Over the past few weeks we have made some great recipes off Pinterest. I pin so many dishes, and it is always good to hear feedback from those who have already tried to make it, so that you know if a recipe is worth buying ingredients for and making. So, today I thought I would share our recent Pinterest recipe successes with you.
This Balsamic Beef recipe was easy and YUMMY! Rick was at home on the day I made it and for the last 3 hours of cooking the smell was driving him crazy. The addition of Red Pepper flakes in the recipe gives it a bit more bite than any of the other Balsamic meat dishes I have made before. If you love Balsamic, give this one a try. And, if you happen to have any Balsamic glaze on hand, try drizzling it over the meat before serving, it adds a burst of rich flavor and the perfect finishing touch.
We made this Vanilla Swirl Bread one lazy Sunday afternoon. It was so yummy. The vanilla was not overpowering, and gave it a really nice, sweet touch to the loaf. I adjusted the recipe by adding a wee bit of Vanilla paste to the dough so that I would get a little bit of the vanilla bean flecking throughout the bread. Then, after rolling out the dough and before adding the milk and sugar, I spread more vanilla paste onto it. I think that without the extra vanilla paste, it would have been hard to taste the vanilla. It would have simply been a sweet bread.
Finally, I made this desert during the holidays. I have made a plain version of it before, but the mint was a refreshing touch and was well liked by all who ate it.
So, have you had any recent recipe successes from Pinterest lately? If so, please share them in the comments.
