The Pinterest reviews – drinks and desserts January 14, 2012

Posted by Judy in Food, Musings.

We like to bake at our house, so I think this is the category that has gotten the most use on my Pinterest page. Some have been fantastic, others, not so much.

Here we go!  (I know nothing about html coding.  As such, I can’t figure out how to keep the next line of test from bunching up after the pinterest photo.  Any ideas?)

Black bean cupcakes

So these weren’t as gross as they sound, but they definitely weren’t delicious. They needed LOTS more sugar, a problem that was solved by slathering them with chocolate buttercream frosting. I suppose using that much frosting sort of negates the fiber benefits . . I’m okay with that!

Blackberry syrup

Meijer’s had blackberries on megasale, so I bought tons and needed something to do with all of the berries. This syrup is fantastic in smoothies, on ice cream and in soda.

Blackberry cream soda

This was really delicious the first time I made it, less so the subsequent times, but still a keeper!

Pumpkin icecream

Can’t say that I really enjoyed this recipe.  It could have been mediocre pumpkins, or maybe just a mediocre recipe. In any case,  I won’t be making this again.

Blackberry icecream

This was pretty good, not too creamy, but still decent. I have yet to find a to die for homemade icecream recipe!

Piping icing trick

The first time I used a pastry bag, it was a disaster.  Enter this fabulous trick, and my pastry bag is now actually useful!  Try it, it’s a great trick!

Chocolate tangerine bars with clementine buttercream

A really disappointing recipe.  It sounded to delicious, but when it was all said and done, we all agreed. …  “Meh.”

Pink lady cake

I made this cake for DD’s birthday, it was quite good, but more work than I’m willing to put into cakes.  And besides, it’s pink, enough said!

Double dark chocolate pomegranate cookies

Another disappointing recipe here.  The pomegranate added a nice flavor, but the seeds were unpleasant, and the cookie itself was only mediocre.  Alas.

Frozen hot chocolate

The success of this recipe really lies in the hot chocolate mix.  Mediocre hot chocolate yielded a mediocre frozen drink, while yummy hot chocolate yielded yummy results.  The recipe said it would make 2 large drinks, I ended up with more like 4-5 very large drinks.
