Pinterest Recipes That Rock

The girls and I have been cooking up a storm in the kitchen lately. We love trying new recipes and tweaking flavors to our own liking. Please tell me y’all do that too? Like switching out flavors or adding less sugar to something for a healthier version. It’s definitely my cooking style and keeps things interesting in the kitchen (Full disclosure: It doesn’t always come out delicious so be careful with your ingredients:)

When I get tired of cooking the same-ole-thing, I turn to cooking shows or…surprise…Pinterest. A great resource for all things creative, Pinterest has the best food porn. If you like trying new recipes, here are a few pinterest recipes that rock.

Sweet Potato Toast (3 ways)

Who knew sweet potato’s would be a healthy swap-out for bread?!? All three of these are so delicious and filling! My girls love the banana/almond butter combo.

What you’ll need:

  • Organic, washed sweet potato

For option 1:

  • 1 Almond butter
  • 1 Banana, slices
  • Cinnamon sprinkle

For option 2:

  • 1 Avocado
  • Himalayan Pink Salt & Pepper
  • 1 Lemon, zest

For option 3:

  • 1/2 cup Canned tuna, drained
  • Mayonnaise
  • Relish
  • 1/4 Red onion, sliced
Preparation:
  • Slice up the washed sweet potato  1/4 inch thick, long ways. Pop the pieces of sweet potato in a toaster oven for two cycles (it might take a few tries depending on your toaster setting and how you like your toast. Basically you want the SP slice to be soft and lightly browned.)
  • Once you’ve gotten your SP cooked to your liking, add whatever you want.

Dutch Chocolate Pancake

The perfect Saturday morning breakfast. It’s easy, delicious and the whole family will enjoy it. I switched out the cocoa powder with hot chocolate mix and added less sugar. Pretty solid!!

What you’ll need:

  • 4 Eggs, large
  • 1 Berries and syrup, Fresh
  • 6 tbsp All-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp Coarse or kosher salt
  • 3 tbsp Cocoa powder, unsweetened
  • 1 Dark chocolate and powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp Sugar
  • tbsp Butter, unsalted
  • 1/2 cup Milk
Preparation:
  • Heat oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Whisk eggs, sugar and salt in the bottom of a medium bowl. Add flour and cocoa, whisking until mostly smooth (some tiny lumps are okay, but whisk out what you can). Drizzle in milk, whisking the whole time.
  • Heat a 12-inch ovenproof skillet on the stove over high heat. Add butter and melt, tipping the pan around so it butters the sides too. Turn heat off and scrape batter into pan. Transfer skillet to oven and bake for 16 to 18 minutes, until pancake is billowy.
  • Remove from oven and grate chocolate over, to taste. Dust generously with powdered sugar. Cut in halves or quarters and eat with berries and syrup, if desired.

Have fun in the kitchen:)
