creating until perfection for countless days. However, as soon as a new treat comes along, we stick the old one into a box and rarely look back. A few weeks ago, I was reminded of a delicious recipe that returned to my life through a newspaper sidebar. My children remembered this delicious strawberry pretzel dessert and insisted that I make it again. Having not created this dish for several years, my family was impressed by the refreshing reminder of the memories it brought back.
We were introduced to this dessert by a dear friend who was incredibly talented. The recipe I found was not exactly the same, but the similarities allowed me to critique it to how we were used to it. The rush and perfect balance of salty and sweet that enters the mouth is a sensational experience.
