Spicy Buffalo Pretzels

Buffalo Pretzels

My husband is from a small town near Buffalo, NY so he brought his love of wings into our family when we were married.  I love Buffalo wing sauce with a passion, but the actual chicken wings, eh, I’m not a huge fan.  I’ve managed to find ways to keep both of us happy by […]

Frozen Chocolate Banana Bites
