It’s no secret that I love/hate Pinterest. Right? One of my favorite things to do is find new recipes on there. It seems like lately, I’ve had a string of bad luck with the recipes where my family hasn’t really been a huge fan of whatever new thing I’ve tried. So, I thought I’d share 10 recipes that I found, cooked, and most of us loved (you can’t please everyone) and that I have cooked at least twice.
So, if it made this list, then you know that I’ve eaten it a couple of times, it’s yummy, and it’s something that I will continue to rotate in my family’s nightly meals. I’ll leave a little blurb above the recipe I’m referring to and the source below it. Enjoy!
This one was a little time intensive and had a lot of steps. I was frustrated with that, but when we tasted it? It was SOO good, I think I will definitely keep it around.
Pineapple Cashew Fried Rice from How Sweet It Is
I’ve made this one too many times to count. It turns out perfect every time and is the perfect side dish!
Cheesy Broccoli Quinoa from Closet Cooking
These sugar cookies are to DIE for. I love the frosting more than the cookies, but both are fabulous. If you already have a sugar cookie you love, try using her recipe for the frosting at least.
Swig Sugar Cookies @ Vintage Revivals
This one I just made recently. It was good, but the biggest reason why it made the list is because it was quick and easy!
Simple Sesame Noodles from Nest Full of New
I’ve never done a one pot pasta, and we all LOVED it. Also super easy and quick to prepare.
One Pot Wonder Tomato Basil Pasta from Apron Strings Blog
I didn’t care that my kids weren’t big fans of this one….I loved it enough for all of us!
Spicy Roasted Vegetable Mac and Cheese from The Comfort of Cooking
I’ve made this soup too many times to count. I used to work at Olive Garden, and to me, it tastes pretty dang close to theirs. We make it all. the. time. Kids love it too!
Crockpot Zuppa Toscana (Olive Garden Copycat Recipe) from Key Ingredient
I love avocados, and this one is SO good.
Smashed Chickpea & Avocado Salad from Two Peas and Their Pod
If you like Indian, you have to try this soup. SO yummy, and it got lost in my recipes, so this one is going on the list to make this week again probably.
Red Lentil Coconut Soup from Scaling Back
And, if you bake bread (I don’t, but my husband does) and are looking for a good, simple, whole-wheat one, this one is it!! My husband has been making it so often that I’ve stopped buying bread. And, it’s a whole-wheat that my kids actually prefer over white bread. Simple ingredients and only 6 of them.
Skip’s Basic Bread from Word of Wisdom Living
Let me know if you try one and love it! I’m sure you can’t go wrong with any of these.
