Cooking on Pinterest

I admit, I like to delve into Pinterest a little. I don't spend 500 hours a week looking and searching and pinning - but I do end up looking at pins near the end and sometimes, I pin items I really like looking at or may enjoy.

Honestly, up until this last week, I hadn't really entertained the idea of actually going back and making things.

I don't know what did it, but for some reason, I was making chicken noodle soup and it was going to take a little longer... and I thought "oh, why not?" and went straight to my food board.

The above image is a ham and cheese sandwich made on hawaiian rolls with a dijon sauce. It was truly delicious! Everyone in the family really enjoyed these.

So, with that being a big hit - I took it up one more notch. On Tuesday night I made a crushed red potato and a bacon wrapped chicken dish. My youngest daughter made a fruit salad and we had an absolutely deliciously healthy dinner.

These two were a big hit at the table too although I have to say my daughter loved the chicken and thought the potatoes were ok while my son thought the potatoes were awesome and the chicken was ok. Either way - they both ate and I really enjoyed the meal too.

So - I have to say that if you do head to Pinterest and see things you would like to try, give it a whirl!

Is there any particular recipe you got from Pinterest you really enjoyed and wouldn't mind sharing? Post it in the comments! I'd love to add some more recipes to the mix.

I love pinterest and have gotten several good recipes from there. Add me as a friend-Florence Frazier- and browse through my recipes. I also have a board dedicated to knitting and crochet. I've used several of the breakfast recipes and my family has loved all of them.
