Pinterest Meals Part 2

December 28th, 2011

Pinterest has revolutionized my life in many ways, and one of those is cooking. I have never really loved cooking, and I just now started to enjoy it because of two reasons…1. I LOVE, LOVE my kitchen. 2. I’m finding the best recipes on Pinterest.

I shared some of my discoveries back in October, and I’m happy to say that I have found some new favorites.

BUT first, I’d like to show off a bit of my new found passion for cooking with a couple pictures from my Christmas dinner.

I made a lemon-garlic roast chicken with a white wine reduction, Greek stuffing and a Greek salad. (Can you tell my family is Greek?)

It was a wonderful first Christmas in our new home!

Okay, and now for some of my new recipe favorites…

1. Spicy Dr.Pepper Shredded Pork – I saw this recipe, and thought, “As bizarre as it sounds, I really want to try that!” Um…It’s flippin’ awesome. It’s the best pulled pork I’ve ever eaten. Tip: I only used one can of adobo chipotle peppers. That was PLENTY!

2. Lemon & Rosemary Chicken Bake – This recipe is one of the EASIEST ones out there. You can’t mess it up, which is something that quickly wins me over. Besides, everything tastes good with rosemary on it. Tip: I added some carrots to this as well.

3. Lasagna Soup – Man, I have made this recipe about four times already. That’s how much we love it. It’s perfect for the winter too. Tip: Use ground turkey instead of ground beef. It’s less fat and tastes awesome. Also leave out the sugar. It’s added unnecessary calories.

4. Slow Cooker French Dip - The meat is SO tasty, and you don’t need to stand next to the stove and cook it. This is the perfect recipe if you want a lot of leftovers too. Tip: Butter the rolls before placing the meat on top, and nix the cheese.

That’s it for now, but I’m hopeful that I’ll have many more to share soon!

Have you found any tasty recipes on pinterest? If so, share them with me!!!


  • I SO agree girl!! You inspired me on your last post to search Pinterest for recipes and so now it’s the first place I go! I just made Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas that I found there and it was SO good! I’ll shoot it your way if you want! :) Thanks for the inspiration! I’m learning to like cooking a bit more just recently too. So thanks for the encouragement through your blog and through your life! xo

  • Hahaha! YAY!!! Looking at all of the recipes I posted, and I noticed all of them contain meat. I should post more for you vegans out there. =) I’d love your recipe too! Send me the link and I’ll pin it. =)
