So here is my take on Pinterest. When Pinterest was first becoming popular, I was pretty skeptical. How in the world would things that look that good be possible for anyone to make easily? After a few months, my crafting/foodie sides kicked in, and I decided that some of these things were ones that I had to try.
Some of my first Pinterest creations:
I had never made a cheesecake before Pinterest and I am so glad I had the guts to try it! So easy to make, especially in cupcake portions.
Who knew cupcake tins could be used for so much more than cakes and muffins before Pinterest? So helpful for portion control and something easy to eat!
Of course Pinterest is great for sharing great nail art ideas!
I love cheesecake! Another simple cheesecake recipe.
After mastering those creations, I decided to move forward and try a few harder ones:
Believe it or not, Pinterest taught me how to crochet and knit this past winter. Headbands are currently trending.
This heart wire ring was made simply with a short piece of wire!
I learned to sew at age nine when I got my first pair of ballet pointe shoes. After that, I learned how to use my grandma’s sewing machine. I stop sewing because I haven’t known what to make until I saw these easy instructions on Pinterest.
I love scrap booking and making cards. Pinterest took it to another level by giving me a step by step on how to put together all of my snail mail from the year.
Since I have moved into my own apartment in Boca Raton, Pinterest has taught me how to cook (well, some beginning stages at least). After cooking dinner tonight, I realized that without Pinterest, I would probably starve because all I knew how to make was pasta, ramen (yes, that’s a type of pasta), sandwiches and rice (thanks, Mom!). Yes, me, the biggest Food Network fan has no idea how to cook. I can watch as many episodes of Giada cooking as humanly possible, but I still don’t know how to cook. But because of Pinterest, I have made some of these creations, allowing me to channel my inner Bobby Flay:
Delicious Lowry’s seasoned potatoes and asparagus.
Everyone’s gotta have dessert right? I had never made rice krispy treats before Pinterest enticed me with these beauties.
One of my favorite vegetables is broccoli. These broccoli bites are the BEST, made with cheese, breadcrumbs and eggs.
Okay, so this is something I knew how to make before Pinterest.
Okay, this is another thing I knew how to make before Pinterest, thanks to my mother. Except this fried rice is unique and was made with bacon!
Not only have I found Pinterest to be great for my personal needs, such as eating, but it is also a wonderful resource for chapters to use for everything from event themes to decorations to favors. I hope you find the courage to try some Pinterest creations – you will not regret it!
