Lemon Chiffon Pie with Pretzel Crust

This recipe for lemon chiffon pie is a version of an old classic. Tart lemony flavor that is not too sweet and not too heavy. I came across the recipe on Boulder Locavore. Her version is made with a cornflake crust that sounds amazing. I had pretzels on hand so that is what I decided to use for the crust. Pretzels and lemon chiffon? Yes, please.

Propane Tank Watermelons

It's prime camper time and I have had this project on my mind ever since we bought our little Jayco Kiwi travel trailer a few months ago. The propane tanks were ugly. I saw a picture online of someones clever idea to paint their gigantic home propane tank to look like a giant watermelon. It was so cute, so I figured I could do it too!

Schlotzsky's Style Buns

It's been awhile since I have posted anything. I have just been really busy with a vacation and getting ready for the summer garden. Today I really felt the need for a sandwich from Schlotzsky's Deli. Don't feel like driving there, so I will make my own! I worked at a Schlotzskys when I was in high school. I started out making the sandwiches and then graduated to baking the buns. This is my version. Theirs is a highly guarded secret that comes in a mix.
This recipe starts out very much like the famous no knead bread. I start the night before I have a day off. The dough sits overnight while the yeast works it's magic. It's really easy, and requires only 5 ingredients.
The downside? You need 2 small cake pans. This dough is really loose so it needs the support of a pan. I suppose you could make 1 giant bun in a 9 inch cake pan if you wanted to!
