Balsamic Vinaigrette – Pinterest Saturday

I LOVE Pinterest and have so many recipes I want to try!!  So I decided that Saturday is going to be Pinterest Saturday where I post about something I pinned. 

It feels almost like Summer in North Carolina.  The sky is blue, the birds are singing and we opened our pool.  We don’t have a heat in our pool so the water is COLD (about 72)!!!!  But during the heat of the day my youngest, her boyfriend and my husband went in.  My daughter stayed in about 2 minutes but the boys stayed in much longer.  Me, I won’t be going in until its at least 85 in the water 🙂

This little guy came out of the pool before K jumped in

This weather is making our thoughts turn to salads and I made a lovely balsamic viniagrette from Chinese Grandma.  this viniagrette is the right combination of sweet and spicy and even my husband who likes nothing but purchased Italian dressing enjoys it.  It is quick to mix up and tastes delicious.  Definitely a most excellent pin!!!

Pretzel Rolls

SO I am totally obsessed with Pinterest (are you on Pinterest? I got my daughter obsessed- she’s into the hair and nail stuff) and pin a lot of recipes to try.  Finally this weekend I tried one and it was sooooooooooo good!!!!!!!   I made Pretzel Rolls!! 

Pretzel Rolls have all the best qualities of a pretzel, the beautiful brown, salty outside and the tender inside.  They are unbelievably good for sandwiches (we had a ham so there was lots left for sandwiches and pretzel rolls are the perfect compliment to the ham).  They are also easy to make.  I really like dropping them in the water for a minute- look at all the steam in this picture J  Thant steam makes them pretzely.

They are definitely a keeper (my daughter’s already after me to make them again), I think they were better than the ones I purchased a few months ago.  Here’s the link to the recipe from The Dutch Baker’s Daughter.
