Pinterest FAIL

I, like the rest of the American female population, am OBSESSED with Pinterest. I feel so motivated, inspired, moved... Who am I kidding... I just zone out and pin things I know I'll never cook, wear, decorate with, or make.

But ONCE in a blue moon, I do try something, and it's usually some sort of recipe.

This time, I attempted something called "Honey Cinnamon Roasted Chickpeas." They're supposed to taste crunchy, sweet, and somewhat like roasted nuts. I thought that sounded super cool, especially when coupled with this beautiful picture:


So, I grabbed the recipe and the ingredients, and did "exactly" as they said (I'm not very good with details).

But what I made was not a food. I had created little dots of what tasted like dirt turds, rolled in some honey. Here, see for yourself:

These little beauties are even worse tasting than they look... Oh well, in another 8 months, I'll try another. Slow and steady, slow and steady.

*I'd like to note... it's probably more USER ERROR than bad recipe...
