April McIver Recipe

I’ve always wanted to try making pretzels, but it seemed like something too difficult. Then someone sent me this recipe from Food Mayhem foodmayhem.com/...soft-pretzels.html

I don’t think mine turned out as pretty, but they were definitely good. Around $1 for all the ingredients used, so very affordable to make.
