Trish is at it again. Her now-famous Pin It and Do It Challenge is back for the month of October. Round 1 in May was a delicious, resounding success, but August passed in a blur and I totally missed the summer event. With time running short, the entire family was delighted when I announced my intention to cook 'pinned' recipes all week... and complete the challenge in a single post. Here are the recipes I selected:
Monday's recipe came from Peanut Butter Fingers. My oldest daughter follows this blog and I repinned the recipe after seeing it on her board. It was a quick and easy dinner, although a little bland - perhaps my palate missed the full-sodium soy sauce? The recipe calls for the shrimp to be broiled, but I sauteed them instead. Next time, I'll spice it up just a little more.
bookchickdi (thanks, Diane!). I used Heineken beer and followed the recipe exactly as written. It was delicious, and I was sorry there were no leftovers for lunch the next day. This recipe is a keeper.
Audrey's blog, so I followed her link and pinned the recipe as it appears on Pinch My Salt. It was actually my second time baking the cake, which has earned a permanent place in my fall dessert repertoire. This is the photo from Pinterest - mine was not as clear, or as appealing.
Overall, another successful Pin It and Do It Challenge. Thanks, Trish!
