My Favourite Pins This Week
It’s crockpot season! And cheese season! Wait, does cheese have a season? I eat it all year round, but if cheese did have a season, it’s definitely fall through winter. So let me tell you about this super creamy, super easy crockpot macaroni and cheese recipe that you are going to love (I’ve tried it without the mayo, also still good). And you know, if you want to crumble some bacon on top of it, I think that might just take it to the next level. Pinterest link is here, and the original recipe is here.
Super simple treats are always good to have on hand- and these freeze really well, too. These caramel cashew clusters are just chocolate, cashews, and caramels. That’s it. Perfect for gifting, too! Pinterest link is here, and the original recipe post is here.
If you have a rarely used waffle iron like I do, perhaps it’s time to haul it out of the cupboard and make some of these amazing apple cinnamon waffles, and caramel sauce – because everything is better with caramel sauce. Perfect for the weekend! Pinterest link is here, and the original recipe can be found here.
I absolutely love this idea for creating a 2D yarn ‘vase’ on a pretty piece of wood to display things. They use fresh flowers in the tutorial, but it would also be lovely with feathers, painted sticks, or photographs. Pinterest link is here, and the original DIY is here.
If you are looking to crochet some adorable amigurumi fruit – and if you can crochet, then please make me some – Here is a cute round up of all sorts of delightful little foodie things. Pinterest link is here, original round up with links to each is here.
