Something for the Weekend: Tested Pinterest Recipes

| Recipes: Yay or Nay |
I use Pinterest to find and store recipes I would like to try or have tried and want to remember. Over time I delete the ones I don’t like, so I have a pretty useful list of recipes to go from. Here are some that I’ve tried most recently and my take on them. If you want to find recipes you can count on, join me on Pinterest.

– Breakfast –
Instant Oatmeal Packets | yay
I don’t use sugar, but I put uncooked oats with dates and coconut flakes together. The possibilities are endless.

Almond Milk in the Nutribullet | yay
Super simple and easy to make. No artificial additives either!

Paleo Banana Muffins | meh
I wasn’t sold on this the first go around, but I’m going to try them again with fresher bananas. Others really like them.

– Sides –
Prep your Pantry on Sunday Nights | yay
I do this all week long, but every time we go to the market I prep everything right away. Then, it’s grab and go!

Watermelon Feta Salad with Mint | yay
Our friends made this last weekend and it was ah-mazing.

Sweet Potato Chips | yay
I can never get these right, but they taste awesome!

Broccoli and Cheese Stuffed Sweet Potatoes | yay
Amazing way to eat sweet potatoes, even Chris liked!

Hard-boiled Eggs in the Oven | meh
I read somewhere the best method was the cold-water. These were a little burnt on the bottom.

Almond Joy Butter | meh
My almonds were over-cooked, so I’m keeping this to try again.

– Dinner-
Chick-fil-a Chicken and Sauce | yay
Chris can’t stop talking about these, we love ’em!

Oven Roasted Salmon w/Parmesan Mayo Crust | yay

Grilled Avocados | yay
Best way to eat an avocado, never would have thought to put on sour cream/salsa!

Buffalo Chicken Tacos | yay
Easy simple idea.

Alabama Chicken with white sauce | yay
See above, super tasty!

– Desserts –
Almond Joy Nutribullet | yay
This tasted like a sinful dessert, but was full of health.

Chocolate Chunk Cookie Dough Frozen Yogurt | nay
This wasn’t for me. I’m not sure I liked the sour taste of the greek yogurt after having real frozen yogurt.

I’d just love to make everything on this page and live off of it. Can I, please?

| DIY | 
Non-stick Cooking Spray | yay
This was simple and our go-to now. I just wish coconut oil was liquid year-round!

Have you ever made your own play-dough?

I want to look like a runner. Me, too Dorothy. It’s like I wrote this post.

I’m totally taking this Running Pop Quiz. I love Janae’s blog! She’s always so upbeat and inspiring. And, wow, does she eat a lot of good tasting food and look great for it.

I hope you enjoy your weekend! Have there been any recipes you’ve tried and loved from Pinterest?
