10 Pinterest Finds

I don't normally do lists of pinterest finds, but I so spend a lot of time on pinterest.  I wanted to share my 10 swell new finds.  I will warn you that these are completely random.


1.Brie + Cheddar Apple Beer Soup with Cinnamon Pecan Oat Crumble.

I live in a cold climate and I love soup.  I think the idea of a sweeter crumble on a soup sounds intriguing.  I am definitely going to try this, but I think I'll wait for a windy, rainy weekend.

2. Eyeball Rocks

I am a big fan of creepy stuff.  I really like these eyeball rocks, based on glass eyes.  I think I might make some and put them into some planters.  The idea is to paint the rocks like eyes and put a final layer of ultra shiny varnish on them.

3. Tilapia Tots

When I found these, I hurried to try them out.  I love fish, but sometimes I just want a new way to eat it.  These were quick and easy to make.  They were fun to eat.  I didn't use a cake pop thing like it suggests because I don't have one.  Instead I just pan fried them.   Still awesome!

4. The Big Tease  Vintage Hair

This is a BuzzFeed list of 27 vintage hair styles (how-to guides) to try out.  Definitely something I pinned!

5. American Flag Cake

I love the Americana that sprouts up around July 4th.  I'm not supposed to eat cake, but I love how each cut of this one is a flag.  I should make this for a July 4th BBQ.

6. Homemade Dog Treat Recipes

I have a Labrador named Lono.  My parents have a boxer-greyhound mix.  My sister has an akita-husky mix and an American bulldog.  We are always looking for new treats and stuff for these 4 GIANT babies.

7. Watermelon Cake

My boyfriend loves watermelon.  I want to make this for a summer party.  I think he would be thrilled especially since he's on a super restrictive diet right now.  Has anyone tried this?  What do you think?

8. Taro Fries with Sriracha Ketchup

Taro is a veggie that a lot of people don't quite know about.  They might have heard of taro chips as part of a mix bag of veggie chips, but have they really had taro?  It has a lower glycemic index than yams or sweet potatoes.  It is also totally packed with vitamins and minerals.  This is a paleo friendly veggie and can also be a substitute for potatoes.  In Hawaii, taro is used to make poi.

9. Dinosaur Bed

On pinterest I have a "Googie Flintstone Home" board.  I'm always looking for cool additions to add to it.  This is a little more kitchy than most of the other items, but I think it's pretty cool.  Instead of a bed, it could be used as a lounger for reading or something.

10. Soul Cakes

I think I am going to make some Soul Cakes this year for Halloween.  Soul Cakes used to be passed out to trick or treaters - of course now people would probably freak out because it's a homemade item.  It would still be good for a party though.
