Weekend Cooking: Pin It and Do It

Trish from Love, Laughter and a Touch of Insanity is having another Round of Pin It and Do It! And of course I am all for that! If you don't know what Pin It and Do It is, head over there to take a look what this is all about :)

I have been picking quite a lot of recipes from Pinterest recently to make. It is my favorite site to go to if I want to try something new. Here is a summary of recipes that I tried from Pinterest this month :)

Batch of zucchini latkes

One potato and one zucchini latke with sour cream

From Avocado Pesto I tried these zucchini and potato latkes! It are basically fritters. This recipe is so good though that this will probably be my new base recipe to go to when I want to make something like this :) I love it. Find the recipe here!

Carrot risotto
From Amuse Your Bouche I have Carrot and coriander risotto with mozzarella. It is one of my favorite ways to prepare carrots from now on! Click on the link for the recipe.

I also made Avocado Hummus from Giada de Laurentiis. I didn't make the pita chips that went with it but just ate it on a sandwich. It is good, but a bit on the sour side. Less lemon next time ;) Vegan and delicious!

I tried some more recipes, but I will save that for a next post. I can't garuantee that will be a Weekend Cooking post as well. It depends if I find the energy to write some book reviews. So keep and eye on the blog if you want the scoop ;)

This post is part of Weekend Cooking, hosted by Beth Fish Reads. Head over there to see what everyone has been cooking up!


  1. Those latkes have my attention...yum

  2. I think I need to eat at your house! I love all the things you made. I've never had zucchini latkes, but they sound yummy. I'll eat risotto anything, and avocado hummus? Yes, please.

  3. All of these sound good. Craving risotto now, especially :).

  4. That risotto picture is giving me a serious craving! Basically all the things you made look mouthwatering. And yay, for Pin It and Do It, I love it!

  5. If I only had a Jewish grandma to make me latkes! perfect comfort food!

  6. I've never had a latke, but they look awesome. And the hummus looks yummy too.

  7. So I came the other day and then tried to pin those latkes and my computer went out on me. They do look so good and I love sneaking in zucchini to my recipes. Going to try these!

  8. I'm definitely going to try the Avocado Hummus!

  9. Those potato and zucchini latkes look delicious!
