Recipes I've tried on Pinterest & love!

I've pinned a lot of different recipes on my Pinterest page. I haven't gotten around to most of them. But there have been a few that I've tried and really really LOVE. Things that I've made more than once. I wanted to share my favorite Pinterest recipes! Dinners & Desserts!

1. Cinnamon Roll Cake









This is AMAZING. I've made it twice. Once for my husband & I. And a 2nd time to take over to my parents house. It is sooo good. And so much easier than trying to make actual cinnamon rolls (I suck at cutting my rolls even sizes). Plus this recipe is super simple to put together. Definitely put the sugar glaze on while it's still warm, because it seeps into the cake and when you let it sit for 1 whole day before eating- wow. All that sugar and cinnamon crystallizes into something out of this world! Which is why I'm sharing this recipe as #1!

2. Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies







I love this recipe! I've made it 3x's since I found it. It's super simple with only 5 ingredients and no flour! These are definitely my new favorite peanut butter cookie. :)

3. Coffee mug cake








I've made chocolate mug cake before but this coffee mug cake it even better. With butter, cinnamon & sugar. Love it! Plus it only takes about 1 minute in the microwave!

4. Sweet & Spicy Bacon Chicken











This is sooo good! You dip the chicken in spices, wrap a slice of bacon around it, roll it around in brown sugar & bake it. Making these again this week! (Bacon is always good! lol!) It tasted like something I'd order from a restaurant.

















Tip: This how I make my bacon wrapped chicken. I line a deep casserole dish with foil. Mix my brown sugar & spices together in a bowl. (I use McCormick Montreal Chicken Seasoning), roll each chicken slice in the mixture (I cut my chicken breasts in slices of 2 or 3); then wrap a bacon slice around each chicken slice. Cook for 40 minutes at 400 degrees. When it's done, use tongs and place each chicken slice on a plate with paper towels to drain the grease before serving. The paper towel step is a MUST, or else it will be too greasy. LOVE this recipe! 

5. Breakfast Egg Rolls








I didn't follow this recipe exactly. I took the idea and ran with it. You can find egg roll wrappers in the grocery, they are usually in the veggie section near the cabbage. They give you a lot of wrappers in one package, so I've put just about anything you can think into an egg roll wrapper, lol. Our favorite combo was cooked bacon, scrambled eggs & cheese. Then I fried the egg rolls with Smart Balance oil until they turned golden.

6. Bacon Wrapped Cheese Burgers.










(This is my own photo.) I saw a lot of these burgers on Pinterest, but they had way too many slices of bacon on them & were usually grilled. I put together some homemade ground beef patties (salt, pepper, splash of worcestershire sauce & 2 tablespoons of ketchup for about 1 pound of beef). Then I wrapped 2 slices of thick cut bacon around the patties, smashed them flat, lined them on foil on my deep rimmed cookie sheet & baked them for 30 minutes at 375. Top with velveeta cheese on a sesame bun. Yum! 

7. THE best homemade brownies EVER!


















These are THE BEST homemade brownies I've ever had. It's my go-to recipe. They are chewy, they are dense, and best of all easy to make, you only need some Cocoa powder and few other ingredients. 

None of these recipes are exactly healthy, but they sure are good! ;-)
