We Won't Be Making These Again

I saw these apple roses on Pinterest and thought they would be a fun, little project to do with the kids.   Though I do think they look like the pictures, they were hard to assemble and tasted bland and doughy.  The verdict is in-- we will not be making these ever again.
Here are the kids' latest drawings.




My Aunt Tanya took me out to lunch today.  It was an unexpected surprise... but a much needed few hours.  We went to Panera Bread and had soup and sandwiches.  After, we went to See's Candy to pick out a few pounds of candy.  Like I need it.  :) 
With that said, our family is thoroughly enjoying every piece.  My favorite is the Rum Nougat.  What's yours?
School will be out in a couple of weeks.  Galina takes her CAHSEE next week and the week after is finals for all the high school home schoolers.

  2. I have been often tempted to make those apple roses. Thanks for saving me the time. Though yours turned out *perfect* in picture, how interesting they didn't TASTE good--the whole purpose of any recipe! I love the site--all the pictures and stories of things that fail (usually quite humorously) with pinterest pins.

  3. Great drawings! Your kids are all so artistic.

  4. Wow, you have a bunch of budding artists!! I love the pics

  5. Isn't it just so disappointing when you go to a lot of trouble to make something and then it's a disappointment? I guess we all have had a few of those over the years. They certainly do look pretty though. The art work is amazing! They are all so talented!! I can hardly draw a stick man. Good luck to everyone on their exams........then it's summer holidays!!!:-)

  6. Those roses look absolutely AMAZING and I want to make them despite your review! Surely with a little more brown sugar, vanilla, cinnamon or something - they'd have to taste better and they are SO appealing! Or - ice cream! Add ice cream and they'd have to taste nice!

  7. Hi, I've just found your blog, what a beautiful family you have. My daughter made those roses for Mother's day, and our opinion was exactly the same as yours! Some things look better than they taste!


I find your comments so inspiring! Thanks for visiting our family blog, and sharing your thoughts.
