On my Pinterest I have a board called "Tried and True". It includes the recipes I've tried on Pinterest that are definitely worth making again. Once in a while, I'll make a recipe from Pinterest that didn't turn out well. The image looked great, but the recipe wasn't. I'm really particular when it comes to saving recipes to my tried and true Pinterest board. It literally had to be mouth watering for me to save it. Since I've tried SO many recipes on Pinterest, I'm sharing below some of my tried and true favorites for you to enjoy as well!
Bananas are a staple on our weekly grocery list. Lance and I can't get enough of them, but some weeks we have a few that go brown, and we'll toss them in the freezer to save for when we make our favorite Chocolate Chip Banana Bread. We've made this banana bread recipe a lot! It's SO good with the chocolate chips, and I'm a huge fan of walnuts - so I always add them in when I have them, but we've made the banana bread without walnuts as well. The best part is the bites of thinly sliced bananas you get throughout the bread. There's something about banana and chocolate together that I absolutely love.
I never really knew what quiche was until a few years ago but now it's one of my favorite breakfasts. If your unsure what quiche is, like I was, it's a savory custard made with eggs, milk, veggies, meat and/or fresh herbs. Since I eat breakfast everyday at work, I'm always looking for something I [...]
These last few months have been crazy for Lance and I. Between Lance studying for his EMT exam and me studying for a work exam, our wedding planning and full-time jobs we haven't had a lot of time for anything else. We've been making a lot of quick and easy meals and snacks at home. [...]
Valentine's Day is right around the corner, and I usually make a special dessert. Whether it's cheesecake, chocolate covered strawberry's or sugar cookies, I love having a treat to look forward to while celebrating. This year, I thought dressing up sugar cookies would be really fun to make, especially since I saw these cute Valentine's [...]
Roast chicken is a classic meal. There's something so satisfying about your house smelling unbelievably good and the dinner tasting even better. I know now that roast chicken is easy enough to make for a weeknight meal, but truthfully I was always a little intimidated by it. Not only for the fact that I had [...]
I first became introduced to this recipe by my twin sister, Emily. She was attending a "Soup and Chili Gathering" and each person was to bring a soup or chili dish. Emily texted me what she was going to make, and instantly I was checking out the recipe. At that point I never had chicken [...]
Lance and I couldn't stop raving about these easy, homemade everything bagels this weekend. It took everything in us not to eat them all right away. We ate them warm, out of the oven, with cream cheese smeared all over. It only took me 30 minutes from start to finish to make these bagels. Plus [...]
This Blueberry Pineapple Mint Smoothie is the best! I like my smoothies to be thick, creamy and flavorful. I started getting on a smoothie kick since I joined Beach Body, and now I have one every morning to start my day. There are so many variations of smoothies, but I just keep coming back to [...]
I love waffles that are a little crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. I received a waffle maker as a gift a couple of years ago and have finally found my go-to recipe. Waffles are really easy to whip up, and I love accompanying my fluffy and delicious waffles with fresh fruit [...]
