Breaded Lamb with Brown Butter Sauce (Or, How Lamb is Not Like Sour Cream)

I have a confession, dear readers: I don’t like lamb. I know, I know. Crucify me if you will! Here, have my food blogger badge and my food lover badge and my sane person badge. But I’ve given lamb a fair shake, I promise. Every time I try it, I think, “Maybe this time my […]

Spinach Bacon Carbonara

I seriously never get sick of carbonara. This dish is not great for the diet, but it’s so good for the soul. There’s just something so right about the combination of the creamy egg sauce, the salty cheese, and the smokey bacon. I add spinach to mine so I get some veggies in there, and […]

My Easy Korean Beef Recipe

One recipe I see pop up on Pinterest again and again is Korean beef using ground beef. It’s always intrigued me, but I’ve never had Korean beef before, so I wasn’t really sure what it was supposed to taste like. I’m still not 100% sure what it’s supposed to taste like. But the version I […]

Oven Roasted Chicken and Potatoes

Sometimes, I buy groceries without a real plan. I know, I’m a rouge! And while I do make a list most of the time, so I’m prepared for the recipes I want to make in the upcoming week or two (especially now that we’re doing monthly meal plans), sometimes I just buy ingredients that speak […]

Garlic Rosemary Baked Salmon with Feta

The other day, I stopped by the grocery store for a few items…and ended up coming out with an entire cart. They were having amazing sales on items we use often, so no regrets! This actually happens more often than not, causing my boyfriend to shake his head and laugh. What can I say? I […]

Stuffed Summer Squash Boats

Okay, I’ll admit it. I originally pinned this recipe from Thyme for Cooking for stuffed zucchini because it looked pretty. But after I made it – YUM! This is definitely a winning recipe. The really great thing about this recipe is that you can customize it to your family’s tastes. Add some pepperonis and you […]

Honey Lime Sriracha Grilled Chicken

From the end of April until the beginning of October, our grill doesn’t get much rest. We love cookouts with friends or even just grilling up some dinner for the two of us. And one of my favorite dishes is grilled chicken. I really love chicken in general, actually. (Try this OMG Sour Cream Chicken […]

Quirky, Crunchy Cheez-It Chicken

Ready for what is possibly the easiest quirky dinner recipe ever? I bring you…. Cheese Nib Chicken! Do not adjust your screen. It really is that unnaturally bright orange color. One of the recipes I make most often is OMG Sour Cream Chicken, but I have to admit, it gets a little boring sometimes. I […]

Rustic Beef Stew with Red Wine

We’re on a red wine kick here at The PinterTest Kitchen. Last week, I posted a sweet red wine cupcake recipe, but I wanted to share another great red wine recipe in case you had some wine left over that you needed to use. Hahahaha…just kidding. Like there’s ever be wine left over. What does […]

Thin Crust Pizza

I tried out a new product called Flatout Light Italian Herb Flatbreads. The package says it has 90 calories, 9 grams of protein and 74% fewer net carbs than 2 slices of wheat bread. A lot of times products like this tend to taste like cardboard, so I was a skeptical. We first tried them […]

One Pot Chicken Tortellini Dinner

One pot to clean after making a delicious dinner? Sign me up! I make this one pot pasta recipe all the time, so I decided to test another one pot dinner from Pinterest – this time it’s for chicken and tortellini. You use the whole chicken, which I love since sometimes our supermarket has whole […]

Parmesan Crusted Fish

This recipe is a real winner. If you’re on a budget, seafood can seem out of reach, but with this recipe you can purchase the cheaper types of fish and still get a tasty meal. For this recipe, I used swai, which is a kind of fish from Asia that is similar to U.S. farmed […]

Oven Baked Tacos

Who doesn’t love tacos? And sure, you can go to your local fast food chain to great a $1 taco, but who knows what you’re going to get? You can make ’em at home for even less money, and you know the ingredients. No filler or horse meat here! These oven baked tacos that I […]

Sesame Steak Stir-Fry

Today, I have the quickest and most versatile recipe EVER for you…and it’s so easy that even my boyfriend can make it! He tries, bless his heart, but we’re both usually safer when he is at the table waiting for dinner instead of in the kitchen cooking it. So earlier this month, when I was […]

Citrus Rosemary Baked Chicken

When I was a kid, the local volunteer fire department would sell BBQ chicken once a year as a fundraiser. They’d make it over this giant outdoor fire pit, so it would have that charred, smokey flavor. Thus, my love affair with chicken legs began. I remember being so excited when it was BBQ day, […]

Feast of the Seven Fishes Recipes

Our family isn’t Italian, nor are with Catholic, but I absolutely love the Feast of the Seven Fishes tradition. I was first introduced to this through my ex-boyfriend’s mother, who is both Italian and Catholic. In their culture, you eat copious amounts of seafood on Christmas Eve. According to Wikipedia, “the traditional Biblical number for […]
