Cooking with Pinterest

This semester, I'm not teaching any night classes.  I teach in the daytime (I kind of take a long lunch two days a week), and then I'll have another one of those weekend classes that lasts 3 weekends in April.  I haven't had every night free in almost 5 years!  I'm finally getting used to actually keeping food in the house to cook dinner every night.  


Being sick of the same old stuff, I've been hitting Pinterest up for new ideas.  The past 2 weeks I've had great success as finding good things to cook.  Here are 3 of the thumbs up recipes:

(1) I like to cook several things that need cooked chicken as a base.  I tend to either boil the chicken, or put it in the crock pot to cook, but then it just tastes so blah.  I ran across this recipe for a great way to cook chicken with flavor...

(2) I have been having a real craving for Broccoli Beef and this was a good recipe...

(3) I made this recipe for Lasagna Rolls, but I tweaked it.  I followed the recipe exactly, but I shredded two chicken breasts (from above) and added that to the cheese mixture.  I think they looks so fancy, but it was really pretty easy.  I froze half of the recipe to cook at a later time.  
It was really very good...

Have y'all come across any new good recipes?  I'm always on the lookout for something new to try.

Yum yum! Pinterest is so good for food recipes. I stumbled on one recently for spicy Thai noodles and they are DELICIOUS. I've added the link here in case you might be interested. They're really easy, and I load mine up with lots of thin slices of carrots and cilantro on top.
