Bramell, Party of Five: Pinterest Made Me Do It

Pinterest Made Me Do It

Time for another edition of Pinterest Made Me Do It.  There's been a whole lot of cooking and crafting going on in the Bramell house lately. I find this odd for a few reasons: 1) I'm not really very crafty  2) How do I find the time to be in the kitchen when I have three little ones always calling my name and 3) It just makes me want to eat more and do more home improvement projects.  Go figure.

Anyway, I thought I'd share a couple of new recipes that we've tried recently.  First up, Balsamic and Onion Pot Roast.  It was a hit! Actually, I cannot take any credit for this one, as the hubby took care of making it while I was at work.  So, credit to the hubby and the crockpot!  To be honest, I was a little afraid of how this would turn out---I didn't want it to have an overwhelming taste of onions. (It didn't). Also, I didn't know what kind of flavor the balsamic vineagar would have. The only thing we'll change next time is not putting carrots in the crock; they tasted bitter and nobody would eat them.

Here's the final showcase:

Next up, our newest sweet treat addiction--the No Bake Cookie Bites. Don't let the name fool you; these are so much healthier than cookies. And what the heck is flaxseed? I was again afraid of the unknown....but another hit! I've made them twice and we can't stop eating them. One batch made about 15 cookies, FYI.
