Chicken Pie with Biscuit Topping

I used to make a chicken pie with a Bisquick topping on it and it was always a so-so meal to use up leftover chicken. Then I watched Sandra Lee’s Semi- Homemade one day and saw her make her Chicken and Turkey Pot Pie with Pepper Biscuit Topping. It sounded much better then my recipe […]

50+ Spooky Halloween Recipes…from Pinterest!

It’s now officially October and I no longer have to feel ashamed of obsessing over my October 31 costume or listening to the Nightmare Before Christmas soundtrack on loop. Oh, who are we kidding. I wasn’t ashamed of those things before! :-p Seriously, though, I’ve been pinning recipes and other Halloween projects in anticipation of […]

Pinter-MESS: Lemon Brownies That Went From Bad To Worse

As we’ve learned here at The PinterTest Kitchen before, sometimes a recipe turns out to be a huge Pinter-Mess regardless of how good it sounds or looks. Remember my chocolate and caramel microwave mug cake? or Allison’s nasty jello cookies? Those both were just plain bad. Back when our Mom first signed-up for Pinterest, I […]

Restaurant-Style Queso

I love a good copycat recipe. Whenever I go out to eat at a Mexican restaurant, I love ordering the queso. Does anyone out there not love a big bowl of gooey melted cheese? Okay, well our grandmother doesn’t love a big bowl of gooey melted cheese. She doesn’t like cheese at all. She’s weird. […]

Chocolate Cream Cheese Surprise Cupcakes

No “pinspiration” today – this is a recipe straight from my childhood. Growing up, these chocolate cream cheese surprise cupcakes were one of my favorite treats. Forget any Tastykake or Hostess cupcake out there. These are like, ten times better than anything you can buy. Plus, there’s a secret surprise in the middle. Who doesn’t […]

Spanakopita – Greek Spinach Pie

When I lived in Pennsylvania, there was this cute little Greek restaurant less than a mile from my house, and my favorite dish there was the spanakopita, or spinach pie. Now that I live in Virginia, there’s a lack of really fantastic Greek food in my life, so I decided to seek out a spanakopita […]

Cold Crab Dip – Perfect for Parties

Sometimes, you need a quick recipe that holds up well as you travel to a party. When I find myself in that situation, my answer is often to bring a dip. Dips get better as the ingredients meld together, and they’re definitely crowd-pleasers. Oh, and did I mention how gosh darn easy they are? Love […]

Red Velvet Thumbprint Cookies

I love red velvet. I love cookies. Oh and did I mention I love white chocolate too? This recipe for red velvet thumbprints seemed like an obvious choice to test out. Plus it’s not your normal, everyday chocolate chip cookie. It’s something that’s a little different and out of the ordinary. The best part is […]

Calico Beans

The Calico Bean recipe is another good recipe out of a local organizations cookbook. These local cookbooks are some of best resources for recipes. Everyone likes to submit their best recipes to those cookbooks. I go to them quite often. The Calico Bean recipe is from the Klingerstown Fire Company Auxiliary cookbook. A note from […]

What to do When a Recipe Stinks (or You Set the Kitchen on Fire)?

A few weeks ago, I had this craving for cheesecake. I’ve made a few cheesecake recipes in the past, but I wanted to Pinter-Test a new recipe so I could post about it on this blog. The result was such a disaster that it’s not even worth a PinterMESS post. I wouldn’t share this recipe […]

Light Peach Pie

When peaches are in season, this Light Peach Pie recipe is refreshing and easy to make. I pinned a version of this recipe from Danielle Kronmuller, who pinned it from Taste of Home. The original recipe is for a light strawberry pie which I’ve also made before, but I just happened to have some fresh […]

Crock Pot Wine Chicken

You may have realized by now that we like wine here at the PinterTest Kitchen. Whether it’s using that wine in recipes, like this Sunshine Cake, or just drinking it on the side, there’s almost always a cork being popped in the evenings at one or the other Boyer residence. So when I saw this […]

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cake Mix Brownies

I’m a fan of easy cake mix recipes, since I’m not as good of a baker as Jess and our Mom (Sharon). Everyone I know loves the Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies our family makes, and the Chocolate Pumpkin Muffins I made a few months ago were a big hit. But there’s always room in the […]

Cute Band Aid Get Well Card

A few weeks ago, our cousin took a nasty spill at work and ended up in the hospital. It’s always a scary situation when a bump on the head is involved, but luckily he was discharged after a few days with only bruises and a lost tooth. Since I live in Virgina and he lives […]

Garlic Brussel Sprouts

Brussel sprouts are a treat when made this way .No, really! I know your first thought is YUK. And mine was too, but give them a try! They may surprise you! This recipe is easy and doesn’t take a lot of time. The farmers market that I go to usually has brussel sprouts all year […]

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, […]
