The Pretzel Princess
Recently I was asked what was my secret ingredient; I thought on it for quite some time. Each flavor has a special recipe so which ingredient , if any one, would be the secret ingredient? I thought back to my childhood, all our family recipes have a pinch of this, a drop of that or just a dusting of something so there is truly no real family recipe let alone a secret ingredient. I think the answer to the question is our family “secret” would be love, caring and compassion.
As far back as I can remember Grandma, Aunt Caddy and my mom were always in the kitchen preparing for bake sales. fundraisers or just a neighbor in need. The women in my family were huggers, they hugged everyone physically and with a compassionate gesture of sharing. Luckly for me they passed that gene on....I am also a hugger with an obsessive need to feed. Some people have a need for speed well I have a need to feed. I get the biggest thrill when samplers get excited over of the product; it makes me warm all over :)
So I guess my secret ingredient is love.
