Home Pins I've Done

Pins for the home I've attempted...

This worked... but I don't know if there is a better way to break open the thick plastic.

I like that my drawer space if saved by putting my tights on a hanger!

I've done this with all of the appliances we got for our wedding, so we don't have any receipts to go with it, but I still think it's a great idea to keep them organized and out of the way.

I liked this sugar scrub, but I think it made too much, perhaps I could put it in a jar and mix it up again for future reference.

I did this but just used my acetone on a cotton ball and it came off right away!!

Food Pins I've tried

Food Pins I've made

I enjoyed this Quesadilla, my Husband and I are obsessed with Buffalo wings right now... so this was an obvious choice for us! I was unsure with the recipe because it doesn't have any measurements. I ended up doing a few tablespoons of ranch (And I only had spicy ranch on hand but I liked it!) and maybe a tablespoon on Frank's Red Hot sauce. Win!

These jalapeno poppers are amazing! Very light and not very spicy.

Grilled Mac and Cheese Sandwich... love it! I did this before I saw the pin! I also added hot sauce and a piece of ham.

I tried these but used olive oil... FAIL.

I loved these smashed potatoes! I haven't quite perfected how to smash them though.

Also tricky, but good too

I liked this sneaky way of adding vegetables in! It was difficult to cut for me and I wasn't sure how to make it keep it's shape.

Healthy way to satisfy your sweet tooth! I tried the chocolate one, loved it. I am considering trying another!

I made the apple peanut butter sandwich, I liked it but wished there was a way to keep my hands from getting all appley!

This shake is delicious, and my skeptic husband who hates cottage cheese and spinach liked it! I didn't add any of the obscure things and it turned out just fine!

I used regular protein powder, and the Husband is a BIG fan of this one! I could eat it every day. I love the cinnamon in it, and the peanut butter is awesome. I sometimes used regular peanut butter and thought that was good too! The husband likes to add coco powder to it as well.

Dessert Pins I've Tried

Dessert Pins I've tried (Since you are all wondering I'm sure...)

Holy Mother of Chocolate Cake (with hot coco instead of coffee, made too long ago to remember... need to make again!)
Insanely Chocolate Chocolate Cake (which I have renamed Snickerdoodle Cake [FAVORITE!])
Give Them What They Want Double Fudge Cake (I liked the pepper in here and that's why I wanted to try it. It ends up being very fudgy which I realize is in the title... but I wasn't expecting.)

I liked this fruit dip, it was light and peanut buttery enough, but I think I added some more powdered sugar to bump up the flavor a little more.

I love Snicker Salad! I also like to add more things... like Rolo's and Milky Ways.

Slutty Brownies... These are decadent! Super good though... I made everything by scratch so it took forever and I kind of wished I had had box mixes to speed up the time spent making these.

I liked these, but for me the flavor wasn't there. Maybe if I added some vanilla extract? I don't know. My aunt and Husband both thought they could taste the cake batter... but I wanted more! I think the sprinkles are fun, but I would add them after you have poured the rice krispies out and then pat the sprinkles on top.

This pumpkin dip is a great thing for fall! I'd maybe also add some caramel on top!

I made this recipe! And love the cookies!

I made these with Dr Pepper and enjoyed them, they are more porous than dense which is more typical for brownies.

I loved making my own marshmallows! They are messy and I don't know how someone would use a cookie cutter and get them to come out so well... but I loved it! They are SOO fluffy!

I made some form of these bacon chocolate chip cookies. They weren't bad. I would forget they had bacon until I bit into a chocolate chip and it was chewy.
