So I think that I just spent about an hour or so looking at all of your food blogs. They all look great Rose! I went ahead and printed out the recipe for this one and am making it this afternoon to take with me to a work BBQ. Anyways, just wanted to let you know that you're site (and cooking) look amazing! Tell Robert hello for us!

Rose, your recipe has been a hit with my family and friends. It actually led to a great bonding moment with my sister-in-law! My only note would be to make sure the cream cheese mixture is spread to the ends of the dish so the strawberry gelatin does not leak to the bottom and make the pretzels soggy!
