From Pin to Plate

I have an out of control food board on Pinterest and now that we have finally tried a few recipes I thought I would pass along some of my expert food opinions.

This past weekend I made these Baked Oatmeal Bars that I found on Kath Eats Real Food.

So, mine did not look this good ha.  I used chocolate chips, a bit of brown sugar, flaxseed, chopped and chopped almonds for my concoction.  It is definitely very moist and muffin like, as the comments mention.  They were pretty darn good.  I even ate it in my mix of yogurt and fruit the other morning.

Sunday, I made Oven Baked Frito Pie for our football watching company.  This recipe came from Sweet Treats and More.

Well, this was just okay.  I think I was expecting more creaminess or something.  I like stuff with a kick and while I did use diced tomatoes with green chilies, it just wasn't AMAAAZING to me.  It did reheat nicely for lunch the other day.

At the beginning of football season, so waaaaay back in September I made a Baked Panzanella Caprese Salad from Iowa Girl Eats.

OMG.  This was amazinggggg.  I cannot believe I haven't made it again since.  The mozzarella was soo good and the balsamic vinegar made it sooo sooo good.  I would eat it again for lunch any day.

Also in September, my husband and I tried Pull Apart Cheesy Herb Bread.  We were a big fail at it.  I don't know if it was us or the recipe, but it wasn't good and did not look good.  Big fail.

One random Saturday night we also tried Easy Mozzarella Sticks.  Yum  We used random old cheese sticks (god knows how long they'd been in the fridge!) and it was fantastic.  We even ended up doing fried pickles.

On Friday night, we made Taco Pizza. It looked delicious, sounded delicious, and somehow, it didn't look as pretty or taste as scrumptious as I was expecting.  I think I would add jalapenos, more cheese, more tomatoes and maybe a little less beans.

I'm pretty sure that is all I've tried.  There are a few others that I can't wait to try. 

Have you found any good recipes from Pinterest? Any fails?
