Pinterest cooking...a few things I made and you should too



Sometimes I find myself pinning and not making, so last week I decided to tackle a few things from my pinterest food board.

I made these triple chocolate chunk muffins that have only 58 calories per muffin.  Mine didn't end up looking like this picture but they were pretty yummy.  

oats, greek yogurt -58 calories per muffin. these look good @Vicki Sofianos 
healthy is always better

I had some yogurt that was getting close to it's expiration date, so I made these yogurt drops for my daughter.  They were a great after school snack.

Yogurt Drops: Spoon flavored yogurt into a plastic bag. Squeeze dots onto cookie sheet and place in freezer. They'll be ready in about an hour! | Such a great healthy summertime snack. 
one good thing


Pumpkin muffins-just two ingredients, a box of cake mix and a can of pumpkin.  Not the healthiest muffin, but they were a hit with the kids.  They were gone so fast I didn't even get a chance to try them.

 
Sweet Verbena

Easter Birds Nests
I didn't follow this recipe because I have a kiddo with a peanut allergy, but it was the same idea.  I melted butterscotch chips and chocolate chips and added a bit of vanilla to one batch, the other batch, I used butter and mini marshmallows with a little vanilla.

Easter Birds' Nest 
The curvy carrot


Cinnamon Pinwheel bread
I made this for an after school snack.  I had to tweak the recipe a bit because I don't have a bread machine. Two loaves were gone in less than 12 hours.  It was so good and perfect as a warm snack right out of the oven.

 
Savannah's Savory Bites

cake batter cookies
I tried to make these just a little healthier by adding olive oil instead of vegetable oil.  I probably shouldn't have.  Stick to using vegetable oil.

Snicker doodle Muffins
These smelled delicious as they were baking.  Mine of course, never look like the picture, but they tasted yummy.  Again, I tried to make them a bit healthier and used whole wheat flour.  Just stick to white flour.  These would be a great special morning muffin.

 
eat me, delicious

I am terrible at pinning things and then never doing anything with them. Thanks for the inspiration! Love the yogurt drops idea.

I have seen those bird's nests all over pinterest too and after seeing this post I really need to try to make them for myself. I like the sound of those pumpkins cupcakes too!

What a yummy post!
