Try With Me? Starting Small!

Before I start this post, I would like to thank the person who made a comment that encouraged me to come back to my blog😭🙏🏾🙈🤭✊🏾 Mr. Ben Jones🥺💙👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾. Idk if that’s his real name or not but I’m grateful because what he said really meant the world to me and it made me feel good. Not only did it make me feel seen… It validated the things I was saying here (whether to myself or others and it let me know someone was/is watching). I also like that this is coming from a man because it lets me know, as a woman— my content appeals to men too and that made me feel really happy🥰

So thank you Ben💚.

(Also, this may be me overthinking but, should you read this Ben and you don’t identify as a man or he/his/him pronouns… then I very much so apologize).

Yesterday was my birthday, well the day before yesterday because it is 12:54 AM as I write this meaning it’s June 12, 2022. My birthday was June 10th and I’m officially 29 years old🥳🎊🎉.

But today we’re here to discuss Pinterest!!!! I really love how Pinterest motivates me to learn, create, do better and do more!!! Instagram does the same thing for me but I feel like Instagram pressures me to be better more than it inspires me to be better. However, we’re moreso here to discuss the things I’ve found on there😅!

I have a board on Pinterest titled “2022” and it’s a bunch of stuff I want to try this year. Most of it is food that I want to learn how to cook or food I really wanna taste (Some is from restaurants and some are more advanced recipes🙈).

Below are pictures that I found that look appealing and easy enough for me to try to make. Because I’m just getting my own place again, I want to cook more and I want to learn more recipes— (because I know how to cook but technically I don’t know how to cook… if that makes sense) (Black people will understand this 😂✊🏾). I’ll say it like this— I know how to cook enough to stay alive but what I know how to cook can definitely be expanded!

This post will serve as a reminder to myself that I want to do this stuff because after I write this I’m going to make a grocery list of what I need to make everything (and as I make each item, I will come back and post about it while linking this post so that people know what sparked it🙈).

Now, let’s get into the good stuff😋🥴🤤. Here’s photos of what I’d like to make. Some will have recipes and others won’t because they didn’t come with them. So the ones without official recipes…. I’ll be guessing😂😭.
