The sun is shining, the grass has started growing again (our neighborhood smelled like freshly cut grass last Saturday) and flowers are blooming. Spring is here!!! I know that we don’t really have much of a winter in Southern California, but I still love Spring. It’s my favorite season here. The weather is wonderfully mild, the birds are singing and plants are bursting with new life. This DIY Push Pin Art sign is my homage to the new season. It’s going to be the centerpiece of my mantel as soon I figure out what to do with the rest of the space. Want to know how easy it was to make?Read More
A few days ago I was locked in a race against the sun. Sunset was going to be at 5:42 pm and this baby was set to come out of the oven at 5:30. I needed that golden light that comes in the evening and makes things like this freshly baked Spaghetti Stuffed Garlic Bread look tantalizing. When I pulled this loaf out of the oven, it smelled like garlic and yeast and Parmesan cheese. I ran outside, snapped photos like a mad woman and then we chowed down. It was certainly the cleanest way to eat spaghetti. No one had to go straight to the tub afterwards. :)Read More

This Mint Oreo Shake was born out of necessity and invention. I was going to participate in a series of posts for St. Patrick’s Day with other bloggers. The only thing I had that fit the theme (I’m not really a fan of Irish food in general) was a copy cat Shamrock Shake that I made last year. It’s tasty and a fun green color, but this roundup was supposed to be new posts only. So I thought I would just add some Mint Oreos for extra deliciousness. I don’t know why I didn’t think about the fact that Oreos would color the shake an odd, grayish-brown color. Duh. Adding green coloring just made it worse. It tasted great, but it looked awful. So I bowed out of the group post and came up with something on my own. It’s not a St. Patrick’s Day recipe anymore, but it is perfect for Spring! Besides, as I’ve said so many times before, if it’s got Oreos in it, it’s gonna be good.Read More
This weekend I was able to go to my first blog conference in San Diego called Women Get Social, put on by the SITS Girls. I had no idea what to expect since it was my first one. I had head shots taken, got new business cards printed, bought a composition notebook and my favorite Sharpie pens, tossed them all in my personalized “365ish Pins” Thirty-one bag and hit the road. Well, after I got Bryce off to school, dropped Henry and Charlie off at Grandma’s house and got drenched in the rain while buying gas.
The drive down to San Diego was a bit harrowing, thanks to the rain and our inability to drive when it shows up. But I made it to San Diego in time to meet Jared for lunch at his newest Denny’s before heading to the Bahia Resort to check in for the weekend.Read More
Hi everyone! I’m April from My Real Food Family and I’m thrilled to be guest posting here at 365(ish) Days of Pinterest! Don’t you just love Pinterest? Probably, since you’re here :) I can’t say I make everything I pin but I gets tons of inspiration from there! Anyway….just a little about me…..I eat clean (for the most part) which just means that I eat natural, unprocessed foods. As a runner, I found that it was better to fuel my body with healthy foods instead of the junk I had been eating. But – let’s be honest – who want’s to give up desserts? Not me! The good news is that I didn’t have to! I’d love to have you stop by my blog and check out some of my recipes and see how delicious healthy eating can be! If you’d like to connect with me on social media, you can find me on Facebook, Instagram, and of course Pinterest!
Today I am sharing my homemade Cashew Bars. These are super easy to make and you can feel good about eating them and feeding them to your family! This healthy little snack bar is so easy to make….seriously, it takes 5 minutes. I’m almost hesitant to call it a recipe since it only requires two ingredients and a pinch of salt. Yep, you read that right! You only need 2 little ingredients to make this cashew bar. And there’s no baking required so you only need to throw the ingredients into the blender and it’s practically ready to eat. You could even get creative and add other ingredients (chocolate chips instantly come to mind). The variations are virtually endless!
What would you add to yum it up?
