Pinterest: It's What's For Dinner

I've tried quite a few recipes from Pinterest lately, and surprisingly enough, I haven't struck out with any of them yet.  Easy is the theme with these recipes, which is the number one quality I look for when trying out new dishes.  These have my stamp of approval, and they will definitely be added to the normal rotation around here.  If you try them and don't like them, don't come crying to me I hope we'll still be friends.

1. Crockpot Italian Chicken - So simple.  I've already made this one three times.  Lovin' it!

2. Slow Cooker Potato Soup - Great for hanging out in your fat pants on a rainy day.  Hypothetically speaking, of course.

3. Crockpot Lasagna - My cousin mentioned making a crockpot lasagna on Facebook a few weeks ago, so I thought I'd check Pinterest for a recipe.  This stuff is the  I seriously didn't expect it to be so delicious.  We had this for dinner two nights in a row this week, and hubs and I may or may not have helped ourselves to seconds both nights.  It's even Izzy-approved.  Can I get an amen?

( I used 2 jars of Bertolli Olive Oil and Garlic pasta sauce, and I used ground beef instead of sausage.)

4. Lime Infused, Honey Crusted Chicken - I made kabobs with this recipe, and hubs grilled them up.  Served them over brown rice.  Pretty tasty.

(I used chipotle chili pepper instead of cayenne pepper)

5. Easy Cheesy Zucchini Bake - I liked this one more than hubs did, but he doesn't get too excited about veggies.

6. Peanut Butter and Chocolate Filled Crescent Rolls - I've also tried these with nutella, and as you can imagine...ah-mazing.
Pretty self-explanatory, but click here for recipe

7. S'mores Cookie Bars - You might remember me drooling over these little puppies in this post, but I thought it couldn't hurt to give them another shout-out.  Delish!

8. Mini Pumpkin Pies - So cute and so tasty!  These would be perfect for a holiday party or any sort of shower.  You make them the same way you make your regular pumpkin pie, but you just cut the dough in little circles and fit them in the muffin tin cups.  The best thing about these little babies is that they are small, so if you have two or three of them, you've technically only eaten one slice of pie.  No?  Crap.

Follow the recipe on the back of the can, and double the cinnamon and ginger

If you try any of the recipes, I'd love to hear from you.
