Help me! 
I’ve been pinning pumpkin and other cinnamon-y recipes like mad.

Also called Snickersnaps.  Mmmmmm.   These are a new cookie cross-breed, much like the designer dogs that are so popular.

Anything with maple glaze is good but with bread and cinnamon?  Makes your mouth water.

Well-done food photography is awesome.  Look at that steam!

I have enjoyed these and many many other sweet and carb-loaded treats… without taking a bite!  I haven’t made one of these delicious-looking recipes but I’ve had fun pinning them!  My Pinterest boards for Fall Recipes and for Sweets are an embarrassing collection of sugar and flour-laden delights.  Boy am I ever thankful that this is a zero-calorie pastime. 

Instead, I am trying a whole bunch of new soup recipes this fall.  Last night I made this one:

black bean chili
Weeknight Black Bean Chili
Super easy and it was really good!

Also on my list:

autumn veg soup

caprese soup

So fresh and yummy looking!

veg quinoa soup

Another way to use kwi-no-uh (as I say with a smirk)!

I think Pinterest can be a big time vacuum but I have to say, I’ve especially loved the recipes I’ve found and the easy way I can save them and other good ideas for all kinds of stuff. 

Do you pin?  Have you spent more or less money as a result?  Have you gained or lost weight?  Have your husband or kids had to drag you away from the computer because you got lost in Pinterland?
