So, when you see the original pin this one came from, you’ll understand why I wanted to test it. I mean, even though the gorgeous picture the original recipe provides is exponentially better than the picture I took with a potato (read: my phone camera), it still looks absolutely divine and scrumptious! However, the benefit of a 2girlsandapin review is that we’ll show you EXACTLY what you’ll end up with if you attempt to recreate a Pinterest recipe at home, without the benefits of gorgeous food styling and professional cameras (like I said, I’m literally doing this with my 5.0 megapixel camera phone).
The recipe for this glorious piece of stew came from Martha and the original pin we found it from.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! We found this delicious gem a little while ago and decided to make it our official St. Patrick’s Day meal. There is definitely gold at the end of this rainbow, if you can fend off the leprechaun, cause this stuff was absolutely fantastic!
This Pinterest find originally came from here, where you can also find the recipe.
I must admit, I have never had meatloaf before in my life, let alone prepared one. I don’t particularly have anything against them, but they just never showed up on my plate in all the years I’ve lived in the States. So, when I saw this “Hawaiian” meatloaf and asked the significant other about whether this would be something he’d be willing to try out, his response was that he’s not a particular fan of meatloaf, simply because covering anything in ketchup doesn’t sound appealing to him. But, when I explained that crushed pineapple makes this meatloaf “Hawaiian,” his Caribbean self was intrigued and gave it a go ahead…so here we are.

I don’t know if it was because I’ve been dealing with this flu or what, but when I saw this on Pinterest it instantly spoke to me! Problem was, I didn’t have any ground beef and I most definitely didn’t feel like going to the store. So, my trusted friend ground turkey came to the rescue! As you can see from the green badge this recipe got, it is absolutely delicious as prepared with turkey. I can only imagine it will be equally if not more delicious with beef!

Roast Beef, Cheddar, Caramelized Onions and Gravy Baked Potato! Yeah, I know…
OK, so this one is my adaptation of a baked spud I ALWAYS get at a deli in ATL (called McAllister’s) that, among other delicious thins, offers GIGANTIC baked potatoes with the most amazing toppings EVER! The original variant comes with au jus , but I always sub it for their delicious gravy!
So, the other night, in a moment of sheer genius, I decided to make this deliciousness myself! I found this pin a while ago and it offered promises of a salty, crunchy outside and a warm, soft inside of a baked potato…so I figured, 2 birds one stone with a 2girlsandapin review of a baked potato pin (this is where the recipe was originally repinned from) and our own fixings. Genius I say!
This little gem has been trapped in our Food 2 Test Queue for much too long. Although these were meant to be served as individual pies, I decided this gloriousness needed a bigger boat, so we made one giant steak and mushroom pot pie!
