Pinned.Did.Done (S&T 5/11)

Garlic Parmesan Halibut.  This was the first way we ever had halibut in Alaska. It's not healthy but it's tasty. I made it a few weeks ago when Scott came home with halibut from Costco.

Baked Peanut Butter Cup Oatmeal.  This was good. Out of all the baked oatmeals I've made, I'd go with this.

One-Pan Sausage and Veggies. LOVED this. I'll probably make it often from here on out. Scott despises chicken sausage but I find it solves my problem of "need more protein" in a very practical way. Regular chicken gets old pretty quickly.

Vegetarian Chow Mein. I don't even remember if I tried this. I made it. Scott loved it. Something about it didn't appeal to me though once it was done.

Chili Lime Shrimp Tacos. I just did the shrimp part, and didn't make them into tacos. It was fine. I'm always looking for new ways to cook shrimp but, like any red-blooded American, I prefer my shrimp deep-fried and breaded.

Baked Pesto Chicken. Easy and quick. And i usually have these ingredients on hand.

Asparagus, Tomato, and Feta Salad. Tasty enough to repeat. I made it a month ago and I made it this week. VERY good.

Cilantro-Lime Black Bean and Shrimp and Rice. This was good. I ate around the shrimp because I really think I have an aversion to seafood sometimes but the rice was tasty.

One Bowl Vegan Chocolate Cake. THIS WAS SO GOOD. I don't know why anyone would ever make a "regular" chocolate cake after they try this one. It stayed moist in the fridge for days. I didn't make the icing vegan because seriously now...but I would do a peanut butter icing next time. This will be my go to whenever I need a chocolate cake from here on out.

Coffee Cake Doughnuts. These were really good. After days on end of The Great British Baking Show* I wanted to make doughnuts. I dug out that doughnut pan I just had to have five years ago...I've used it three times now in five years...and went to work. We ate them all in one day.

Alright. That's what I've Pinned and Done in the last month or so.

What's your favorite Pinterest recipe lately???

*The Great British Bake-Off is the name of the show as it airs in the U.K. In America, it's called The Great British Baking Show because Pillsbury (makers of all things processed) has trademarked the term "bake-off", and therefore it cannot be used on a t.v. show (be it on PBS or Netflix) that Pillsbury does not own. Gag, right?


  1. Awesome! Can't wait to check out these recipes! Baked Pesto Chicken sounds like something both my husband and I would enjoy!

  2. That chocolate cake sounds absolutely amazing!!! I'm going to bookmark a few of these recipes. Thanks for sharing! :)

  3. Going to have to try the vegetarian chow mein.

  4. I'm intrigued by the vegan chocolate cake but never have or want to have almond milk on hand.

  5. oh my gosh yes, regular chicken gets old so fast. KC hates sausage in any form so we never have it. but i love chicken sausage. i prefer it over normal chicken.
    did not know that about Pillsbury and the british show. How ridiculous lol

  6. I would like to try all of these! Yum! Thanks for scouring Pinterest for me haha.

  7. That asparagus/tomato/feta salad looks right up my alley.

    Lately I've just been making a lot of easy recipes with chicken because it's the easiest way for me to get protein without resorting to protein shakes. I've been making a lot of pizza lately...bbq chicken, pesto chicken, hawaiian...

  8. The Pilsbury thing is just stupid. I did wonder about the strange rebranding! Oh and I have the same thing with shrimp as you - sometimes I have cravings, but usually the thought makes me feel a bit funny. I think I've had too many encounters with improperly prepared shrimp in places that should know better eg actual restaurants...


Comments make my day!
