Soft Buttery Baked Whole Wheat Pretzels

Dishing It Out With Clarissa


Who else besides me loves a warm Auntie Anne’s pretzels when shopping at your local mall? I mean how could one not notice the heavenly scent of fresh-baked pretzels upon entering the food court area? The dark and warm outer layer, soft all on the inside, with no salt and a touch of unsalted butter is enough to send me over to plop my cash down, and cave into my savory desire that takes me back to the good old days of being a teenager hanging out at the mall window shopping at Spencer’s, the thick vanilla’s shakes at Bob’s Big Boy, spending my allowance at the arcade leaving me enough money to stop and get a pretzel before heading home.

About Dish With Clarissa

Clarissa Ellis grew up learning to cook with her mom. In a time where traditional home-cooked food was going out of style, Clarissa learned to love and make those simple 'comfort foods' and family favorites. As she grew - and her mom got busier with long work hours, Clarissa supported her mom by taking over most of the cooking duties around the home. By the time Clarissa started high school - she had absorbed her mother's approach to traditional, homestyle Italian dishes; and thanks to So Cal's great weather year round... a love of cooking on the grill. Fast forward 30 years and Clarissa has never stopped cooking. She continued to explore food, learning more from So Cal's amazing cultural variety, trying things out on her family and her friends... and always learning. Never content to merely cook a good meal, Clarissa developed the habit of talking sharing her ideas with family, friends and coworkers. After a lifetime of learning and experimenting, Clarissa's love affair with traditional Italian cooking, and 'comfort foods' has grown into a robust, creative and cross-cultural approach to cooking that still manages to remain 'accessible' to the rest of us. Now Clarissa brings her experience and her approach online through her blog - giving all of us a chance give ourselves, our friends and our family the benefits of a lifetime of passion and joy in cooking simply great meals.
