Pinned. Food Edition.

I have a slight obsession with Pinterest. It's addicting on so many levels... But I decided it almost leaves me struggling to decide on what I need to accomplish. Like my To Do list grows to over 100 in minutes... Yesterday was definitely a Pinterest filled day (in a good way) I got a lot accomplished and also had a couple failed attempts at things. Here are the results:
Yogurt Covered Pretzels

* I was really excited about this recipe because I love yogurt covered pretzels, but alas it was a FAIL. I followed the recipe almost exactly but they did not set up like the picture. So, try at your own risk ;) 

Zupas Wisconsin Cauliflower Soup

*My husband and I love a restaurant in Utah called Zupas. They have the yummiest salads, soups and sandwiches YUM This soup recipe for our favorite was a HIT!  We loved it. I added a little more flour because I was nervous it wouldn't thicken and then it was too thick, so stick to the recipe!
Paradise Bakery Sugar Cookies

*These cookies didn't taste exactly like Paradise but they were still pretty good. I'm more of a chewy sugar cookie girl but they were fun to make and tasted pretty good! I'd call it a success overall...

*I can't remember where I got this picture? But we decided to try to make Zupas Nuts about Berries salad and it was a pretty close match...We topped romaine and iceberg lettuce with strawberries, blueberries, and candied almonds. The recipe for the dressing is:
1/2 cup of oil
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1 tsp sugar
salt and pepper to taste
(a little bit of fresh lemon juice is always refreshing to add as well...)
This is my favorite dressing for salads and is SO yummy paired with berries! 

PS I hit over 100 followers this week! Woohoo! Thanks to everyone who cares to listen to my ramblings :) Look out for a giveaway sometime this week! 


  1. I pinned the cauliflower soup... Looks so good!

  2. You should try the mango berry salad from Zupas!! It has a mango yogurt dressing that I'm pretty sure I could just drink! I can give you the recipe I figured out if I can find it the next time I see you. Or maybe I'll put it into the family cookbook that I'm pretty sure is just a myth. ha ha Zupas changed their menu a bit and got rid of my favorite sandwiches :( But it is still definitely one of my favs!!!!!!


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment! I love to hear from you :)
