A Couple of Pinterest Recipe Reviews

I’m still pinning recipes to my Pinterest Recipes to Try board, and I’m still pinning some twice!  🙂 I’m also trying them out as I have time.  Here are a couple I tried recently.

First up are these Egg Bacon Muffins that use ingredients I already had in my refrigerator.  How could I resist trying this recipe out?

Egg Bacon Muffins Before Baking

Before baking!

As you can see I filled this a bit full. 4 eggs salt pepper, water and some shredded cheddar cheese whisked together. I sprayed my muffin tins and then wrapped microwavable bacon around the outside of the muffin tin. Then whisked the eggs and poured them in. I baked them at 350 for 28 minutes, because they looked done to me.  Very tasty!

Check out the original pin here.  These Egg Bacon Muffins also reheat well.  I put three of them on a plate and microwaved them for 45 seconds.  Your microwave time will vary.

The second recipe is for a protein shake.  If you want to build muscle you need extra protein and many of us don’t get enough in our regular diets.  This required a trip to the store to buy Almond Milk.  I bought the unflavored, unsweetened Almond Milk.  It’s packed with calcium.

Protein Shake Homemade

Yes I drank some before I took the photo!

I’m enjoying this protein shake.   This is a tasty “on the go” way to get calcium and protein into your diet.  Here’s the original recipe I pinned.  The one change I made was to use coffee ice cubes instead of water ice cubes, that way the melting ice doesn’t create a watery shake.

As always, promptly refrigerate any leftovers!!
