Pinterest Recipes I've Tried & Loved

Last night, I officially added a new dish into our regular rotation, after making it last night for the second week in a row. I found it on Pinterest a while back, and made it for Angie and I last week for our healthy girls' night dinner, and we both loved it. So I decided I needed to make it again last night for my husband on Meatless Monday, and he loved it too! So then this morning, I was inspired by Lauren's blog post where she shared some of her favorite Pinterest recipes. So I thought I'd do the same today.

Last night's delicious Mexican Quinoa, and also the picture I used for yesterday's photo-a-day prompt, "close."

Most of my Pinterest boards are food boards, because that's what I use it for the most. Of course I have some design and craft boards, as well as a few others, but the first like 15 or so are all different categories of foods! I like to keep it pretty specific so it's easier to find something when I'm craving something specific, or feel like making a casserole that day instead of soup or sandwiches. So for that, they all have their own board.

Well anyways, lets get to the recipe sharing!

One Pan Mexican Quinoa*
Crab Salad**
Ratatouille's Ratatouille
Slow-Cooker Lasagna Soup
Creamy Crockpot Chicken & Broccoli Over Rice
Loaded Mashed Potato Bake
Oven-Baked Chicken Fajitas 
Pepperoni Pizza Pasta Casserole

*The Mexican quinoa is what I made last night, and it's just sooo easy and yummy.
**I didn't use the radish in this, and it was still delicious. I also added in just a tiny bit of chopped up "tamed" jalapenos.

Lately I've been attempting to try a new recipe at least once a week, in order to add some variety into our usually super simple meal plan. So when I found ones that we love, we can add them in to the normal rotation. The ones I shared above are definitely some of our favorites (well I'm the crab stuff was just for me, Jeff doesn't like the 'imitation' crab...), and they definitely get repeated.

What are some of YOUR favorite Pinterest recipes you've tried? (The easier ones guys, not the ones that require hours of work and a bajillion ingredients please...) I'd love to hear what other people have already tested out and loved too!

I've made that lasagna soup too. So good! My favorite that I've made is crockpot loaded baked potato soup.
