Beer, Pasta, Chicken, Salad and Chocolate....

By now, I'm sure most of you pin stuff on Pinterest.

But how many of you actually make, create,  or purchase the stuff you do pin?  I'm absolutely guilty of pinning things and doing nothing about them.  However, I've been going through my boards to gain mostly dinner inspiration.  Here's what I've made recently:

Raspberry Beer Cooler 
I made this for a get together we had at our home last Friday night.  While most of it got drank, I don't think I will remake it.  Kind of tasted like a tart, sweet beer.  Does that make any sense?  This one, I deleted from my beverage board.

Penne with Roasted Asparagus and Balsamic Butter
Not so sure I would agree that is "The best pasta you will ever eat", but it was ok.  I'm not deleting it from my cooking board, but I won't be making it in the near future either.  

Southwestern Chopped Chicken Salad
I made this for a family potluck.  I would/will definitely make it again.  It makes for a great side dish, or as a main course.  Put in (or leave out) whatever veggies you please.  The dressing is yummy,  just the right amount of kick to please many different palates.

and last but not least, 

German Chocolate Cake Bars
I also took these to our family potluck.  For me they were only ok.  They didn't have the ooey gooeyness I was expecting.  I'm deleting them from my sweet treats board, not because I hated them, just because there are better bars out there (in my opinion).

What have you been pinning?
