Mixed-Bag Mondays: Sweet and Savory

I haven’t shared a hits and misses for awhile. And when I say “hits” I would say these are “okays” and “mehs” that I made in the winter. Let’s start with a meal that could be fine but it was a bit too salty for me.

Almond Butter Pretzel Pie

I know it isn’t Pi Day yet, but consider this your Pi Day post since it is on a weekend this year.

And I would still like to try other options in the future with coconut milk, but this was a great first attempt. The Fudgelet and Chiplet were both big fans.
