It’s no secret that I’m terrible in the kitchen. I can’t cook, I can’t bake, I can barely use the microwave (and I’ve broken four in my lifetime). Recently, in the Pinterest class at BlogU, I was taught that all bloggers should have a “Food Board” on Pinterest, even if that’s not one of your blog topics. I started one, and have been pinning really colorful and creative pictures of food. I’ve also been loving the recipes from

I’ve actually been a little bit inspired by all the great pictures on that board, and think that maybe the time has come where I can learn some things about making food, and a good place to start is with something fun. I’m thinking that some recipe cards would be even more encouragement to tackle this goal. That’s where you come in!
