Pinterest Recipes We Flat-Out Refuse To Even Try

7 Easy Pinterest Recipes I Won't Be Making

Look, we love Pinterest as much as the next craft/food/fashion-obsessed person does, but faithful readers of CraftFail (and people who have ever actually visited Pinterest) know that the recipes you find there almost always claim to be “easy,” and that they almost NEVER ARE.

Take my own personal meaty brownie roll cake, for example. A simple brownie rolled up with ice cream and peanut butter filling – the appearance of which my own mother described as “two armadillos in a snowstorm.”

Not. Easy.

But over on NickMom, we found a whole list of “easy” Pinterest recipes that aren’t even worth trying for various reasons, such as:

Pinterest mango salad

Or maybe:

Pinterest pickles

Yes, we couldn’t agree more. Check out the rest of these “easy” Pinterest recipes and tell us – ARE ANY OF THESE EVEN POSSIBLE? Seriously, we’d like to know.

    Dicing a mango is actually both quick and easy, if you know the secret!
    Cut it almost in half on each side of the pit, and twist it apart. Take the two halves and cut a grid in the flesh, making sure that your knife goes deep but doesn’t pierce the skin (I guess that part is a bit tricky the first few times). Hold it fleshy side up and bend it back. Then you can just scrape the pieces off and into the bowl.

    OMG Rosie I’m not even kidding, you just changed my life. Do you have any idea how many times I’ve gotten practically my entire body sticky from giving up on cutting a mango and just trying to eat it straight out of the skin?!? Here’s something I bet you already knew: they were NOT meant to be eaten that way. Thanks for sharing this trick!

    I have to admit that I actually am working on finding my perfect from-scratch pancake recipe. I’m a much bigger fan of pancakes than my husband, who generally prefers to eat whatever breakfast meat I cook on the side. So that means I don’t end up making pancakes on a regular enough basis to justify keeping Bisquick around, but since I do make homemade bread on a fairly regular basis, I usually have the ingredients to make pancakes, too.

    Becky, I suggest you try this Griddlecakes recipe from the Fanny Farmer Boston Cooking School Cookbook.

    put in a mixing bowl:
    1 1/4 cup milk
    2 Tbsp melted butter
    1 egg
    + beat lightly
    Sift together:
    1 cup flour
    2 tsp baking powder
    2 Tbsp sugar
    1/2 tsp salt
    add to milk mixture, and stir to mix.
    add more milk if necessary to the consistency of heavy cream.
    cook on moderate heat, flip when bubbles pop on top side.

    These come out great, been making them with this recipe for years!
