The best ever broccoli recipe that floated around here a year or so ago was by far the best thing I have ever made from Pinterest.

Ooooh... I'm going to try out that Korean beef recipe. TFS!

And the best ever broccoli... Yep! Best ever!

I found a recipe for cream cheese frosting on Pinterest that everyone raves about. I can't link it right now (I'm at work, on break), but it's wonderful on pumpkin spice muffins!

These biscuits.

I could eat the whole pan by myself. If you do try them a word of advice, skip the step about patting out on a flat surface as it's not necessary. Just put the dough in the pan and pat down then cut them when done cooking.

This might be my favorite thread ever at 2Peas in all the years I've ever been here and (I hope) it's only just getting started!

That first pin, that bill payment tracking system, just changed my life! OMG! I have been trying to get a good system going for this for years and in reading that just now I cannot overexaggerate how delighted that made me! I love it when I find stuff like that that will work so perfectly for me.

And OMG, the broccoli? Not worthy!

I hope people keep 'em coming here! TFS!!!

I must try that broccoli!!!!

Yes, it's this broccoli yum
I don't even bother with the lemon, pine nuts, or parm anymore. Trying to save calories by leaving out the parm and I've found i like it better without the lemon. but my gosh, i could eat a sheet pan of it myself. i cook it until it's almost burnt looking. Heaven.

MaryKay Lady, I don't think your recipe has a high enough temp, or long enough cooking time.

Glue wine corks to a yard stick for a vertical cork board.

Meant to post a picture and copied the wrong link instead! Pretty self explanatory, I used model glue on a Home Depot yardstick. The pin did not come with instructions, only a picture of the final result.

My family didn't like the broccoli. We do like a few other veggies roasted though.

I'm totally trying the bill paying notebook.

I love these 2 salads....

Autumn chopped salad

Greek spinach pasta salad On this salad...I doctored it for my family...I leave out the beans and use a lemon vinaigrette dressing instead of making the dressing. I also add grilled chicken to make it a whole meal.

Will definitely need to try the broccoli recipe and the korean beef!

Shredding meat with the KA mixer using the flat paddle. We have done pounds and pounds of meat. Our family likes shredded meat rather than chopped. Even DH was impressed and tells people about this!

The broccoli recipe (which I am sure was posted here from Pinterest) was different from the one posted.

The broccoli was washed and had to be well dried.

Then halfway through cooking fresh lemon juice was squeezed over it and shredded parmigiano-reggiano cheese was sprinkled on top. The lemon & the cheese make it so savory!

Love this No Bake Blueberry Cheesecake and these Rotel Cups that I found on pinterest

My next door neighbor in college some 40 years ago (seems like yesterday, really) made this pie but put a layer of sliced bananas on the crust first. Thought you might like to try a variation. And cherry pie filling is great, too, but never tried that with bananas. Might work, I don't know.

One is just a hint/tip. It's so simple, it's "why didn't I think of that?" Trying to get a key on or off a key ring that's closed real tight? Use a stapler remover. The pointy teeth in that are perfect for prying open (and holding open) a key ring.

Another tip is cleaning the stovetop grates by putting them in a baggie with ammonia. The ammonia fumes loosen the gunk they wipe clean.

Recipes that I've made several times that get rave reviews:

Lemon pull-apart bread

Peanut Butter Truffle Brownies

Buffalo Chicken Rolls (this is a HUGE HUGE hit)
