My Top 5 Favorite Recipes Found on Pinterest

Anyone who knows me, knows I LOVE Pinterest. Like love, love!  In fact my husband oh-so affectionately refers to it as my "Pornterest".  Yeah, he's kind of funny like that.

Any whoooo, today I thought I would share with you my top 5 favorite recipe related pins.  Since my daughter has Celiac's Disease and I suffer from several food allergies , finding yummy foods the whole family can enjoy can sometimes be a downer.  So when Pinterest came around it made looking for delicious GF and DF recipes so much easier!

Of course some of these recipes we have to alter (ex: using vegan butter instead of regular cow's butter) but they are definitely keepers in this house.  And with that, here are my top 5 recipe pins (which also happen to be gluten free):

Microwave Potato Chips
From Food Gal
Yes, these are potato chips you make the microwave! These are not only super easy to make but they are addicting! They usually don't last more than 2 minutes...seriously, they are that good!

Roasted Broccoli with Garlic and Chile
I've been making this for a few years now.  It's a favorite among my entire family. Even my 12 year old son loves it, and he's the picky eater of the family.

Old Fashioned Pink Popcorn
Since this recipe calls for 2/3 cup half and half (which my daughter can't have) I had to google a half and half alternative.  I believe I ended up using a vegan butter/soymilk type of mixture.  Sure enough, it turned out great! Now I'm obsessed with pink popcorn.

DIY Taco Seasoning
I think I may have jumped for joy when I found this pin-LITERALLY! Every premade taco seasoning pack/kit I've come across the 2nd ingredient is usually maltodextrin or wheat gluten.  Big time bummer.  So when I found this pin I was overjoyed.  We've used this simple mix dozens of times and it's delicious!

Wicked Easy Salsa
Best salsa recipe EVER! Super easy, super yummy, it's amazing.

Have you spotted these recipes on Pinterest? Did you try them? If so what did you think of them?  I'd love to know!


  1. That is one of my faves about Pinterest too. I get lots of healthy low fat recipes.
