pinterest recipes. installment one.

i am not even gonna lie. pinterest has my heart. i love this site and am not ashamed to admit it.
i have gotten countless ideas, recipes, crafts, etc from pinterest and all make me look like i actually kinda of have it together sometimes!

two recipes that we have tried in the last week that are full of win were a pork tenderloin and an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie. so yum!

i stumbled across this little gem and the picture sold me on it! it looked amazing. 
i am guilty of that whole judge a book by it's cover thing. the picture looked gorgeous so i pinned. then i went back and looked at the recipe itself and hello?!?! super easy and quick. what i need these days. see having a toddler. 
we changed up the recipe a bit and added a shot of bourbon (one of those days) and grilled it instead of put it in the oven. 
it was so good and we had leftovers that turned into taco night. even more delish!

i am always looking for new things to bake and i found this little gem one day on smitten kitchen, which by the way is an amazing website! go there after you read this! you won't regret it. 
oatmeal chocolate chip and pecan cookies have to be one of the best cookies i have tried in awhile. easy to make, simple ingredients, and a that recipe makes a descent portion, i have stashed this away in my recipe file. 
i have made them twice in two weeks, they are that good! i changed up the recipe on this, too. i omitted nutmeg because i'm not a fan of the flavor and cut back on the orange zest. (i read some comments that said it could be too strong)
i know everyone has caught on to the interest phenomenon and is pinning left and right. if you haven't you live under a rock! is there a recipe you have tried that is a must? something that was a total fail? let me know! i'm always looking for new things to try.
