Pinterest success stories

25 Feb

It’s true.

I spend a lot of time flipping though the pages of Pinterest. I pin A LOT of things. A. LOT. And every once in a while, I actually do something with those pins!!

Sometimes they fail and sometimes they work wonderfully and I wonder how I lived the first 35 years of my life without knowing, doing or making this.

Last April, I tried the rainbow cakes in a jar for my daughters birthday and they were so impressive. People thought I was something else. I, of course, pretended it was very difficult and soaked up all the credit. Cuz why wouldn’t I?

As you can see they are visually stunning and tasted wonderful too. I will make these again.


Low fat coffee creamer. I tried the recipe for homemade French vanilla coffee creamer and while it wasn’t that bad, it wasn’t all good either. It actually had a very sweet and awkward aftertaste that I didn’t care for. I actually didn’t end up using it all. It could be because I’m not really a coffee drinker and this wasn’t enought to convert me.

Homemade English muffins .
These my friend were absolutely amazing. They took awhile, in between waiting for them to ri a couple of time and rolling them out and baking, but not a lot of work. Just more time. But they turned out so amazingly soft and fluffy, just like the ones you buy in the store. You can make them any size you like and they tasted so good. These will finitely be made again.

Tomato Slices

These were delicious and so very simple to make. Im always looking for new ways to serve up a vegetable with supper and suprisingly my little one enjoyed these too. My two oldest are past the point of trying with them. I just have to wait until they decide to try things on their own. These would be extra sweet and tangy in the fall with fresh garden tomatoes.

I just made these tonite and again am soo impressed. These were a-mazing!! It tasted like pizza without the carbs. Not that I care about carbs or anything, but I will pretend I do on nights that I make these! Again, with a fresh harvest of zucchini and garden tomatoes, this is going to be unbelievable. Speaking of garden zucchini and pinterest recipes, when I was overwhelmed with zucchini last fall, I turned to Pinterest and found quite a few recipes for what I previously thought was only good for chocolate zucchini cake. Which by the way, is still a great use!!
