Weekend Cooking: Top Ten Favorite Pinterest Recipes
Weekend Cooking, hosted at Beth Fish Reads, is open to anyone who has any kind of food-related post to share: Book (novel, nonfiction) reviews, cookbook reviews, movie reviews, recipes, random thoughts, gadgets, quotations, photographs. If your post is even vaguely foodie, feel free to grab the button and link up anytime over the weekend. You do not have to post on the weekend. Please link to your specific post, not your blog's home page.
The Pin It and Do It challenge may be over, but this week I've decided to follow Katherine's lead and share my Top Ten Favorite Pinterest Recipes.
The list below is decidedly seafood heavy and devoid of desserts - we cook and eat a lot of fish, but I'm not much of a baker. Clicking on the name of the dish will take you directly to the blog/website's recipe, not my pin.
Top Ten Favorite Pinterest Recipes
Butternut Squash Quinoa Casserole from Wendy Polisi- I just discovered this recipe a few weeks ago and have already made it twice. I might have even had the leftovers for breakfast one day.
Apple Pecan Chicken Salad from Smells Like Home - This has become my "go to" chicken salad. It looks so elegant served on a croissant.
Classic Crab Cakes from myrecipes.com - Like the title says, a 'classic' and delicious recipe.
Chicken Piccata from myrecipes.com - I could eat something piccata (chicken, fish, pork) once a week. Yum.
Seared Halibut with Caper and Tomato Pan Sauce from Mountain Mama Cooks - Halibut is a favorite and I can whip this dish up in 15 minutes.
Mussels in White Wine from Ina Garten - I prepared mussels at home for the first time about a year ago - so easy! After experimenting with several recipes, this one has become our favorite.
Easy Honey-Beer Chicken from betsylife - A quick meal using ingredients I always have on hand.
Flounder Milanese with Arugula and Tomatoes from Skinnytaste - Another meal I could eat every week, and it couldn't be any easier to prepare. The arugula/tomato salad is the perfect accompaniment - I usually add a green veggie, too.
Seared Swordfish with a Lemon and Wine Rosemary Sauce from Simple Comfort Food - Perfect with herbs from my summer garden!
Slow Cooker Honey Sesame Chicken from Tracey's Culinary Adventures (adapted from Skinnytaste) - My daughter's favorite. I should probably compare it with the original Skinnytaste recipe.
