Trial and Error

I've started working on all those recipes I've been finding on Pinterest.

I need quick, easy, not-a-lot-of-ingredients recipes.

And I found quiet a few. Some were delicious, and some....not so much.

1. Bunny Bait

My little helper approves of this recipe

I'll start with the yummiest. What's not to love about a white chocolate M&M mix? When I make this again, I won't mix the ingredients on a baking sheet(?)...I'll do it in a bowl, and I'll leave the pretzels out. Also, just in time for Easter, if you follow Bloom Designs' Blog, she'll send you a free "Bunny Bait" printable.

2. Chicken Noodle Soup

One of those dinners that Noel says, "it's good", but eats as little as he can get away with. So incredibly bland.

3. Crock Pot Chicken Cordon Bleu

Yes! Easy, crock pot meal. Deliciousness.

4. Crock Pot Baked Potatoes

I can not make a baked potato to save my life. Seriously. What's the big deal? I have no clue. I have tried every way possible, I have called my dad to get baked potato advice, nothing seems to work for me. I told Noel to be on call to run through the Chick-Fil-A drive thru on the day I made these.

Success!!! The very first time I have made a baked potato that doesn't taste like a disaster in foil.

5. Frozen Fruit Bites

Maybe I just don't know how to properly freeze stuff, but these yogurt fruit bites were crazy.

6. Hawaiian Chicken

Again....crock pot lovin. 3 ingredients (just add rice to the meal). Yummy.

7. Pizza Casserole

There was a lot of hype over this recipe. The reviews were incredible. I thought it wasok. Did I hate it? No. Will I make it again? Probably not. It was a little bland for my taste. It might have worked for me if I had had some serious garlic bread with it.

Well...that's that.

Do you have any yummy, easy recipes to send my way?!

Sad about the yogurt bites. Those are on my list to try. Did they taste good and just look a little funky???

Okay couple comments here:
1) you cannot cut out the pretzels of the bunny bait!!! That's my favorite part.
2) the chicken noodle soup wasn't terrible, it just needed a lot of salt and pepper.
3) the chicken cordon bleau, Hawaiian chicken and the baked potatoes are officially "Noel Approved" and can be made at anytime.

I have a brand new, never out of the box crock pot. I am too intimidated to use it. Which sounds silly, I just don't know what to make. It has now been decided that the chicken cordon bleu will be my first adventure, thanks!

Alexa said...

Great tips Ashley...that chicken cordon blue looks amazing! I really like taking small chicken stripes and covering them in fresh lemon juice and lemon pepper, bake and serve with potatoes or rice. Simple and good!

Great post idea! I've had several of those hits and misses with Pinterest recipes.

Oh my gosh bunny bate! Love the idea! Looks great!

And I think my fiance would salivate immediately if he saw that pepperoni casserole! So up his ally... But I'm probably with you. I like fresh greenery (spinach, asparagus etc.) around these spring months! And speaking of garlic bread, I found this awesome garlic bread pesto recipe that I just really need to try!

Hold the phone... your husband commented on your blog? How did you swing that? :)

Emmy said...

You are so good- I really need to go through my pinterest recipes like that.

And might have to try out those crockpot potatoes!

Google "Hungry Girl Chicken & Dumplings" - they are SO good. I add lemon juice, red pepper flakes and a bit of basil, and it's anything but bland!
