Pinterest Palooza!

July 23, 2013

Oh my!  Has it really been two weeks since a post?  Sorry about that.  I have so many things to share with you all, but every time I sit down to write, it seems I am distracted by something: an itchy dog, a leaking tub, a too humid basement that decided to grow mold (EWWW!), name changes, laundry, and now, a Royal Baby!  So many distractions!  While I’m working through this writer’s block though, I thought I’d share some of the recipes and kitchen fun that I’ve been diggin’ on Pinterest lately.

  Recipe Tea Towels

1. I nearly died when I saw these on http://blog.spoonflower.com/ The thought of having my mum’s hand written recipes blown – up onto adorable kitchen towels was perfect. Any way to always have her presence in my kitchen, is always a win with me.  Wouldn’t they make amazing gifts too?  I mean, how fun would these be for a bridal shower??  I keep stalling on making these… now that it’s summer, perhaps the time has come!

2. Oh.my.word.  This was so easy and so yummy.  I really enjoy Baked From a Box because well, who doesn’t like recipes that start with a box of cake mix?  For this fudge, I used star shaped confetti sprinkles- how fun!  Undoubtedly, my new favorite birthday treat for friends, coworkers, and family!

 
3. I am IN LOVE with these sweet little decals from The Painted Hive.  My current canisters are clear squares, and I am so excited to spruce them up with these little babies.  Best of all- FREE PRINTABLE.  Swing by her site and scope out all of her awesome ideas- save yourself a few hours and a cup of tea though, because honestly, you’ll be there all night!
 

4. Made this chicken last night for dinner…and darling husband ate the leftovers FOR BREAKFAST!!  Insanely good…”put into weekly rotation” good.  Check out this recipe, along with others, at : Rock Recipes.

5. This food and wine pairing cheat sheet is now printed and inside my recipe book.  This way, I can feel fancy pants when people come over!  Print yours out!

 

 
6. Two words- Done, and Done.  This copycat recipe is spot on!  It’s possible that I’m currently drinking this in my PJ’s while getting Royal Baby updates.  You’ll never know for sure… Swing by Kelly Elizabeth’s  for more neat stuff. 
 
7. Three Beans in a Pod will be the reason I learn how to knit and crochet.  I will learn just so I can make these for EVERY ONE I know.  I love them.  They make me want hot chocolate.  In July.  When it’s 95 degrees.   Her whole blog is pretty fab.  I may have to take up knitting…

Then again, maybe one project at a time.

Enjoy, and until next time,

Happy Eating!
