Menu Monday | New Recipes To Try #5

The best Pinterest recipes that you have to try!
It’s the last Monday of the month! That means 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! Also a special welcome to our 4th meal round up blogger – Stephanie from Wife Mommy Me! So there are going be SO many recipes to add to your must try list.

Thanks to some sweet friends, we’ve had a chance to try several yummy recipes that have now been pinned to make again. So delicious!

Spinach and Cheese Strata from Smitten Kitchen

Spinach & Egg Strata from Smitten Kitchen

I’ve made this several times for various brunches, but I pulled it out again to make this past weekend for a baby shower brunch. Yum! I forgot how delicious this was. And if you aren’t familiar with Smitten Kitchen’s recipes yet, it’s an excellent source for just about every dish imaginable.

Rhubarb Cake

This…. yum! It wasn’t exactly what I expected, but it tastes like a delicious hybrid between a summer dessert (thanks to the rhubarb) and coffee cake! Definitely a winner for when you’re hosting a brunch or need something lovely to have on hand with some coffee. I’m confident I ate half the pan myself.

Creating a 2 Week Menu

This is something I’m excited to actually implement starting this week! We’ve been living off the kindness of friends delivering food so far this last month, but this week we’re getting back to simple menu planning. I decided it would be easy to shop if I pre-created a 2 week menu and just reuse it over and over this summer. K.I.S.S.

Asian Noodle Salad from the Pioneer Woman

Another winner of a delivered dish! It was such a good cold pasta salad, but completely different in flavor profile from the usual pasta salads. My friend added cashews to it for protein, and then later when we were eating the leftovers, I chopped up some Trader Joe’s veggie chicken strips to add. Perfect! The sauce was delicious! I plan on doubling up on that next time to ensure there is enough to go around.

What are some amazing recipes you’ve tried lately? Are you guilty of the Pinterest board that goes neglected like me?

    That rhubarb cake looks SO good. I keep wanting to plant some rhubarb. I need to make that happen I would love to have a stash of it to call my own.

    I’m going to keep that Asian Noodle Salad in mind for the next time I take a meal to someone. Can’t wait to hear how your 2-week rotating menu works out this summer……hope you’ll recap that eventually!
