Ahhh... Pinterest it is ideas you give and time you take, but I keep coming back. And actually, my boards are not sitting there gathering virtual dust (well not all of them anyway). I have made and tried a few of the things I've pinned and here are my thoughts:
Quick and Easy Blender Salsa
(found on my "appetizer board")
This salsa was super easy to make, even Action made a batch.
It is easy to adjust the "heat" just by the amount of jalapeno you use. I will (and have) definitely make this again.
Breakfast Coffee Protein Shake
(found on my "Beverages Board")
Typically I try to work out most mornings around 5am. When I get home, I am a bit hungry as well as ready for some coffee. I do love my coffee :) When I saw this on Pinterest, I admit, I got a little bit excited and couldn't wait to try it. I did end up enjoying the shake, but here's what I changed from the recipe after making it the first time. I use chocolate protein powder, 'cause that's what we have right now at my house. And along with the ice and banana, I doubled the amount of coffee (I told you, I love coffee), halved the amount of milk and didn't add any additional sugar. It was definitely sweet enough for me! Occasionally I add additional banana and/or chia seeds. So, yep, this one is a keeper!
Cheesy Chicken Pot Pie
(found on my "main dish recipes I've tried and like" board)
And this one ~ another keeper! The kids liked it, hubby liked it, I liked it. I don't think it's the healthiest pot pie ever, none the less, I will make it again. For myself though, I thought it was a bit too cheesy so I would add less cheese. And a tip for you, the crescent roll top ~ purchase one of those crescent roll sheets instead of the individual rolls. So much easier :)
And no, I don't just eat at my house.... I read as well!
Here' is a book review for you:
