8 Great Recipe Ideas!

I've been a little obsessed with recipe pinning and hoarding lately; not sure why, I'm a horrible cook. I think it's just the idea of eating it that makes me happy, lol. Cason on the other hand is AMAZING and actually loves being in the kitchen trying new things. So in reality, it's sort of me gather recipe ideas for HIM to hopefully make ME one day. haha!

Some of these are oldies but goodies, and some are new, so I thought I'd share them with you, because a bunch looked really yummy, and others were just super cute!

Tell me this isn't such a cute and creative idea! Don't know why I haven't thought of it before! Of course the Dating Diva's made their message sassy and flirty for that special guy (love that!), but I was thinking of using our favorite Buttermilk Pancake recipe and doing something fun for birthdays! Balloons, a number, etc...

I could pretty much live off of Mexican food. Okay, mainly the chips and salsa part of Mexican food. I've actually made this salsa and it's AWESOME! I varied the spiciness for the kids and then for me and Cason (who like it hot)... that sounds weird... and either way, it's just really yummy and super flavorful!

I really want to try this recipe, because instead of the standard spices, this potato salad calls for Montreal Steak seasoning. Go figure! I bet it's really good, and gives a lot of different elements of flavor.

This reminded me of our Creamy Strawberry Coolers we made for a recent Homes.com post. Watermelons were dirt cheap last week, because they're going out of season, so I snagged one to try this idea.

Alright so really, the staging of this adorable cupcake brought me in; it's so pretty! But I am thinking that strawberry cupcakes would be perfect for Aubrie's birthday, because strawberries are her favorite, and that pink frosting with sprinkles?... I love it!

I know, again with the Mexican food, but I really DO love it! The Six Sisters Stuff is one of my favorite cookbooks and these pork carnitas look easy and reaaaally yummy! 

Cassity made this whole wheat chocolate brownie with only 5 ingredients. I think that's all that needs to be said. Genius! Can't wait to try them.

Alright, this is probably more up my "everyday clean eating" ally. Lots of greens and healthy veggies with lean protein. Jen shares her homemade vinaigrette recipe with this too. It's awesome! 


  1. Yum! They all look amazing, especially those strawberry cupcakes. Can't wait to try some of them.

  2. So glad you like the salsa Shelley! We are salsa snobs and can't live without the homemade version!
