Pin it & Do it #1

I love Pinterest. I also love food. I also love a damn good challenge! So naturally I joined the Pinteresting Challenge over at Love, Laughter and a Touch of Insanity. My challenge level choice is Pin Obsessed (to complete 8+ pins).

My zucchini boats
For my first Pin It & Do It challenge I picked something off of my Foodie board. Zucchini has always been a favorite of ours, so I went for this zucchini boat recipe from Proud Italian Cook. I modified the recipe a bit to our tastes- I used a shredded blend of cheese and I added shredded chicken to them for a bit of protein. We both enjoyed the zucchini boats, but agreed that it needed a bit more flavor. I used garlic olive oil and salt & pepper, thinking the strong garlic taste in my olive oil would be enough... next time we will add some more seasoning! Other than the fact that my camera phone food picture isn't nearly as pretty as the original, I am super happy with this pin!

Happy pinning!

  1. Hey Jenna, Its Cheryl, from Oneonta! I am loving your blog. I'm reading Gone Girl right now too. Can't wait to finish it and post my review on my blog. sugaraddictanonymous.blogspot.com

  2. Zucchini boats sound good. I like strongly flavored food too so I tend to end up pouring salsa all over everything.

  3. Looks yummy! I like the salsa idea. I've also improved dishes like this with a really strong and interesting cheese.

  4. Oh wow what a cool challenge to go!! I am obsessed with pinterest lol xx

  5. Those look great Jenna! I bet a little bit of oregano/basil would help brighten up the flavor of these but it's always frustrating to try a new recipe and have them turn out a little bland.
