Pinterest is an excellent resource for finding and saving yummy-looking recipes. Before pinterest, I would frequently find recipes I wanted to try, but I did not have a good way to save the recipes so that I wouldn’t forget about them.
Now, all the recipes I want to try are saved on my boards; it’s easy to browse my boards when I am menu planning to find the new recipes I want to try in a given week.
Here are ten of my favorite recipes that pinterest has allowed me to try:
1. Saucy BBQ Joes – Jason and I loved this one! The recipe calls for Velveeta, a product I don’t care to buy. When I made this I did have some processed cheese in the house (leftover American cheese from a family get together), but when I make this again, I will use cheddar cheese in the place of processed cheese.
2. Almond Flour Waffles – My mouth is watering just thinking about these waffles! I think this may now be my favorite waffle recipe. (Just to let you know, if you make these, almond flour waffle batter spreads out a great deal on the waffle iron. So put less in the waffle iron than you think it needs . . . otherwise the batter may just come pouring out of the waffle iron.)
3. Strawberry Rhubarb Swirl Ice Cream – Jason loves rhubarb, and he thought this was the best homemade ice cream I’ve made.
4. Cream Cheese Banana Bread – This is the best banana bread I have ever tried! I made it for Jason’s family one time and substituted maple flavoring for the vanilla extract; I liked it better with the maple flavoring.
5. Grilled Caprese Chicken - I can’t wait to try this one again! I didn’t have the fresh basil the time I made it, yet I still loved it. The grilled tomatoes took this recipe right over the top.
6. Pumpkin Spice Bread – This makes a very moist pumpkin bread. I’m glad I stumbled across this recipe online.
7. Slow Cooker Caesar Chicken Sandwiches – A very easy recipe. Throw everything in the crockpot and then forget about it until it’s time to eat.
8. Chinese Lemon Pepper Shrimp – The sauce for this shrimp is amazing! I want to try make the sauce to serve over chicken as well, but I haven’t given that a try yet. When I first tasted this recipe, I thought it was one of the best recipes I’ve ever made in my life.
9. Eggs Benedict Casserole – My first time making hollandaise sauce was for this recipe. It was so good! Making the sauce takes a little extra effort, but it is definitely worth it.
10. Cobb Breakfast Casserole – I found this when looking for a breakfast casserole that did not have bread in it. When I found this, I knew I had to give it a try, and it’s one of the best breakfast casseroles I’ve ever had. It combines unique inredients for a casserole. Give this a try.
And one bonus . . .
11. South of the Border Sandwiches – When I made this sandwich, Jason commented that it puts Subway to shame.
Now my mouth is watering. Thinking about all these yummy recipes makes me want to head to the kitchen to make something wonderful to eat.
