DINNER. sponsored by PINTEREST

I've been trying really hard not to put my hard earned time on Pinterest to waste by actually making the recipes I have pinned for breakfast, dinner and dessert!  Here's a few that I have made and have really enjoyed.

I made this delightfully fresh orange smoothie this morning.  I did make a few changes to the recipe by adding some freshly squeezed lemon juice.  All in all, I really enjoyed it and the ingredients are all something I have on hand.


This Cilanto Lime Chicken recipe made me wonder why in the heck I don't use my slow cooker more often.  I absolutely ADORED this meal, but I did have to make a few changes because I decided to make it somewhat at the last minute.  Namely, I cooked it on high for three hours instead of on low for six.  I also served it over rice and added a dollop of sour cream to each serving.  Delish.


I've actually made these Creamy Chicken Enchiladas twice now, and my family and I love them.  They are so flavorful with a little bit of a kick.  Definitely try them!


Pinterest has taught me that I love mexican dishes, but I also can't get enough of pasta.  So, when I saw this Mexican Stuffed Shells recipe it was like two of my favorite worlds collided and I just had to try it. This recipe was so simple to make and so, so good!


And last, I hosted a birthday part for my brother and decided to make this Peach Crisp instead of a cake.  Of course, I got the ok from him and he was all on board.   This delicious dessert lasted, maybe, 15 minutes before it was ALL gone.  It is such a simple recipe and a real crowd pleaser!

  2. Pretty much any kind of fruit crisp is good by me! And the mexican shells are a good idea. I'll have to craft a vegetarian version!

    Love Pinterest.

  3. I love Pinterest for all sorts of ideas! I found I enjoy Mexican dishes when I started following skinnytaste.com although I typical tweak the recipes making them a little fattier than she intended!

  5. Thanks a lot, now you're making me hungry now! Grrrr, as a compensation I shall steal those links and cook them for myself! >:)

    Also, is this what Pinterest is also about? I always thought it was just all about being another social networking site and photography was a big part of the site.
