Here's my recipe for pretzel bagels. They're a mix between bagels and pretzels. They have that nice pretzel crust taste along with the soft chewy bagel inside. These were great for sandwiches.

I had always wanted to make bagels. A couple of weeks earlier I wound up making pretzels with my girlfriend's daughter who got the cooking bug. I realized the recipes and methods were fairly similar so I improvised this version so I could get the best of both worlds.

Baking isn't my strong point. This was the first time I tried to make something new without seeing if there were any recipes online. I'm quite happy with how they came out.

I started camping again recently and I wanted to know if I could use charcoal instead of firewood to cook with in the park provided fire rings in my state parks.  The short answer is in my home state of NJ it's permissible to use charcoal instead of firewood in the fire rings. For your own location you might want to confirm with your park rangers. The rest of this article will go over why and how to use charcoal in a fire ring instead of firewood.

These low fat, low cost, honey-nut, Greek Yogurt cups are a great, high protein snack. These are made with homemade yogurt.

I go through a lot of Greek yogurt every week and it's not cheap to buy as much as I eat so I wind up making my own which brings the cost of these cups down to $0.50 each. If you buy plain, non-fat Greek Yogurt instead the price almost doubles. For me that amounts to a savings of almost $300 a year for all my yogurt needs. I'll included a quick guide to making your own Greek yogurt at the end of this recipe. It's really not that hard and you probably have all the tools you'll need to make it yourself.

Now on to the Greek yogurt snack cups.

A protein packed, low-fat, fiber-rich and flavorful overnight oats recipe that helps me start off the day on the right foot. This is a complete breakfast for me.

There is a little bit of costs to get you started if you don't have food storage containers to prep in advance but overall it costs me about $2.21 per serving. The initial cost seems high because some of the ingredients are expensive but they will make more than one 8 serving batch. A 42 oz container of oats and bag of flax seed will make almost 4 batches . A 6oz bag of nuts will make 3 batches. The protein powder if only used for the oats will make over 5 batches. Every time you make a batch though you'll want to get milk, frozen berries and Greek yogurt.
