There are so many recipes to try on Pinterest, that I forget to actually make them. At least this forces me to try a few recipes that get pinned.
Here’s a rundown of what I tried!
Goat Cheese + Carmelized Onion Pizza | This was one of those “tried long ago but forgot all about it” recipes on my Pinterest board. Man is it good! The recipe here uses a flat bread crust, but honestly, you could adapt this flavor combo for a lot of things, not just pizza! It would make a dandy pasta recipe as well.
Veggie Black Bean Enchiladas | These. Were. Amazing. (the second time) Funny story! This recipe has you make your own enchilada sauce. It’s SUPER easy, and could easily be doubled for the freezer. Anyway, I misread the “chili powder” ingredient and used cayenne instead – a whole whopping tablespoon’s worth! It was SO spicy that my habanero-pepper loving husband could barely eat it. The second time I used the called-for chili powder and it was just fine. This is one of those recipes you could refer back to and just switch up the enchilada filling with whatever you have on hand.
Austrian-style Potato Salad | I LOVE this potato salad! I’ve made it for years. It was a recipe in my trusty Cook’s Illustrated magazine years ago and was thrilled to find it online to pin. This potato salad is super creamy and flavorful, but uses zero mayonnaise! Very picnic friendly! The secret is mashing some of the cooked potato in the cooking liquid to make a creamy sauce, and then dress the salad. Genius!
Quick + Easy Crispy Tofu | Where has this recipe been all my life? I am constantly trying different ways to make tofu crispy, but it always falls flat. This was totally doable and it got added to my trusty, old school recipe box. It was that simple.
