As you may or may not know, a website called Pinterest has slowly taken over the internet world. Especially among women. It is what you could call a visual "favorites" or "bookmarks" site. People use it for recipes, craft ideas, homeschool ideas, wedding and party planning, home decorating/design ideas....I have used it to make two "boards" to help friends plan parties and I am stewing ideas for each of the girls' next parties. And some just plain brilliant little tips. Like, if you put a wooden spoon on top of a pot of boiling water, it will never boil over. For real.
In short, I love it. And while I have hundreds of "pins", I'm determined to actually USE it, rather than just amass a huge collection of things I will never do.
I have already done some of the craft, homeschool ideas and I have made several recipes. Some good, some not so good, as you can imagine.
The other day, I tried the Crock Pot Baked Potato Soup. No good. Very flavorless and too much work to be a "crock pot meal".
I tried the Grilled Cheese Rollups with the soup. Now those were DELICIOUS. But lets face it: Cheese, bread, butter, not much could go wrong there. R said there might even be "too much cheese". And THAT is how you know a good recipe.
Today I made the Easy Caramels and the No Bake Granola Bars. I haven't tried either yet, but they both look delicious.
Go, check it out.
