Tried & True: Recipes we've loved from Pinterest

This is totally a copycat blog post. My friend Linds (who i actually got to meet in real life - and LOVE her!) recently wrote a post of the same title & it was good to see what she had tried off of Pinterest! Some of them I had already pinned, but had yet to try so it was nice to hear what i should DEFINITELY do, and what isn't really worth my time. Check out her post here!

So here are some recipes I have tried from Pinterest!

Side note: If you are not on Pinterest, let me know & I will invite you. Please don't think it is another thing to waste your time with. It's a plethora of ideas all in one place & if you're adamant that you don't need one more thing, then get rid of facebook & get a Pinterest. I think it would be well worth the trade-off! (Not that I have given up Facebook. It's a love/hate relationship, though, and if something had to go, it wouldn't be Pinterest!)


Low-Carb Chicken Enchilada Bake: Two thumbs WAY up!

This is hands down one of the absolute best recipes I've tried on Pinterest - and super easy! I'm wondering why i haven't made it a second time yet!! I think I will have to do that soon! Very very good.

Cucumber, Tomato & Feta Salad: Two thumbs up!

I made this last year for a reunion and it was gone in no time! It was very good & several people commented on how delicious it was. :) Pretty tangy...but good! :)

Crockpot Tomato Basil Parmesan Soup: Two Thumbs WAY up!

I know it's summer time, and the idea of making soup anytime soon doesn't seem likely, but y'all. I can't do this post without this soup. I have made it several times now, and even brought it to a family recently. I've served it to dinner guests too. EVERYONE has absolutely loved it so far. It's Brad's favorite & he says it's better than La Madeline's (I wouldn't say THAT...not better, just different!). 

Crockpot Chicken Tacos (or as i call it, Salsa Chicken): Two thumbs up!!!

This is the best thing EVER for a simple easy lunch. Buy taco toppings you like (we use shredded cheese, guacamole, lettuce & sour cream). Throw boneless skinless chicken breasts in the crockpot, along with salsa & a little taco seasoning. When it's done cooking you just shred the chicken with a fork, put it in a wrap (or with chips as my husband likes it!) & top with your favorite toppings. SO GOOD & SO EASY! I do this now to just have on hand - it's an easy lunch to pack for work!

Rolo Cookies: Two thumbs up!!

If you need a dessert to take to an event, this is the one to make. They were super easy to make (4 ingredients) & they were a big hit at the dinner we went to! Everyone was like "who made these cookies?!?" & they were GONE before any other dessert. Great choice because it is different but still quick & easy to do! They're also pretty. :)
