I'm hooked.

Need I say more?
Why did it take so long for a site like this to be made?
It. is. everything.
I have been pinning like a MANIAC! If I would have found this before my wedding, I just honestly don't know what I would have done.
Lately I've been really into looking at teaching/classroom ideas and recipes.
If only 90% of the recipes on pinterest weren't delicious, decadent desserts that I am desperately trying to avoid.
BUT...I did manage to find some decently "healthy" dishes to try and here is my experience:

First Recipe: Spinach Lasagna Roll-ups
These were AMAZING and super easy.
Ingredients: 1lb. lasagna noodles, 150z. ricotta cheese, 1 cup shredded mozzerella, 1 egg, 10oz. spinach, 1 jar of marinara, salt and pepper.
First, cook the lasagna noodle
s according to box and drain.
While the noodles are cooking, make your filling. Mix spinach, ricotta, mozzarella, egg, and some salt and pepper together in a bowl. Mix until well combined.

When the noodles and filling are ready preheat the oven to 400 degre
es and spray pan with non-stick spray.
Next, lay out a few noodles and spread some filling from end to end of each noodle. Don't spread it too thick because you do have to roll them up and you don
't want any filling to squeeze out.

Roll the noodles up and place in baking dish. Continue until filling is gone or pan is full. You will have noodles left over, but you can use them for back-up if some rip.

Once the pan is filled, pour the marinara over the noodles making sure everything is covered. Then, cover with foil and place in the oven to bake for 30 min. Then take it out and ENJOY!

Second Recipe: Red Lobster's Cheddar Biscuits

This recipe tastes just like the real thing and who doesn't love Red Lobster's Cheddar Biscuits?!
Ingredients: 2 cups of Bisquick, 2/3 cup of milk, 1/2 cup of shredded cheddar cheese, 1/4 cup of butter (melted), 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/4 teaspoon parsley.

First, preheat the oven to 450 degrees and mix the Bisquick, milk, and cheese until a soft dough forms.

Then, drop spoonfuls of the mix onto a cookie sheet and bake for 8-10 min.
Mix the melted butter, garlic powder, and parsley and brush generously over the biscuits once removed from the oven.
Serve warm and bask in the buttery goodness!
