Brats & Potato Wedges

What did humans do before pinterest?! I am admittedly a pinterest junkie! My best crafts,parties,gifts and meals all come from this very very addicting website! I know I'm not alone...but if you're living under a rock and don't know what pinterest is you should really check it out! -you can thank me later :) 

....Now onto my latest pinterest play I used two recipes for our dinner. On average we try a pinterest recipe about 3 times a family will either say keep the recipe or lose it...both these recipes they say are keepers!

First recipe is the potatoe wedges..easy peasy..the key to great wedges is PARCHMENT PAPER folks! The taters come out nice and golden !

Here is the link to the recipe. Very flavorful.
The next recipe is for the bratwurst. When I make this again I will either use plain beer or perhaps that apple ale beer. The recipe calls for grilling the brats for a few minutes but it's been so cold and frigid here in Michigan that the thought of going outside makes me cold. For what little bit you grill them I found it not worth going outside for...I did however pull out the ole' George Foreman...that seemed to have did the trick. I also added fresh sliced mushrooms to the onions and sauce. 
Give this recipe a shot. It's worth trying and changes up a simple brat!
If you Decide to try any of these recipes let me know what you guys think! Big thanks to the original posters of the recipes!

Pinterest saved my marriage

I never know what to get Dan for gifts. He doesn't help, because he never knows what he wants either! I know he likes scratch offs so when I seen this

On pinterest I pinned it and remembered it at the last minute! He liked it.. he really liked it!! I'm sharing it because it's a great gift to use for many occasions for the person that has everything! I mean who doesn't love scratch offs! Nothing says I love you like if you win big I'm entitled to half ha ha!! I don't know who originally made this on pinterest but thanks!

Valentine's Day Plate

Been awhile since I've played with decoupage. A little stamps,paint,ribbon and modge podge and it made for a fun evening while watching chopped on the food network.
