duh, pinning

I have totally been sucked into the pinterest vortex.  I like it so much better than google+, which for the record makes no sense to me.  A second facebook? Why?

I love all the arts and crafts ideas.  I love the fashion, though it does make me wish I would actually follow through with my plans to excercise more often!

I don't like all the stupid Kate Middleton references.  Why would anyone want to act like her?  What is her function?  Does no one remember 2nd grade history class.  The monarchy is bad!  I do like all the great quotes and poems that show up.  The party ideas are great and so are the baby ideas.

The thing I really love and actually use are the ideas about food!!  I've actually been excited about cooking dinner lately.  Though still having a hard time getting jazzed up about grocery shopping and cleaning up.

Here are my top finds:

I make these almost twice a week now.  Ryan and Avinash totally love them.  It is so simple and comes out perfectly every time.  All it takes is a big dutch oven, set on med-high.  Add lots of butter and crushed garlic.  Throw in fingerling potatoes, cover and turn down to low in a few minutes.  Sea salt and fresh pepper. The potatoes are done in twenty minutes, crispy skin on the outside and moist potato on the inside.  Heaven.

This one was a bit dangerous.  My health goals veered way off track after discovering this one.  One bowl, two serving cupcake recipe.  So easy and so delicious.  I loved adding tons of blueberries to mine too.  Ahh.

Quinoa burger. You should have seen the scowl on Ryan's face when I told him what I made for dinner. Turned out he loved it, ha! And I didn't even call him tunechanger for that one. Apparently it is second only to Shake Shack. I'll take that. The great part is the edges of the burger get all crispy and the cheesy is all gooey and melty. I add methi to mine and omit the splenda (holy aftertaste batman!). Also, cooked in ghee. I recommend serving it on a brioche bun.

Wilted Radicchio and Escarole Salad with Barley and Roasted Pear. I added garlic to mine of course. And roasted the pears in butter.
Another shockingly well recieved dinner. Both boys loved it. A salad. With barley. Will wonders never cease?


  1. You and I are of one mind when it comes to Pinterest, I think, and I'm with you on the whole Will-and-Kate thing. I just don't get it. It's the same with Google+. I started an account, at my husband's request, but I haven't touched it since the day I opened it. Those dishes look amazing. I'm going to have to try those potatoes, for sure.

  2. oh my your Quinoa burger looks sooooo good, I just want to reach in and grab it!! :) Michelle
