Happy Wednesday!!…or today I’m calling it, “PINsday”!!!

Yes, that’s right, I took a trip over to my Pinterest board, Playing with Food, yesterday to give two of the recipes a whirl for dinner options last night.  Trey and his sister were my guinea pigs, bless their hearts.

I chose Philly Steak Stuffed Bell Peppers and Cheeseburger Egg Rolls.  Diet-friendly….uh huh.  Who cares,  it is a test drive down recipe lane so we can make up for it today.

Back to the trial.  I wanted to put these to the test to see if they really do turn out like they look like in the pretty photos you see on Pinterest.  You know, the ones that grab your attention, and your appetite.


RECIPE TRIAL #1:  Philly Steak Stuffed Bell Peppers!!

Here’s the stuffed bell pepper image.  Looks pretty easy, straightforward and yummy:

And here’s my attempt:

VERDICT:  These were pretty tasty!!  I do think you should probably add more cheese and maybe something like bread crumbs to the inside but maybe that’s just me 🙂


Recipe Trial #2:  Cheeseburger Egg Rolls!!

oh my gosh…oh my gosh……

Cheeseburger Egg Rolls

This recipe caught my attention right away with the crispy [fried] egg roll wrapper and cheesy and meaty stuffing.  It was love at first sight.  If you’re on a diet, please look away and discontinue reading the rest of this blog post.  You’re welcome.


Here’s how this one went:

egg roll step 2

Don’t forget your favorite condiments to dip these bad boys in!!  I like ketchup and mustard!!

VERDICT: Let me just tell you how good these are…..mouth.watering.  AND, just by experimentation, there was Philly Cheese Steak leftover and I rolled it up in an egg roll wrapper and O.M.G………. The possibilities are endless!!!


Now next time I will try them baked so that I don’t have to stay an extra 2 hours at the gym asking for forgiveness.


I hope you give these a whirl, too!!  I’ll be testing out more Pinterest items (not just food!!) so stay tuned to my blog!!
