Some Pinterest Fun

I haven't posted any Pinterest posts in quite awhile mostly because, ideas I find from there, I'm posting elsewhere such as our summer fun or weekly recipes.  I thought I would share this here though because the two things I tried were not great but were not awful and you may want to try them (or be glad that I did so you don't have to!)

First up are the Crescent Sloppy Joe Triangles from Tricks Chef's.  (If you click the link, you will find the recipe!).  As I was making these I realized that they were very similar to my BBQ Cups and, I will admit, we liked the originally BBQ Cups better.  Now with that said, each of my boys ate three triangles - they loved them.  As a matter of fact, I'm adding this to our lunch menu - I plan on cooking up some of the BBQ meant and freezing it in small containers.  Then I can make up the triangles as an easy lunch.  They would also make a simple appetizer and a great finger food. 

Second, is  the Copy Cat Hash brown Casserole from Cracker Barrel from Budget Savvy Diva.  Now, here's the deal.  I'm not a huge Cracker Barrel Fan - sure I like the atmosphere and enjoy some of their food but normally, it would not be my place to stop to eat BUT I DO love their Hash brown Casserole and order it as my side no matter what I get to eat.  I was so excited when I cam across this recipe.  Well, let me just say, I'd rather have my traditional Cheesy Potatoes over this recipe any day.  It had very little flavor and was kind of dry.  It is not something I plan on making again.

You'll have to let me know if you try either of these recipes and if your opinion is the same or different than what I shared.
