Homemade Pizza Rolls

Forget ever buying frozen pizza rolls EVER again. Once you make this recipe, you can’t go back to the store-bought pizza rolls. These are just so much better that the others taste like dirt in comparison! As you might have already realized, we love quick, easy, and cheap recipes here at The PinterTest Kitchen. So, […]

Strawberry Spinach Salad

Did you ever make a new recipe for your husband and he looked at it and said, “What the heck is that?” That’s what happened when I made this Strawberry Spinach Salad the first time. So I replied, ” Shut up and eat it.” My husband put some salad on his plate and soon he […]

Cheesy Sausage Pasta

The Cheesy Sausage Pasta is  a baked pasta dish that can be made to your tastes. I like to use the colored spiral pastas. This time I used Ronzoni Garden Delights Radiatore. They look like little corkscrews and they hold lots of sauce. My husband works at a meat market that makes their own fresh […]

Makes-You-Go-MMM Maple Mustard Chicken Thighs

I love easy “throw together” meals that take little prep time and are made with ingredients I usually have in my pantry/fridge. That’s exactly how I feel about this maple mustard chicken. The entire meal is inexpensive, quick to make, and best of all, really tasty. I originally pinned this this recipe from Shelley Roberts, […]

Pennsylvania Dutch Ham Loaf

Ham loaf is a Pennsylvania Dutch comfort food. Add a favorite side dish of  scalloped potatoes and some corn or green beans and you will get that warm fuzzy filling, at least in our area. This particular ham loaf recipe is a version from a local Himmel’s Church cookbook, submitted by Norma Kauffman.  Some church […]

Homemade Pad Thai

Y’all, I think have a new favorite recipe. This homemade Pad Thai recipe rocks. There’s an authentic Thai restaurant about three miles from my house, and I love going there to get Pad Thai. The only problem? It’s a little pricey. Other restaurants in my area may Pad Thai too, of course, but the vast […]

Allison’s Lick-Your-Plate Potato Salad

I’ve been looking for a good potato salad recipe for years. I’m picky about my potato salad. It has to be white, not yellow. It has to be chunky, not mushy. It has to have a bite, but not to much vinegar. Yes, I am hard to please. What I’ve found is that there really […]

Creamy Spicy Chicken Lasagna Rollups

I love chicken. I love pasta. I love cheese (oh how do I love cheese). So when I saw this recipe for Chicken and Cheese Lasagna Roll-Ups, originally from iVillage, I had to try it. Okay, I’ll admit it. I made a few changes to the original recipe. But I’m still hesitant to but this […]

Onion Roasted Potatoes

This recipe has been around for a long time. I’ve seen versions of it on the back of the dry onion soup mix box and in several recipe books. It’s simple and doesn’t take many ingredients. Sometimes that’s all we have time for. If your oven is on, this is an easy side dish to […]

Salmon Packets with Lemon Butter

I’m not a fan of salmon. It’s okay I guess. But I am a fan of really easy recipes that make almost no dishes dirty! So I just had to try these salmon pouch thingies, as pinned here. maybe this would be the recipe to change my mind about salmon! I originally saw them pinned […]

Super Simple Garlic Knots

I may be super picky (Allison’s note: that is a TOTAL understatement), but man do I love good garlic knots. Usually any good bread related recipe involves a lot of time waiting while the dough rises. But let’s be honest. While I’m perfectly fine baking a labor-intensive recipe, 9 times out of 10 I’m way […]
