Food for Thought

Are any of you as addicted to Pinterest as I am?  I love the fact that there is even an iPhone app so while I am feeding Brandon I can still check out what is new on there; especially the recipe ideas.  I am planning on trying out many new recipes in the weeks to come!!!

I have recently purchased a new slow cooker, the Hamilton Beach Set and Forget Crock Pot.  I figure this is the best way to make dinner with a newborn in the house.

I saw this about a month ago at Kohl's and waited until it went on sale to purchase it.  I purchased it on Saturday and have already used it twice since then with two recipes that I found on Pinterest.

So far I have made some fabulous Buffalo Chicken Dip (sorry, this was devoured before pictures could be taken) and the Honey Parmesan Pork Roast (picture below) using the slow cooker.

I have also been trying out some other recipes and have posted some pics below.  I have linked some of the recipes below if you are interested in trying them out for yourself.

Honey Parmesan Pork Roast with Parmesan Roasted Potatoes
The roast was super easy to make but I ended up not doing the gravy sauce that was recommended because it just didn't taste good to me.  The potatoes needed to be cooked longer than was recommended by the recipe to get them nice and soft.  This was a good meal and I will most likely be making it again but with some modifications.  BTW, we ate it again last night and it was even better as left overs.

Chicken Piccata with Kraft Home-style Macaroni and Caesar Salad
I LOVE Chicken Piccata and this is the easiest recipe that I have been able to find.  I have made this 2x in the past 2 weeks.  If you like lemon and capers then you have to try this out.

Chili Dog Casserole  
This was a last minute meal and I needed to make something that a 9 year old would eat also.  It was really simple to make and was devoured.  Definitely not the healthiest option but who needs healthy all the time.
