Ten Pin Worthy Baking Recipes

Oh, crepe! With recipes like these, bakers are going to bake.

I have a love/hate relationship with Pinterest - yeah, I said it. I love to look for recipe ideas or any other crafty thing to do and, trust me, I find hundreds of things that I think, "Woah, I'd love to try that!" But, sadly, half of the ideas that I see on Pinterest never quite turn out the way that I either A. hope that they would turn out to resemble the Pinterest picture or B. somewhat look like it but end up tasting terribly. If Pinterest has ever steered you in the wrong direction like it has me a few times then you're in luck because here are ten of my favorite recipes that not only have turned out well but have also tasted incredible. So, prepare you're sweet-tooth for these ten pin worthy baking recipes!

1. Loaded M&M Oreo Cookie Bars

I still remember the first time I tried this recipe because it was actually that good. In fact, it smelled so good baking that we couldn't resist digging into these bad boys before the rest period had ended - needless to say the pan was clean shortly after. This Recipe is from Averie Cooks.

2. Cake Batter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate chip cookies and cake mixed together? And they say you can't have your cake and eat it too. This Recipe is from Sally's Baking Addiction.

4. Iced Raspberry Danish Braid

Not only is this recipe fun to make but tastes great as well. The Recipe is from Sally's Baking Addiction.

Strawberries and peaches are two of my favorite fruits so the fact that these two are combined to create one dessert grabbed my attention immediately. As it is with all of Sally's Baking Addiction recipes, I was not disappointed! This Recipe is from Sally's Baking Addiction.

6. Trillionaire Bars

People say not to eat raw cookie dough but, hey, you only live once. And if the raw cookie dough kills me while eating these bars one day, I know I'll have died happily. This Recipe is from Creme de la Crumb

I'm The Girl Without A 'Friend Group'

And here's why I'm OK with it


Little things remind me all the time.

For example, I'll be sitting in the lounge with the people on my floor, just talking about how everyone's days went. Someone will turn to someone else and ask something along the lines of, "When are we going to so-and-so's place tonight?" Sometimes it'll even be, "Are you ready to go to so-and-so's place now? Okay, we'll see you later, Taylor!"

It's little things like that, little things that remind me I don't have a "friend group." And it's been like that forever. I don't have the same people to keep me company 24 hours of the day, the same people to do absolutely everything with, and the same people to cling to like glue. I don't have a whole cast of characters to entertain me and care for me and support me. Sometimes, especially when it feels obvious to me, not having a "friend group" makes me feel like a waste of space. If I don't have more friends than I can count, what's the point in trying to make friends at all?

I can tell you that there is a point. As a matter of fact, just because I don't have a close-knit clique doesn't mean I don't have any friends. The friends I have come from all different walks of life, some are from my town back home and some are from across the country. I've known some of my friends for years, and others I've only known for a few months. It doesn't really matter where they come from, though. What matters is that the friends I have all entertain me, care for me, and support me. Just because I'm not in that "friend group" with all of them together doesn't mean that we can't be friends to each other.

Still, I hate avoiding sticking myself in a box, and I'm not afraid to seek out friendships. I've noticed that a lot of the people I see who consider themselves to be in a "friend group" don't really venture outside the pack very often. I've never had a pack to venture outside of, so I don't mind reaching out to new people whenever.

I'm not going to lie, when I hear people talking about all the fun they're going to have with their "friend group" over the weekend, part of me wishes I could be included in something like that. I do sometimes want to have the personality type that allows me to mesh perfectly into a clique. I couldn't tell you what it is about me, but there is some part of me that just happens to function better one-on-one with people.

I hated it all my life up until very recently, and that's because I've finally learned that not having a "friend group" is never going to be the same as not having friends.

5 Things You Need To Know About Thinx Underwear

Those of you with a uterus, listen up.


I first heard about Thinx underwear two years ago while on a subway in Washington DC. I thought the whole idea of leakproof underwear sounded a bit too much like diapers and brushed the product aside. Fast forward two years, my mom states that she is going to buy a pair to try and offered to get me one too. With nothing to lose and everything to gain, I decided to give it a try. I'm sure glad I did!

If you're not familiar with Thinx allow me to explain. It's a company that prides themselves on creating underwear specifically designed for individuals to wear during their periods. Looking at the reviews, everyone seemed to love them, and after trying them out for myself, I must say I like them quite a lot. Here are a few important things to know about Thinx underwear.

1. It doesn’t always replace your pads/tampons

Thinx may not replace tampons, but it can help cut back the amount you use.


I learned this the hard way that if you have a heavy flow, you can't wear Thinx on its own. If you have a light flow, you could get away with only wearing these, but for us poor souls with heavy flows, I recommend making these your new period underwear. You never have to worry about any leaks, even at night!

2. They don't stain

Behold! No bloodstains!


If you leak onto this underwear, fear not. Merely rinse them in the sink and then throw them in the wash like normal and boom! Clean underwear. No more ugly stained underwear to keep in the corner of your drawer.

3. There’s a bunch of cute designs/colors

There's something for everyone!


One thing I must say about Thinx is that they have a wide variety of options. There are several different cuts, and almost all of them come in different colors options as well. They seem to be introducing new colors all the time, so keep an eye out for one you like.

4. They are super comfy!

These feel just like normal underwear.


When I got my pair, I was worried that this underwear would feel like wearing a diaper or something else uncomfortable, but that was not the case at all! This underwear when you're wearing it feels like normal underwear, and while you're washing it, it feels like a swimsuit.

5. They donate to a good cause

Everyone should have access to period products. Period.


For every pair of underwear that you buy, the company donates a pair to someone in need. It seems like most are sent to developing countries where women do not have access to proper menstruation hygiene products. In addition to this, Thinx was designed to help cut back the number of disposable pads entering landfills. They designed this underwear to be a more sustainable alternative for people with periods!
