Pinterest picks

I don't share my Pinterest picks very often these days, but sometimes I get inspired to post about a few of my recent favorites here. Enjoy.

 I just made these peanut butter coconut macaroons for the first time a couple weeks ago (sans the chocolate drizzle), and they are fabulous. I'm sure that I'll be making them again soon.

 Like many people, we get a ridiculous amount of junk mail around here. I love the concept of making reverse junk mail envelopes so that at least a few of them don't end up right in the trash. This would be a great project for DIY invitations or Christmas cards.

 I'm always on the lookout for green smoothie recipes that do not include banana. I have to give this orange smoothie recipe a try sometime.

This thinking of you card features paint chips, but you could customize this idea with any type of color blocking or coordinated patterned paper. There are so many possibilities here.

I've had pineapple upside down cake a number of times, but I can't say that I've ever had another kind of upside down cake. This is a great resource for modifying the upside down cake concept with the ingredients that you have on hand.

I already mentioned the ticket stub pillows once this month, but they are so awesome that I have to feature them again. I really love this concept and think that it would make such a sweet gift for a significant other.

When I'm not making green smoothies without bananas and searching for new coconut recipes, I'm eating avocados. Most of the time I don't do anything creative with them because they're so delicious on their own, but once in a while an avocado recipe will inspire me like this cream avocado lassi.

  1. Yum, those macaroons look so good...mine would have to have the chocolate :)
    I love the junk mail envelope upcycle and the simplicity of the greeting card.
    The ticket stub pillows are a fun idea too!

  2. Those reverse junk mail envelopes are smart! I should start doing that. We're up to our eyeballs in unwanted credit card offers.

  3. Great Pinterest picks. I've never heard about reverse junk mail. They do look cool! Not however a fan of avocado. The smoothie sure does look pretty though!

  4. Great picks. LOVE the pillows! And the color block card is beautiful. And holy quacamole--that's a BIG green smoothie.
