YOU GUYS! I love food… so much. So naturally, this time of year is my favorite. It’s dangerous, I know. You know what’s even more dangerous? Pinterest. Yeah, it’s one of my biggest weaknesses, for sure. Pinning new recipes is one of my favorite things to do.
So, today I thought I would share a few of my latest pins that I can’t wait to try. I’ve linked the recipes, so if you try any of them before me, please let me know how they turn out! Happy cooking (and eating)!
Guacamole Shrimp Wonton Cups
Um, everything about this sounds (and looks) amazing to me. First of all, I love guac. My favorite place to get fresh, homemade at the table guac is Cantina 1511 in Charlotte. If you haven’t tried it… you’re missing out. Anyway, these little cuties look like they would make darling appetizers.
Spinach and Cheese Stuffed Shells (only… not)
I love spinach and cheese stuffed shells, but I’ve actually been wanting to try this recipe with my own spinach and artichoke dip (see recipe at the end of this post). I think it would be amazing, but I’m not sure how it would change the cooking time dynamics. If I get brave enough to actually give this a try, I’ll let you know!
Zuppa Toscana Soup
If I could go to Olive Garden and get unlimited soup, salad, and bread sticks every day… I would. There’s something so comforting about the buttery goodness of the soup and bread sticks paired with the fresh tangy salad that I just love. This copycat recipe has been on my “to try” list for quite a while, and my goal is to make it before Christmas. It sounds extra good because it has… drumroll please… bacon! YUM!
I love oreos, I love fudge, and besides… fudge is like a trademark of this time of year. Some of my best childhood memories are watching my grandma slice her cookie sheets of home made “candy,” and I wish I had learned her recipes. This just looks so good, I can’t wait to give it a try.
