Pinned and Tried

We all have those Pins on our beloved Pinterest boards that we are so happy we tried and there are those that we wish would have had a disclaimer.

Am I right?

I got this idea from Angela at A Bushel and a Peck. She reviewed a couple of Pins and even told whether or not she was going to delete the pin.

I thought I’d do a recipe, a craft idea and an organizing tip (since I’m kinda obsessed with trying anything organizational.)


Man Pleasing Chicken:


I’m always looking for new ways to make chicken, and while this wasn’t the cheapest of recipes (maple syrup isn’t cheap my friends… unless you have a Trader Joe’s…boy do we need a Trader Joe’s here!) it was getting some major repins. So I thought we’d give it a go.

This was easy to prepare and cook, just mix, dump and throw in the oven, but wasn’t quite what we were expecting. My husband deemed it “ok.” We’d eat it again, but it won’t be on the top of our list.


Jersey Knit Bracelet

I think I may have tried this over a year ago… At about 1 am on a crafting spree with Taylor. I ended up making 4 that night and then a couple more for my sister as a birthday gift. They were THAT EASY. Once you get the rythym down, they are cake.   Definitely a keeper of a pin. If you have it pinned and haven’t tried it yet… try it, you might like it!


Glazed Donut Muffins

Yes, I know it’s another recipe, but by golly we love our sweets in this house.

These were PHENOMENAL! Just enough glaze and just enough cinnamon to hit the spot. We even took these to neighbors as Sunday night treats (and if you know me, you know that not just any recipe gets taken to neighbors…) MAKE THESE! Add this recipe to your arsenal, you won’t be sorry.


What pins have you tried that we need to try ourselves? Got any crafts that you’d like to see done?? Let us know!

    • Meg, you and I both know that anything with bacon is better! :) Oh and line your pan with foil if you make it… It took 5 days of scrubbing and soaking to get it off my vintage Pyrex!
