Tuesday Talk: Pinterest Recipe Surprises

You may remember a few months ago, I shared some Pinterest disappointments. And because I don't like being the bearer of bad news, today I thought I would share some Pinterest surprises when it comes to recipes that I've recently tried. I don't know about you, but I love it when a new recipe is a yummy family pleaser. 
Baked Honey Hot Chicken Sandwiches || I'm not big on chicken sandwiches, but Wayne has a friend that supplies us with boneless chicken breasts and they're just thin enough to be perfect for sandwiches and that's why I decided to try this recipe one Sunday for supper. I served these on Kaiser buns and they were delicious! Totally surprised by the flavor of this new family favorite!

Cajun Caviar || Have you ever tried spreading pepper jelly over another thick layer of complete cheesiness? Let me just say that it isn't easy. This dip did not look all that pretty but our guests literally inhaled it while we waited for our crawfish to boil. Perfect app for a large crowd and the men especially like it! 

Cherry Cheesecake Dip || If you like cherries, then this is the perfect dish to serve as an appetizer or dessert. This recipe is so easy and I served it with graham crackers for dipping and it was a huge hit. 

Philly Cheese Steak Crescent Braid || I'm not sure why this recipe was a surprise because doesn't everything taste better wrapped in crescent rolls? I mean really! If you're a Philly Cheese Steak fan, then I highly recommend this filling meat braid.  I cut a little of the onions and it was still delicious.

Sopapilla Cheesecake || So I've mentioned this recipe before when I made it for our Cinco de Mayo party. And, yes, it calls for crescent rolls, too, so of course it's yummy! My kitchen smelled amazing as our guest arrived. There's just something about cinnamon and sugar.

I hope you're having a great week so far! I'm ready for a long weekend, aren't you? We're headed to Texas later this week and it is "officially" Alise's birthday weekend! We've been so busy - or either it's raining! - that I haven't even gotten the chance to enjoy our pool yet! My pool float is calling my name! Hopefully it will happen soon enough!  Have a GREAT Memorial Day Weekend!


Hi there, I'm Laura, I'm the happiest wife, the loudest cheer mom, and the craziest girlfriend you'all ever have, I'm a Southern Belle living in a Southern world!


  1. I'm going to make that Cajun Caviar - it looks so good and sounds pretty easy - right up my alley! Perfect for a day by the pool!
    Have the best day precious Laura!!!

    1. Let me know what you think about the dip, Kellyann! Us pool dip girls have got to stick together!

  2. The chicken sandwiches and philly cheesesteak sound like they would be big winners! Thanks for the links!

  3. Oh my yumminess! That cajun caviar sounds yummy! MY gang loves anything spicy!

  4. Yum. Can't wait to try these out.

  5. I love trying out new recipes on Pinterest.. but I'm awful about actually following the recipe! LOL. Thankfully we have had very few fails as I tend to tweak them for our tastes and preferences.

  6. Cherry cheesecake dip??? YES PLEASE - checking that out!

  7. You had me at Cheesecake dip!!! XO

  8. Scared to look at your recipes...we just started WW and have lost about 5 pounds a piece. I bet just salivating over your pics could put my weight right back on. The chicken sammies sound scrumptious. I did save a WW friendly chick sammy recipe last week and plan to try it this week. Sopapilla cheesecake...yes, we eat (used to eat) it for breakfast like a danish. MMmmmmm.
