My Favorite Recipes I’ve Tried from Pinterest

One of the best things about Pinterest is the wonderful recipes I have found to try. I even started a board for my followers called Recipes I tried and Liked from Pinterest. Sometimes I just get so happy about them I forget to photograph them for you and share them. I am going to share some of my all time faves so far and then you can check out the rest at the link above.

This is what I made for lunch yesterday from  Spaghetti with Sauteed Chicken and Grape Tomatoes You really cannot go wrong with garlic, basil, and tomatoes on anything!
A few weeks ago we had our friends Pete and Cristina with their boys over to watch the Avengers movie and I made this! Yummmmmmm It’s Garlic Pesto Chicken with Tomato Cream Penne from Southern Girl Cooking. The only difference is that I added some pesto to the pasta sauce, I cut my chicken into 1″ pieces and mixed it in, and I used half in half.

This one is an avocado lovers dream and it’s full of healthy fat! The Eggvocado from The Traveling Spoon. So good and healthy.
Brown Sugar and Balsamic Glazed Pork Loin from C&C Marriage Factory is a wonderful crock-pot recipe and so good, hubby said I have to make this again!
My neighbor Julie brought a bunch of poblano peppers to book club from her hubbies garden, I grabbed those puppies right up and made this Chile Relleno Casserole from Dishing with Leslie. It was freakin’ awesome!

So here are some of my recent faves, What are your’s? I would love for you to link them up in the comments so I can try them! Head over to my boards to see more and follow if you would like.
