First thing first: my oven is fixed. Hip! Hip! Hooray!
Second thing second: Because I’ve been without my oven for longer than I care to think about, I was anxious to use it. I mean any girl on Pinterest in her right mind finds 627 recipes a week to pin. And usually, I’m a pretty good discerner of Pinterest recipes. It’s really not all that hard. Butter? It will be delicious. Cream? You betcha. Cheese and bacon together? Well, that’s just a no-brainer.
But sometimes, I bomb. And last night was one of those times. Maybe it wasn’t a big-time bomb, but it definitely wasn’t a win either. I tried the Pizza Hut Pan Pizza copycat recipe. They looked good (although the photo leaves a lot to be desired.) But the taste was just not the same. I need to do some tweaking and if it works, I’ll let you know.
And this is where I talk about a cool thing that one of my friends started doing and I copied. Good ideas are meant to be copied, right?!
So my friend, Amanda, started re-pinning recipes that she had tried to a “Food Review” board. She would try a recipe and re-pin it there, writing a review of that recipe. Brilliant! Not to mention she’s a good cook. So I copied. My food review board is called “Food I’ve Made” so if you follow me on Pinterest, keep an eye on that board.
Which leads me to publicly state that I need to organize my Pinterest boards. A tip: If you are new to Pinterest, don’t worry about having too many boards. I have a board called “Food.” Now THAT’S descriptive. Try to be more organized than me. It won’t be hard.
