Ten-Pin Tuesday

I'm introducing a new feature here at WhimsiKel.  While Ten on Tuesday got me posting more regularly, it's actually kind of difficult to think up ten noteworthy items every week.  Go figure, right?  So my new plan (Ten-Pin Tuesday) is to post ten noteworthy PINS every week.  That shouldn't be nearly so difficult.
 (Please follow the source link or the "my pin" link to pin these - 
they aren't my projects or ideas, and I shouldn't get credit.  Thanks!)

1.  "And snap! The job's a game!"

What a clever idea! 

2.  Weight Watchers Red Velvet Cake.  4 points!

3.  Paula Deen's Not Yo' Mama's Banana Pudding.

Seriously, if the Chessman cookies don't grab you, what about the fact that there's cream cheese AND sweetened condensed milk in this recipe?  It's definitely on my menu for Thanksgiving this year.

4.  Make-Ahead Oatmeal Smoothies

Have any of you made oatmeal smoothies?  I gave it a shot one week, and it was fairly successful.  A little gritty, but still tasty and filling.  But letting it soak overnight has potential to take care of the grittiness.  Plus she puts chia seeds in hers which help the texture, she says.  So I'm game to try this if someone wants to donate some chia seeds for the cause.  I don't want to buy a whole bag and then decide I hate them, ya know?

5.  Microwave Oatmeal Muffin

This recipe has gone viral!  But if you haven't tried it, here are my proportions (which are heavier on the oats and brown sugar than the original): 1/2 cup oats, 1 egg, 1 Tbsp brown sugar, handful of blueberries, splash of milk, dash of cinnamon. Mix it all up in a shallow mug (or coffee mug) and microwave for 2-2.5 minutes.

6.  How to pick and cut a watermelon.

 Anyone else ever wondered?  These girls explain it perfectly.  

7.  Trick to store bobbins.  Genius!


8.  Bobby Pin 101

I had no idea!  I'm growing my bangs out, so I currently have a bobby pin in my hair everyday.  I saw this pin, and immediately tried it.  It makes such a difference!


9.  40 books you won't be able to put down.

I don't think I'll love them ALL, but there are several here worth checking out if you're looking for something new.  And yes, Harry Potter and The Hunger Games are both on here. 

10.  Having a bad day?
