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.
