I had a Pinterest Patriotic fest this weekend. I may pin a lot, but I also do
sometimes make things I pin. This round I made all things Patriotic for our Memorial Day BBQ. All recipes and links can be found on my 4th of July board here
I love all things jello. Must be something from my childhood. I improvised on the white filling than what the recipe called for. I added about 8 ounces of cream cheese to the cool whip, 1/4 c of white sugar and a dash of vanilla. Then I mixed it with my hand mixer until smooth and creamy.
I was on a roll making mini desserts.
Some of my mini cheesecakes caved in the middle so I added some cherry pie filling to the the top
I found that the lattice tops were harder to do on the apple pies, so I only did half that way
I also made fruit salsa, but I probably won’t make it again. The fruit gets all soggy and not so fresh looking very fast.
I really just wanted to try the new spoon maker kit I got to dip the salsa
I used the packaged uncooked flour tortillas to make them and then brushed them with butter and sprinkled them with cinnamon and sugar. I learned after a couple of batches to poke a hole in the dough before baking so that they wouldn’t puff up
I kept seeing this pasta salad on Pinterest. It said “Best Pasta Salad Ever ” so I thought I would try it
Everyone loved it. I used candied walnuts instead of pecans though.
So, what was on your menu this weekend? Do you ever find time to make anything from Pinterest?
