My Favourite Pins This Week
I’m quite a fan of cauliflower, it’s such an easy way to get more veggies. These cauliflower and quinoa bites are surprisingly easy and don’t take a lot of ingredients- and they are delicious! Pinterest link is here, and the original recipe post is here.
Grilled pound cake and peaches! If you love all things barbecue, it’s worth a late season treat like this. And you haven’t lived until you’ve had grilled pound cake, it’s so much better than I would have thought. Pinterest link is here, and the original recipe post is here.
Have you got a stockpile of plastic bags? Me too. What about making ‘plarn’, plastic yarn? Perfect for turning into sturdy knitted or crocheted tote bags. Talk about recycling! Pinterest link is here, and the original tutorial can be found here.
I have mixed feelings about the gigantic shawl trend (I’m a small person, lots of fabric makes me look like a child playing dress up), but this Cliquant Shawl is pretty compelling- I love the simple shape and design, it seems flattering and easier to wear than some of the more colourful versions I’ve seen. What do you think? Pinterest link is here, and the original Ravelry pattern page is here.
