Unless you are being held prisoner in a basement or something, I’m sure you have either heard of Pinterest or have already started pinning your heart out. I admit it, I’m a serial pinner. Like a pin hoarder. But, I am happy to report that I have actually made some things I’ve seen on there. I’m even happier to report that I’ve only had one REALLY EPIC FAIL: dehydrated strawberries in the oven. Don’t believe the pictures, people! Anyway, I thought I’d share a few of the ones I have tried and liked. I’ve linked to the pin on my board so you can check out the recipes if you like.
We really liked these. Mr. Foodie doesn’t like brownies (I know, right?) so these really worked for him. They are really heavy and rich, which, in this case, is a good, good thing…
Let me just say that I’m ALWAYS on the hunt for the best banana bar/cake. I think this is my favorite banana anything recipe. I loved this and if you like banana stuff, you will too! Try it, it’s a keeper!
Pictured is a strawberry egg cream I made for Mr. Foodie, which he loved. I made a chocolate one for myself. I personally think they are kind of weird. It’s not that they taste bad or anything, it’s just a weird mouth experience to me. I’m expecting creamy, milky goodness and am met with sparkly, carbonation. It’s unexpected so I’m not sure how I feel about Egg Creams. Mr. Foodie is sold on them, however, so they will be making appearances in the house!
Donuts out of canned biscuits? Say it ain’t so? Oh, it is. And they are really good! We tried some dipped in sugar and some in cinnamon sugar. We much preferred the ones dipped in plain sugar. These make some tasty, light donuts. Foodie Jr. and I gobbled them up. They are a little reminiscent of malasadas to me, a Portuguese donut.
