    Sure, we go nuts for vintage eBay scores and the latest runway trends, but there's nothing that stops R29ers dead in their tracks faster than some good ol' food porn. So, when Erica and Lauren of HonestlyWTF launched their equally delicious blog, HonestlyYUM, we just had to drop everything. Each week, we'll spotlight their creative concoctions. Go ahead, try to look away — we dare you.

    There are some food trends that I can totally get on board with. Pretzel burger buns is one of them. As a salt addict, I’ve always loved pretzels with their big flecks of salt and chewy dough. This recipe is a riff on an incredible German pretzel recipe by Hans Röckenwagner, owner of one of my favorite bakeries in Santa Monica.

    Traditionally, pretzels are soaked in a lye solution before they’re baked, but I wasn’t too keen on bringing corrosive chemicals and wearing safety goggles in making these pretzel buns. Luckily, you can substitute the lye solution with baking soda and water. I also love the addition of caraway seeds on pretzels!
