Pinterest Experiments

One of my greatest time sucks is Pinterest. I’m addicted. I pin way more recipes than anything else which is not good for the waistline or the fifteen pounds that I lost this summer. But I can’t help myself–hence the addiction.

Here are a few that I tried and loved (because of copyrights infringement, or the fact I don’t want to be accused of copyright infringement, I won’t be posting pictures here but will post links to the pictures):

Chicken Enchilada Bake. Very yummy! The kids loved it and went back for 2nds. Super easy to make and you can even make the day before.

Baked Cream Cheese Spaghetti Casserole: Again another super easy recipe. This time the kids went back for 3rds! Then the next day they fought over the leftovers.

Slow Cooker Fudge: I liked this recipe because its low in calories and made from natural ingredients. The problem I had was finding the coconut milk (It’s in the refrigerated section of the organic foods). It’s not cheap either and you’re stuck with half a gallon. If you don’t like coconut milk then I would recommend just using regular milk. This cooks in the slow cooker and is very easy to make. The picture fools you though. Mine weren’t nearly as thick as the fudge in the picture. They’re very rich too. Definitely they’ll satisfy your chocolate craving.


Homemade peanut butter cups

I had to share this because it’s way too good not to share. This past weekend my daughter made homemade peanut butter cups for us and I have to say they are probably the yummiest things I’ve ever eaten.

They taste like they should have about 3 bazillion calories but I actually did the calorie count and one has a little less than 300 calories. Which makes this super yummy!

1 tbs Nutella spread in the bottom of a cupcake holder

1 tbs peanut butter on top of the Nutella

1 tbs Nutella again

Freeze until hardened. If its too frozen you can pop it in the microwave for about 15 seconds.

This is an actual picture of her peanut butter cup after my son took a huge bite out of it

Wow! That’s all I can say.
