Pinworthy Projects Party

Happy Friday! I hope you’ve had a great week. I started my week off by picking up and sorting 80 cases of Girl Scout cookies so I am happy to see the end of the week. I can almost see my living room floor too since most of our troop moms have picked up their cookies.

Before we get to this week’s party, let’s take a look at some of the great items linked up at the party last week. As always, we pin these {and others} to our Pinterest boards each week :)

Spinach Artichoke Lasagna Rolls

I am thrilled to bring you this recipe in partnership with Giant Peapod. While this content was sponsored, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Name one thing you dread in your weekly routine. For me, going grocery shopping quickly tops the list because of the complete hassle it can entail. Even with a detailed grocery list in hand, I can kiss an hour or more goodbye once I enter the store. We have a new au pair with us now and she is a vegetarian. I wanted to make spinach artichoke lasagna rolls for dinner but realized I was missing some key ingredients. Instead of heading out to the store with both kids in tow during a mild snowstorm, I instead decided to try something new to get the supplies for my recipe.

Spinach artichoke lasagna rolls are the perfect alternative to a regular ole lasagna dinner.

One Pot Pizza Rigatoni

There is a conversation that happens all the time in our house when it comes time for dinner. If I am running behind or just don’t feel like sticking to my meal plan, I’ll make the mistake and say “what do you all want for dinner?” The inevitable answer is pizza from one half and pasta from another half. Spaghetti was always our favorite weeknight meal as a kid and my mom needed to make something fast. So, to solve the problem in my household, I make one pot pizza rigatoni and meet in the middle.

One pot pizza rigatoni is the perfect easy meal that cooks fast and tastes amazing. It will solve your dinner problem any night.

Cookie Butter Brownie Sandwich Cookies

Yesterday was total silence around here but I had a really good excuse. {Isn’t what they always say?!} My amazing husband surprised me with a weekend trip to a bed and breakfast! Then, of course there was the Super Bowl. I had all the plans to write Monday’s post on Monday morning but I spent the entire day picking up, sorting and delivering Girl Scout cookies. Since I can’t bring you Girl Scout cookies, I have cookie butter brownie sandwich cookies instead. 

Two amazing fudge cookies with cookie butter sandwiched in between. This cookie recipe is to die for and makes the perfect decadent dessert.

Happy Friday! I can’t believe it is already February. 2016 is totally flying by and it feels like it just began. I am looking forward to all the things February brings: my birthday, the Super Bowl, Valentine’s Day and so much more. Bring on the chocolate!

You guys totally rocked it last week. I picked a few projects that caught my eye but everything was really amazing. I love seeing what everyone has been working on through our link party.

Green Tea Walnut Quick Bread

Growing up, there was always tea our house. My dad was an avid iced tea drinker and had tea with just about any meal. Both my grandparents work for Lipton tea so that was all we ever bought. Now, as an adult, I don’t drink tea nearly as much but I love enjoying a cup in the evening or using it in recipes like this green tea walnut quick bread.

Chocolate Coconut Snack Mix

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Sunsweet Growers. All opinions are 100% mine.

We are on the go pretty much all the time during the week. Between our normal work schedule and all of the children’s activities, we also have doctor appointments and a bunch of other appointments to get to. I always keep our pantry stocked with easy grab and go snacks that are delicious but easy to eat. A delicious chocolate coconut snack mix has become one of our new favorites.

Chocolate Coconut Snack Mix is the perfect on the go snack and is packed with protein to keep you fuller longer.

Thai Sweet Potato Nachos

I think sweet potatoes are generally one of those love or hate items. Before I did Whole30 the first time, I never used to eat them. Of course, they are way better for you than regular potatoes so they went into meal rotation a lot once I started doing Whole30 or trying to stick to a paleo diet. Mathlete, the sweet potato lover, was thrilled! For our our Big Game party, we will be serving Thai sweet potato nachos in place of the regular potato version.

Thai sweet potato nachos are full of flavor and a great alternative to the traditional potato variety.

Strawberry Marshmallow Heart Treats

I love spending time in the kitchen with my daughter. We are hosting the upcoming Brownie meeting and it is all about snacks. We are focusing on healthy snacks but I figure a sweet treat is also good to have so we can talk about enjoying sweets in moderation. Since our meeting lands on Valentine’s Day, I decided to make some strawberry marshmallow heart treats {think rice krispie style} for the meeting.

Easy Dinner Recipes Meal Plan

Oh my gosh…we are finally dug out of this massive snow storm. There is still snow everywhere but at least things are getting back to normal. I am literally counting down the hours until the kids go back to school so we can back into our routine. That also means I am looking forward to getting back to using our easy dinner recipes meal plan this week after not being able to get to the store last week to get most of the stuff I needed to stick to last week’s meal plan.
