What I've Done with Pinterest...

...sorry, I could NOT come up with a good title for this post and, of course, I don't have pictures. I've done some things on Pinterest lately and my mom has done a TON of things, I think I've got her addicted. I wanted to share some of the things I've done/made. Click on title for link back to original directions/blog.

Cake Batter Dip
1 recipe 18 oz cake mix
1.5 cups of plain yogurt
2 cups whipped topping
Mix together and serve with vanilla wagers, animal crackers or fruit.

This was a huge hit and it made a TON! I served with animal crackers but I think it would have been great with fruit. The yogurt in it made me think of a fruit dip.

Homemade Frozen Dog Treats
32 oz plain yogurt
1 mashed ripe banana
2 tablespoons peanut butter
2 tablespoons honey
Mix together and freeze in ice cube tray. When frozen pop out and store in Ziplock bag.

I made this with the leftover yogurt from the Cake Batter Dip so I just split the recipe in half. Half the recipe was perfect for both our dogs. I would think it would get freeze burnt if you only had one dog. Of course, it totally cools down the day after I make them but Emma and Shad loved them. Well, what they tasted. They both inhaled it but enjoyed licking the bowl. Maybe for bigger dogs, you should make the cube bigger so they have to lick it and can taste it?

AR helped me make them, she's a great supervisor.
 I didn't get a pic of them inhaling the cube but here they are licking the bowl I carried them in.

Lazy Cake Cookies
1 box yellow or white cake mix
2 eggs beaten
5 tablespoons melted butter
2 cups mini chocolate chips or M&Ms
Mix together. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.

O...M...G! This was so easy and so good. I'm ashamed so I won't tell you how long this lasted, or didn't last, in our house.

Freezer Meals
Just click the link to a whole LIST of meals you can freeze. My mom and I made the Teriyaki Chicken (haven't tried it yet, still frozen) and the Sausage and Peppers. I forgot Matt doesn't like peppers so I ate the majority of this one. I thought it was good except when you serve it over pasta, there isn't much "juice" so the pasta is kind of blah. I still enjoyed it and am looking forward to the other bag we froze of it.

I've tried a few other things but you can read about them here and here. Please share you favorite Pinterest recipes or crafts!

I love Pinterest, but I find myself to be too lazy to actually do anything form it. Haha.

I had read your Christmas Party post before, and last year a bunch of girlfriends and I had a Pinterest Christmas Party. Each person brought a gift made from an idea on Pinterest, and we played rob your neighbor with them. It was a lot of fun to see what everyone came up with.

Maybe once i go on leave I will take some time to make a couple recipes I've repinned. :-)
