Pinterest Recipes Made Reality

The topic for Jenna's challenge today is Pinterest.  The idea is to share pins that you have made/cooked/done etc.  I pin all sorts of things but the one thing that I actually follow through with is cooking recipe pins I see.  I find tons of recipes on Pinterest and I have actually made several of them.  I actually keep 2 separate boards on Pinterest - Recipes to Try & Recipes Tried/Keeping.   Below I will share some of the recipes I have pinned and my version of them. 

Crash Hot Potatoes are an easy side.  I found them on Pinterest with the original source being a blog which I now follow.  I also later found they were a Pioneer Woman recipe as well.

My Version: Roast Chicken Legs, Crash Hot Potatoes, Cabbage

Key West Marinade. This is a really flavorful marinade.  We used it on chicken, but I think it would also be great on a pork tenderloin.  I doubled the recipe in my version.

Chipotle Lime Shrimp Tacos.  These shrimp tacos are my very favorite meal!

My Version: Chipotle Lime Shrimp Tacos

Crockpot Chicken Chili.  This is a really simple crockpot recipe.  I prefer this to beef chili.  It also happens to be a Weight Watcher's Recipe.  My link below was posted last week when I was posting on the topic of freezer meals so it also includes some other freezer meals. (No picture, I'm sorry!)

Peanut Butter Banana Wraps: This is a quick snack/breakfast/dessert idea.  My aunt actually told me that she does this minus the chocolate chips and adds honey.  I think that might be pretty good too!
