Pinned, Did, Done 3/29

Extreme Cookies and Cream Oreo Cake (pin) I made this for Scott's birthday in November. I liked it a lot but would probably take the frosting and the cookie part and use a boxed mix next time. It's just easier and you're guaranteed a moist cake.

5-Ingredient Tomato Butter Sauce (pin) I've made this several times in the last few months. I use a can of crushed tomatoes. Very tasty and leftovers keep well in the fridge. We put it over zoodles and use lots of breadcrumbs.

Addictive Spiced Nuts (pin)
 Unbelievably tasty. Good thing nuts are expensive or I would make these all the time.

Healthy No-Bake Chocolate Cookies (pin) These taste like health food. I mean, it's not a bad taste but it's like eating a bowl of oatmeal (and that's saying something because my sweet tooth is not nearly as intense as it used to be.)

Greek Quinoa Bowls (pin) An easy dinner. You could add chicken to make it more filling but I thought it was good on its own. I roasted the chickpeas first.

45 Minute Cinnamon Rolls (pin) Very good! Easy and do-able too! Especially for someone like me who doesn't mess with yeast that much.

Broccoli Cheddar Soup (pin) This was okay. I wasn't overly impressed, but it worked as a decent dinner.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Mug Cake (pin) I've made these twice in the last week because Scott often requests dessert. It's good. I like crispy and chewy cookies and this is not like that but it serves its purpose and is a good one as far as mug cakes go.

What have you pinned (and done) lately?

Linking up with Jenn!


  1. You just had me pin 3 more things. I want to try that quinoa for sure & totally trying that peanut butter mug yummy!!!

  2. I keep forgetting to make the Tomato Butter Sauce, but it sounds like it's a hit, so maybe next week I will finally get around to it!

  3. Fun post! I'm going to have to try some of these so thanks for sharing! xo

  4. No-bake cookies are interesting to me and you're right they taste more like a health food.

    1. REAL no-bake cookies are the opposite of healthy. That's why they're good.

  5. i do a lot of card making and DIY things from pinterest; many have been successful.

  6. Ohh I want to try those spiced nuts! Yum!

  7. I barely use Pinterest for anything anymore. I used to use it all the time and had many successes.

  8. Ohh spiced nuts sounds so good! Off to pin..

  9. I love Pinterest. Most of our meals are recipes I've pinned. I usually have pretty good luck too.

  10. Pinterest is where I find most of my recipes! I made a sheet pan dinner last night found on Pinterest.
