Sharing is caring, right? Just like the “Tries” function on Pinterest, I wanted to share some recipes that I have tried lately. Some of these were ones I found on Pinterest, and others were from blogs that I read. I’m telling you all about the meals I have made lately that were hits at our house! I snapped quick pictures of all of these with my phone so that I’d be sure to remember them.
The first is this 30 Minute Chili from Clean Eating Recipes blog. We ate this for the first round of the NFL playoffs (while the Panthers were still contenders, boo) and it was perfect for a cold Sunday night. One change I made was to only use 1 1/2 cups of chicken stock. I wanted it to be thicker than the recipe made. But, I will absolutely make this again. We topped ours with grated raw cheddar, plain Greek yogurt, cilantro, and avocado.
The next recipe is One Pot Greek Lemon Chicken and Rice from Recipe Tin Eats blog. The rice was flavorful and delicious, and the chicken was tender and perfectly cooked. This dish was a hit as well! We served ours with sautéed zucchini and steamed broccoli one night, and steamed green peas the next. Another dish that will be on repeat. This would be a great meal to take to a friend with a new baby, or to serve if friends or family are coming to dinner. We doubled ours (used 2 pans) and had tons of leftovers for the week.
If you are looking for comfort food, that is also paleo, this is the dish for you! I found this recipe for Paleo Chicken Pot Pie while reading Nesting with Grace’s blog, and I am so glad I did. We ate this a few days before Christmas, before driving around to look at Christmas lights. This dish is grain- and dairy-free, but still so comforting. My boys ate this really well. I used Christmas-themed cookie cutters for the crust, and I also made a monster truck with some of the leftover crust. Because, you know, #boymom 🙂 I am planning to make this again soon.
The last recipe I wanted to share is a sweet one! Rachael’s Good Eats is one of my favorite accounts to follow on instagram. She is so positive and motivating, and healthy. She eats REAL food, and comes up with fun ways to enjoy treats without including all of the bad-for-you ingredients. These cashew butter cookies are a spin-off of one of her most popular recipes, the skillet cookie. Davis and I made this Cookie Skillet Individuals together, and we loved them! They are just sweet enough, but without any of the guilt.
I’d love to hear any great Pinterest recipe finds that any of you have tried lately! If you have any that others need to know about, please share them in the comments.
