Top Ten Favorite Pinterest Meals

pinterest meals

I have found more and more that I enjoy cooking for my family. There was a time, when the husband was in seminary, that these kids were lucky to get bread and water for dinner. I just couldn’t muster the umph to cook for them. Pinterest has really helped me come up with meal ideas. I like it much better than a bunch of cook books. I need to hurry up and make hard copies of all my favorite recipes.

Here are my top ten favorite meals that I found on Pinterest, cooked and were a hit in our house! Keep in mind that I have four kids, ages 8 and under… three of whom are excruciatingly picky eaters.

(In no particular order)

1. Loaded Baked Potato and Chicken Casserole

2. Doritos Cheesy Chicken Casserole

3. Crock Pot Orange Chicken

4. Taco Pockets

5. Garlic Chicken

6. Tater Tot Casserole

7. Pepperoni Pizza Bites

8. Honey Sesame Chicken (Crock Pot)

9. Taco Stuffed Shells

10. Key West Grilled Chicken

What meals have you tried from Pinterest that you’ve liked? Have you tried any that just turned out all wrong or really gross?
