Jan's Pretzel Dogs
This is a fantastic and easy recipe. I started out using the dough to wrap hot dogs, but the recipe has now turned into my "go to" for all homemade pretzels and pretzel buns. Perfect texture for sliders, brats and all burgers. If you will not be eating everything fresh, omit the salt on top of the pretzels ~ the salt "melts" with storage.

Simple Whole Wheat Bread
I have made this bread more than a dozen times now in all types of humidity/temperature conditions. It is fabulous! Perfect for sandwiches ~ holds up for several days. I omit the butter on top of the bread, instead opting for a nice crust. It is so easy to make ~ I have not purchased "store" sandwich bread in months.

Lime Cilantro Rice
The lime was the prominent flavor in this dish (although I am making it using cilantro grown in March, which is not a flavorful as summer cilantro). I steamed the rice so that the grains were firm and separate and the overall dish was not "gluey" which sometimes happens cooking rice on the stove. After the rice was perfectly cooked, I stirred the lime-cilantro mixture into the rice. After tasting, I sprinkled a bit of sea salt on the rice. Next time I make this, I will reduce the lime and increase the cilantro.
