Pinterest Taste Test {3}

Ahh… it’s summer break, I’m relaxed, it’s starting to get hot, life is good.  What do you crave in hot weather?  I constantly crave cold and sweet.  I could seriously live off of ice cold soda, frozen grapes and slushies from Sonic.  I recently pinned this great idea to give me something small, sweet and super cold in these warm summer months.

Yup, it’s frozen yogurt dots.  YUM!  They crunch in your mouth, they cool you off and yeah, it gives my body much needed calcium.  What a deal!  The idea was posted by Jillee at One Good Thing by Jillee.  So glad she pinned to Pinterest or I never would have tried it!  Please follow ‘pinning’ etiquette and visit her site directly if you’d like to pin this to your board.  Thanks!

I had to learn to share these too.  My kids decided they were as yummy as I thought they were.

One warning, make sure that you get them off the cookie tray and back into the freezer quickly and then take them out in small groups to nibble on.  They melt fast and the whole purpose is to pop them in your mouth.  If you can’t use your hands, what’s the point?  :-)  Most freezers tend to have an extra cold zone.  Once you get them off of the cooking tray, just put them in a ziplock back while they are still frozen and put them in the “extra cold zone”.

 

Hope you and the little ones in your life enjoy these little frozen yogurt drops.

Happy Friday!  Have you entered my giveaway yet?  Check it out…

This past weekend {on Mother’s Day} we tried cooking corn on the cob using something I pinned on Pinterest.  The directions were actually from the website Cait Hates Cake and I followed them my hubby followed them exactly.Put the corn in the oven at 350° for 25-30 minutes with the husk on, it will trap in the moisture, leaving you with juicy, tender corn. The husk and silk will peel away easily once it’s cooked

Our corn was SUPER juicy, delicious and very easy to peel.  I think I will be making all corn on the cob this way from now on!

Happy Monday!  How many of you {myself included} pin TONS of wonderful recipes, but never actually make any of them?  I have quite a few recipes pinned and if I’m honest I’ve only tried a few.  I’m not sure if it’s laziness or improper planning, but when I’m in the rush of making a menu and a shopping list, checking my pinterest board doesn’t come to mind.

I HAVE made this fabulous Garlic Cheesy Bread from Lauren’s Latest that I first saw on Pinterest.  In fact, I’ve made it 3 times and EVERY time it is absolutely amazing.  I am naturally a carb lover {hence why I struggle with my weight} and this bread is worth breaking a diet for.

Lauren has tons of pictures on her step by step tutorial.  It looks a little complicated when you read all of the directions, but I promise you it’s not actually difficult.  It is gooey, cheesy, warm and s.i.n.f.u.l!

I give it a 10 out of 10!  Super yum!  Make some for your family today, you just might have all the ingredients already {I have most of them in my cupboard most of the time}!
