nailed it

I had a plan. I was going to tell you how I totally rocked Monday. How I was sitting at my desk in a really cute outfit, clocked in at 7:49 A-to-the-freaking-M, busting out some work. How I got to leave at 4:20 because I got to work early, and oh my gosh it's so much better than getting off at 5:30 and sitting in one hour of traffic. By 6:00, I had already done a few miles on the treadmill and was getting ready to cook dinner. 

Ah yes. Dinner. I decided to make pizza pockets, but what came out of the oven was actually a slice of humble pie. I found a recipe from Pinterest involving homemade whole wheat dough and yeast and a dough hook attachment on my Kitchenaid mixer and all that fancy jazz. I'm pretty successful at winging it in the kitchen when I have no clue what I'm doing, so I wasn't concerned. 

And then this happened.

My creation on the left, picture from the recipe on the right. Pinterest is full of LIES.

I need my mommy. Clearly I have no idea what I'm doing.



Also, recipes lie.

  1. I think I just nearly died... honestly, anything I attempt that is supposed to look like something from Pinterest always becomes humble pie.
    Pinterest = pile of shit.

  2. Haha that's great. Pinterest makes me feel less of a woman sometimes. I can't craft or wear pretty outfits or cook like all that! I can read the funny things, though...

  3. Your version is MUCH more colorful - who doesn't like that? I say bonus points to you.

  4. I feel like your version is more honest? Because it's not hiding what's inside of it, yeah? Poetry and stuff?

    Pinterest usually just makes me feel like everything I wear/cook/like is ugly and the worst.

  5. I died.

    It looks like something is trapped inside of your pizza pockets and trying to make its way out-- SO HILARIOUS. I bet they were delicious, though :) I had a similar experience the time I tried to make cake pops-- an absolute disaster. And that's putting it nicely.

  6. Your version is what I look like in the morning before make up, and the Pinterest version is what I look like after I shower and get ready. KIDDING. I bet it still tasted good? Maybe? I'm hoping?

    You rocked Monday anyway. You did.

  7. Recipes always lie. Always. Nothing ever looks as good in real life as recipes. But as long as it tastes good, that's all that matters.

    And I'm sure that even Ree Drummond has a Pinterest fail every now and then.

  8. I definitely giggled when I saw this last night. But did they taste good? That is all that matters?

    I call it a very successful Monday!

  9. Haha - I'm with Tiffany, as long as they tasted good, who cares what they look like! Sometimes messy food tastes the best.

    Sounds like you had an awesome Monday, anyway - hopefully better than last week!! :)

  11. put the seam on the bottom :) and try again.

    hope it tasted good, though. I'm actually partial to a little bit of burnt cheese that's snuck out of my pizza pockets.

  16. Oh my gosh! I laughed yesterday when you put this on IG, but the story behind it is better! Did it taste good?

  17. Seriously, Pinterest lies sometimes. I wonder if people just post things on Pinterest because they can. I wouldn't be surprised.
