Pretzel Linzers

Smitten Kitchen has a new cookbook out! I’ve really tried to curtail my cookbook acquisitions over the last couple of years, but obviously I needed to have this one. I bought it when I went to see Deb on her cookbook tour back in October. She didn’t do an interview or Q&A like last time, […]
