Trying Recipes From Pinterest


This is a recipe from Pinterest in my “Sweet Tooth” board.

It is called 2 ingredient pumpkin brownies.

Here are the 2 ingredients.

This is what they ended up looking like.

I did not like these at all.

They are very moist, but the taste is not good!

I am going to try to sample some of these great and not so great recipes that I have found on Pinterest and let you know what I think.

Have you tried very many recipes from Pinterest?

Slow-Cooker Conversion


I don’t know about you all, but I have used my slow-cooker (crock pot) a lot lately.

 

I have found some great recipes on Pinterest.

But there are a bunch of recipes that I would like to try that are made for the oven.

 

 

Lucky for us I found this “Slow-Cooker Conversion Chart” in an old issue of Paula Dean Magazine.

 

Recipes for large cuts of meat, casseroles, soups, and stews are all terrific for slow cooking.

The main thing is to reduce the liquid to about 1/2 cup unless the recipe contains rice, beans, or pasta.

To figure the cooking time, use this guideline: 

 

~15 to 30 minutes conventional cooking time = 4 to 6 hours on LOW or 1 1/2  to 2 1/2 hours on HIGH.

 

~35 to 45 minutes conventional cooking time – 6 to 8 hours on LOW or 3 to 4 hours on HIGH.

 

Cook combinations of  raw meat and vegetables for at least 6 to 8 hours on LOW to give the flavors time to blend. 

 

I hope this helps you.

I am so very happy to have found this!

Oreo Pudding


This is what I call Oreo pudding.

It is delicious.

This is what the inside looks like.

It has crushed Oreos on the bottom, a cream cheese layer, then pudding, and to top it all off whipped topping.

I found this recipe on Pinterest.

It came from www.house344.com.

1 regular package of Oreos

1/2  c. of butter

1 lg box of instant chocolate pudding
 
2-8 oz cool whips
 
8 oz. of cream cheese, softened
 
1 c. powdered sugar
 
Crush the package of cookies either with a food processor, or in a bag and a rolling-pin.  Save a 1/2 c. to sprinkle on top of dessert when it’s done.  Pour remaining crumbs in a 13×9 pan.  Melt butter and pour into crumb mix.  Stir it up good and press crumbs in bottom of pan to make a crust.  Make chocolate pudding according to package directions and let it setup in the fridge.  In a mixing bowl blend cream cheese until nice and smooth and then add powdered sugar, mix.  Then fold in 1-8 oz thing of cool whip.  Top Oreo layer with cream cheese mix, then pudding, then your last 8 oz thing of cool whip, and then sprinkle remaining Oreo’s on top.  Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve. 
 
You will make this over and over, it’s that good!
