I'm usually not one to brag but I've been kicking some serious ass on my Pinterest challenge. My sister has too. We both enjoy trying a new recipe here and there and Pinterest makes it easy to do just that. I think it has to do with seeing all your recipes (pins) on one board - no going through cookbooks, looking through blogs or bringing up bookmarks on the computer.
Anyhoo, here are the things that I've now added to my Completed Pins board.
Frozen Chocolate Peanut butter Bananas
Source: (never home) maker
Notes: These are very tasty. It is mandatory that you freeze them over night. This completely changes the consistency of the bananas. The downside to these is that they are a pain in the butt to coat. It is mess and they turn out pretty ugly. I made some just with chocolate for my girls and added sprinkles to the top. I got so fed up with trying to dunk the banana pieces I just spread some chocolate on top. After being frozen the chocolate just slip off in a disk. Adding peanut butter does make the chocolate thinner and easier to get on the banana pieces. Still not sure if the frustration is worth the treat.
1 Ingredient Ice cream
Source: Use Real Butter
Notes: I made 2 and 3 ingredient ice cream. It is amazing to me just how sweet bananas are. This is tasty but not at all like ice cream. I used fresh bananas maybe I should have processed frozen ones to get the desired effect.
Weight Watchers Honey Mustard Chicken
Source: Weight Watchers
Notes: I used Panko instead of corn flakes. This was tasty and easy and did add a lot of flavor to plain old chicken.
Shredded Beef Tacos
Source: Give me some Oven
Notes: Made this for my Book Club. The beef was tender and delish but didn't have as much flavor as I'd hoped. I'd use all the abodo sauce and more chilis next time. I will make this again.
Large Outdoor Blackboard

Notes: Involved the kids (neighbors too) in the whole process - sanding, priming, and painting. Such as easy project. We'll see if the kids use it more than once.
Oatmeal Raisin cookies
Source: Smitten Kitchen
Notes: Tasty but not thick as described. Could have to do with the humidity in Hawaii (made them as my sister's)
What are you making these days?
