Do you pin? I'm talking about Pinterest, a digital pinboard site that allows the collection of themed pictures of your choosing. It's a total time sink, and I can spend hours there looking through the art, crafts, foods, decorating, and other images that are pinned to peoples' boards. My boards are here, if you're interested in taking a look or, even better, following my boards.
I've had fun the last few days making Halloween treats and some fall snacks, all thanks to Pinterest.
First up: witches' hats. The directions are found here. If you go to the recipe, you'll see that the professional's look much better than mine. I used cookie icing, instead of a thin frosting, to make the bows, and they got all melty. That didn't stop the kids from eating them, though!

And finally, a pin that showed gorgeous single-serve apple pies in a basket, with a link to Williams-Sonoma and their apple pocket pie mold. Here are mine. Jeremy absolutely loves any kind of pie, and had a ball helping me make a few of these today. They'll fit right into a sandwich bag and he can pack them in his lunch.
|Mmmm... just needs a spoonful of ice cream.|
I'm also going to make the oreo cookie mummy pops again (see last year's post), over the next evening or two. I have the correct eyes this time, so hopefully they'll look even better this year.
