B-Day Baking

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

I’m a big fan of Gina’s food blog – SPCookieQueen.  You can tell this by the fact that I actually baked yesterday.  Baking + Parsley Sage = Disaster and tears in the kitchen.  But it’s her birthday today and all she wanted was a Birthday Pretzel.  So I manned up, found a yeast-free recipe, mixed up some homemade jerk seasoning and got my ‘knead’ on.

Here’s wishing Gina loads of Happy Birthday hugs, presents, pretzels and drinks full of Patron Silver 🙂

  28. I hear you on the baking! I hide from baking of (almost) all kinds. (I do think I make a pretty good cheesecake but that's pretty hard to screw up!) But I will “man up” fr a friend's birthday! Proud of you, girl!
