As we are coming to the end of my Pinterest experiment I found I still had a lot of random photos of recipes I have tried, but that do not necessarily lump together well as I have done in other Pinterest posts. So, in no particular order, here is some more Pinterest recipe love:
Considering how labour intensive lasagna making can be, this was quite easy. I used cottage cheese instead of the Ricotta, and regular cheeses instead of the skim versions, but other than that made the recipe as written. It cooked quickly enough to be a week-might meal, and will definitely grace our dinner table again!
The taco seasoning we used to buy at the grocery store was full of ingredients I could not pronounce (always a sign that something isn’t quite “real” food.) So when it comes to seasoning meat or tofu for our favourite Mexican meals, I always make my own seasoning. But having lost the recipe I was using (I am sure I put it somewhere “safe”) I quickly turned to Pinterest for a new one. I liked this mix and will use it again!
Sourdough Burger Buns
I have been wanting to make my own burger buns for a while. And I am always looking for uses for my sourdough starter. In comes this recipe. I actually have made this one twice. The first time the buns were absolutely perfect. The second time they were a little crumbly. But both times they tasted good – even Hubby ate them!
Raspberry Oatmeal Smoothie
I have become an oatmeal smoothie convert. And the raspberry flavour is wonderful in this version. I made mine with almond milk in place of the coconut water. And I’ve been making variations on this recipe ever since….
Pineapple Coconut Popsicles
This was a bit of a vague recipe (how large a can of coconut or pineapple chunks?) but I just kind of threw things together and poured them in popsicle molds (and the leftover mix I put into a smoothie – yum!). Both Hubby and I have been enjoying them on the hot sunny days we have been having.
Grain Free Brownies
Although I do not eat chocolate, Hubby does and loves it. So a while back I started testing out some healthier versions for him. This was the winner. The base is black beans, but with all of the chocolaty goodness in there, you would never know. They are definitely better the second day (otherwise Hubby says they taste a bit “eggy”) and Hubby prefers them cold from the fridge.
That’s it! I am going to reorganize my pin boards so that the recipes I have tried have their own boards, which will hopefully make them easier to find. And then I will know what I still have yet to try…..
For the next three weeks, in the interest of improving my health, I am going to be eating meat-free, dairy-free and wheat-free. Anyone know of some great vegan and wheat-less recipes I should try?
