One book that I am really excited to have received is Bake and Destroy: Good Food for Bad Vegans by Natalie Slater. This book is totally badass! Not only are there enticing pictures taken by Celine Steen, there are awesome doodles by Betty Turbo and super clever recipe titles. Oh and the foreword is by CM Punk. Uh, WHAT?! So many levels of awesome here.
I felt like this book got me, as a person. My mom on the other hand, did not share in my excitement about the fun drawings and radical recipe titles. Party pooper! Or I’m just a nerd, either way, I don’t really care; I’m just stoked to have this book in my possession! My only regret, at this point, is that I didn’t have more time to make recipes from it before heading out-of-town last week. As some of you may have seen on my Instagram I am in Michigan for two weeks, visiting family and what-have-you.
But, the recipe that I did try was definitely a winner. I can’t even remember the last time I had a pretzel dog, and I have to say, I was a little apprehensive about making these. After looking at the ingredients and directions, though, they seemed easy enough; and they totally were. One weird thing was that I halved the dough recipe because I didn’t have enough flour on hand for the full version of 6-8 pretzel dogs, but I still ended up with 6 pretzel dogs. Maybe I just didn’t use enough dough on each one? I’ll probably never know.
What I do know is that I will be making these again, and that I get to share the recipe with you! You can also check out other recipes from the book by looking at her blog tour list. OH, and to top it all off, you can enter to win a copy of your own in the widget at the end of this post!
