Many people are on Pinterest, but just don't have time to use it. Or some people "pin" things to their boards but don't have time to go back in and actually do anything with them. Or some people may be too intimidated by Pinterest and have no idea how it works so they just stay away. Well, each month I will pick my top 3-5 favorite Pinterest picks and will post them here. They will all be things that I have tried on my own and like. I figure it might save others the time, and it also forces me to go in and check-off some on my list.
Here are my picks for January:
1. Magic Shower Cleaner
Instructions: Keep one in the shower filled with a mixture of half vinegar and half Dawn dish soap. Use it to wipe down the shower while you are in there and your shower will always be clean.
My comments: This is amazing. I saved this on my Pin board, but hadn't done it until my sister said how awesome it was. The next day I had to try it. It took away any hard water stains in our shower. This is one of those, "I wish I knew about this a long time ago" tricks that you come across. I keep it in the shower and do a quick swipe each time I am done showering.
2. Hawaiian Crockpot Chicken/Porkchops
Instructions: 4 - 6 chicken breasts, Hawaiian style BBQ sauce, can of crushed pineapple into a slow cooker for 6 hours on low.
My comments: I am always looking for something different to cook in the crockpot. I used porkchops instead of chicken. This was so easy, and yummy. I love anything that takes only 3 ingredients, easy to remember at the grocery store!
3. Baked Ravioli
Instructions: Heat oven to 400°F. Spray bottom and sides of a 9×13 rectangular baking dish with cooking spray. Spread 3/4 cup of the pasta sauce in baking dish. Arrange half of the frozen ravioli in a single layer over the sauce; top with half of the remaining pasta sauce and half of the mozzarella cheese. Repeat layers once, starting with ravioli. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove foil; bake uncovered for 10 to 15 minutes longer or until bubbly and hot in the center. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
My comments: This was another easy recipe. I don't have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen with two little kids running around while I am trying to prep. I am not a huge pasta fan, but I like it once in a while and ravioli is probably my favorite pasta dish. This even felt like lasagna with the layers.
Gotta get my Pinterest fill before the weather is nice again and I put it away for a few months. :)
