Pinterest Has Become My Muse!!

3 Sep


I am sure…in fact I am positive that I’m not the only woman addicted to Pinterest! I am constantly browsing and dreaming of building a house with a library full of the recommended books, a perfect back porch and a Pinterest perfect garden! I will of course be the perfect Pinterest house wife and do all the cute activities that are posted for mothers to do with their kids. Not to mention cook all the delicious home-made meals… and then I get a reality check!! LOL.

We can’t be the perfect women in the Pinterest dream world! But we can come pretty dang close!! I have been working on a few of the Pinterest recipes and with some adjusting I found a few great recipes that worked out great! So here is a crepe recipe that has been approved by yours truly!! More recipes from interest to come!

I started with a crepe breakfast recipe!

You will need:

Crepe batter recipe. (I purchased from world market a basic crepe mix. Followed instructions on the back).

Vanilla Greek Yogurt

Fresh Fruit of Choice (Strawberries for me)

Sliced almonds

Powdered Sugar

1. Mix batter. Spray pan with non stick spray. I start the heat on Medium.

Your Crepe should look something like this…

2. Spoon Yogurt in the middle. Add sliced strawberries and almonds.

4. Roll like a burrito! Sprinkle powdered sugar on top. Add some strawberries for color and Almonds for crunch!!

5. ENJOY!!

After you whip this up for breakfast your guests will think you are a professional chef! It is pretty healthy and delicious!!

Pinterest, after some adjustments this was a great recipe!!




Update on my DIY Garden

3 Sep


I woke up this morning ready to read for class and after going over my syllabus I realized it is Memorial Day! LOL. I’m not used to having random days off. But I was relieved when I realized I had the day to update my blog and paint my nails!┬áHere is an update on my DIY garden!

Who knew sprouts grew so rapidly?! I sure didn’t! But I am like a child checking my plants every day and night! Here are some picture to show you how quickly they have grown in three days! I guess living in Phoenix has its benefits after all! The climate is perfect for planting and growing veggies and herbs! I cannot wait to use them in my cooking experiments but for now the process of watching them grow is equally fulfilling!

First row is the wheat grass! Which is really only good for the appearance unless you have a wheat grass juicer!

My second row is basic alfalfa sprouts which I cannot wait to try in a salad or on a sandwich!

My last row is bean sprouts which grew the most rapid! I hear they are great in stir fry!! Excited to find out!!
