Pinterest Recipe Triumphs

My cooking skills have really improved since I got married in July. I’m no chef, but I have added a lot of recipes to the list of things I can make with confidence!

My mom taught me to cook quite a few meals when I was in middle school and I mastered several crock pot concoctions in college. Every week I cook something I know, and I experiment with something new. Pinterest has been my main source for new recipes.

I don’t know if this has been your experience, but not all Pinterest recipes are as great as they look! There are thousands of recipes on Pinterest, but I some times have a hard time finding realistic recipes. I’m a very low-maintenance cook. I like recipes to include few ingredients (it gets too expensive!), nothing weird (I’m sorry but I’m just not interested in quinoa), and a short prep (I’m hungry now!!) and cook time (unless its in the crock pot). Since I’m pretty picky when it comes to cooking, I thought I’d share some of my favorite recipes that I found on Pinterest!! Enjoy! (You can click on the pictures to get to the websites!)

Shrimp

This is actually just a screen shot and not a link. Don’t you hate it when pins don’t lead you to an actual website? BUT you don’t really need a website because the caption says it all! I’ve made this shrimp twice already. It’s delicious, easy to make, and doesn’t take much time to prepare or bake!

Gluten-Free-Peanut-Butter-Cookies

I’ve actually been making these for years and was excited to see the recipe on Pinterest! I love these peanut butter cookies because I always have all of the ingredients on hand, so I can make them if I need a last minute dessert. The only ingredients are peanut butter, one egg, vanilla extract, and sugar!

These really do taste like Red Lobster biscuits! They were easier to make than I expected and made a great addition to our meal.

You need to make this pie, like, now. It’s seriously so easy and delicious. Only five ingredients and 2 of them I always have on hand. It’s easily one of my favorite desserts!

meat potato vegetable

I saved the best for last. I’m not the best at making a meat, potato, vegetable meal, but this one is really great because it’s all in one dish. Unfortunately, it takes an hour to bake, so it’s not the best meal if I am getting home late. (My mom used asparagus instead of green beans and it was just as good!)

Happy cooking! If you try any of these, let me know how it turns out!

  1. I hate it when the pin just goes to a picture, too! Congrats on finishing your first year of grad school by the way!
