First Post

Yes, the title says it all, this is my first blog post. And even though I enjoy writing, why do I feel like I have to turn in a research paper before Midnight?

Staring at a blank screen is no fun.

So let me start by saying how much I love Pinterest! If you haven’t checked it out, it is the most organized way to bookmark your favorite crafts, recipes, home decor ideas and inspiration in general. Warning: It is highly addictive.

If you are on Pinterest, you’re probably like me. You have dozens of boards filled with ideas that you don’t have time to create. One of my resolutions this year, is to make time for new things,including blogging, new recipes and new adventures in life.

So tonight, I made Sopapilla, a delicious pastry filled with sweetened cream cheese and topped with sugar and cinnamon. It was delicious!

I hope you stick around and follow me through this new blogging adventure. Stay tuned…

Here’s the recipe:
