Tried and Tested Pins 1

I flipping love Pinterest, you may be able to tell by the sheer number of pins I have. I use it as a way to bookmark recipes, save things for later, categorise recipes and have them with me everywhere I go. But I don’t know about you, Pinterest can become a bit of a cold dark place. Many people pin and go. Ooo I like the look of that *Pin* then it’s forgot about into the depths of time. I’ve decided to stop the tide and start cooking my pins! I’ve had a Tried and Tested board for a while now where I comment on pins I’ve tried.

But I thought I’d share my most recent and favourite pinterest adventures with you. All of these get the Magpie stamp of approval so if you like the look of them, give them a go! Or if you are inspired to try some of your pins, let me see the piccies!

So here we have A Magpie in the Sky’s Tried and Tested Pins, Volume One:

The Pin: Joy the Baker’s Avocado Hummus

My Version:

What I Changed:

Nothing except I couldn’t be bothered to hull the chickpeas and I made mine in a smoothie blender!

The Pin: Dessert For Two’s Faux Peach Pies

My Version:

What I Changed:

I used grated marzipan instead of the Sorghum (WTF) because I had some hanging around, Nectarines instead of the Peaches and slipped a spoonful of Greek yoghurt into my meringue nests before the nectarines.

The Pin: The Londoner’s Avocado Cookies

My Version:

What I Changed:

I was a little put off by the amount of sugar, so I replaced the 1/3 cup of white sugar with a mixture of flax, ground almonds and coconut flour – they still came out delicious. They also got the David seal of approval.

The Pin: A Tasty Love Story’s Grain Free Porridge

My Version:

 

What I Changed:

I halved the recipe (saving the half a banana for an upcoming recipe!) and used hazelnut milk in place of coconut. I topped mine with fresh coconut, grapes and a little splatter of hazelnut butter.

 

There you have it folks, if you want to see a million pins of cake and porridge, link up with me on Pinterest! I’d also love to hear if you like this post as I’m thinking of making it regular – let me know below..
