Pinterest Meal: Do they turn out as good as they look?

Pinterest is such an amazing place where you can find so many ideas for all different things in life. The amount of inspiration for my future wedding or home live on boards that I pinned. I have recently wondered do these Pinterest hacks actually turn out? I decided to take things into my own hands and create something I found on Pinterest!

I wanted to start with something a little simpler... nothing to hard like a whole DIY project (which I do plan to attempt in the near future). I found this dinner pin 

This pin didn't look to hard and I figured I would make it for my boyfriend to have for dinner the next few nights! 

My Attempt;

To be honest this meal turned out looking great! I didn't garnish it with anything but my boyfriend added some red pepper flakes and loved it! 

I definitely recommend this recipe and want to hear if you have tried it out! 

This has made me feel more confident in myself with Pinterest hacks and I am ready to tackle my first furniture DIY this month, stay tuned! 


How to Make Homemade Cookies; The Cheater Way

For Christmas I received this adorable jar of cookie mix from a student. I totally forgot about the jar and the other day when I found it I knew I had to make them right then and there! 

This recipe is fool proof! You basically just mix together butter, an egg and vanilla then add the jar and mix it!

The cookies turned out to be absolutely delicious! The batch made me 19 cookies and after having a few to myself and packing a couple away for my boyfriend by the end of the day all of the cookies were eaten by family and friends. 

This was not only a fool proof way to make homemade cookies but it also was an adorable gift to give/receive!
