Pinteresting Recipes

I don't talk about it much here on the blog, but I cook a lot. Weekday cooking, Shabbos cooking, challah, desserts, you name it. Pinterest has been my favorite thing ever for finding, organizing and actually trying new recipes!

So, I figured I'd give y'all a peek into some of the recipes I've been trying from good 'ol Pinterest-land

First, up, this baby, which I just made again tonight:

Mexican Lasagna from Annie's Eats.  It's rare that you find a recipe that's easy, full of vegetables, and INSANELY DELICIOUS. The modification I make is that instead of several layers of noodles, I just do two--one on the bottom and one on the top sandwiching the filling. I prefer more stuff and less noodles!  But seriously? Go make this and report back:)  (And I'll add that Annie's blog is spectacular in general!)

Find the pin here.

Next up, a Pioneer Woman recipe!

Butternut squash quesadillas. These were a great way to add some veggies and unusual flavor to a basic easy meal. Loved them and will definitely make them again!  Find the pin here.

I also discovered these  Cheesy Stuffed Peppers, which are a great way to de-carbify (is that a word?) stuffed shells--just use peppers instead of the shells!  My modification to these is that I make them in big peppers because I don't have the mental stamina to stuff 20 tiny peppers. Just the way it is:)

See the pin here. These are from Busy in Brooklyn, a wonderful kosher cooking blog!

I was SUPER excited to try this One Pot Pasta, which went around all over the web, but it just didn't come out right for me--too oily. But it looks so good I'm kind of tempted to try it again?

Find the pin here.

I was also very excited about these Oreo Stuffed Cookies, but somehow they were just too much for me. My guests loved them though, so I'm probably just a chocolate-chip-cookie-purist weirdo:)  These are from the fabulous Bakerella--her blog is pure baking indulgence!  Find the pin here.

And speaking of upcoming recipes, I'm trying this Peanut Butter Smoothie over the weekend and can't wait!  Also from the fabulous Annie's Eats. Find the pin here.
