I had a Pinterest conversation on the phone with my mom recently that went something like this:
Mom: Tay, what is Pinterest??? I've signed up for it but I just don't understand.
Me: I really don't know that you're going to get into it.
Mom: What do you mean? Everyone is on it and I just need you to explain it to me. I'm SO GOOD at Facebook and I feel like I'm letting down all my Pinterest followers. They expect me to excel on here the way I do on Facebook.
Me: You're ridiculous. Seriously I don't think it's going to be your thing. You don't have young children, you don't craft, you don't care much about decorating, and you don't cook ever.
Mom: Oh. Yeah, maybe you're right.
Needless to say, I think she has one pin and she hasn't been back on. No need to follow her.
The one thing I CAN handle on Pinterest... all the recipes. I have such a good time trying them out! I thought I would post a couple that I've discovered that have turned out well. These are all easy, fast, and budget-friendly.
Parmesan-Crusted Tilapia- I can really appreciate a dish that only has 5 ingredients! This is so simple and quick. We have made it several times and Jonah likes it too!
Chicken Parmesan- I've had a go-to chicken parm recipe for quite a while and then decided to give this a shot. Again... so easy and DELICIOUS! Just talking about it makes me want to fix it again this week. Watching the video is kind of a pain, so be sure to right down the steps as he explains them.
Healthy Baked Chicken Nuggets- definitely a hit that we've made more than once!
Pineapple Salsa- this unique flavor is for a more adventurous eater. Oh so addicting!
Better-Than-Takeout Chicken Fried Rice- made this earlier this week and it made for great leftovers too!
Of course I've tried others that haven't turned out as well, but I have hundreds more I have yet to try! If you have a favorite Pinterest recipe, please comment and let me know what I need to make!
