Sometimes finding a recipe on Pinterest is a daunting task. There are so many, how to choose?!?
For that matter cooking in general is not really my strong suit, but I try!
And I do actually enjoy it. Turning on some Frank Sinatra, pouring a glass of red wine and gettin busy (((cooking))) in the kitchen is fun!
As long as I have a recipe to follow I’m solid. I’m just not one of those ‘a pinch of this and a smidge of that would go good together’ type people because I have no idea!
So anyway in my many failed cooking pursuits I’ve come across recipes on Pinterest that I’ve dubbed as keepers because they turned out, edible yes, but also good!! You can find all of these recipes through my Pinterest board Keeper Recipes as well (I’m hoping to keep the count growing…I’ve got a lot of yummy looking recipes to work through on my regular Food board).
Here are five tested and approved recipes that I’ve made so far (ps I really like sriracha):

This SPICY SHRIMP AND SRIRACHA LO MEIN is the recipe I have made the most from these five Pinterest Keepers. It’s dayum GOOD. I made it for my parents and then my mom liked it so much that she occasionally makes it now too! Definitely one to add to your shuffle of recipes. I think I even have a post entirely dedicated to this floating around somewhere…

This SLOW-COOKER HONEY SRIRACHA BBQ CHICKEN is super flavorful and great for cooking ahead while you’re at work, out running errands or hanging out with the kids! The sriracha adds a nice flavor, but this recipe wasn’t really spicy at all!

Have I mentioned that I like sriracha? These BEER BATTERED FRIED PICKLES w/ SRIRACHA SAUCE are fun to make! I wouldn’t eat these too often, but they’re a yummy little snackettizer!

ED MONTES’ CUBAN SANDWICH is AMAZING. It tastes just as good as it smells while it’s cooking!I also have a post on this sandwich. Mom had me cook it two nights in a row that we were with them; so good!

I follow Half Baked Harvest on Pinterest (do yourself a favor and follow her artful cooking! Her Pinterest feed is always amazing!!). This CUBAN CHICKEN and BLACK BEAN QUINOA BOWL was my first of hers and it wont be my last! The only thing I would do differently next time is add a little bit more spicy-ness to it! But SO healthy and yummy.
Have any good recipes I should try next? I’m always looking for new ones to try! Share below in the comments 🙂
