Wait! I have that! I can make it now!

This past week was pretty exciting in our household but not because Miss M. finally became a first grader.  No, the real reason is because I was able to not once, but twice make a recipe with items I had on hand.  There was absolutely no pre-planning.

First up, sloppy joes.  I usually make my mother-in-law’s recipe which is awesome and tasty but realized too late that I didn’t have a required ingredient (dijon mustard).  Enter pinterest.  I entered “sloppy joes” into their search engjne and this is what appeared:

A lovely and tasty sloppy joe recipe that did not require mustard.  The best part is that I had all the things that it did require!  Win!  Click on the picture for the recipe.
Next up, cookies.  On Sunday, Miss M and family were invited to a picnic and there was to be a cake walk.  In order to participate you were asked to bring a baked good.  I had some yellow cake mix and some chocolate chips.  Pinterest yet again saved the day and Cake Batter Cookies were found: 
Click on picture for recipe.  They were so tasty that the extras that I laid out for the community potluck were gone in a matter of minutes!  The best part?  One lady almost accosted me for the recipe!
Success in the kitchen times two with the help of my secret weapon, Pinterest.
