on wednesday night, i was trying to think of something to do when i visited julie’s blog and started looking through her recipes. as soon as i saw the soft pretzels, i remembered my list and decided to go for it!

i busted out my stand mixer.

forced myself to get over my fear of yeast.

(it was my first time ever baking with yeast!)

and got to work.

i just followed julie’s recipe for plain, homemade soft pretzels.

seriously, it was so easy! the step-by-step directions were really clear and i wasn’t even nervous.

i followed the recipe exactly except that i didn’t have sea salt, i just used regular table salt to sprinkle on top.

i also sprinkled half of the pretzels with garlic gold nuggets, basil, and oregano!
