Pinned It & Made It

Its been a little while since I've posted my Pinterest trials.  I wanted to do one before our vacation but it just didn't happen.  And life just hasn't slowed down enough to blog.  So here they are, there's a lot!

Pinned ImageYummy French Toast recipe.  It really is the best.  The ratings are all 5 stars.  I've made it several times now and it is always super good.  One of my favorite things to make now.  I always use french bread, I just buy a loaf from dillions.  Its fantastic!

Pinned ImagePancakes!  I love pancakes but Adam is not a fan, he prefers waffles.  But this recipe was so good.  It was kinda sweet.  I didn't follow the directions very well, the batter is suppose to be made the night before so it wasn't thick enough to use immediately.  But since we had no other plans for dinner I went ahead and used it.  It made for very thin pancakes but they were seriously so GOOD!  Because the batter was so thin I went ahead and used it for waffles as well, they also turned out great.  So everyone in our family was happy!

Pinned ImageOne idea I found on Pinterest was to bake bacon in the oven.  It worked out so much better then cooking it in the skillet.  It was just as good and so much faster and easier.  It worked out nicely to do french toast on the stove and bacon in the oven.  Plus the house wasn't as bacon smelly as it usually is.

I've heard of this before but just never tried it.  I'm glad I did and will probably always cook (turkey) bacon in the oven from now on.

Pinned ImageHomemade Hamburger Buns.  One day I needed hamburger buns but forgot to buy them at the store.  The thought of having to go to the store with all 4 kids just seemed too much so I decided to give it a try and make some myself.  This is a super easy recipe and only takes 40 minutes to make!  They were awesome.

Pinned ImageChickFilA knock off chicken nuggets.  I made these last week for dinner, I think they were one of the best things I've ever made before.  I couldn't have fryed 100lbs of chicken and we would have still been devastated to see them all be gone.

Its a must try recipe, you won't regret it.  

Pinned ImageCreamy Garlic Pasta.   This is really good and super easy to make.  It had a stronger garlic flavor the next day.  Its also very cheesy and flavorful for being a simple pasta.

Pinned ImageSweet & Spicy Cucumber Slices.  I made this I think for Father's day and they were really good.  I'll admit I chickened out and didn't put the spice in them.  I'm a whimp.

Pinned ImageAnt Repellant.  We always have a problem every year with ants.  They get so bad I start to go a little crazy.  So I decided to give this a try and it works!  It doesn't take very much.  I mixed up one batch and just keep it in a jar i the kitchen.  When I see a few ants I pour a little out in a little bowl and within a few days they are all gone.
