Pinterest recipes.....

I made quite a bit of food from my Pinterest board last week.  Some of it was good, some was a bust (I've removed those from my board).  I thought I'd share the hits over here in case anyone was needing some inspiration!

We made this Slow Cooker Tiki Masala for dinner one night.  We also made tumeric basmati rice with peas and naan.  It was delish!!  B enjoyed it numerous days for leftovers (my reflux couldn't handle it, so I had to forgo the leftovers).  There's also a butter chicken recipe on this site that we'll be making in the near future.  It's a little more work and ingredients than your average slow cooker recipe, but 100% worth it.

On Friday we hosted our neighborhood monthly party, so I made all of the above recipes plus my favorite brownies for everyone to graze on while we chatted, enjoyed cocktails, and played Euchre.  It was a really, really fun night.  These pretzel bites were a huge hit and I made homemade nacho cheese to dip them in.  I had to adjust the recipe a bit b/c I don't have a bread maker, but it was easy to do, and even though they didn't brown as well as the above pic, they were sooooo good.  I ate WAY too many (so did everyone else!).  Definitely something to have on hand for a party evening!  The pumpkin spice donut holes were a perfect fall bite (says B- I didn't end up trying one before they were all gone).  I didn't have mini muffin tins, so I made them in regular muffin tins and then cut them in half prior to the cinnamon sugar step.  The peanut butter chocolate dessert was decadent and so worth every calorie.  If you like chocolate and peanut butter, you MUST try this.  It keeps well for a few days in the fridge too!!

I'm going to post about our Thanksgiving appetizers next week if they're good.  They would be great for a holiday party too! 

Hopefully you all had a wonderful weekend!!
