Another Pinterest Recipe Reveiw

It has been a while since my last Pinterest Recipe Review, so I thought it was about time that I did another one. I'm going to divided the recipes into two blogs this one and then one with just the slow cooker recipes.

The first one up is a lovely summer drink, Homemade Strawberry Lemonade.

I loved this drink it is wonderful on a hot summer day, even on a rainy summer day it would be lovely. It's light and refreshing and I loved the fact that you get to blend the whole lemon. The only down side is that you really have to strain it a lot. Also I added a lot more water then it calls for, but I don't think it takes away anything from the taste. I would defiantly recommend that everyone should make this delightful drink, anytime of the year.

Let's move on to the casserole meals, I make a lot of casseroles so the list is long.

Sour cream Rice Bake.

I have nothing but good things to say about this casserole. I thought it was so yummy and very filling, it definitely falls into the comfort food category. This one also got Mike's approval so you know it  isn't that bad.

I think casseroles and comfort food really go hand and hand. 
This Cheese Potato and Smoked Sausage fully lives up to that statement.

The night I made this Mike walked into the house and loudly proclaimed "Yes!" He went on to say that he could smell the sausage when he was walking to the house and he thought to himself "That better be my dinner!" And it did not disappoint,  maybe because it had two of the things that I love most in it sausages and cheese. This will be made again.

Chicken Cordon Bleu Casseroles

This was a enjoyable twist on the regular old chicken casserole. The best part is it tasted like chicken cordon bleu but was way easier to make. 

Let's move on to salads;

First up the Chicken BLT Taco Salad.

 I made this just the other night and I thought it was a big hit. I didn't add the avocado or the taco chips other then that I followed the recipe pretty closely. The thing that I thought made it different from a plain old salad was the dressing, mixing salsa and french dressing was really good. I did have my doubts, but I loved it. I would have never thought of mixing those two things together but it was amazing. Worth a try for everyone. 

Chipotle Chicken Taco Salad 
Recipe HERE

 This was another wonderful summer salad that I enjoyed very much. The chipotle gives it a nice little kick to it. The only thing with this salad is that it does not keep well. So keep that in mind for how much you make. 

I tired making another vegetarian meal but this time I did not tell Mike that it had no meat, and I think that was a better way then just telling him out right. It was a vegetation quinoa chill.

You will have a lot of leftovers from this recipe which is great because it taste better day after day. 
I ate this for lunch for just about a week and loved it. With the spices that it calls for the chill has a very full flavour. The nice thing about any chill you can always play with the spices to fancy your own taste buds. The only thing I would do different next time is add more quinoa. 


Creamy Bacon Carbon

Bacon & Chicken Alfredo Pasta. My favorite meal!

I love this meal. I have made it a few times now and Mike and I seem to enjoy it more and more each time. The bacon gives everything a most delightful flavour. It has such a heavenly creamy texture, it is just a dream. Like she says in the recipe don't cook the sauce on high heat or you will have scramble eggs, I may or may not be speaking from experience

Beef Cheesy Stuffed Bake Potatoes

This has quickly become a favorite meal for Mike and I. Thanks to the cheese and sour cream the potatoes have a very creamy and fluffy texture. I found a little trick that makes this meal even easier to make, and that is by cooking the bake potatoes in the slow cooker, that way by the time I get home from work they are all ready to go. 

Meatloaf in a Muffin Pan

Make meatloaf in a muffin pan- it cooks in 15 minutes! (Thank you Rachel Ray).  Then top with mashed potatoes

I have to thank Rachael Ray for this great meatloaf recipe.  Sadly I added a few too many veggies which made it a little more mushy then I would have liked but that was my mistake not the recipe. 

Egg Muffins

I made these this morning for breakfast, it was so quick and easy which is always great when it comes to making breakfast. I found these quite delicious and I'm so excited that I have leftover for tomorrow morning

I hope you found that helpful, if you have any wonderful recipes that you found on pinterest or any where else I would love to hear about them. 

Stay tuned for the slow cooker recipes review.
