I got out of my recipe rut...

What a girl to do when she's in a recipe rut, the same old boring dinners, on
auto repeat. I decided to check my Pinterest Food Board and actually try the 
recipes instead of just pin them! Interesting concept, no?
 These are the recipes we loved that I will most definitely make again... 
 Grilled Lemon Chicken Skewers
I made these for a BBQ last Sunday, delicious, fresh, lemony, perfect for summer and super easy.  
 Slow Cooker Carnitas
Yum, yum and yum!
Again, super easy - you may notice this is a theme. :) I followed the updated version of the recipe,
 with a couple changes, I added all of the onion and no milk when I baked them at the end of the recipe.

Chicken Caesar Pasta Salad 
If you love pasta salad and Caesar salad this is for you! Super easy, and the romaine gives it a nice crunch. 

Garlic Mushroom Bruschetta
Bruschetta is one of our faves. Super easy, fresh tomatoes, basil and romano cheese on grilled bread.
 (I posted the pic below on Instagram the evening I made it) We loved the addition of garlic mushroom topping! 

Grilled Pizza
This is fun for the entire family, everyone gets to prepare their own personal pizza from a bar of toppings. 
We finish it off with hot off the grill dough drizzled with honey for dessert.

Strawberry Shortcake in a Jar
A huge hit at the BBQ! What is it about individual servings in a little mason jar?
I used pound cake from Costco bakery, cut into chunks and fresh whipped cream. This topping presentation
 is beyond fun, but I went for super easy :) and put the lids back on the jars. 
Btw, the leftovers kept in the fridge nicely for another day before they disappeared.  

All recipes can be found here on my Pinterest Food Board.

Do you have any new recipes we should know about?

Ok now I'm hungry! LOL! YUM, I'm going to have to try some new recipes - I've sort of let the cooking slide since I've been so overwhelmed with sewing and furniture painting lately!
