My Favourite Pins This Week
I don’t celebrate St. Patrick’s Day (not since my 20s, anyway!) but I love these cupcakes! You could skip the Irish cream (and really, you could make them with a box mix, I won’t judge), because these cupcakes are all about the gorgeous decoration on top! High fives to the chef for making that rainbow piped icing idea super easy. Such a cute idea, even for a kid’s birthday party! Definitely skip the Irish cream, then. Pinterest link is here, and the original recipe post is here.
Okay, I loooove macaroni and cheese. I love cheese, really. But this clever recipe reduces the pasta considerably and substitutes a lot of cauliflower, adding some much-needed veg and reducing the overall impact of having a second helping. because let’s face it, I’m going to have a second helping. Pinterest link is here, and the original recipe is here.
I know this pink hot chocolate looks so indulgent, and it is. But One you remove all the photo styling decorations, you have a really good recipe for a wonderful evening treat. Sprinkles and whip cream optional! Side note- I didn’t even know that they had white hot chocolate mix (are there even more kinds, and I just don’t know about them?!). I’ve never seen it in a grocery store before, but now I’m on the lookout. Pinterest link is here, and the original recipe post is here.
I love the idea of embroidering on clothes an want to do more of it this year. This was a great step-by-step tutorial, and I’d love to try it but I find it weird that it calls for freezer paper, which I never use and have no idea what I would use it for, except for this embroidery tutorial. Does anyone know if parchment or wax paper would work as well? Or tell me what else I would do with freezer paper? Pinterest link is here, and the original DIY is here.
I’m in love with these dreamy photos from photographer Maria Svarbova. Don’t they look like paintings? So incredible. It’s worth clicking over and seeing the whole collection. Pinterest link is here, and the whole collection is here.
Don’t forget, you have until March 8th to enter the Alice Starmore Tudor Roses book giveaway! Hop on over to enter!
