Menu Monday | New Pinterest Recipes You Have to Try!

Some favorite recipes found on Pinterest that you HAVE to try today!

Happy Monday! Who survived that HUGE winter storm?? Here in NC we got a few inches of snow, followed by a nice layer of ice. It was nasty to get out and about. But great news! I see our grass now. All is well.

This week, I’m teaming up with Whitney from Come Home for Comfort and Whitney from Polka-Dotty Place to share our favorite Pinterest recipes that you HAVE to try!

Anyone else guilty of over-pinning recipes, but hardly cooking them?? Me! Me! Here are a few that I have cooked over the last month and that are Katie Approved!

Sweet Potato Burrito with Avocado Salsa Verde Sauce from Cookie and Kate

Sweet Potato Burrito Smothered in Avocado Salsa Verde from Cookie and Kate

This food blog is one of my go-tos for delicious vegetarian recipes. And this did NOT disappoint! The burrito filling is easy to switch up with other ingredients you may have on hand. But that sauce is a MUST MAKE!

Recipe Round Up - 7 Layer Dip

The World’s Best Seven Layer Bean Dip from Pretty Providence

This is perfect for your upcoming Super Bowl Party! We’ve eaten this twice in 2 weeks and it’s delicious. Easy to throw together for a fun dinner or perfect to haul to a potluck with friends. You can add to the veggie toppings for the top to suit your tastes. I made this over the weekend and added sliced spinach and cilantro.

Recipe Round Up - Corn Chowder

Sweet Corn Chowder from Maebells

I’ve made this several times so far, but it was definitely a must make this weekend with the huge snowstorm. My husband isn’t a soup guy but this one is something he loves to eat! If that’s not an endorsement, I don’t know what is!

Don’t those all look yummy?

Check out Come Home for Comfort and Polka-Dotty Place for their recommended recipes from this month!

    Yumm-o! Yes, I’m guilty of going crazy with pinning and trying and then I suddenly become a pinner who isn’t trying – uncool! I look forward to trying some of your faves! Have a wonderful week – xo Amanda

    • Katie @ Cup of Tea says:

      Basically the same recipe! That avocado dressing was killer. But I’ve also made a Salsa Verde/Greek yogurt mix in a pinch.

  2. Mrs.T says:

    Wow, thanks for sharing these! And thanks for introducing me to Cookie and Kate. I had not seen that site and I know I’m going to be pinning recipes like crazy. I need to make those burritos soon!

  3. Whitney Jordan says:

    I’m a sucker for any Mexican dip so your 7 layer dip sounds amazing! I’ll have to keep that in mind for my Superbowl menu. Love your place settings and the assortment of food options. I love that your menu has a balance of delicious recipes and fun things like the food truck rodeo – yum!!

  4. Whitney says:

    Yep, I agree with Whitney Jordan…that dip sounds amazing! I have a recipe for a mexican casserole with very similar ingredients that I always end up eating out of the dish with a handful of chips. 🙂

  5. Emily says:

    We had snow flurries here in Florida while you all were getting the snow over the weekend, so we had some warm, winter meals too. 🙂 The sweet corn chowder sounds like a great recipe to try this winter!
