This first pin test report is the "half pin". I already had the meals in the freezer (as I reported way back when), but I finally got to taste them.
Pin Report #1 (or 1/2)
Back in October I featured this pin in my Show and Tell Saturday:
Well, as of Tuesday night, we have finally tasted all but one of the meals (still haven't tried the French Dip Sandwiches yet). They each have been SO good! And they have been so incredibly easy and nice to have. Thaw for a day in the fridge, put a crock pot liner in the crock pot, plop the contents in, cook, eat, and toss the liner. Easy with minimal clean up. I love it. I will definitely be making these (and other recipes) again! Pin Win on easiness, Pin Win on taste. Try these out, you won't be sorry!

Pin Report #3
This is another pin from October when I was just trying to keep busy. I was crocheting everything I could find trying to use up what yarn I had in my craft drawers. I found this pattern on Pinterest and was instantly excited:

|I was going to pull up Pinstrosity on his Kindle...but as you can see, it's out of battery. Oh well.|
These last three pins were super yummy, but I didn't get any pictures of my finished product. Lame, I know.
Pin Report #5
For our church's Christmas party/potluck, I decided to give this a try:
I tripled the single layer pie crust recipe, and made a single batch of the filling recipe and ended up with way more filling than I had pie crust. I'm pretty sure the problem there was that I forgot to poke the bottoms of the crusts with a fork, so they puffed up some and didn't hold as much filling.
They turned out so yummy though! Definitely a hit.

Pin Report #7
They were a little time consuming and messy, but they tasted fantastic. I used tongs to hold the cookies to dip the bottoms in chocolate, but the rest I just followed the directions on the site. The recipe makes a ton!
My Mom passed on a trick to me that I used for this to help get the dough even and thin enough. Go to your local hardware store (a craft store may work too) and buy square dowel rods in various sizes (1/8', 1/4", and 1/2" are the sizes I bought).
So there you have it. My lump sum of creativity for the past 3 months. Not bad.
