Winter Recipe Inspiration

As those of you who follow me already know, I’m obsessed with Pinterest, and one of my most active boards is without a doubt Food & Drink, where I’ve stockpiled tons of new recipes I can’t wait to try.

But since the tasty options have started to stack up faster than we can possibly make them, Stephen and I are setting a goal to try at least two new recipes each week from now on. I’m excited to change things up a bit and also stay on track with our plan to save some green by cooking at home more often.

Here, a few of the recipes that are getting us started, including some you might even recognize from your own blog posts!

How often do you try out new recipes, and where do you get most of your inspiration? If you're on Pinterest, come say hi @


  1. Yay, I'm so glad you're going to try the black bean and rice burgers - you won't be disappointed. You have some great recipes here - the Thai chicken coconut curry and the black bean dip with plantains looks delicious. I love cooking with my husband several times per week - I look forward to discovering new recipes and spending time together in the kitchen :)

  2. Two recipes a week sounds like a great goal! I love pinning recipes, but usually I definitely know I'm too lazy to actually try them, unless it's for a special occasion!

  3. All of these sound delicious. I've been pinning some recipes (including a couple of these!) and need to find the time to make them!

  4. Those pesto potatoes look AMAZING!
    We totally make the stuff we find on Pinterest, too and it's given us some of our new favorites!
    I'd definitely do that roasted broccoli on pinterest; it was nuts!

  5. I have tried a few recipes from pinterest, in fact this past weekend I made crock pot chicken burritos, those were delicious!
