Oh, pinterest.

For a while, I ignored the pinterest fad.
My sister kept telling me how addicting it was, & I knew I didn't have time to get addicted to something else.
But then I caved.
& She wasn't lying.
I think I spent several hours the first day just looking at pins & repinning.
I got so excited, I mean really...I was SO inspired.
Almost 3 weeks later & I'm still enjoying it.
I'm not as addicted as I was [I don't have time to be!], but I love getting new recipes, new home ideas, craft ideas, etc.

So here are some of the things I've tried:

This stuff was awesome [if you like spicy + seafood]. You could definitely tone down the heat [just don't add as much Sriracha] and I'm pretty sure this stuff would be just as good with chicken!

I love love love lo mein, & this was it's spicy cousin. Instead of angel hair pasta, I actually used chow mein noodles. Also, instead of red pepper flakes, I used ground red pepper. SUPER SPICY, just the way I like it. If you don't like real spicy food, stick w. pepper flakes & use less than 1tbls.

I've made crab rangoon so many times I can't count. It's always so delicious. The only way I've ever cooked it was by frying it. So, my inner wanna be health nut jumped at the chance to try it baked. DISASTER. Seriously. I know the filling was good. The wrappers just don't taste good to me baked. Maybe it's a texture thing, but it's most definitely a taste thing & it was NOT right. Try at your own risk.

It took me 3 different times to get this to work for me. Regardless, I now have cute nails. Even if they will only last a few days.

What are some things that you've seen on pinterest & actually tried? Did it turn out how you expected?

I loooooove Pinterest! It makes me want to simultaneously cook a gourmet meal and get out my glue gun for a craft project.

I know what you mean. I actually just posted on Facebook that I have a new obsession, not that I have time for one more.
I am a new follower coming on over from the giveaway at McCrenshaw's Newest Thoughts. Thanks for offering the giveaway.
