    Since we live in South Jersey (NJ) we have all been spoiled by the best soft pretzels just across the Delaware River in Philadelphia. And now we can have them any time and any where! Thanks oneyettwo!


<style> body {background: url(""); background-repeat: repeat; } </style> I'm a recent graduate from the Atlantic Cape Community College's Academy of Culinary Arts. I absolutely love food, always have. Over the years my tastes of expanded and developed. I find constantly that something I did not like at one point I suddenly love. Food is my life needless to say. I have a cat named Black Jack. He is the craziest cat I have ever met and super adorable. I also love to travel, read, watch movies, and just goof off. I admit I am a procrastinator and have put off many things to the last minute, however my recent experience in Ohio has helped me to mature more. Well that's enough about me. <img src=""> <img src=""> <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket">
