9. I make fun of Pinterest...

...to Mrs. Bill C sometimes because when she's looking for a new recipe, what she tends to find from people are simply recipes with a bunch of words I like mashed together. Red velvet cookie dough cheesecake brownie cake pie. Bacon cheddar pierogi chicken and dumplings casserole bites. But at this point I have no leverage because...

a) She finds a lot of awesome stuff on there, too (including the goat cheese & chive biscuits she made last weekend).

b) Buffalo Chicken Puff Pastry Waffles

I'm both excited and mortified, Serious Eats.
