Today is National Pretzel Day plus April is National Soft Pretzel Month.  You can find some great recipes here to make your own, or just enjoy a bag of ready-made pretzels with this herb and mustard dip:

Hodgepodge Herb Pretzel Dip:  Combine 8 ounces of softened cream cheese with 1Tbs Hodgepodge Herb gourmet blend, 2tsp prepared brown mustard and 2-3tsp milk for the desired consistency.  Refrigerate overnight.



1Tbs basil, chili powder, chives, marjoram, oregano,
          parsley, rosemary, garlic
& thyme

1 ½ tsp tarragon, dill weed, sage & savory

1 tsp ground allspice and ginger
          Combine and grind, then stored in an airtight container.




Plus here are a couple other recipes that use the same gourmet blend:

Hodgepodge Herb Cheese Pinwheels:   Combine 8 ounces softened cream cheese, 3Tbs roasted garlic and 1Tbs Hodgepodge Herb gourmet blend.    Spread onto 4 tortillas then top with fresh spinach leaves, roll up, wrap in plastic and refrigerate at least 30 mins. or overnight.  Cut into 1 inch slices.

Hodgepodge Herb Spread:  Combine 8 ounces of softened cream cheese, 4oz grated cheddar cheese, 4oz crumbled blue cheese, 1Tbs milk and 1Tbs Hodgepodge Herb gourmet blend.  Form into a ball and chill overnight.  




Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart,

as working for the Lord, not for men.”

Colossians 3:23
