|Inspired by the wonderful Hyperbole and a half.|
I have a love/hate relationship with Pinterest.
On the one hand, it's fun to browse, there's usually at least one clever pin in your feed, and if you're planning (or scheming) a wedding, it's quite helpful.
On the other hand, some of the pins are crazy and completely unfeasible. Proof: Pinterest you are drunk or Pintester. We're talking housewife-on-steroids, craft-room-explosion, thoughtful-writing-on-everything crazy. Amy Odell wrote a interesting article this week entitled "How Pinterest is Killing Feminism," which is worth a read.
I don't agree with everything the article says, but I do think that there is an odd trend where we pin all these perfect images but then never actually do anything with them. It can also be annoying when you search for something and you get the same image pinned dozens of times. I'm also a bit skeptical of all those pins that claim they changed someone's life or came out perfect.
|Bless the pins that have a sense of humor about their own craziness.|
However, I am guilty of this pointless "ooh that's pretty" pinning. In my defense, I am actually planning a wedding, I do save recipes for future testing, and I like tumblr-esque silliness. And I am now going to share a few of my gluten-free pins for your general amusement and/or "pinspiration," because it rationalizes the whole thing a little. Maybe.
Vegan Dark Chocolate Coconut Treats
Gluten-Free Gooey Brownies
Pink Lemonade Jello Shots
because they are hilarious
because it's Fall and if I don't blog about Pumpkin I'll get kicked off the internet
Vegetarian Coconut Curry Noodles
use wheat-free soy sauce
giant chips, anyone?
A Very Autumnal Cocktail
use gluten-free Maker's Mark
Blood Orange Margarita
falls under the category of "so pretty!"
