Hi you guys! I don’t know about all of you, but I have no clue what I would do without Pinterest when it comes to finding new recipes. I think if Pinterest vanished one day, I’d just starve. Like how did our parents get new ideas every night, 365 days a year? What even is a cook book? Okay maybe I’m being a little dramatic, but you all get the point! When it comes to figuring out what to make for dinner, I can always trust Pinterest to help me find a new and delicious recipe!
Cooking is something I genuinely love to do. There is something so fun about picking out a recipe I’ve never tried before and testing it out to see if I end up having a whole new favorite meal! I am constantly on the search for new, unique recipes that will be a crowd favorite for everyone I’m cooking for. Let’s just say I have made my fair share of meals off of Pinterest recipes I’ve pinned! So, I thought I would share with you all my favorite recipes so far that I have come across (and made) to help you all plan your upcoming meals!
These recipes are not my own, but I will share tips with each one about how I adjusted them to my liking! All of these recipes plus many more can be found on my Pinterest. I hope you all enjoy them as much as Chris and I did! XO, Heather
One Pot Italian Chicken Orzo
This is AH-MAZING! I made this meal a couple days ago and it’s at the top of my favorites, if not my favorite. It is surprisingly very light and is the perfect pasta dish for the warmer weather! Tip: Double the Orzo (2 cups total)
One Pot Mexican Skillet Pasta
I made this meal yesterday and it was another winner. Surprisingly this turned out a lot more like a fun take on chili than a pasta dish! I modified this recipe a ton because it didn’t have any seasonings and I am really big on adding seasonings. So, I seasoned the ground turkey with Garlic and Onion Powder first. Then once I added in the salsa and everything in that step I seasoned it with: Cumin, Paprika, LOTS of Chili Powder, Oregano, and more Garlic Powder! Tip: Always start with a little seasoning and add more until you’re satisfied with the taste! Also, don’t be afraid to add extra black beans and corn.
Southwest Turkey, Vegetable and Rice Skillet
I followed the directions for this recipe to a T (minus the chiles) and loved it! It is another meal that is more on the healthy, lighter side and perfect for Spring! Tip: If you’re a meat lover, double the ground turkey! I will be doing this next time.
Roasted Lemon Butter Garlic Shrimp and Asparagus
HOLY MOLY this recipe was the bomb.com. Yeah, it was that good. Tip: I used a bag of about 30 medium sized frozen shrimp and next time I will be doubling this because it was that good and we were left wanting more. Also, serve with a side of angel hair pasta!
Balsamic-Glazed Steak Rolls
Last but not least, these vegetable filled steak rolls are to die for. The process of rolling all the vegetables is a little difficult, but the taste more than makes up for it. The Balsamic Glaze is also incredible and would be great to drizzle over a normal steak as well! Tip: Use a toothpick to hold the roll together!
When it comes to cooking and trying out new recipes, don’t be afraid to experiment and get a little creative! I always modify recipes a little bit to suite my tasting! XO Heather
