I found the recipe at Say Yes, although I didn't use any red or pink salt. I just used regular sea salt on half of the pretzels. I left the other half unsalted, and have some butter, cinnamon, and sugar plans for them. Although the salted hearts would have been excellent with some warm cheese dip, they were also good on their own. I took a plate full to Jona's daycare so he could share with his friends.
In addition to sharing baked goods with the ones I love, I think Valentine's Day is also a great time to share with the community around you. One way I like to share is by participating in food drives and collections that my church puts together to give to those in need here in Kansas City. Another organization that's close to my heart is the Great Plains SPCA, a local no-kill animal shelter. As an adopted-dog mom, I can't say enough about how much I love my rescue-pup, Ellie. The Greater Kansas City Community Foundation is giving away a $250 Giving Card to be redeemed at any charity, and I'd love to win and share that money with the Great Plains SPCA. (Want to enter? Just go here and share the love to enter by tomorrow, February 14th.)
Have you made anything yummy lately? I'm going to do another Weekly Eats linkup on Friday, February 27. I'd love it if you shared your kitchen creations!
