Cooking With Pinterest
For me, Pinterest is primarily an inspiration board. I find things I like the look of, and I pin them. Easy.
But then, in my never-ending quest to streamline my day, I found a couple of recipes that seemed worth trying.
The Overnight Slow-Cooker Oatmeal seemed like a no-brainer. So easy! So oatmeal-y! So made in the slow-cooker!
It tastes just fine, but let me tell you, the cooking spray? Did nothing. I’m pretty sure there are oats welded to my slow cooker.
And the Egg Muffins?
Sure, they look harmless. And, after all, a friend did give me fresh chives. But again with the cooking spray #fail. I have no idea if I can return the pan to a usable condition. Also, they’re like rubber. I ate mine on the way to work; I can’t imagine that Baguette will eat hers. And I don’t blame her.
(And did I mention that I already knew that morning is not the time to experiment? But noooo, I’m going to make it work!)
Now I’m anxious about taking on other Pinterest cooking experiments–because while I really want to make this Chocolate Caramel Tart and these Nutter Butter Truffles (although I’m thinking about using dark chocolate), I can’t help but wonder whether I’ll feel mocked by the results.
What about you? Any Pinterest cooking failures? Or, more importantly, Pinterest cooking successes?
