I’m On A Roll!

This week I have made not one, not two, but FOUR recipes from Pinterest!  I know!  Shocker. I feel productive, even though I’ve done nothing else to speak of this week.   I have actually tried five Pinterest recipes.  My mom made one last night for movie night.  So what did we try?  Was it any good?  Well let me tell you!

Monday I made:

KFC Copycat Coleslaw

Via

You can get the recipe {here}.

It was delicious!  I used a fresh lemon for the lemon juice, and I think that makes a BIG difference.  If you can, use freshly squeezed lemon juice.  She also chopped up a head of cabbage and a carrot.  I just used a bag of coleslaw mix.  Although next time I think I would at least give the coleslaw mix a rough chop to make it a little finer, like KFC coleslaw.  But overall I think it tastes a lot like KFC, but better.  It was really, really good.  I’ll definitely make it again.   Oh, and yes, the dressing recipe will dress an entire bag of coleslaw mix.  I started by using only half a bag, but I kept adding more as it sat longer. I also made Mexican Sweet Corn Cake on Monday.

You can get the recipe {here}.  Again, delicious!  I would make it again.  I didn’t have masa on hand, so I substituted cornmeal.  It was still really good.  I bought masa so I can try it again and see if it gives it a different flavor.  The recipe says to cream butter, masa, and water, but the water actually goes in at the end with the corn.  If you try to “cream” the water, you’re going to have problems.  I know.  Haha.  I should have read the recipe all the way through first.Also, my food processor just bounced the frozen corn around, so I rinsed the corn off to thaw it a bit and put it back in the processor.  Worked perfectly.  Really, really, really good.  I can’t wait to try it again. For movie night we watch The Help and ate Pinterest junk.  What’s better than that? I made Hot Corn Dip.
