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!


  1. <----scared by Pinterest.
    I really ought to give it another try. I think my problem was whenever I made something and someone was over they'd immediately reference something they saw on pinterest and how much nicer it was....

    but I can't blame Pinterest for that.

    those lemon cookies look divine, btw. :)

  2. I've tried pinterest but I do not think I'm using it to its fullest potential. I look forward to seeing how you use it!! It might help me.

  3. Yum... lemon cookies! Eeeew, spinach puffs! And that's coming from a spinach lover! Haha!
