Scottsdale Moms Blog presents a new series: “Pinterest Tried & True!” Join us this week as our contributors share which great ideas from Pinterest really worked for them. We’ll be talking about food, fashion, home decor, crafts, and boredom busters for kids!
I really like to cook and I love to make new recipes that I haven’t tried before- I actually mean I prefer a good restaurant, but with three children this isn’t as much fun as it used to be.
Finding new recipes every week can be challenging and tedious. I used to rip recipes out of magazines and buy lots of cook books. But enter the invention of Pinterest and I now have an endless supply of fabulous looking recipes to pin and try.
Here is my list of favorite tried and true recipes that I found through Pinterest:
French Breakfast Muffins– yummmm tastes like a donut in a muffin
Baked Pancake Squares– easy way to make pancakes in the oven
The Pioneers Woman’s Cinnamon Toast– I bet you didn’t know you were making cinnamon toast wrong either
“Starbucks” Petite Vanilla Scones– almost exactly like the real thing, but much cheaper
Lime & Coconut Chicken– great way to make chicken
Chicken Parmesan Casserole– easy dinner
Sour Cream Noodle Bake– another easy dinner
Baked Chicken Fajitas– I prefer anything that I can bake instead of standing over the stove especially during homework time
Amazing Biggest Loser Vegetable Salad– so good and really healthy, I like to add some avocado to this salad
Kid Friendly Meals
Crescent Pepperoni Roll-Up– easy kid’s dinner
Ham and Cheese Pretzels– these are not exactly “easy” to make, but so worth the extra time and effort
It was really hard to narrow the list down to just these eleven recipes. But I can tell you that most of them are pretty easy to make and almost all of them are kid friendly.
