Pinterest Recipe Reviews

One of my April goals is to get out of my recipe rut and try some new things.  I've been testing some recipes I've pinned on Pinterest, so I thought I'd share my reviews with you!

This recipe was really easy to put together, and it tasted awesome!  I loved the mix of spices. I tend to stick to typical savory spices, so it was fun to mix it up with the cinnamon.  I didn't have currants, so I used dried cherries instead.  This was a great dish that I'll definitely make again!

This recipe is AWESOME.  It has that great, comforting, spicy taste of an Italian dish without the heavy carbs.  I used 1/3 pound of grass fed ground beef in mine, because it's what I had on hand.  Also, the recipe calls for 3 TBSP of Italian seasoning but I think that's wrong.  I'd add it a teaspoon at a time and see what you think.  The best part of this recipe is that 1/4 of a 9x13 pan is 295 calories!  Also, it makes great leftovers.  Another winner!

These were so easy and so delicious!!  I was pretty skeptical that just bananas and oats would actually work, but they did!!! I also added a tablespoon of powdered peanut butter and 1/4 cup of mini chocolate chips.  These definitely satisfy a sweet craving!

 The dressing that goes with this salad is AWESOME!! I made this mason jar style and used toasted walnuts instead of pecans.  The flavor combination was just delicious.

I made a big batch of these during the weekend and froze them in pairs. I didn't add as much sweetener as it called for, and I'm glad. They'll make a great savory pancake too that I could use for dinner in place of a bread!  They're hearty and packed with whole grains and protein. I'm not sure I'll make these again, but they're definitely more nutrient dense than plain old pancakes!
