Recipe Reviews from My Pinterest Food Board

So I'm doing this thing where I actually try out some of the recipes I prolifically Pin to my Recipes and Foodie Tips board, rather than just click "Pin It" over and over until my eyes pop out. Imagine that! And there have been times where I've Pinned a recipe from a blog or website and wondered if it would actually live up to the hype. So consider today's post my tried and tested review of a couple recent recipe Pins with my photos to back it up. I'd love to know if you try them too!

Crock Pot Meatball Subs from Growing with Grabbie

This one was as easy as dumping a bag of frozen meatballs in my crock pot along with some sauce and spices. The store didn't have any hoagie rolls, so I bought some ciabatta rolls and it was just as tasty. A great weeknight special!

Beer Bread from Dulce Dough
I searched and searched for a tasty beer bread recipe because I didn't want to spend $87 per loaf buying the mix from Tastefully Simple. We had everything we needed, and it was perfection! Best when served warm, and don't skip pouring the butter on the top!

Chicken and Rice Casserole from pinch of yum

If you sense a theme of "easy" among these recipes, you would be correct. My sis sent me the link for this one, and I am forever grateful. This recipe has healthy options, but I went for the cream of chicken soups 'cause ain't nobody got time for that. I also leave the chicken breasts whole; doesn't make a difference in the outcome. I also add frozen broccoli florets. Still a yummy meal.
