There were so many great comments,  so to be fair I used the generator...

5/28: Favorite Pin-ups from Pinterest

Being that I'm completely addicted to Pinterest and spend a good chunk of time on there, I thought I would be appropriate if occasionally I featured a pin or two that caught my eye. My daughter and I turn to Pinterest regularly for great recipes too and I thought it would be fun to share what we learned about specific recipes.

Here's today's favorite Pin-ups from Pinterest:

Red Velvet Brownies
My daughter made these yesterday and they didn't even last 24 hours before the boys devoured them. She made these from this pin and created them from a box of Red Velvet cake mix. They were okay, but we didn't put the frosting on them and I think that would have really put them over the top. She did however add in some chocolate chips which really made them nice. So overall, thumbs up, but I would add some yummy cream cheese frosting.
