Thoughts for Thursday: Recent Pinterest Meals We've Tried {and Loved}

Linking up with Annie and Natalie today! 

As y'all know, I love to cook. I'm by no means a gourmet chef, but getting into the kitchen is therapeutic for me after a long day...even though at the time, it can seem stressful and just like one more thing to do, it's nice to sit down to a home cooked meal. 

I'm always trying to new recipes {seriously, what did we do before Pinterest?} and bookmarking the ones we really loved. Since I can't photograph food to save my life, here are some of our recent Pinterest meals we've tried {and loved}: 

Cooking Classy's Garlic, Lemon and Parmesan Oven-Roasted Zucchini

I like to serve this as a side with either grilled chicken, a pork tenderloin or a steak. It's so easy and yummy...even Walker likes them! 

This is very much a meal-in-one, but I do like to serve it with a side of cous-cous. It couldn't be easier! 

It truly doesn't get any easier than this. One pan, a meal-in-one, low-carb and delicious for all. I consider that a win-win!

I know I talk about these far too often, but they're just so dang good! We seriously eat them probably once a week since I discovered them. They're easy, fresh and seriously, even Walker eats them. 

We love shrimp and grits, and being from the south, this is almost a staple. However, I don't like how much butter, cream cheese and other ingredients are in your typical shrimp and grits. Enter Cooking Light, subbing the most fattening ingredients for less, and you've got a wonderful, somewhat healthy version of the yummy staple we all love!

You can't not love this recipe. {Obviously I make a little batch without vodka before I serve to Walker.} It's so easy, tasty and if you have a bar cart like us, you can just grab the vodka and pop it in this recipe. It's yummy! 

Have you tried any of these? What are some of your recent favorites?


  1. That oven roasted salmon looks great; the fewer the pans the better! And you seriously have me thinking about those fish tacos they look delicious!

  2. Yum - the skinny penne vodka looks amazing as do the fish tacos - I have to add those to my list!

  3. Those fish tacos look yummy!! Thanks for sharing lady!
