Pinterest Recipe Triumphs, Fourth Edition

Hey Ya’ll. It’s that time again. Every once in a while I share some recipes I’ve gotten from Pinterest that turned out GREAT and that I will definitely make again in the future! I hope you find something you enjoy as well!

(You can find my past Pinterest Recipe Triumphs here, here and here.)

1. Baked Teriyaki Chicken. You guys, this was sooooooo good. Like, this could have been from a restaurant good. I’ve tried several chicken teriyaki recipes over the years and this was definitely my fav. Try it.

2. Chicken Broccoli Pasta with Lemon Butter Sauce. Sometimes pasta can be super heavy and leave you feeling weighed down after you eat it, but that is not the case with this pasta! It made a pretty large batch, so I’ll probably half it the next time I make it. I felt like it needed a little bit more kick, so I’ll pump up the volume on the lemon and chili flakes as well.

3. Favorite Marinated Vegetables. I couldn’t believe how easy and tasty this was! If you get tired of the same old vegetables plus ranch dressing you have to try this: your favorite vegetables + italian dressing + marinate in the refrigerator overnight = delicious.

4. Sparkling Cider. I served this recently at my mom’s birthday party and it was a hit! Perfect for a fall party! This recipe calls for apple cider + sparkling water (sparkling tonic). At the party we served apple cider + champagne, which was equally fantastic.

Let me know if you try one of these and what you thought! Happy cooking!

Pinterest Recipe Triumphs, Third Edition

It’s been a while since I’ve shared some of the great recipes I’ve found through Pinterest, so I thought I’d do a little post today! If you missed my last two Pinterest Recipe Triumphs, you can find them here and here.

Shrimp and Asparagus Stir Fry

Funny story about this recipe. I went to make it and ended up not having any shrimp to use. I’d already made up the sauce and had started cooking the asparagus, so I just made the asparagus on its own and it was AMAZING. I haven’t made this recipe with the shrimp yet, but I’ve made the asparagus twice. It’s my new favorite way to prepare asparagus.

Avocado Basil Pasta

This pasta was so delicious and easy to make! I left out the bacon, which made it a great meatless meal. This could also be a great side dish to replace the typical pasta salad!

Oven Baked Chicken Fajitas

I just made this one this week. I love this recipe because it only requires a cutting board and 9×13!

Now that we’re settled into our new place I’m excited to get back into the routine of cooking again!
