5 Pinterest Recipes I've Tried and Loved

Wednesday, August 30, 2017

It can be hit or miss with Pinterest recipes sometimes but I am always looking for new ones to try. Usually the first time I make something new I try to do it exactly how I found it in the original recipe. Then, if I plan on making it again I will tweak it a little bit for our taste preferences. So here is my list of 5 of my favorite (husband approved) Pinterest recipes for you to try.

Crockpot Zuppa Toscana from Homemade Hooplah - If you like the Zuppa Toscana from Olive Garden then you have to try this copycat recipe from Homemade Hooplah. I think it tastes even better than the one in the restaurant. I made a crockpot full of this and then froze it in individual baggies. It was so easy to make and heated up so well every time. I can't wait to make more!

One Pot Cajun Alfredo Pasta from No. 2 Pencil - She used chicken and sausage in her recipe but when we made this we had salmon on hand and decided to substitute for that instead. The sauce was delicious. It came together so easily and tasted great. The cajun seasoning was such a good addition to the alfredo that I would have never thought of.

Baked Spinach, Artichoke, and Crab Dip from Pinch Me I'm Eating - This artichoke dip was so good. I loved that she added crab to it. It had so much substance which I loved. If we make this again I will add some kind of acid (probably lemon) to it to give it a little kick. Also, there are a lot of steps in making this, but it can be cut down by a few if you know a little bit about cooking so read through the recipe first.

Hawaiian Shrimp Truck Special from Half Baked Harvest - I have (and will continue) to make this shrimp over and over again. It is so good, so garlicky and the perfect amount spicy. I love love love this and serve it with rice and pineapple and you've got yourself a delicious tropical meal.

Seattle-Style Smoked Salmon Chowder from Little Spice Jar - My favorite meal on this list, and for good reason. This chowder is SO good. With smoked salmon, and capers and cream this chowder is so hearty and comforting and something that I will probably make all fall/winter long. And, it heats up so well as leftovers so even better. If you only make one item from this list, make this one.
