This month I tried a couple recipes that have been on my Pinterest “recipes to try” board for a long time, and also a few things that I just recently pinned. Apparently I was really into tomatoes and bacon this month! Here are my new recipe successes from June – click the recipe title to view the recipes.
Let’s start with a recipe that has been on my Pinterest board for YEARS. I probably pinned this one four years ago, and I finally got around to making it! This was taken to a party at work and it was a huge hit. I used garden rotini pasta which gave the salad even more color and texture. The avocado pulls everything together with a delicious creaminess! I made the salad the night before and added the avocado just before serving.
I’ve eaten this dish at my mom’s house, but this was my first attempt at making my own. I used Frannie’s Lard Crust for the pie shell because it’s the only pie crust recipe I’ve ever used with success! 🙂 Paul doesn’t really like tomatoes, but he actually thought this tasted pretty good. When the tomatoes are covered in bacon, mayonnaise and cheddar cheese, what’s not to love? This makes a great summertime supper with a tossed salad and a glass of sweet tea!
I made two other new recipes this month that didn’t get photographed (#bloggerfail), but they are good enough that it warrants sharing them without pictures!
- Chicken Parmesan Roll-ups: Another recipe that I pinned years ago! This one required a little more prep work than I usually attempt on a week night, but they were perfect for the weekend. I used marinara sauce instead of diced tomatoes, and my tomato-wary hubby loved this dish!
- Bacon Cheeseburger Wraps: These were SO yummy and full of flavor! I also like them because you get the same taste as a bacon cheeseburger, but without using as much meat per person. Frugal and delicious, yes please!
Have you tried any new recipes lately? I’ve teamed up again this month with some of my favorite girls to share all the new recipes we tried and loved during April. Be sure to visit their posts (linked below) for lots of new recipe ideas! We all have fairly different cooking styles & preferences, so I know there will be something for everyone.
If you’re a fan of Pinterest, we created a special board just for all our favorite new recipes!
