Pinterest dinner success

Thank you Pinterest. You are my new go-to source for delicious meals. Pinterest-fare has become the dinner-hour star more often than not here lately. The masses are impressed. Most of the recipes we have been reveling in are not healthy. When Scott compliments a dish, I'll usually answer with, "Yeah, guess how much butter is in it!" or "Mmm-hmm, the secret ingredient is bacon."

Here are some of our new favorites:


Baked Potato Grilled Cheese
A match made in heaven.

Chic-fil-a nuggets
Scott usually doesn't really like chicken.
He liked these.

Chinese Noodles
Lydia could have eaten the whole thing by herself.

Homemade Hamburger Rolls
I used these for the Philly Sloppy Joes and the Bean Burgers.
Next time I'm just going to make them to eat alone.

Crunchwrap Supreme
There's always room for another way to make tacos.

Cheesy Garlic Bread
It gives us bad breath but we don't even care.

Mac and Cheese
If Martha Stewart says it's the best, it must be.
Bonus: we used the same cheese sauce for the Philly Sloppy Joes.

Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joes
Great application for the delicious classic.

Double Crunch Honey Garlic Pork Chops
Just as good as they sound. Maybe even better.

Sweet Potato Veggie Burger with Avocado
These actually are healthy...until you fry them.
I had my doubts about halfway through making them, but needn't have worried.
Don't skip the avocado, YUM.

Twice Baked Potato Casserole
Twice as delicious.

Why haven't all the Cruzes put on at least 10 pounds each?!

These look fantastic! I'm impressed, Lori. It's 10:30 p.m., and I'm ready to head to the kitchen to whip up one of these.

Which one are you serving at the next family fireside? :)

We've been taste testing our fair share of pinterest recipes too. Especially the crockpot ones! I've made the crockpot lasagna, bbq w/ diet coke, bbq sauce & lawry's, honey sesame chicken, cinnamon roll waffles, & a taco soup. Love it! Haven't been disappointed yet.

I have noticed the same thing Lori, that the recipes I pull from pinterest are always amazing and rarely healthy!
