Magazine Cuisine: Episode 1

A new year, means a new cookbook for Nate and I to scour for yummy recipes to try every week. After a year with Martha (Great Food Fast), a year with Nigella (Nigella Express) and one with Cooking Light (Way to Cook), we decided we needed more variety in our lives.

And thus, Magazine Cuisine was born.

2011 will bring lots of fun food inspired magazine to the Hanson mailbox: Food Network, Cooking Light, Food, and a few others I know I am forgetting.

But the point is that we are really excited to keep our cooking  a new recipe a week tradition alive!

With football season upon us, could there have been a more perfect recipe than: Homemade Soft Pretzels (from January 2011 Food Network magazine. Recipe Here).

We made three version: Original, Cinnamon and Sugar and Italian (parmesan, garlic and oregano). Italian was hands down the best.

These were best straight out of the oven or slightly heated up in the microwave. Either way, they were delicious and the Packers won the day we made them, so perhaps this wil need to be playoff tradition.....assuming they can hold it together for 2 more minutes tonight. :)

You should make some sort of bobble headed delight in honor of Rogers and his fat helmet...peckerhead. It would have been nice if he got bumped out again. I was very dissapointed the over hyped defense didn't deliver a career ending blow to vick. I'd been ok with green bay winning if they could have done that...however...
