I've been PINNING

Well, I don't know about you, but I've been pinning lots of goodies lately.   Food, crafts, seasonal stuff, home decor and design, photography tips and on and on.  I have actually been making a few of the food items I've pinned and here are some of my results:

First up ~  Creamed Eggs over Toast.

(but, I'm going to delete it from my boards, so here is the actual website)

This sounded interesting, so I thought we'd give it a try.  


Boiled the eggs

Made the "gravy"

Topped the toast.

Ate, Assessed and Added Pepper.

In the end, we decided this would NOT be a remaker.  
Not a lot of flavor ~ but, maybe if you add sausage.......

Next stop ~ Chicken and Black Bean Green Enchilada Rice Bake


Gathered my ingredients

Mixed it up

And layered it in the pans
(I split it into two 8x8 pans so I could put one in the freezer for another day ~ we had already tried this recipe once and knew we liked it!)

Yep, this one is a keeper.  

And Hubby likes to take the leftovers, warm them up and wrap it up in a tortilla. Perfect for a quick lunch!

Last but not Least,  something sweet ~ Peppermint Christmas Tree Meringue Cookies

I made these to take to a cookie exchange at the Parent's group I am co-leader of.
They were quite easy to make, which I definitely like.
They have a minty flavor, but not overwhelming.  Perfect in my opinion.

Since I was bringing them to a meeting, along with 28 gifts (we sponsored a 2 families for Christmas), wrapping paper and a bunch of other stuff, the last thing I wanted to worry about was the cute little chocolate piped stars falling off or breaking apart.  So, although cute, I decided to leave them off ~ this time at least.

I will definitely be making these again!

What, have you been pinning lately?
Have you tried anything?
