Pinterest Gone Wrong . . . or Right?

Standard

Have you ever tried to recreate some amazing DIY (do it yourself) project you found on Pinterest? Did you fail miserably? Or maybe you are one of the few who actually replicated that perfectly complicated gluten free, lactose free brownies that you just had to make . . . Kudos!

Just as many of you do, I find myself scrolling through Pinterest whenever I want a new idea or inspiration for creating something whether it be food or decorations. For instance, I wanted to make sugar skull cookies for an event I was hosting, so I scoured Pinterest in search of sugar skull cookie inspiration and found this:

Plain Old Granola

Standard

So making a healthy snack can be really tough when you’re a picky eater, like myself. BUT I have found a snack that almost anyone likes… granola! Granola is one of those versatile foods that you can eat hot, cold, or in a drink (like a smoothie if you’re thinking I’m crazy). As plain and bland as granola can be, it is a great addition to so many snacks.

Personally, I eat granola as a topping to a parfait-like snack that I concocted last year. My snack consists of:

Buffalo Chicken Pizza

… or the devil. Nothing makes me more sick than buffalo chicken pizza, BUT it’s just so good. Sometimes it’s hard for those of us with sensitive stomachs to eat all of that hot sauce, cheese, bread, or even chicken if you are vegetarian. We need to remember that there are substitutions we can make for any of these ingredients. You just need to look for other recipes and think outside of the box!

My mouth is watering thinking about how delicious this pizza tasted. It was a homemade buffalo chicken pizza, made by my dad. He used fresh dough, grilled chicken, hot sauce, and mozzarella cheese. Then, I proceeded to dip each slice of my pizza into ranch dressing… YUM! I need to learn his exact recipe so I can share it with you all.

Cheesy Goodness

Standard

Yummy grilled cheese with tomato soup is an easy, cheap meal that almost anyone can make. I got all of my ingredients at Walmart, all THREE of my ingredients. It cost less than $10 for multiple meals. So I bought a loaf of bread, a package of cheese slices, and a few cans of Campbell’s tomato soup, since I don’t really have the time or skills to make my own.

I’m thinking I’ll make a plain old grilled cheese and eat it with my canned tomato soup, but instead I found this great recipe to make grilled cheese dippers! It took the same ingredients, but changed it around a little:

  1. Cut the crust off of 8 pieces of bread
  2. Use a rolling pin to roll them flat
  3. Put 1 slice of cheese on each piece of bread
  4. Roll up each piece of bread with the cheese on it and place it on a pan on top of the stove heated at medium
  5. Cook until light brown and flip each over until in looks light brown on both sides
  6. Simultaneously cook the tomato soup until it reaches a boil
  7. When they are both finished, pour the soup into two bowls and put the grilled cheese dippers on a plate and share with a friend!

A very delicious meal! Plus it was easy to make.
