I just love a good party, don’t you? I especially love a good pin-it party because it gives me a chance to find some really great blogs and pin recipes, workouts, DIY projects, and posts that I may have otherwise missed.

What’s a pin it party? Glad you asked! You round-up 5 posts from your blog that you’d like to see on Pinterest and write a short entry featuring all of those posts. Then, you visit Lindsay at The Lean Green Bean and add your blog to the linkup. After that, you visit all of the other blogs in the linkup and pin, pin, pin until your mouse runs out of batteries. It’s fun!

Here are the 5 posts I’d like to see pinned to your boards. By the way, are you following me on Pinterest? If not you can follow me here or by clicking the Pinterest “P” up there in the top right.  arrow-up-right-2  See it? 🙂


Alright! Here we go!

Need a free printable valentine? I’ve got you covered! This paper airplane valentine was inspired by my students. I actually had to make a rule that there were no paper airplanes allowed at school because it was beginning to look like O’Hare all up in my classroom. 

If you download this design and use it, tweet me a photo or tag me on Instagram (@cucina_kristina). I’d love to see how you use this design and who you give them to!

I came across this adorable origami bookmark on Pinterest and think it is the cutest. This would make a good gift for a teacher, co-worker, friend, loved one, or anyone that loves to read. I used an advertisement from a magazine (repurpose that junk-mail!), but you could use newspaper, scrapbook paper, grocery bags, wrapping paper, or any other paper product you can think of.

I have to give 100% credit of the next idea to my friend, Debbie. She’s the one that originally made these bad boys and they are my most popular post to date. You can use any gummy candy to make these and they turn out like Jell-O shots, but cuter. All you do is soak gummy candies in vodka for 48-72 hours and good times will be had by all!

Cuter than your average Jell-O shot!

The downside to winter: dreary days and long, cold nights.

The upside to winter: One pot meals! This pot roast stew is seriously awesome. Make it this weekend. Your tummy will be so happy.

Do you have a vegetablephobe in your house? Side note: Did you know the scientific word having a fear of vegetables is Lachanophobia? Me either. Now you do. Anyways, if you are looking for a way to sneak veggies into a main course, this recipe will do the trick! I used ground turkey, peppers, and carrots, but feel free to get crafty and add as many veggies as you’d like. I’m going to finely dice mushrooms and sneak those into my next batch of this stuff. Shhhh… don’t tell my husband. 🙂
