Pretty tasty {on Pinterest}

Do you Pin? Are you on Pinterest? I know a lot of us creative, scrappy people are.

It is such a fabulously addictive place for the creative mind, is it not? Last week I vowed that I wasn't going to go grocery shopping without at least one new recipe from my Pinterest "Tasty" folder on the list.

This week I was good, and I made a few. I also have the ingredients for 2 more I will be making later this week.

Chicken Cashew Lettuce Wraps

The lettuce wraps were by far my favorite. I would not change anything at all about this recipe. It is a 5 stars for me!


Crockpot Lasagna

The lasagna was delish. I have made it 2x now, and I keep decreasing the cooking time each time I make it. For me, the four hours on low still makes the noodles too soft. Husband loves it, but I am now about to try only 3 hours, because even 3.5 hours made the noodles too soft. The rest is great and tasty!


French Bread Pizza

This was a fabulous, quick lunch on a Sunday. I can see myself making this late at night after the husband gets off work and is desperate for a quick, filling snack. And definitely on the weekends for the boy.

Do you Pin? Do you have a food/recipe board? Leave your link in my comments section so I can follow you! :)

Oh, and here is something too funny: I pinned sweets and treats way more often than dinners and meals, yet I did not grab one dessert recipe this week. I need to Pin me some more dinners!

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you'll like my new {on Pinterest} feature. I hope to do this every once in awhile to keep the blog fresh with new and different things.

The post was a the perfect time! I am just stumped for ideas for our weekly menu, and those chicken+cashew wraps look so, so yummy. I've repinned your pin!
I am totally with you-- I pin desserts ALL the time, and just last night I was looking through my "Eat" board for supper ideas-- no luck! Unless of course, I can justify eating salted caramel sauce over salted caramel ice cream with a side of raspberry lemonade bars... That represents a few food groups, right?! ;-)
So thank you again for the great ideas. It's grocery shopping day!

We use the crock pot every Sunday because of our church meeting schedule being kind of late in the day, and I am so bored with all my recipes. I will definitely have to check out pinterest for recipe inspiration and try this lasagna. Thanks!
