Fluffy Pancakes
I replaced the 3/4cup milk and 2 tbsp white vinegar instead with 1/2 cup plain yogurt and 1/4 cup plain unsweetened soymilk, and the 2 tbsp white sugar instead with 3 tbsp brown sugar. I also added 1 tsp vanilla extract like someone else recommended. These ended up being the most delicious pancakes and my sister and I ate them up really quickly. Today will be my 3rd time over 4 days making them. I would definitely recommend to other people!

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes
I followed the recipe exactly as directed (but used unsalted butter), and my pancakes ended up salty and bitter. I ended up not being able to eat them. So I came back, and read reviews to figure out what went wrong.... and guess what? I used baking SODA instead of baking POWDER. Wow. I feel stupid. So I'll make these tomorrow again, with baking powder this time, and we'll see how they turn out. Also, I'll reduce the salt to 1/2 tsp.

Mall Pretzels
These pretzels were amazing. I made the recipe exactly and they came out perfect. The recipe was incredibly easy to follow. The first batch I put on melted butter after baking, and the second batch I put on the melted butter before baking. Make sure you put the butter on AFTER baking because they are SOOO good that way (and better)! My sister didn't know that they were made from scratch because she thought they were so good. I sprinkled coarse kosher salt on most of the pretzels, put some cinnamon sugar on a couple, and a bit of garlic powder and coarse salt on a couple. These were overall just awesome! Chewy, soft, and PLAIN DELISH! I recommend this recipe to anyone and everyone! Oh and p.s. they are the best when they are FRESHLY BAKED so eat up!
