There were several reasons why I didn't want to join Pinterest. The first was that I didn't need anymore ideas spinning around in my head of things that I would like to try. Trust me...I have a LOT of ideas that are spinning around in my head. It is just a matter of finding time to try out some of these cool things. I have found quiet a few recipes on Pinterest that I liked. I have tried 3 so far and have 2 more slated for this weekend. There are also a few organizational things that I have tried. So here is a little recap of how Pinterest has inspired me to try new things:)
1. Spice clips!
I have quiet a few organizational issue in our kitchen, but one was the cabinet that stores our spices. I could never see what anything was, so I was constantly pulling out a few bottles before I actually got to the one I was looking for. There are many things that you can buy to organize spices, however I haven't found anything that would work for our space. Then I saw a little photo on Pinterest, there was no link attached, so I checked it out on Amazon. Got it in a few days and whoola!! Isn't it beautiful! Ok...cool!
Here is a link on Amazon. They do occasionally sell out...must be a popular item!
2. Peanut butter cup brownies
My husband says there is nothing wrong with a plain brownie...he is right...but I saw a yummy picture on Pinterest and had to try it. We have church potluck every Sunday, so I always have a good excuse for making sweets! These were snagged up quickly. You can get the recipe: HERE!
3. White Chicken Enchiladas
The picture is NOT mine.....the recipe and photographer can be found: HERE. My husband is not a fan of mush and didn't really like this recipe. I thought the sauce was decent, but the chicken needed a bit more pizzazz. I am not good with improvising on recipes...so I just followed the directions. Everyone raved about it, but it probably won't be making another appearance at our house anytime soon.
4. Slow cooker cream cheese chili
5. Ribbon organizer
HERE. I think it will work out well even though I am not finished with it yet...still need to cut down a dowl for it.
