Pinterest entrees and side dishes we tested.

Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Disclaimer: I am not the biggest fan of sweet potatoes. I have an especially adverse reaction to the stick gooey that people drizzle over tip. Yuck. So when my roommate, Leighann, said she was trying a new sweet potato recipe for Thanksgiving instead of making regular white potatoes, I was a little bummed But to […]

Sesame Bacon-Wrapped Asparagus

I have a confession to make: I really don’t like to eat my vegetables. I don’t mind some raw veggies to much on for a snack or even a salad as a meal, but when it comes to cooked veggies…blech. Peas, broccoli, green beans…yuck, yuck, yuck. I don’t even really liked cooked carrots or corn […]

Mild Stuffed Peppers

When I was a young girl I enjoyed collecting recipes and I still do. I subscribed to the Betty Crocker Recipe Card Library. Each month a new package of about 24 recipe cards would come. That was in the early ’70s. The stuffed Green Pepper recipe comes from that box of recipes. Stuffed Green Peppers […]

Crisp and Creamy Fillo Chicken Packets

I absolutely love fillo dough. As you may remember, I used it in the spanakopita recipe we tried a few weeks ago, and today we’re using it in a similar technique to make crispy, buttery, creamy, perfect fillo chicken packets. They’re like little gifts on your plate. This recipe isn’t one I learned from Pinterest. […]

Cold Spinach Artichoke Dip

Now that we’re knee-deep in football season (and baseball season for that matter), I wanted to share another great dip recipe to serve at your next tailgate or game day party. Even if it’s just you vegging in front of the couch watching the game by yourself, this Spinach Artichoke Dip makes it a party! […]

French Cheeseburger Loaf

This French Cheeseburger Loaf almost turned out to be a Pinter-Mess. Thank goodness my daughter Jessica was in the kitchen with me. An extra pair of hands helped me save it from being an absolute diaster. I found this recipe on Taste of Home’s website and pinned it to test out. This recipe is ok, […]

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 […]

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. […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]
