What's Cookin?

I've tried some new Pinterest recipes lately and I'm not going to lie I wasn't too disappointed...
Two of the recipes I've made lately made it on Kaleb's list of favorites and he made sure I would be making them again!

This recipe was so easy and SO YUMMY! The only thing I'll do differently next time is cut way down on the amount of red pepper flakes, it was too spicy for my boys to enjoy. Other than that this was hands down one of our favorites meals to date! I'm pretty sure Kaleb was thinking "What's Olive Garden??". He said this would definitely satisfy his Olive Garden craving and I agree.

This also made our list of favorites! I made this dish with Italian sausage as opposed to ground beef and I added extra cheese (cheddar) to the top. It made lots of food and we had plenty of leftovers to last a couple of days worth of lunches after. 

Tomato Basil Cheddar Soup

I served this soup with cheesy bread and a caesar salad. Perfect meal for fall (even though I made it on one of the hottest days of the week). I'll be making it again but I think this time I'll use beaters to thin it out a bit. It does come out a little chunky with the tomatoes. 

Black Bean & Chicken Enchilada Casserole

This was a really good recipe, I'm just sad that this pregnancy has brought an aversion to chicken for me. In this recipe it was tolerable because I cooked the chicken in seasoning, but it was borderline. I'll be saving this one for some postpartum enjoyment. :)

  1. Thanks for the reviews, I did my 4th installment of Pinteresting Reviews this week. It's helpful to know if it's worth it or not
