Fulfilling the pins

I reeeeeeally enjoy pinterest. Like really. Where else can you pin a website to go back to later, than pinterest?
I realize there are other ‘pinterest similar’ sites out there but pinterest is the only way to go…

I have currently 90 recipe pins in my ‘yummy foods’ board. A little much, don’t you think? Sadly, I wasn’t really making too many of them, but that has changed my friends!! I was on a quest to make very healthy {yet still delicious} recipes while with my love and I’m happy to say, I succeeded.

I made:
these kale chips from Clara Photo Blog that we seriously loved.

roasted broccoli from the lovely Carissa at lowercase letters. I made this with countless dinners and we loved it each and every time.

chicken w/artichoke hearts from Gina’s Skinny Taste blog…I’m pretty sure we’ve all heard of Gina’s tasty blog before. I also made her thai chicken and pineapple stir fry. Both were great but I did have to add more sauce to both as they were a little dry. Pretty sure that was because of something I did.
Oh and I forgot I made her crock pot kalua pork and it was absolutely delicious. She says to cook for 16 hours and thankfully I questioned this with everyone and they agreed it was way too long. So I did about 8-9 hours and it turned out perfectly!

kale, white bean, sausage soup from the dear Sam at Fitness Food and Faith. This was tasty!! G-man wanted spinach in it but I actually loved having the kale in there. He added his signature Tabasco to it, but I had it as is and will be making it this week again for myself!

the loaded bowl from Clean Eating Machine blog. This WAS delicious!! G-man and I loved this. Its so colorful and yummy!

aaaand finally PB 'nana cream bites from Nom Nom Nom. These didn’t work exactly. The chocolate wouldn’t harden at all, but still tasted alright.

I’ve also been dying for Bumble and Bumble’s Surf Spray. Once I found a ‘make your own’ Surf Spray, I couldn’t wait to make it. The first time I used my own spray, I used a blow dryer and it didn’t work that well. I was so disappointed. But I thought I’d give it another go and let it air dry on its own and it worked great! I love this stuff!

Hi, ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmm I am about to show my ignorance but what is "surf spray"?

Natalie said...

Sadly, I'm really bad at getting around to my recipes and DIY's on Pintrest, but I'm thinking when summer break comes, I'll have to change that!

Tatiana said...

I love that place! I do make a lot of things that I see on there as well. It's genius, really.
AND all your food talk has got me starving!

LeAnna said...

I am so hungry, everything sounds amazing. I try a lot of what I pin and then transfer it to a board of "tried and loved" things. Great way to keep track! Glad to hear you liked the surf spray, I want to make some this summer.

Christina said...

I love pinterest. My bangs today are a result of one of my pins there. It is my goal to start using more of the ideas I've pinned there!

Haha, I'm with Lisa: what is surf spray?

The chicken with artichoke hearts looks yummy!

Pinterest is so addicting. I get caught up in it so easily but I look at it as "research". It's somewhat true, no?
