Almondina Cookies and coffee
 
 
We all have those secret family recipes. You know the kind that only one or two people in the entire family know how to make? And they either make that dish for every single family gathering or they never ever make it? Well, Almondina cookies started out that way. 
 
Almondina cookies are made from a decades old family recipe, kept as a closely guarded secret by Grandma Dina. They’re thin and light, with quite the crispy crunch. Normally, I’m not a fan of crispy cookies, but these are different. Almondina cookies are jam-packed full of almonds and raisins. And they come in a myriad of flavors.

Pretzel Crisps are a Tasty Snack

Everything Pretzel Crisps

 

I love snacks.  Love them!  While I like cookies and stuff, I much prefer salty snacks like pretzels, crackers and chips.  You can add Pretzel Crisps to that list, as well. 

Pretzel Crisps are the best part of the pretzel.  You get all the good outside part without the huft and bulk of the bready part of the pretzel.  They’re thin and crispy, like a cracker.  You can eat them by the handful.  Or you can be graceful and have Pretzel Crisps with traditional toppings or dips.  I really like them with Hummus
