for this edition of the pin approved series, i am focusing on recipes! pinterest is my number one go-to spot for dinner time inspiration. i've tried quite a few new dishes lately. here are some of my favorites:
panera broccoli cheese soup
this soup tastes exactly like panera's version. it takes about an hour from start to finish, but it's so worth it. reheats very well (actually better the second day). i skipped the step about putting it in the blender. just make sure you chop the broccoli finely and it will be perfect!
if you are looking for a simple, basic banana bread recipe, look no further. mine turned out moist, flavorful and delicious! and, to save you a step, i just threw all the dry ingredients into the wet and mixed them together in one bowl. less dishes!
this soup was pretty good. it had three "steps" so it wasn't the easiest crock pot recipe, but still a warm and hearty meal. i skipped the step of blending the beans with the broth, so i don't know if that really changes the consistency of the soup a lot. the parmesan cheese on the top adds a great flavor! if you are a vegetarian, this is the soup for you!
i'm not one to make brownies from scratch; i'm usually a "box" girl. but i had all the ingredients to make these this week, so i gave it a shot. they were delicious! moist, crunchy "crust" and gooey center. i halved this recipe to make an 8 x 8 pan.
have you tried any recipes from pinterest lately? any winners?
