Beer Pretzels and Cheese Dip

Beer Pretzels with Cheese Dip

It’s the final week of Comfort Food Month!  To end the month in a manner fitting with the spirit, I decided to bring you a treat that hits a few different comforts: soft beer pretzels and beer cheese dip.  We’ve got chewy bread, gooey cheese, salt and spices, and a hint of beer.  What more could you need?

Bagel Dogs

Bagel Dogs

February is notoriously cold and dreary in Cleveland, so I am making the executive decision to declare it comfort food month at I Wanna Bake!  I’ve already got a handful of recipes for comfort food on here, but I decided to go all in this month and focus on satisfying calorie bombs.  To kick things off, I’ve made for you a snack my husband and in-laws introduced me to: bagel dogs.

Chili Cheese Dip

Chili Cheese Dip

Happy New Year!  I hope 2017 is off to a good start.  I know everyone has probably made resolutions that might not fit with today’s bakeventure (which is basically three layers of calorie overload), but sometimes you just need a little comfort food.  Enter: chili cheese dip!

Pickle Bagels

Pickle Bagels

Yes, you read that right: pickle bagels.  I promise, I haven’t gone off the deep end (no more than usual, anyway).  Those of you who follow I Wanna Bake on Facebook might recall seeing Tasting Table’s recipe for pickle juice bread.  I was quite enamored of the idea or pickle-flavored bread, and I knew it would have to be recreated in some fashion.  Serendipitously, I still had the thought on my mind when I was going through one of my periodic musings on bagels ( like ya’ do).  In that moment, the pickle bagel was born.

Buffalo Chex Mix

Buffalo Chex Mix

Aah, Chex Party Mix.  How I love you so.  In my mind, it’s not a holiday celebration without the Chex mix.  Since the Super Bowl is akin to a holiday to many people, I decided to put a (mildly spicy) spin on a beloved classic in its honor.  Admittedly, I couldn’t care less about football and usually don’t watch the Super Bowl, but I am quite an appreciator of snacks, so the day’s not all bad in my book.  If you’re looking for a fun party snack, look no further!

Spanish Pork Roulade

Spanish Pork Roulade

I got knocked off my feet last week by a particularly nasty cold, so I was in no shape to get very far out of bed, much less bake anything this weekend.  Fortunately, I’ve been sitting on the recipe for this Spanish pork roulade I invented since last November.  I made it for the first time for a dinner party (flying blind is a nerve-wracking thing to do), and I thought it was a success.  This was fortunate, considering I made way too much and was eating leftovers for weeks.

Buffalo Bagel Chips

Buffalo Bagel Chips

Sorry for the delay today!  Life got in the way a bit this week, so I hadn’t had the usual time to devote to writing.  Fear not, though.  Today I bring you Buffalo Bagel Chips!  (Or at least the directions to make your own, I wasn’t planning on hand-delivering bagel chips to all my readers, though you are all lovely.)  This week’s post was originally supposed to be about cinnamon pie, but that was a 2-day disaster, so bagel chips it is.
