Food Review

I have all my cookbooks in storage so I have turned to Pinterest for new ideas.  Over the past few weeks I've tried a dozen or so, everything from breakfasts to desserts.  One or two were just okay but overall they have been very tasty.

I won't review each one but here are my top favorite three.

#1 Skinny Taste's Whole Wheat Pancakes (source)

These pancakes are SO good.  I've already made them 4 times.  Now I'm at the point where I make multiple batches at a time.  I make one for that morning and put together 2 extra bags of dry mix to keep on hand so I don't have to pull all the ingredient out again.  The girls love these so they go fast.

#2 Iowa Girl Eat's Green Monster Spinach Smoothie (source)

Here is another recipe that has already been made on a regular basis.  Almond milk is new to me but I was curious and decided to give it a try.  It's too sweet to drink on it's own but really adds a creaminess to the smoothie.  These are very filling and there is honestly not even a hint of spinach taste.

#3 Clookbook's Buffalo Chicken Sandwich (source)

I love spicy foods.  I'm not a fan of chicken wings but I do their flavor.  This recipe is simple, fast and delicious.  I usually have all the ingredient on hand so now I have a new go to meal when I don't feel like making a quesidilla.

Runner up Closet Cooking's Jalapeño Popper Grill Cheese Sandwich (source)

I made this sandwich for Jeff for Father's Day.  They require a little more work and have more calories then I should consume on a regular basis but they are perfect for causal celebrations like game days.  I think they'd make good appetizers if cut into smaller stripes.  If you like Jalapeño poppers you must try these.

I've been trying to pin food that I intend to make, not just because it's pretty.  My goal is to try 80% of my pins by the end of the summer.  The dessert board is gonna be tough.  I guess I'll need to plan more get togethers with friends.
