Pinteresting Foods

I am running out of titles for these.  I think I will pick one name and just keep adding roman numerals after it.  Vote on your favorite below!

Let's start off with what I call Pretty Much Awesome Brownies.  I found the recipe here.  I brought these as a snack to the workers at VBS so I couldn't keep the original name, which wasn't church appropriate.  The road to pretty much awesome includes chocolate chip cookie dough, Oreos and brownies.  Let's just take a moment to admire the awesome, shall we?

And I still have the brownies to go!  When they come out of the oven (smelling pretty much awesome), they look a bit like this...

But wait, when you cut them you get this...

Yes and yes.  I cut these in small pieces because they were so rich.  I also cut them up and put them on a plate so no one knew I had one or two before I gave them away.  ;o)

Chicken Caprese

Like the author of this recipe, I too love the wonderful combination of tomatoes, fresh mozzarella and fresh basil.  Beautiful too, isn't it?  I REALLY want to grow basil here in the new house.  Let me know your basil growing experience in the comments because I want to be successful here!  Outside and maybe inside during the winter?  I have a great area for a potted plant in my kitchen.  I digress...

This meal has two pinterest recipes in it:

Pesto Chicken Pizza

I love pesto! (So, not a surprise that) This was amazing! I don't recall if I made this pesto or not, but regardless, the pizza was so good. Definitely making this one again.  Here is the recipe, but essentially it is pizza with pesto instead of pizza sauce.  We topped it with fresh tomatoes and chicken.

I also tried some Sauteed Corn, Bacon and Scallions with the pizza.  Yum and yum.  I might have actually used real bacon and not turkey bacon.  I really wish I had some bacon-cooking skills.  Sigh.

Garlic Pesto Chicken with Tomato Cream Penne

The author of this recipe suggests not using skim milk, and I would agree.  She also says to use half a bottle of marinade for two chicken breasts and that was too much.  I'll try 1/3 or 1/4 a bottle next time.  The flavor of the chicken really goes well with the flavor of the pasta.

Cracker Barrel Chicken Tenders

These made the whole house smell good.  And they tasted just as great!  The recipe can be found here.  I cooked these until they were dark with very little liquid left in the pan- perfect!

There you have it- more adventures in making recipes found on Pinterest.  Don't forget to share your basil growing tips in the comments!
