Pinterest Picks & Recipes
I’m heading out on a friend’s boat for the 4th of July. I want to bring something fun, but it can’t be melty and must be easy to transport. I found some pretty sprinkly cookies on Pinterest and I’ll be making those today. A full report on my progress tomorrow.
But all this pinning has me thinking.. Pinterest is the devil when you’re hungry. Everything on that food and drink tab, and I mean EVERYTHING, looks beyond incredible (and I must have the mentality of a 12-year-old because if it has sprinkles, I’ll repin it).
Question is, how many of those are actually as good or easy as they claim to be? I’ve never been a wiz in the kitchen (I once started not one, but two fires during the preparation of one meal). I do thank Pinterest for re-sparking my interest in cooking. I’ve tried quite a few things and had some big wins. I’m going to share those with you, because as you know, wading through the pages and pages of pins can be overwhelming.
Here are my keepers:
- Creamy Taco Mac (http://pinterest.com/pin/263460646921184035/) It’s not healthy by any means, but it’s easy, tasty and makes a ton so you have lunch for a week!
- Cake Batter Truffles (http://pinterest.com/pin/263460646921765809/) These are darling lil treats. They’re pretty easy and so so good. But they’re rich. Have any more than two and you WILL get a stomach ache
- Swedish Meatballs (http://pinterest.com/pin/263460646921073496/) This was easy and tasty. Thumbs up
- Hopefully I’ll be adding Funfettie Cookies to this list soon. Here’s the one I’m trying today: http://pinterest.com/pin/263460646921765889/
