Tuscan Pasta With Tomato-Basil Cream Sauce

I feel like I haven’t divulged too much of myself, so here we go:

I’m addicted to Pinterest.

I like to consider myself part of the “early adopters” phase of Pinterest and I still cannot get enough. For example, I’m currently wearing Marshmallow by Essie nail polish (pinned to BEAUTYful), my workout the other day was the Self 30-minute treadmill interval workout (pinned to Fit Fit), and my outfit today: brown boots, skinny jeans, hot pink cardigan and leopard scarf (pinned to Stylista) — all discovered on Pinterest. When I found out my cousin Todd would be in town from California and I offered to host dinner, it was a no-brainer that the recipe would come from Pinterest and it was unbelievable:
