Homemade Hot Pretzels & Deep-Fried Fettuccini Knots

Oh yum.... Today I made homemade whole wheat hot pretzels.  They are yummy!  The boys covered them with Easy Cheez.  I dipped mine in mustard. 

Here's the recipe....  adapted from Alton Brown by Kirbie's Creations.

The pretzels are soft inside, chewy and tough on the outside just like a good pretzel should be.  I put
Celtic Grey Sea Salt on mine.  It is subtle, but adds a lot to the flavor.

How about this for a fun party food?  Deep-fried Fettuccini!  Really!  It is awesome!
I found the recipe at Ceramic Canvas and their recipe tutorial is very nice and the pictures prettier than mine!
Go  check it out.  It is SO easy... but beware, it makes your house smell like a doughnut shop.  I think these would also taste great with some powdered sugar sprinkled on them... or maybe some cinnamon and sugar.
Oh... and I did not put the wasabi powder in them.  They were perfect for the poker party we had.

Free Halloween Cupcake Wrappers and Toppers

Halloween is in the AIR!  I'm totally stoked to get my Halloween stuff out and start decorating.  Maybe tomorrow morning!  If I do, look for the post on my other blog... Pixeltrashamania.  For directions on how to print and cut out these cupcake wrappers, go under the header labeled "Cupcake Printables" above. You will also find LOTS more freebie cupcake wrappers.  If you use these, please send me an email with pictures!  I'd love to see!



 Cupcake toppers.  Just glue to a toothpick and stick them into your icing!

More traditional toppers to glue/tape to toothpicks and top those cupcakes cutely!

May I also suggest? 
This stand would be perfect for these Halloween cupcakes!

I'd love to make these chocolate covered pretzels look like theirs (probably couldn't!) and stick them in the tops of the cupcakes as cupcake toppers.

Or how about these guys stuck right into the icing and sticking out of the cupcakes with the cupcake wrappers on them?  Cute!


Oh... and if I only had the MONEY... check this out! I love a cake stand and this one would be AWESOME!!!

Toaster Bags

I just recieved an email in my inbox that had this product in it and I think I might have to try it!!!  Check it out.  It is a reusable toaster bag for grilling sandwiches in the toaster.  WHAT???  I would love to be able to throw a grilled cheese in the toaster and let it toast up and then just put a little bag in the dishwasher.  I'm going to order these.  I'll let you know how they work!  Has anyone else used them?  Do they work?  If so, which do you have and which should I try?  Do they wash well in the dishwasher?  I am going to go for the cheapest if I don't hear from anyone in my comments.
