Summer Inspirations (and how to embed a Pinterest board on your wordpress blog)

How to Embed a Pinterest Pin Board in Wordpress Blog Post
I was playing around with Pinterest today (note the neat ‘Pin It’ stuff to make it easy to pin Dabbled stuff!) because I was thinking it could be cool to use Pinterest as a way to create inspiration link posts (like I used to do all the time when I had more time to devote to surfing my feed reader).  So with a little bit of research I came up with a cool and easy way to do just that.  So first enjoy the Pins below, then after that, look below to see how to easy embed Pinterest pin boards into your blog posts!… [ KEEP READING ]

Mother’s Day brunch ideas

Mother's Day brunch ideas
Some Mother’s Day indulgent brunch ideas from the always fab Just Jenn:
For some reason Mother’s Day is always about a *light* brunch, yeesh -what if your mom likes super-heavy fried chicken+mashed potatoes+biscuits like me?? Hm. Whatever – tradition says dainty, light ‘brunch, brunch, brunch’ so here are a few of my fave sweet brunch recipes. (You can always serve it with a side of fried chicken.) Go get them all here:  Mother’s Day Brunch  
I love this idea – which would be perfect for a brunch, especially if mom is a fan of bacon:
At Can You Stay For Dinner:And no, I’ll never again share a photo of two sweet ‘n’ gritty cornbread pancakes acting as the bread in which I stuffed crisp applewood smoked bacon strips, thick slices of vine ripened tomatoes, crispy green leaf lettuce, and crumbly blue cheese.

Filled “Carrot” for Easter Bunny brunch

This is a fabulous idea! Check out this adorable ‘carrot’ filled with egg salad from Hungry Happenings– a fun addition to an easter brunch, maybe?
From the site: There is only one spring day that starts off with your family running around the yard in search of decorated eggs. Easter Sunday is quite unique in that respect.  After our Easter egg hunts we have always gathered up our decorated eggs and whisked them off to the kitchen to add some Miracle Whip before turning them into deviled eggs or egg salad.  It’s a simple recipe, just two ingredients, but one I still enjoy even though my palate has been expanded immensely over the years.

Jello Easter Eggs

Jello Easter Eggs
Love this idea from Duhlicious! Jello Easter Eggs made in the shell… and plus the idea of making them into Jello shots?  Awesomeness.  Will have to try these! Go read the whole thing and get the instructions: Jello Easter Eggs  

Peeps in Formal Wear!

Peeps in Formal Wear!
Check out these jazzed up Peep bunnies in tuxedos!  These would be perfect for Easter, or maybe even a fun treat for a spring wedding! Love this idea… Should definitely come up with some variations using other types of Peeps :) From Babble:
Until this Sunday, when the kids and I dressed them in little tuxedoes of white and dark chocolate.  Suddenly, I couldn’t get enough of them. I’m not embarrassed to admit I let each of the kids eat one, while I bit the crunchy little tuxedos off of a handful of Peeps all by my lonesome.  Turns out, plain old Peeps are kinda cute to look at, but dress them up with a dandy coat of chocolate, and suddenly you’ve got a treat you won’t be able to resist.
