Pinteresting Finds and My First Pinterest Challenge!

Happy Tuesday Jeans and Tees and Travel and Cakes Readers! Hope your week got off to a great start. As I mentioned in last week's edition of Pinteresting Finds I will now be doing a Pinterest Challenge every Tuesday, to prove that people do put their pins to good use. This week I did a double challenge, one taken from my Beauty Board and the other from my Foodie Fun Board

Challenge #1. Nail Love

I saw this nail design and I had to try it, it didn't seem too complicated so I thought it would be perfect for my first Challenge. I chose to use my Chanel "May" nail polish and my O.P.I for Sephora "Only Gold for Me" polish to take on this challenge. It wasn't too difficult and I was very satisfied with the result, which got quite a few compliments. 

Here's the result and the original pin. Try it out and sparkle!

When I saw this next pin my mouth literally watered, I had to try this for myself. The pin comes from The Pink and Blue Blog and the recipe was really quite simple. Since I am currently living in France, I thought French Toast would be the perfect Pinterest Food Challenge to try. 

Here's the original pin, the recipe and the result. I suggest you all try this fun take on a classic, you and your tummy will not be disappointed. 

The Original from the Pink and Blue Blog.
The Recipe:
French Toast Soufflé
makes 4 individual servings

1 small loaf of french bread, cut into 1-inch cubes (5 cups)
4 large eggs
1 cup of half and half
1/4 cup of maple syrup (plus more for serving)
1 teaspoon of vanilla
2 teaspoons of cinnamon

For Serving :
1/4 cup of powdered sugar
maple syrup

In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, half and half, maple syrup, vanilla and cinnamon.  Add bread cubes and toss until all of the cubes are coated.  Pour into individual ramekins or one souffle dish.

Cover and chill in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour and up to overnight.  Bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes (for individual ramekins), 30-35 for one larger souffle.

Serve warm with powdered sugar and maple syrup.

The Result: My French Toast Souffle. 

The Result was Yummy!
Now here is this week's Pinteresting Finds. Enjoy and Happy Pinning!
