i may need a pintervention

all this pinteractivity is super fun.  i really enjoy trying out new recipes and craft ideas, and get a kick out of seeing some of my own photos pinned onto other people's boards.  yeah, i totally check what of mine has been added to pinterest.  you already know what an attention whore i am, come on now.

except that i came across this one, which i got mildly (read: extremely) irritated at:

yes, amanda robertson, i totally put your ass on blast.  as the teen would say, sucks to suck, huh?  because why on earth would you bother to pin something and then just talk a bunch of trash about it?  i'd say that's way more lame than me using something as horrific as a can of crescent roll dough to make a delicious treat.  maybe that's just me, though.  whatever.

anyway, i've been taking full advantage of some of the yummy-looking things i've been saving on my "stuff i wanna eat" board.  these pork chops with blue cheese sauce were a huge hit:

same goes for the baked sour cream ranch chicken.  this was yummy and on the table within half an hour.

i saw this crunchy coated bacon a while ago, and the only reason it took me so long to try it was the long baking time:  30 minutes.  that's a long ass time for me to wait for bacon.  it's easy enough, though - just coat the strips with some flour and pop in the oven.  yes, that's a whopping four slices there.  it's all i had left.

half an hour later, you have this deliciousness:

it was worth turning the oven on, though, because i also made a batch of these sopapilla cheesecake bars.

yeah, i've made sopapillas before.  this recipe was pretty much the same thing, only putting it in a pan and then chilling afterwards.  i liked this version better.

of course, that only works if you don't have a freakish aversion to baking with crescent roll dough out of a *gasp* can.  sorry, amanda.  guess that leaves you out.



  1. Gotta love those holier-than-thou Amanda's. Come on Wan, if you're going to use that storebought trash you might as well just drive thru McD's 3 times a day. Shame on you!

  2. I made the sour cream baked chicken too and I loved it! It was a huge hit with my H too, which is like unheard of.

  3. lol at the amanda robertson story. I am going to start saying, "sucks to suck." So thanks to the teen for keeping me semi-hip.

  4. WTH? My comments won't post.

    I was just saying what if I wanted a quick, yummy, easy peazy recipe? Yours would fit nicely in my piehole.

  5. I love that you put Amanda Robertson on blast, its gotta be the funniest post I have read on your blog! I am following you now on Pinterest, I'm lovefateinc.


i heart comments. i wan-na hear what you have to say.
um, i think.

squeezing in all the sightseeing

this was our NYC home for a whole week: it was one of only a few hotels that i could find that offered two beds in a room rather than, say, ...
