Pinned it, Did it: Part 9 | Pinterest Thursday | iPhonography

This Thursday, I didn't do any pins I am happy to feature one of my fabulous friend's pin. Annie is just as addicted to Pinterest as I am ... which, as you all know, is pretty extreme! But obviously, I pin a million things and only get around to one or two a week. So, I asked if I could share Annie's pins for her dinner she made for her and her daughter last night.  She saved my butt happily agreed.

Annie's Pinterest dinner last night: (looks amazing right?!)

First up was this amazing PIN: A Ham and Cheese Cresent Roll

Looks amazing doesn't it?! She got the pin from Cooking4Carnivores blog:
"Start with a roll of 4 regular Pillsbury crescent rolls. Unroll them and divide the rolls in half leaving two triangles connected. You should have two rectangles. Lightly flour them and a rolling pin. Flatten the rectangles out some. Then place them on a greased cookie sheet. Top each with your chosen ingredients. This night we both had swiss cheese. The carnivore also had deli ham, while I had vidalia onions and basil. Once filled roll the reactangles. Then bake these beauties according to the directions (usually a little more than ten minutes at 375 degrees). Remove from the oven while golden brown and serve while hot."

Annie's review: "I found the middle dough didn't cook it all the way so maybe try cooking it at a lower temperature for a longer period of time. (My daughter) doesn't like the rolls. She's eating the cresent rolls and taking off the ham and cheese. And I personally don't like the Swiss, but sometimes when it's cooked with other things, it's not too bad. But I don't care for this and probably wouldn't make these again."

My take: Maybe substituting the Swiss with another cheese, maybe American? I think it may taste a lil' more like a Hotpocket. It's an option. I think I might try it out, it looks fairly simple and quick to make on a busy week day.

Side not: Annie cooked the rolls for 17 minutes instead of the suggested 10 minutes and still had a "not-so-cooked" middle.

Next up was this PIN: The Best Broccoli of Your Life

Yum, yum, yummy! My family is BIG on broccoli and with Annie's review, we will definitely be trying this out! She got the pin from Amateur Gourmet's blog:
"You preheat the oven to 425. Put the broccoli on a cookie sheet. Toss with olive oil, salt and pepper. (5 Tbs olive oil, 1 1/2 tsps kosher salt, 1/2 tsp fresh ground pepper) Now add 4 garlic cloves that are peeled and sliced and toss them in too. Roast in the oven 20 to 25 minutes, until 'crisp-tender and the tips of some of the florets are browned.' When it’s done, take it out of the oven–and here’s where it gets really good–zest a lemon over the broccoli, squeeze the lemon juice over the broccoli, add 1.5 Tbs more olive oil, 3 Tbs toasted pine nuts, and 1/3 cup of freshly grated Parmesan cheese. Also add 2 Tbs fresh basil."
Annie's review: "Absolutely delicious! Crispy and crunchy. I'm surprised I got a picture before I ate them all! Seriously Shari, you HAVE to try this recipe!"

My take: Um, yes. I will be trying this and probably will be making it for the rest of my life! LOL
