    1. I promise — making crackers was super easy! I almost didn’t do it because I was short on energy and time, but was pleasantly surprised at how quickly and easily they came together.

    2. For a less healthy cracker recipe, but still easy (and delicious), see Mark Bittman’s recipe: http://www.nytimes.com/2009/02/04/dining/041mrex-web.html?ref=dining
      And Smitten Kitchen has her own version of Bittman’s: http://smittenkitchen.com/2009/12/parmesan-cream-crackers/
