Embarrassing recipe: the back story

Over dinner on New Year's Day, the conversation turned to those Rolo Pretzel things I wrote about earlier.  One of the assembled mentioned that they are nearly crack-like in their appeal --it's not possible to have just one of them. One taste brings about a Rolo Pretzel madness and a compulsion to eat all of them. He then reminded me that the originator of the recipe was lost to the haze of actual addiction some years ago, the poor thing.

Anyhow, since it's a holiday weekend and I've granted myself a free pass to write about anything I bloody well please, here goes. The whole drug addiction thing reminded me of a video I came across a couple of weeks ago that I find hilarious. Tragedy begets comedy folks, it's a tale as old as time. Besides, this video stars none other than Kristin Chenoweth, one of my favorite stars of stage and screen.
