Pinterest Recipes I've Actually Tried Part 2

You can click here for part one. Since Pinterest has updated the images no longer show, but the links will take you through to the pins/recipes. 

Spinach Cubes
These are great for anyone out there making green smoothies. It's a very good way to preserve spinach if you buy a whole bag but don't usually use it all before it goes bad. 

Lemon and Spice Grilled Shrimp

I made these this past weekend and they came out REALLY tasty. It was too hot to actually stand outside at our grill, so I used our George Foreman grill indoors, but they'd probably be even better put on an actual grill. 

Chicken with Peanut Sauce and Sweet Potatoes 

This wasn't very much of a win. It didn't have enough flavor for me, and the sweet potatoes came out too mushy for my liking. I don't think I'll be going back to this one again. 

Salt and Vinegar Sweet Potato Chips

These were amazing. So good and good for you. Baked in the oven, not fried, NO OIL.  I have a mandolin slicer which allowed me to easily cut the potatoes thinly and evenly and they were super crisp and tasty. I'm going to start experimenting with all kinds of chips. 

Sausage and Potatoes 

This was really good, but it took FOREVER to make. The potatoes took a very long time cooking on the stove top. I think next time I'll roast the potatoes a little first in the oven, then put them in the skillet to cut down on cook time. 

4-Ingredient Peanut Chicken Ramen

I should have known better. I should have known this was too good to be true. This came out WAY too salty. It was just salty peanut butter noodles. I'll have to work on finding another quick peanut noodle recipe.
