Caramelized Brussels Sprouts with Pistachios
DEEEEE-licious! I sauteed some bacon and reserved 2Tbs of the drippings (and cut the butter back). I also cut the sprouts in half before steaming and sauteeing and the flaver permeated all the way through. Seriously good!

Buttery Soft Pretzels
Seriously amazing pretzels... soft & chewy on the inside with a browned crust on the outside that softens slightly with the butter. Changes I made: only used 4 cups flour (half unbleached white, half wheat), used brown sugar instead of white, and made this in the bread machine on dough cycle. Absolute best topping HANDS DOWN was parmesan-garlic that I made by whizzing some fresh parmesan and garlic powder (the kind with parsley & herbs in) in a mini-food processor. Sprinkle over the pretzels after you butter the tops. The only change I would make is to reduce the sugar to 1/3 cup. They were just a bit too sweet (even with sweet toppings on, the sweetness was too much and tasted like sweet bread instead of a pretzel). And I am a HUGE sweet lover! Husband and party-goers were hovering near the stove to claim pretzels as they were coming out of the oven and gobbled them up as fast as I could get them made. MAKE A DOUBLE BATCH...!!

Peanut Butter Banana Muffins
I added more peanut butter and more banana as other reviewers had suggested and while I could taste each element and the muffins turned out very moist, they were just BLAH. I do not think that a muffin texture is strong enough to handle peanut butter AND banana (and I even added in a 1/2 cup oats for some texture!) This needs to be modified into a cookie and then maybe it would be worth eating. I gave it two stars because it was a great tender & moist muffin and the protein kept us going in the mornings. The flavor just wasn't there. I will not be making this recipe again.
