Although I haven't been cooking too much lately, mostly because between my husband having lots of work dinners and us staying at our new vacation home in Florida we haven't been home too much, but I have tried a few new Pinterest recipes that have worked out quite well.
One recent Friday night, my husband asked me to make him Spanish Rice. I'm not a big fan of Spanish Rice, so I checked out Pinterest to see if there was something new that would be easy to make alongside the rice dish for me to eat.
I found this Chicken Meatball Orzo Soup that turned out so well. I was a little afraid that the chicken meatballs would be dry, but these were very juicy and tasty. This recipe is one that I will make again when the weather turns cool.
The recipe came from Will Cook For Smiles, and it is a winner. The link is here.

It's another easy one, great for a simple weeknight dinner when you don't have much time to get dinner on the table. I added some rice and a green salad on the side and Bob's your uncle, dinner is served.
This recipe came from Recipes, Food & Cooking, and can be found here.
This last recipe I made because I had delicious pears from the fundraising dinner we attended for Hudson River Healthcare Foundation a few weeks ago. (My post about that is here.) This one is from Cooking Light, called Prosciutto, Pear and Blue Cheese Sandwich, and is great for a ladies luncheon.

One last thing- my friend's daughter Hannah just started a blog called Me Oh My Ohio, and she has some very cute photos of her holiday decorations for her mantel in her new home in Ohio. She is very clever, and uses inexpensive things like dried corn and beans in decorative jars that is so clever and cute. Check out her blog here.
