Pinterest. It's a Problem.

In the early stages of Pinterest I was largely able to ignore it's allure because I had JUST finished planning my wedding and I needed a break from all things organizing.

That lasted about 5 minutes.

I was just starting to get a little bit curious when  I found out that you had to be invited to join. Which meant, of course, I had an immediate need to be a part of the ultra-exclusive community. (I'm a museum guard's worst nightmare and  a marketer's dream.)

So, I impatiently awaited an invite and snapped up my membership. Two months later, I am in LOVE with Pinterest. Unfortunately, it's the bad kind of the love. It's a "your friends and family are likely going to have to stage an intervention" kind of love.

They say the first step towards recovery is acknowledging the problem.

Wait. Would admitting I have a problem mean that I have to stop?

New plan.

Here are the fabulous things I cooked this weekend that I learned about from my very bestest friend Pinterest:

(This one needed quite a few changes, you can find those HERE.)

(Just use whole wheat bread and completely omit the butter step, it's 100% unnecessary)

(I used whole wheat flour.They are GREAT with yogurt and fruit, but I would not give them to a child (or to me) as a substitute for Oreos.)

(My picture was not worthy of being posted, but it was worthy of seconds..and maybe thirds...)

In conclusion, Pinterest; You are a time suck and a total distraction, but I do love you so.
