My Favourite Pins This Week
These crispy quinoa patties me together really easily, and are great snack slash dinner idea- really the hero of this dish is the avocado dip. The quinoa cakes themselves are highly adaptable – you could substitute gluten free breadcrumbs if you are gluten free, add a bit of chopped spinach, and play around with the consistency. And the avocado dip can be used for all sorts of things! Excellent on burgers, sandwiches, and for sweet potato fries. Pinterest link is here, and the full recipe can be found here.
I love coconut, and these Almond Joy truffles are smaller, bite-sized versions of the classic candy bar. They are so delicious and a great treat to make in the winter months- they aren’t too heavy, and are so very satisfying- if you like coconut, that is! Which I do- I love all things coconut. If coconut is not your jam, I have a whole board of dessert related recipes over here if you are looking for some sweet inspiration. And for the Almond Joy recipe, the Pinterest link is here, and the full recipe is right over here.
If your feel like your door is looking a little blah now that you’ve taken down your holiday wreath, what about making this amazing pom pom wreath?! I love the bright, happy colours that are not for any particular holiday, just for making your door as cheerful as can be. Plus, such a great opportunity to destash a bunch of yarn leftovers you might have lying around! Pinterest link is here, and the fully DIY is here.
You guys know I’ve been obsessing over plants lately, and this trellis plant wall is calling my name! I love how it creates a really pretty, interesting green wall with small plants, perfect for if you don’t have a lot of floor space but want to get some greenery happening. Pinterest link is here, and the full post on how to do it is over here.
If you have a closet full of clothes and feel like you have nothing to wear, then this post is for you.
