Pinterest Revisited

Still pinning away here! Today I wanted to share a few of my recent pins from some of my favorite boards.
Plus, I have two reviews of the recipes I made this past week from pins. :)

Becky's fun little motivational mini was the last thing I posted on my Scrapbook Inspiration board.
The inside is so cute!
I pinned this on my What to Wear board not because I would wear it, but because I love it on her! I love the color and she looks good in everything she wears! 
This photo is on my I Want to Go There board. It's the 5 star Shangri-La's Villingili Resort and Spa. I mean it looks amazing right?
My Healthy Living board is slowly collecting lots of ideas that I find inspiring as I try to take little steps to make this my healthiest year yet! I love this idea of adding frozen berries to my water bottle.

And now for the recipes!

Shredded Beef Tacos off my Food board. These I liked and I would definitely make again! Plus it was a nice easy recipe because they are made in the crock pot.
Homemade Cosmic Brownies from my Sweet Treats board. They are supposed to be an accurate stand in for those Little Debbie snack cake brownies which Erin loves. But as I am trying to move us away from processed foods the ingredient list on those brownies are just a little too long for my comfort. So this Pinterest recipe looked like a fun idea.
Unfortunately they are "not just like the real thing" as promised, and a little more labor intensive then planned. I'm not saying they are terrible. They just do not taste like "cosmic brownies" at all, and have more of a dark chocolate taste to them according to Evan. Erin did not like the ganache on top, so I have a feeling these won't cut it for a lunch box treat this week. Which is a bummer because I didn't buy anything else as a back up.

I am always looking for good recipes.
If you have any food boards on Pinterest, feel free to give me a link in the comments below.


  1. I love Kate and her style too!! She does always look amazing!! I have always wanted to stay in one of those resorts on the water!!! That's a bummer about the cosmic brownies :( super cool you pinned my little book!!

  2. That resort looks amazing! Also good in water is cucumber, yum! :)

  3. I would go to that resort in a heartbeat! Amazing! I love adding a mango pit to a pitcher of water. Yum! Sorry the brownies didn't work out. Those are so popular at Alexa's school too.

  4. Some great pins here...
    I love Kates dress. I love the colour and the style. When i was younger and much slimmer, That crossover off the shoulder style was my fave for a formal occasion. Wish i looked like her in them though!!!

  5. Ah I too think the Duchess of Cambridge has a great sense of style. Those snack cakes look tasty but I try not to pin too much on the food boards or I would be drooling every time I looked at it. I do collect recipes though, I actually email them to myself at home then I can move them to a keeper folder if they are worth repeating otherwise they get deleted. I then print and assemble in a binder for easy reference.

  6. I love them all!! Love Princess Kate's dress!!!!!!!

  7. Great pins!!!
    I have a food board….I try to get easy recipes as it is not my favourite activity ;)
    Here is my board, I noticed I have 166 pins….I wonder how many I have actually tried, lol.

  8. Fun to see some of your pins! I wish I had good recipes -- my least inspired part of my life. Thankfully my husband does most of the cooking.

  9. Your pin pictures are wonderful. Kate's dress really is gorgeous. I skipped over the brownies as I am trying to diet..... not very successfully it seems... Hugs, Anne xx

  10. Oh, take me away to that I Want To Go There photo!
    I haven't been pinning much lately, but I have tons of pins, and tons of food pins. One of my favorites is the Olive Garden knock-off Zuppa Toscana, on my Recipes I've Tried Board. ;)

  11. Ummmm - save me a spot at the spa!
    Thank you for your recipe shares.
    I hope you are all doing well.

  12. Great pins! The brownies sure look cosmic!
