5 Favorites, Vol. 9

Finally finding inspiration for my five favorites this week, 'cause linking with Hallie is like a drug. It makes me feel so good to find the best little things in life. Anyway, I'm having a theme week. These are 5 recipes I've found on Pinterest that actually work and have become family my favorites. I've linked some of them before, I know, but they are too good not to share en masse.

1.  Chocolate Glazed Banana Bread Muffins

If you are like me, there always seem to be bananas around the house that need some love. Add some chocolate and yes, please.

2. Cilantro Lime Chicken

I love a good Crock Pot meal, and I love it when the outcome is as versatile as this one is. I could use it in tacos, as recommended. I often serve it over brown rice as a rice bowl. It is really yummy in enchiladas with green enchilada sauce.

3. Brown Sugar Balsamic Glazed Pork Tenderloin

I've seen this all over the internet and it is so good and easy. I've made it as recommended in the recipe, using a Crock Pot. I've also used it to glaze pork tenderloin every 5 minutes for the last 15 minutes of cooking. I've also used it to glaze salmon.

4. Honey Garlic Pork Chops

This is tasty and easy. What's not to love. I marinate and bake in one dish; I can use the extra marinade as sauce to spoon over rice or broccoli.

5. Crock Pot Corn Chowder

I love having soup for lunch, so occasionally, I'll make soup for myself (and soon Clare) to eat throughout the week. I got this one going early in the AM to be done in time for lunch a couple of weeks ago and really enjoyed it. It would be a yummy dinner with some crusty bread and a salad, too.

Now, off you go! Happy list-hunting over at Hallie's!
