I've never seen chocolate Smarties in the states. My Hubby was a bit disappointed though when I told them they were chocolate instead of the regular ones we have here, lol. How'd I marry a person who doesn't like chocolate?

As promised, here's the picture of my package from muria:



In addition to her recipes, she sent me two "Taste of Home" magazines (which I've never heard of and can't wait to delve into), a book of Casserole recipes (both my parents are from the South, so I learned early on that there isn't much a casserole can't fix), a magnetized guide of charts and measurements (already stuck to the refrigerator next to the stove since I said previously I always have to look these up) and a package or pretzel salt to use for her soft pretzel recipe. I'm excited to learn how to make pretzels. New skill!

I haven't gotten a chance to make anything yet, because my husband has been cooking for me all weekend to make up for the fact that we couldn't celebrate Valentine's Day properly last Wednesday because of work things, but I'm sure things will be back to normal soon so I can get back into the kitchen.

Thanks muria!

Absolutely. Here you go (muria says she got it out of National Geographic World when she was little):

Soft Pretzels

1/8 cup hot water
1 package yeast
1 1/3 cups warm water
1/3 cup brown sugar
4-5 cups flour
baking soda
coarse kosher salt (or pretzel salt)

Preheat overn to 475 degrees. Mix hot water and yeast in large bowl until yeast dissolves. Stir in sugar and water. Add flour, one cup at a time. Stir until mixture is smooth and doesn't stick to the sides of the bowl. Knead dough on floured board. Grease cookie sheet. Using a piece of dough about the size of a golf ball, roll dough between hands to form a rope of dough. See instructions below for proper pretzel shaping. In a small saucepan, mix baking soda with water (1 tablespoon baking soda to 1 cup water). Bring to a simmer (small bubbles, not actively bubbling). Dip each pretzel into baking soda water for 30 seconds. Place on a greased cookie sheets. Bake at 475 degrees for 8 minutes, until brown.

Pretzel Shaping 101:

1. Make an upside down U
2. Cross the ends
3. Cross the ends again
4. Fold the ends up over the top

Whoops!  I forgot to mention that you put the salt on after you dip them in the baking soda water.  Smiley   

My recipe cards at home look like this:

Pretzels                           475   8 min               
1/8 c hot water
1 pkg yeast
1 1/3 c warm water
1/3 c brown sugar
4-5 c flour
1 T baking soda : 1 c water


And that's it.   Smiley  I have the actual source for the recipe around here somewhere, but I've made everything I sent enough times that I could do it half asleep.  Smiley  Let me know if I left out any other important steps.  Smiley

I'm glad you like everything!

Thanks for the clarification. At first I thought you did it when you removed them from the oven, but then I figured that the salt would stick better if you did it right before baking.

Ah!  I can help you there!

See that photobucket insert on the right when you reply to a message -->

Sign up for an account there (if you don't have one already) (click the "Register now" link)

Upload your pic to photo bucket. 

Then once you sign in to the photo bucket tool your pictures will display as tiny thumbnails. 

Click on the one you want to post and then paste it (CTRL + V) into the body of your message. 

(When you click on the tiny photo in the photobucket window, it automatically copies the image for you, so all you have to do is paste).

Can't wait to see what you got!!!

Here are my goodies!
I Can't believe how easy photobucket is!
Back to the recipes, there are heaps of them and they are laminated (trust me a BIG help in my kitchen),
They all co-ordinate, the box, the recipe cards and the Recipe notes book, (So Cute)  Oh and a box of stuffing mix, that's vegitarian so i can use it in our seafood free kitchen Smiley Every note has a little bit about where the recipe came from and why it is one of her favourites, Ohh and some yorkshire tea which my mum is going to love and a note to me. SOOOO much stuff and it all matches!
So lovely, thanks so much Kate.
