Pinterest: I Tried It (Cheesy Quinoa Bites)


Welcome pinners and friends!  If you've tried something from one of you pin boards this week and blogged about it, you can link up your post at the bottom of this one.  I love to see what everyone's been working on! (Note: I think next week we are going to do an any kind of project link-up; doesn't have to be Pinterest related necessarily.  I would like to get some more participation!)

This week I decided to try another recipe that I saw and pinned and then looked at the ingredients and decided to make them right away:


Becky over at So Very Blessed has this recipe posted, and I was excited to try it because I had just bought a box of quinoa and was looking for something to make with it, and really, anything "cheesy" sounds good in my book.  They were very easy to make and came together pretty quickly.


Other than the very dark picture, they look pretty much the same!  However, they are not exactly the best thing I've ever tasted.  "Cheesy" might not be the right word for them, although they do have Parmesan cheese in them.  They were a little dry, although we didn't use a dipping sauce like Becky did.  Hubs thought they were ok, and we're making our way through the batch, but I think maybe I'll try them with something like cheddar cheese the next time and try to make them a little cheesier.  I think they'd be pretty good for you health-wise this way, though, because quinoa is one of those super-grains they talk about now and there's vegetables in there, so if you're looking for a filling good-for-you snack, these are pretty decent.

So how about you?  How were your pinning experiments this week?  Link up below or leave a comment!  And remember- same time next week!  I had a lot of fun trying this one out and may stick to the sewing board for a little while.

Feel free to grab a botton to add to your post to share this link-up with your readers!
