Pin it Party with the Lean Green Bean

Who doesn’t love a good pinterest party? Ok, so seriously, who’s ever really heard of one. Not me. At least not until now. Lindsay over at Lean Green Bean has hosted a few and they’re a great way to discover new recipes, tips, crafts etc that you may not otherwise be able to weed through in your Pinterest feed. It also lets you discover new blogs that you didn’t know about before, which I think is super duper. I figured I’d play along this time and add a few of my more popular posts/pins and then go through everyone else’s to add some serious pin-power to my boards for future reference.

Here are the rules:

  • Round up 5 blog posts you’ve written that you would like to see on Pinterest.
  • Write a short post featuring the posts you chose- ie, put 5 nice images & links to the posts all in one place, along with a short description of each post.
  • On Thursday (tomorrow), publish your post, then visit The Bean and add your post to the linkup!

The only rule is that if you link up, you should visit some of the other linkups and pin at least 3 images! Done and done! See my 5 pin-able posts below!

What Pregnant Vegetarians Eat

I love food. And with the exception of when I’m nervous, stressed out, over-tired or sick, I can hold my own at the buffet table. Don’t let my slight frame fool you: Mama love to eat. So when you add in some crazy hormones, pregnancy and one ravenous baby, you can only image the damageContinue Reading

Thriving on Thrive Energy by Brendan Brazier

I love being in my kitchen. Food prepping for the week is actually relaxing for me. I love the smell of granola baking or fresh cookies or a glorious dinner just minutes from being ready to eat. The problem is that I’m not the greatest cook. I try different things with moderate success but forContinue Reading

Another (VitaMix) Bites the Dust

Folks…it’s happened again. 3rd time is not a charm. It wasn’t better the second or third time around. My Vitamix (a.k.a “Mighty Vity”) has broken down. Again. For the third time in less than four years. *sad face* And it’s the same problem again. Motor is going, nothing is happening. Just the poor makings ofContinue Reading

My Homemade Hummus Recipe

I love hummus. I use it almost daily, whether for dip for my veggies or to make one of my 3 year-old’s favorite lunch: pita-rollups (hummus on a tortilla rolled up and cut in half). I’ve always bought hummus pre-made in the store because it was just easier and it tasted great. As the familyContinue Reading

The Best Cauliflower Soup I’ve EVER Made

It may not look like much but this was seriously the most amazing soup I’ve made in a looooooooong time! Cauliflower is always cheap in the fall and since I’m cheap…you can see the attraction. The problem is, I’m not a fan of raw cauliflower unless it’s dripping with dip, which isn’t the most idealContinue Reading

My Minimalist Freezer Dilemma

I missed Mayhem Monday this week because it was a stat day here and most of my day was spent with my family. No apologies coming, family first, blog second. It was definitely much needed because on top of some awesome quality time with my kiddos and some friends we had over for dinner thatContinue Reading

Scenes from the Week

Popchips on sale!! FINALLY finding my favorite chocolate chips at my local store. No more special trips. These little dudes are vegan and taste even better than regular chipits. And some fruit based icing sugar. I’ve never used it but am definitely intrigued if it works just as well as regular icing sugar. Any thoughts???Continue Reading
