A Summer of Pinning

I've been kind of a lazy ass this summer.  But I still managed to get my pin on.  Get it guuuurl.

Baked it...

These were delish.  Really tasted like a peanut butter cup, but it wasn't as smooth.  Maybe next time I'll use an electric mixer.



This was really yummy.  Took a bit more time than I usually spend on a breakfast, but it was very good and cakey.



I prefer to keep my desserts full fat minus the fruit but my friends gobbled these up.



When I made these they looked like rolled up shit balls but they tasted pretty damn good.  I'm a terrible presenter of baked goods btw.



These were really really good a real crowd pleaser.  My father doesn't really like cake, so I made these instead for his birthday dinner.



Things I cooked...

This is my new go-to for meal planning and recipes. Love it!



This was so good that Andy and I made ourselves sick off of it.  It's really heavy, but it's something I will devour the twice a year I allow myself to make it.



This is a really simple yet yummy dish.



This was so well loved that I was asked to make it 3 times in one week.



I'd entertain with this meal for sure.



This was way too citrusy and orangey for me.  No one was really nuts about it.  It looks like it would be crunchy and have a General Tso's chicken feel to it, but it really just doesn't.



This is like a gussied up version of hamburger helper.  It's a little bit white trash so it's right up my alley.



We top ours with a bit of creamy blue cheese dressing.  So good.



This is a staple in our house.  I'll make it like every other week and no one ever gets sick of it.



This nearly put me into a sugar coma, but it was well worth it.



Yeah buddy.



What I crafted...

I'm craft handicapped, but this was super easy and she loves it.  The only thing is is that it's over in a hot minute so you have to do it over and over and over.



This is perfect for people like me.  We've used a few of these crafts like the paper plate tamborines and the cereal necklace.  But I'm telling you when I see words like "mod podge" and "glue gun" I high tail it right out of there.



I did this on construction paper because I don't keep canvas in the house.



This is the easiest flipping craft/activity  you'll ever do.



This failed.  I tried to just half the recipe because I ran out of flour and I just couldn't get the consistency right.  It wound up being a hot mess on my deck.



Fitness...

I totally did this.  I still don't look like those models.  It should specifically say in the pin that the exercise is not to be combined with grilled cheese sandwiches and beer.



Well this is pretty much a big old pat on the back from myself to myself for actually following through with about 3% of my pins.

I'm impressed with what you've done. I think the only thing I've ever made from one of my pins is sangria.

But I think I might try some of these.

That is still many more than what I have done. We also tried the crock pot chicken and thought it was a fail; that pin was removed from my board. It's too hot now to turn on our oven so I haven't even cooked anything. Hopefully I'll follow through with some pins for the holidays!
