My Favorite Pinterest Recipes

     Has Pinterest changed your life yet? For me its changed how I find recipes. There are so many mouth watering photos out there of yummy food. Makes me hungry just thinking about it!

     Can you trust what you see? I have tried a quite a few recipes from Pinterest and found some that didn't turn out as good as they looked, but some exceeded my expectations. And some, ended up in our family's recipe box.

      Its no secret that I am a picky eater. I like to think I just have a highly selective palate. ;) So today I thought I'd share with you my favorite recipes that I've found so far. In all fairness I didn't include any of my own. {You can click on the recipe tab in the side margin to see my faves that I've shared here before}.

     If you want to pin something be kind to the owner of the recipe and click on over to their site and pin from there. You  can also find the recipes for each by clicking on their link.

     In no particular order here are my faves:

Li'l Luna's White Texas Sheetcake   I made this one for the teachers at my kid's school {for parent teacher conferences}. When it was canceled due to a snowstorm we had to eat it. Oh my was it yummy. It is flavored with almond extract and I love all things almond. Even my hubby {who doesn't like almond} loved this cake!

Aunt Peg's Recipe Box's Coconut No Bake Cookies   If you love a good no-bake cookie and you like coconut, then this cookie is for you. Besides coconut these cookies also have coconut pudding mix and oatmeal in them.

Cody Kitchen Confection's Almond Sugar Cookies  I promise, all my favorites aren't sweets! But, these almond cookies are really good! I didn't have the cake flour so I used regular and they turned out great.

Lemon Crackle Cookies from Beyond Kimchee In case you thought I was on an almond theme I thought I'd share these. These are a nice refreshing change. The lemon is zingy but not too tart and these are nice and chewy.

Stick a Fork in it's Crockpot BBQ Chicken  We are big BBQ chicken fans at this house so the winter feels kind of long without our grill. My hopes were low when I came across this recipe but we were pleasantly surprised. These are really good! I will say that ours don't come out of the crockpot looking grilled like in the picture, so I'm highly suspect that this is an original pic of this recipe. Regardless, these are so good that my kids ask for them and they've made it into the dinner rotation.

Mini Pizza idea from Cooking on Clover Lane  This is less of a recipe and more of just a brilliant idea. Frozen roll dough make great mini pizza's. They taste really good and they are fun to assemble with the kids. This was also a hit meal for the Friday night babysitter to make with the kids last weekend.

Martha Stewart's Salisbury Steak What can't she do? These are amazing! My husband talked about them all week after I made them for the first time. I love a hamburger recipe that is really good, and the gravy, oh the yummy!!!

Mommy's Kitchen No-Peek Beef Tips  Now this is the recipe that has changed my life. Kind of. Instead of making a big beef roast and laboring over the gravy, this recipe does it all at once. In fact, its what we're having tonight. Beef tips are cheaper than buying a beef roast too, {I even buy two packages and its still cheaper than one roast}.  Throw in some potatoes and carrots and dinner's done!....well after 3 hours. This is also a great Sunday after church kind of meal. {If you aren't paranoid about your oven being on while you are away!}

I may make an annual event out of this. There are so many more recipes that I have pinned to try. Feel free to follow my recipe boards.

Oh, one last thing, Homey Home Design also has a facebook page. I'd love to have you follow along there as well!

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I've yet to check out Pinterest. I know that makes me out of touch, but oh well. I hear great things about it, but I fear I would waste a whole lot of time there.

    The lemon cookies you linked to look identical to the soft lemon coolers I make, except I only use the cake mix, the carton of cool whip, one egg, and the powdered sugar for rolling the dough in. So easy and so delicious.
