Recipe Round-up

Part of our mission here at Domestic Divas in Training is to test out Pinterest recipes and find some keepers. I've tried out several recipes and found 5 that are definitely worth trying out. All of these recipes are easy. If I can make them then so can you!

1) Healthy Sausage, Egg and Cheese Muffins These muffins are amazing! Lately, I've been making a batch on Sundays to heat up during the week for breakfast. They are especially easy if you use the already prepared Jimmy Dean Turkey Sausage Crumbles. These are husband approved!

2) French Dip Crescents These are perfect to make on those days when you're tired, can't think of anything else to make, and don't want to pick up fast food. I use reduced fat crescent rolls, roast beef, and whatever cheese we have sitting in the fridge. You can even use the package of powdered au jus...just add water and you're good to go!

3) Turkey Meatloaf Cupcakes I was a little skeptical about these at first. Meat cupcakes just don't sound that appealing... But they turned out great! Serve these with mashed potatoes and a veggie and dinner is served.

4) Chickpea Tacos My husband is a man's man and likes to have his steak, burgers, or some type of meat with dinner every night. Needless to say, he wasn't too pleased when I suggested having Meatless Mondays in an effort to save a little money. Most of my attempts were awful, but this one was a winner! Just follow the recipe to make the chickpeas and then add your normal taco toppings. If you've never had roasted chickpeas, then you are missing out. I won't be disappointed!

5) Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Dip I can't post my favorite Pinterest recipes without including a dessert! If you know me or Angela at all then you know that sweets (and queso!) are our weakness. This Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Dip is so easy and so good! Serve it with animal cookies/crackers or graham crackers.

  1. Turkey meat cupcakes? I'm struggling with that one. Feeling a little reflux coming on...
