Easter Bunny Rolls – Pinterest Fail


e47e2f3a9d59d271bdb7598ff0aaf361If you’ve been on Pinterest anytime in the last month, then you had to have seen this cute idea for Easter Bunny Rolls being repinned a million times.

Seems easy right? My wonderful cousin thought so too. Being that she’s a GREAT cook, she tried them out this morning. ..and here’s what she put up on her Facebook page:

"Hey, you know those cute little bunny rolls that are all over Pinterest right now? They should NOT look like this! Hahaha! Happy Easter everyone!"

“Hey, you know those cute little bunny rolls that are all over Pinterest right now? They should NOT look like this! Hahaha! Happy Easter everyone!”

Needless to say, myself and all of her friends got a good laugh out of her Pinterest Fail.

It’s OK Cuz….I still love you and your cooking.

Happy Easter everyone!

Happy almost Easter everyone! It’s time to get those Easter baskets together, and I know lots of people look for great non-candy items for their baskets. I get that. My daughter is getting older so now she wants things like i-tunes cards, gift cards, nail polish, accessories, etc…however, I found some real winners today when I went online to see what other people put in their children’s baskets. By the way, none of these are a joke either…people actually suggested these.

Polished Rocks...What kid WANTS polished rocks?!?

Pine Cones...because your child can make cute crafts out of them. Yeah, OK.

Granola...just put it in a bag and tell them it's what the Easter Bunny eats. I'm sure they will be thrilled.

Veggie Crisps...because every kid wants this in their basket. They also said you could cut up real, fresh veggies if you have time. Thrilling.

A wedding picture of their parents. (I SWEAR someone said this!) "Look honey, it's your first Easter...and you were at our wedding!"

Fresh fruit cut into cote shapes. "They'll forget all about the candy!" No they won't!

Their "very own" boxes of band-aids. I guess so they don't have to bother you with that whole "I'm bleeding" thing while you secretly scarf down your own hidden candy!

You can cut out animal pictures from National Geographic, and put them in the Easter eggs. After the hunt, the kids can sort them as to where they might live. Wow, that sounds fun.

An extra 15 minute bedtime delay coupon...how generous...they get to watch half of a show on Nickelodeon.

Buy a few puzzles and put all of the different pieces in the egss. After the hunt, give the kids the boxes, and have them swap pieces until they all have their "own" puzzle pieces. Then they can do the puzzles. I have 3 nephews and 2 nieces. This would cause a meltdown of epic proportions. Trust me.

and finally…

A pedometer...so they can walk off all of that candy they didn't get!

Happy Easter everyone…and my deepest condolences to the kids who get any of the aforementioned items. Your parents are about as fun as watching paint dry.

Tea Bag Buddy


Tea_Bag_Buddy_1-sixhundredLook at what I found on Pinterest today…a “Tea Bag Buddy”. I’m sure if you are a tea drinker, you think this is a great product. Personally I just like it because the name cracks me up…”Tea Bag Buddy“.

I’m so excited!!! Guess what I finally found???  A “Tea Bag Buddy”!! My days of searching for one are finally over!!

If you want a “Tea Bag Buddy” for a mere $4.99, you can get it at Wantlist…or if you ask around…I’m sure you can find your own “Tea Bag Buddy” at no charge.

“Tea Bag Buddy”…while I find your actual premise to be Unpinteresting… I find your name to be pure gold!

Stainless Steel Ice Cubes


7670261837062448_B6corVE0_c

Look at what I found on Pinterest today…Stainless Steel Ice Cubes, courtesy of Sharper Image.

Here’s the product description:

Stainless Steel Ice Cubes

On a hot day, the ice melts way too fast and you’re left with a sweating, watering beverage. Instead, keep plenty of these Stainless Steel Ice Cubes on hand in your freezer. The transfer tray (included) and lid helps you keep them stacked and stored, while the serving tongs lets you serve them up for undiluted “ice” cold beverages.

• 1” square stainless steel ice cubes

• Re-freezable, Hand wash only

• Keep the cubes in the freezer; always ready to cool your drinks

• Filled with non toxic gel

• Cube tray allows easy transfer of cubes from freezer to glass

• Use again and again

• Non-diluting – these stainless steel cubes never melt providing a more flavorful and colder drink.

Now, I get the idea behind it…cold, non-watered down drinks…however, all I can picture is these babies smashing into my teeth when I carelessly drink from my glass. Sonofabitch, that would be unpleasant….no thanks. Besides, I tend to drink my drinks in a quick enough manner that my ice cubes don’t water my drinks down. Maybe it’s just me.  Plus, they make such a point about using the tongs to serve them with. Cleanliness issues aside, I think it’s because they will stick to your hand (or to your lip when you take that first sip)  like Flick’s tongue stuck to the pole in A Christmas Story.  

I had to...I mean, who doesn't love this??

I had to…I mean, who doesn’t love this??

I’m just not feeling it…but if you are, you can head on over to Sharper Image and order them for a cool $49.99.  I’ll just continue to push the magic ice button on my freezer door instead.

Stainless Steel Ice Cubes…I dub thee Unpinteresting.
