I love Pinterest. It took me awhile to get the hang of things and to understand what it's all about (I'm slow sometimes). But now I love it and check in at least once a day.
Some people are intimated by it, or think less of themselves after visiting. They feel like they don't measure up because of all the pretty things there; things they can't make or don't have time to make.
But not me. I go there to see some pretty craft eye candy; or check out new recipes to try; or to get inspiration for things to make with Ree. I like how it's a place to keep all the ideas I want to try "someday" organized. With nice pictures to remind me of them.
My goal has been to try and do at least one of the things I've pinned a week. It's not going so bad. This week I made a few things from the food board.
These lemon cookies are THE. BEST. COOKIE I've ever had. Seriously. I made them as a snack for my husband to bring to work on his birthday. I made them at my mom's house and we had to force ourselves to stop eating them or he wouldn't have gotten any. I had to hide them on myself when I got home. He ate them and told me "I can't believe I've lived my whole life without these cookies". I feel the same way.
He made me promise to make them at least once a month. I can do that. They are easy and quick and did I mention delicious?
These spinach balls on the other hand....we each took a bite & spit it in the trash. Not very good. I followed the recipe to a T but they came out dry and blah. I'll stick to my own spinach puff recipe.
I have tons of other yummy looking recipes pinned I want to try in the future. As well as boards full of other pretty things. Come on over & join me! It's fun!
