Can you be BFFs with a website? Because I think my BFFN (best friend for now) social media website has to be Pinterest. I thought it was Instagram (and I still love my picture feed), but Pinterest is my favorite way to pass a few minutes before bed each day looking at pretty pictures, planning my dream closet, getting ideas for our next home, discovering recipes, it’s a wealth of inspiration!
As with all friendships though, one must be realistic. I know you aren’t perfect Pinterest, and that’s okay. I will never be able to get my nails to look as lovely as the tutorial examples filling your pages, and I know better than to try some of the “there is no way this is as easy as it looks” DIY ideas waiting to go wrong, but I was drawn to your promise of crockpot bread. That, and I had some bread flour I needed to finish using before we began our road trip. I swore this was going to be a Pinterest Fail (and a likely submission to this Pinterest Fail blog), but IT WORKED!
Not only did it work once, I made it AGAIN, and it worked that time too! And then I found out that the bread blog that held the original link to the inspiration recipe not only had one crock pot bread recipe, but an entire section in a cookbook devoted to bread in the slow cooker. So my guaranteed “I can play with this recipe as much as I want because it’ll never work” Pinterest fail turned into a pretty impressive success. Yay me. And soon yay you.
