Pinterest on an Empty Stomach


Browsing Pinterest, a visual bookmarking site, is Trouble with a capital “T” on an empty stomach. Heck, browsing the whole internet is trouble. I came across this cinnamon roll recipe sometime last week (I forget how) & I’ve been scheming for the perfect chance to make them. Today was the day. We have no where to go & it’s raining (or at least it was).


undefinedPenelope was more than excited to see that I was making pancakes – it’s a big deal around our house if I make breakfast. Usually our morning fare consists of cold cereal.


This recipe was incredibly easy & tasty, but I made a few changes. Instead of using margarine, I used butter. I had butter on hand & it just so happen to make the cinnamon mixture less gooey. Although, if I were to do it again, I’d use a legitimate pastery bag for piping out the cinnamon mixture. The butter solidified & I burst the ziplock I was using & made a tasty mess on the skillet.


I’ve bookmarked a few of my favorite ‘to try’ recipes onto Pinterest & funny enough, they’re all desserts or sweet breakfast foods (thanks to Lyndsey for pointing that out). Maybe I need to get my sweet tooth under control.

      That happened to me one day too where I wanted to make like 10 different things for dinner. Lately it just makes me want to learn a bunch of new crafts like embroidery and knitting. I seriously don’t know where my time goes the minute i log on.

      I came to the same conclusion about my recipe board on pinterest! All desserts! That’s when I started a new board for just cakes. I don’t actually make desserts all the time, but the recipes sure come in handy when I do!

    5. …..and apparently it’s bad news to read your blog on an empty stomach too! :) the sour cream cinnamon streusel muffins with pecan filling you pinned??? oh my.

    6. OHHH I hear you girlfriend. I am totally addicted to Pinterest. So much fun browsing all the eye candy. Your pancakes are definitely Pinterest worthy! What a good Momma you are.
