Things I've Made Thanks to Pinterest

I'm sure many of you love getting inspiration from Pinterest like I do. It's fun seeing ideas shared by friends and adding to a wish list of items that I want to make. Usually at night after the kids are in bed I like to take a quick look at what my friends have pinned that day.

I decided to start a "Things I've Made Thanks to Pinterest" board so that I can keep track of what I've have actually accomplished thanks to time searching on the addictive site.

Here are a few of my Pinterest favorites that I've made.

Last week, I made this Mediterranean Dip twice. I loved the combo of pesto, hummus and feta. I think more of this will be made again soon.

I made this Mozzarella, Tomato, Avocado Salad as a side dish for Thanksgiving dinner. Nothing was left in the bowl.

These Taco Cupcakes have been a hit at our house. My kids request these almost every time I ask for dinner suggestions. I like to top them with my fresh salsa and diced up avocado.

Homemade enchiladas are a comfort food to me and I love making them. This White Chicken Enchilada Recipe is simple and delicious.

Refried beans from a can are not on of my favorite foods, but homemade beans are a different story. These Crock Pot Refried Beans are easy and healthy because they aren't actually fried.

Have you noticed that almost everything I've made with Pinterest inspiration is food?  Not sure what that means, but I am happy that we've been trying out new recipes at our house.

My Pinterest inspiration isn't exclusively food related because I did use this idea of putting a gift card in a jar a few months ago to give a Target gift card to one of my daughter's friends. You can see how my homemade snow globe turned out here.

How about you? Are you on Pinterest? Do you make things base on inspiration you find there?
