my pinterest challenge

I'll just be a little early on my Pinterest Challenge reveal, just because I kinda cheated a little and took an easy way out - I cooked. With the move and still working on big projects and not having this house look like a home yet, I opted to cook something I've pinned to fulfil the challenge.

Introducing a little blagging. Bragging on the blog, if you will... (Blake coined the term and I like!)

With this pin, I'm pretty sure I made the best dinner I've ever made last night. Insert Blagging.

I think I've been juvenile in my tastes for about 25 years, but lately, I've been trying things I haven't even heard of - and loving it! (Proscuitto. Instance #1. I spent about 10 minutes yesterday looking for this in the special cheese section of Tom Thumb. Embarrassing. Helpful lady stocking shelves explained to me that it was thinly sliced dry-cured ham. Well. There ya go.)

Other fun ingredients never used before. Phyllo dough. Artichoke hearts. Sun-dried tomatoes.

Guys, I literally grew up on turkey and bacon sandwiches. Hello brand new world of food!

You can find the recipe over HERE!

Chicken, Sun-Dried Tomato and Basil wrapped in Filo

Mission Accomplished.


  1. Definitely want to make this! I, too, have always eaten like a 12-year-old. I grew up on chicken nuggets and french fries. You're inspiring me to branch out!!

  2. Hi Lauren! Thanks for the link to my blog and for making this recipe from Mary Ellen Rae's cooking class. Wasn't that chicken really moist? Love your website. I'll be back. Lynne xo
