My Favourite Pins This Week
This spinach and artichoke pasta is a brilliantly easy weeknight dinner, and very budget friendly. A hearty, veggie-friendly dinner that comes together in under 30 minutes? Sold. Pinterest link is here, and the original recipe can be found here.
Chocolate and peanut butter go together so well. Which means that these chocolate and peanut butter cookie bars are a delicious twist on the classic combo, with a thick, buttery cookie base. Bake these when you are having people over, you don’t want to be left alone with them. Pinterest link is here, and the original recipe post is here.
Lattes tend to be my coffee shop beverage of choice, but I rarely make them at home. When I do, I like trying out something a little different, especially when it has all my favourite fall spices in it like this maple spice latte. Cloves, nutmeg, allspice, and I add a bit of cardamom because I’m convinced cardamom makes everything better. Pinterest link is here, and the original recipe post is here.
Something about playing with clay as a adult feels really relaxing, and I’ve been eyeing this tutorial for making this very pretty (and highly giftable) clay leaf dish. Pinterest link is here, and the original DIY post can be found here.
Is it too soon? Probably, but when it comes to crafting for the holidays, best to get a jump on things. These adorable crochet Christmas ornaments are quick to whip up, and have all sorts of granny square charm. Pinterest link is here, and the original DIY post is here.
I feel like I’m finally getting a bit of a weekend to breathe, with the chaos of fall behind us, and it feels good to be getting back on top of things! I hope you have an amazing weekend.
