Broccoli Pasta from PINTEREST

You heard right, I have taken another step towards joining normal society by making myself a Pinterest account. I may or may not have condemned myself...good bye, GPA. But HELLO to an awesome new way for discovering cool recipes! Kind of a win/lose situation, eh?

I remembered to steam my brocoli this time at least

It was a combination of a certain someone (SHAMPA, FREAKING, ROY!), and the fact that the image-based searching looked so elegant and effortless. Now that I'm in school and not sitting in an office from 9am-5pm, I don't have time to slowly peruse food blogs, reading entry by entry. As enjoyable as that was, I wanted a way to find appealing recipes at a faster pace. 

Now though, I have already caught a glimpse at the cocaine-addicting nature Pinterest can be. It sucks your soul...bends time... overwhelms your basic's a gift and the devil's curse I tell you. So I am proceeding with caution; hopefully I won't fail all my classes because of this.

Either way, I found this brocoli pasta recipe and decided to make it for two of my HMAP friends before we headed off to a meeting together. Unfortunately, I don't think they turned out as good as I had hoped. My friends were really nice about it, but I think they were just being nice. It's not that the pasta tasted bad, it just didn't taste great. It was just being a Hufflepluff, not really offending anyone, but not doing anything spectacular either.  #realtalk

Difficulty: 4
Willingness to make again: 5
Over-all: 6
1. One of the main problems was that the ratio was off: too much pasta, not enough ingredients.
2. Because of the bulk issue, also needed more salt and more cheese.
3. I boiled the pasta for too long, without realizing I also needed to fry it. Next time when I boil it, I will  leave it slightly harder, because frying it will continue to cook it.

Love these girlies! We'll be sure to have more baking/cooking parties this semester. And next time I will redeem my cooking for realsies! #HMAPlove
