I have been using Pinterest a lot lately in order to pick recipes. I posted a few of them here, here and here. But that is only the tip of iceberg. I thought today I would post a few more that I have tried along with my opinion of them.
Super Easy Cinnamon Rolls: And they really ARE super easy. This is my favorite food pin on Pinterest thus far.
Buttermilk Carmel Sauce: This was really good, and it made a TON. I was able to fill my old maple syrup jar with it. One thing that wasn't noted in the recipe, but that happened to mine, was that it tended to solidify when I stored it in the fridge. I have to microwave it to pour it but the flavor is great
Nantucket Cranberry Pie: Originally from the Pioneer Woman. The recipe called for fresh cranberries and I used frozen. They floated to the top of the "pie" and it wasn't nearly as pretty as Ree's, but it tasted good.
Honey Whole Wheat Bread: This was a great recipe. Mixed it in the bread machine and baked it in the oven (the photo is only the dough. It baked up to a nice golden brown) I liked that it had really common ingredients that I always have lying around.
Apple Cranberry Pie with Streusel Crust: This was good. Too tart for the kids, but a nice alternative to apple pie. I was able to use up leftover cranberry sauce which was a plus
Hasselback Potatoes: These were only okay. The edges were crisp while the centers were flavorless and mushy. The kids liked them, but I wasn't a fan.
Icing worthy sugar cookies: These were highly rated and so I gave them a shot. They weren't super sweet which made them perfect for icing. Overall they were good, I would make them again.
Ice Cream Cone Cupcake Cake: I made this for E's birthday party. Not really a recipe, but it was Pinterest inspired.
They went along with these cupcakes that were baked directly in ice cream cones (just make cupcakes in muffin tins without wrappers and stick a cone upside down in the batter):
Overall, I would say about 80% of the recipes I have tried thus far have been at least okay. I have only had a few total failures, which is better than my track record for google.
