I adore Pinterest! I think if I let myself I could spend all day on the site. If you haven’t heard of Pinterest let me tell you about it. It is an online pinboard that lets you create boards that interest you. You pin things that other people have pinned on the site. It feels a bit like Show and Share in my preschool classroom. When I see something I like I can pin it to a board to remember it. My two boards that I pin to daily are Recipes and School Ideas. This weekend I decided to tackle my recipe board.
1. Nutella Puppy Chow- AMAZING! I ended up convincing a friend to make this with me on Saturday morning. We shared it with our friends after our Christmas Eve dinner of Chinese food.
2. Cinnamon Toast Crunch Rice Krispy Treats- two great combinations! Who doesn’t love rice krispy treats + Cinnamon Toast Crunch? This was an easy recipe that you could truly tailor to your choice of favorite cereal.
3. Rainbow Pinwheel Cookies- this was my only recipe that I feel I did not accomplish. It could not be easier to make. ( one box cookie mix, food coloring, and sprinkles) I made the cookies and then divided the dough up into bowls so I could tint it. After tinting I followed the directions and grabbed some dough from each bowl and made the multi colored balls. Then I had trouble.. I could not get the dough to roll into a snake. I might try this recipe again but with homemade sugar cookie dough and not a boxed mix.
Also I couldn’t end this post by not showing off the cutest picture taken this weekend. Leo went for a haircut this weekend at Bubbly Paws. When I picked him up they had attached this handsome Bowtie to his collar.
