Blog #112: Pinterest has so many must try recipes. So much inspiration to try foods you may have never thought of. I for one used to cut out recipes from magazines and keep a recipe binder book. I still have that binder but only pull it once in a while. Mostly for holiday recipes. Recipes I don’t make often. My digital cookbook is Pinterest. I save tons of recipes that I would like to make. There are some recipes I make often and some occasionally. These are my top 10 pinterest recipes (In no particular order):
#1 Black Bean Tacos
These black bean tacos are super delicious and filling. It has all the perfect toppings with a creamy avocado, cilantro lime sauce. Vegetarian, cheap and healthy. I make these a few times a year. Best of all NO cooking required (just heating up)!
#2 Rose Lemon Caper Salmon
This is probably my favorite recipe on this list, by Ayesha Curry. I make salmon at least once a week and this is my one of go to recipes for salmon. Memorized at this point! SOO yummy!
#3 Salsa Fresca Chicken
This recipe definitely feels “fresca.” Easy right in the oven meal. Serve with a side of rice and lots of lime.
#4 Turkey Enchiladas
#5 Cornbread with Jalapeno
This is another favorite to make around the holidays. The best part is that you use a cornbread mix to make this recipe. Another Ayesha Curry recipe.
#6 Chicken Caesar Sandwiches
I make this one a few times a year. Easy crockpot meal. Use a nice crusty bread to make it more than a regular old sandwich.
#7 Tuna Melts
This is my favorite way of having a tuna melt. Martha Stewart really got me on this one. Capers, tomatoes, cheese and crusty bread. What more can you ask for? Make it a fancy dinner without the extra work.
#8 Gnocchi with Pomodoro Sauce
A nice cozy meal for those rainy days. I’ve only made this once and will definitely be a go to recipe this winter. Easy and so satisfying.
#9 Thai Curry Noodle Soup
This is another dish that looks as if it takes a few hours to make yet is the complete opposite. Feeds a crowds and full of flavor. You can easily substitute chicken for shrimp. Whatever floats your boat 😋
#10 Chocolate Poke Cake with Frosting
Lastly, I had to put in a chocolate recipe. Chocolate is a must for me! I made this for my son’s birthday last year and boy was this a rich cake and yummy frosting! All I can say is YUM!
I love tasting new foods and creating new dishes but its always fun to accidently create a new recipe when you use what you have on hand. Let me know your favorite recipes that I should try next!
