Pinterest - Food

I am a little bit of a Pintrest addict and pin waaaay too many things that I never get around to trying!  I have however tried a few of the hundreds of recipes I have pinned.  Now if you had to see how many recipes I pin and how many cookery books I own or cookery shows I watch, your first impression would be that I love to cook.  Wrong!  I love the shows and the books but I actually really dislike cooking, but.... I really LOVE food and am a total foodaholic so I do cook and try out different recipes :)

So anyway I decided I wanted to start adding Pinterest things I have tried to my blog so I am going to start with a few recipes I have recently tried.

First up is this Baked Sweet and Sour Chicken from The Recipe Critic.  This was actually really nice and everyone apart from one very fussy child liked it!  I would definitely make this again as I love battered sweet and sour chicken but I did find it very sweet so I would probably make it with less sugar and a bit more vinegar and Soy sauce.  I served it on top of egg fried rice which was really yummy.  Just click on the picture for the recipe.


This Spicy Sausage Pasta from Kevin&Amanda.com was very nice too.  Quick and easy to make and everyone liked it.  I couldn't find any Turkey sausage so I just used a Mattesons smoked pork sausage and that seemed to work perfectly.  Once again just click on the picture if you want the recipe.
