Tried and Tested: Pinterest Recipes

Here are my top 5 tried and tested Pinterest recipes that me and my family have loved. I will attach the link to every recipe and some side notes to edit the dish if you so please.

 

1) Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Side note: For the rub on the meat I used Lawrys season salt with rosemary and it tastes amazing. For smaller roasts cut the fast and slow cooking times in half and I would use red potatoes in stead of the russet or baking potatoes because they cook up better and more evenly.

2) Churro Cupcakes

Side note: For this recipe I opted out of making home made frosting and just used regular icing with added cinnamon. After decorating I used coarse sugar and cinnamon for decoration. These were absolutely delicious.

3) Creamy Four Cheese Garlic pasta

Side note: You can use whatever cheeses you prefer. I have tried this with multiple different types of melting cheeses and it works really well. It is on the heavier side so if you watching your wait this is not for you. Personally I add some cumin, a bay leaf, and some pepper flakes for some extra flavor that I don’t think the original recipe gives.

4) Cilantro Lime Shrimp

Side note: Make this all the time. Its a family favorite and you can’t go wrong with it. Just make sure not to overcook the shrimp and make sure they are deveined before cooking.

Side note: Make sure you don’t over reduce the glaze because it can become bitter. Also, adding some sort of a toasted nut topping would be a delicious addition. If you were to add this topping I would suggest walnuts due to their mild flavor, so that they don’t overpower the overall taste of the salmon. Fresh Alaskan Salmon preferred.
