Pinterest Happy~


So.... one thing that I HAVE been doing despite all of the sickness going around is COOKING!  I VOWED at the first of the year to stop PINNING recipes and NOT making any of them! So at the first of the year I started my quest for making as many pinterest recipes as I possibly can! I have a lot more in the works but these are the ones that I have tried so far! I love to cook IF I can find the time!~Here are some of the recipes I have tried and what I thought...My reviews based on a 4 star rating :)
HOT SPINACH SALSA QUESO DIP
3 1/2 STARS. This was SO good and easy! Perfect for gatherings, potlucks and parties. Definitely a crowd pleaser!

TO DIE FOR CREAM CHEESE CHICKEN ENCHILADAS
2 1/2 STARS I don't know what happened here.... this recipe had all of the ingredients to be amazing! Maybe it was my cooking, maybe it was too high of expectations, I don't know but while it was good it was a little bland and kind of dissapointing. I think if I made them again I would adjust the recipe quite a bit to spice things up! creamcheeseenchiladas11

BAKED SPASANGA
3 1/2 STARS This is seriously one of my fav dishes at Cheddars so I was super excited to find this recipe. Of course things always taste better to me when I am at a restaurant but this recipe was definitely a close second. It was great comfort food and even better as leftovers. There was a lot of ingredients so making the dish could get a little pricey but it made a TON so you could freeze even half of it and save it for another meal! I will definitely make this again!

SOPAPILLA CHEESECAKE

JALAPENO PIMENTO CHEESE
4 + STARS OMG!! I am SO glad I found this recipe it has now become one of my very favorites. Even my husband who swore he doesn't like pimento cheese just happened to eat half of this recipe the first time I made it. I think I have now made at least 3 batches. Get some wavy Lays and this is heaven on a chip! It's easy, it's cheap and it is SO good!!!

MASTERS AUGUSTA EGG SALAD
3 STARS Egg Salad isn't something I crave on a daily basis but I happened to be craving it a couple of weeks ago and ran into this recipe. It was definitely a great and easy recipe. There was nothing lacking in this recipe it is just not something I would eat all of the time. If I ever have another craving for egg salad I will definitely use this recipe again!

I am excited to try more pinterest recipes! Now if only I could try this with EVERYTHING I pin on pinterest my life would be a lovely! My house would be clean and organized, I would have the best make up, hair and clothes, I would be an awesome crafter and DIY person and I would make the most gourmet meals :) haha

***SICKNESS UPDATE*** Chandler has a double ear infection so now 3 out of 5 of us are on antibiotics I am truly hoping the 5 week streak of sickness is ending, I don't think I can take much more!
