Pin It and Do down

So I finally got to the "Do It" part of my first Pin It and Do It entry. I'll get back to that in a sec. First though, I must tell you how utterly pathetic I realized I am. See, I was feeling absolutely giddy over the fact that I'd done something for the challenge. Giddy, just because I actually managed to do a small fraction of a challenge I'd signed up for. At this rate, I might just throw myself a party if I actually meet my goal of 4-7 pins. :P

What makes this oh-so-proud-of-myself-moment even more lame is how ridiculously easy a task I actually tackled. But hey, there were no rules about these pins having to tough, right? So anyway, here's what I did:

Super Easy Whole Wheat Biscuits

Mine don't look as good as hers...I'm pretending it's because hers are round and mine are square. Yeah, whatever. :P Important thing is that they probably taste the same, right?

And the verdict? Well, Max hated them (but then he's so not a bread person), Gray loved them, and Rich, Annie, and I all thought they were "okay." Not sure if I'll make them again, but I might.

I also get to count this cooking excursion as "another one down" for my 50x50, item 15--Try 50 new recipes. Tonight's supper actually added three to that list, as I made a new super-freakin' yummy recipe for baked ziti *and* a new dessert.

Said dessert, this decadent brownie pie, also made me think of our lovely Pin It and Do It challenge hostess, Trish. Any idea why, Trish? Yep, it's made in a springform pan.

Congrats on the progress! I've never attempted homemede crackers of any kind.

Trish said...

And how was said dessert?? Because you know that I'm on the hunt for good recipes! Off to repin now. ;)

Wait--there's no link to the dessert!!! NEED.
