pinterest – it’s what’s for dinner

i am addicted to pinterest. i’ve been trying to be better about only pinning recipes that i might actually make. i also have a “a girl can always dream” board for all the amazing things i find that i never want to forget for that one day when i’m filthy rich. :) until then, i’m just keepin’ it real and cooking some amazing things. tonight i made this from a farmgirl’s dabbles.

needless to say, this was an amazing recipe! the peanut sauce. oh. my. i wanted to just grab a spoon and shove that stuff in my face (maybe i did…you’ll never know.) my girls even loved this. they cleaned their plates and i got a resounding “mommy, you are the best cooker in the world!” works for me.

pinterest didn’t disappoint for dessert either. i made these from just jenn recipes.

i might have had more than one of these for dessert. and i might just have one for breakfast, but i’d rather not say.

thank you, pinterest for being you! however, i may need to start pinning things that don’t have anything to do with food or else i’ll need to go find a diy wheelbarrow to get myself out of the house at the rate i’m going.

GOOD street food + design market

yesterday was the premier of GOOD street food + design market here in sacramento. can i just say how much we needed this? it was awesome and very fun. GOOD is featuring local designers and food vendors (food trucks too!) the first sunday of every month through the summer. my good friend rachel from popcycle creamery made her debut with her ice cream pops. she got rave reviews and tons of attention. i’m super proud of her!Popcycle and GOOD

another friend, amy was selling her jewelry, revitalized vintage. i fell in love with that turquoise beaded necklace, but didn’t nab it fast enough. sad face.

revitalized vintage

we had the most amazing food from voodoo van (they came from san francisco) – i think i got my deep fried intake for the year. note: i must have been too busy stuffing my face and forgot to get photos. sorry. next time.

there were tons of free activities for the kids too. face painting, pinata making, all sorts of mess-making that i didn’t have to do at home. sweet!

i can’t wait for the next GOOD event in july. it’s promising to be even better than the first!
