Food: New Year, New Inspirations

Lately Pinterest has been such a great source of inspiration. 
I pinned inspiring images for what seemed like hours one afternoon. It may have been more a workout for my brain than one for my glutes, but who's keeping track?

All I know is that after spending some time on Pinterest { you can visit my Pinterest here }, I'm feeling rather inspired to cook more and DIY more. That's all that matters, right?

A few days ago I found a recipe for this delicious chicken,
and we ate it for dinner this week. It was fantastic!

here's how ours turned out:
Maybe I layered on the cheese a bit thicker than the one in the Pinterest image I found... but that's the great thing about cooking. You can do whatever you want to the recipe! (:

I'd love to make this chicken noodle soup sometime soon!
{ also found on Pinterest }

Doesn't the food in these pictures look scrumptious?!
{ do you have any new favorite recipes... any that you found via Pinterest? }

Oh... this week we also enjoyed
some homemade macaroni and cheese!
I've been using this Barefoot Contessa recipe for
a long time now, and it never fails to be amazing!
{ I just substituted chicken and bacon for the lobster... added some blue cheese... 
and added some minced basil to the breadcrumbs... yum! }

Enough food for today....

Pinterest has even inspired me to tackle some
updates in our office/guest room.

{ more on that next week }

Happy Friday!
