See it, Pin it, Do it!

Only a week to go until the end of the month and Half Term is almost over. Already?! Welcome to the very first edition of See it, Pin, Do it!


One day last week I was making the dinner, which only involved cooking some rice and heating up the batch cooked chilli I’d defrosted. I had some leftover cream in the fridge and time on my hands. A dangerous combination it seems. I wanted something quick that I could make with what I had in the cupboard.

I had a vague memory of once seeing a TV chef make a chocolate pudding mixture and then pour boiling water over it, before putting in the oven. I turned to Google and came up with this recipe. It took about 10 minutes to throw together and the only thing I did differently was to put it in one large dish and bake for a bit longer.

It was delicious with cream poured over and would be even nicer with some vanilla ice cream. It’s best eaten straight from the oven, slightly cooled. I think it might have been a bit stodgy once it had gone cold. I didn’t have the chance to find out!

My Mum went gluten free a little while ago and has felt all the better for it, so I pinned another version to try next time. There will definitely be a next time.

Over to you now. Have you made something, from an idea you’ve pinned, this month? Just comment here to let me know and if you’ve blogged it (and the post includes an image) I’ll pin you to the SIPIDI board.* It could be something you pinned ages ago or just yesterday and you can join in any time.

I’ve seen one post already, thank you Gemma, and I’m hoping there will be more to come, over the next couple of weeks.  Looking forward to seeing what you’ve created this month.

*That sounds like some form of cruel and unusual punishment.

The chocolate pudding looks yummy, I'll be posting a LO, that was inspired by something I pinned, on Monday. Maybe I'll link back then if that's o.k?

I'm always trying things out from Pinterest, or pinning things to try later, so count me in!

We don't all have to do the same thing though, do we?

I had a look at the gluten-free chocolate pudding recipe 'cos we're wheat-free too. Just be aware that buckwheat flour is NOT gluten-free.

My favourite g/f flour mix is 3/4 rice flour to 1/4 arrowroot. You can replace one of the quarters of rice flour with millet flour for a nuttier flavour.

That looks great. I was just thinking about how I have never used any of my pins and then I remembered I have a rather large tattoo on my back that was inspired by a pin on Pinterest :) x

Oh my gosh - this makes me want chocolate NOW!!! :o)

I'm making a chicken dish for dinner tonight that I have pinned so I will grab a few photos before we devour it. I probably won't blog it until at least next week, but I will be sure to come back and leave a link. (Or it might be next month but one way or another I will add it to your SIPIDI line up!) Thanks for the inspiration and gentle push to actually make some of those Pinterest recipes! :o)
