So we all know that I love me some Pinterest. 🙂 I have been working on a couple of things over the last couple of weeks from Pinterest and they have all turned out pretty good.
First – I found this copycat recipe for the Chili’s White Chocolate Molten Cake that Joe could eat his weight in. I am not usually a fan of white chocolate, and I really don’t much care for this dessert at Chili’s, but I must admit that this was DELICIOUS! It was also easy to freeze the cupcakes, and just mix a little of the cream sauce just when you needed it.

Second – I wanted to try to make something that could be easily tossed into our bags on the way out the door to work. Neither Joe nor I eat breakfast, and I know it is important, so I tried out these little oatmeal muffins. They turned out ok. They do freeze nicely and they thaw nicely if you put them in the fridge the night before. I wasn’t a huge fan of the texture, and I would add something sweeter to the mixture because the flavor was pretty bland. Oh well, at least I tried. 🙂

Finally – This was my favorite project of the past few from Pinterest. After reflecting on a lot of things lately, Joe and I are wanting to eat more clean, green, and holistic. We are taking baby steps towards change, and our first step was our little mini herb garden. I made this in a couple of hours, taking the most time to make the wood look antique. We get a lot of light in a kitchen window, so this was the perfect place to hang it. I actually used some of my fresh mint in my water yesterday!!

One little extra – This last little treat turned out even better than I expected. This idea didn’t come from Pinterest, but instead from my best-friend’s mom. I took chocolate graham crackers and made sandwiches with fat-free cool whip. They are only 1 point on Weight Watchers. I wrapped them up and put them in the freezer for a yummy afternoon treat just in time for this heat wave. 🙂
