For Mother's Day I made several recipes I found on Pinterest. (Do they have an I did this button yet?)

Grilled Chicken Bruschetta

Find the full recipe at This recipe was easy to make. I doubled the recipe it because we had 6 people to feed. It was easy to make and took about half an hour to make the bruschetta the day before. I ended up adding in two extra TBSP of balsamic vinegar (or just 1 if you aren't doubling) because I like more kick to my food. We ended up with plenty of the mix and I probably didn't need to double the recipe. I marinated for about 24 hours before serving. Dad cooked the chicken cutlets on a George Foreman Grill. This was yummy. I still think I should have added a bit more vinegar though.


Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries

Find the full recipe at The Sweet Life. This recipe was super simple. I am not the best at knifework in the kitchen. To cut the tops of the strawberries I pulled the leaves off first then cut a circle around the top. There were only a couple of strawberries in the whole bunch that I had to make a little more space inside. I also cut a little off the bottom so the strawberry would stand up. Using a ziploc bag for the filling was easy and turning the stuffed strawberries upside down to dip in the graham crackers wasn't any trouble at all. Nothing fell out. Overall this took about an hour to do a full batch from start to finish.


Oreo Truffles

Find the full recipe at Chef in Training. These are a little slice of heaven. Big Brother pretended to faint, repeatedly, because they were so good. Easy to make although if you don't have a food processor (I don't) it takes a while to crush all the Oreos. Shaping into balls went smoothly. Make sure the chocolate is good and melty before putting on the Oreo balls. You may need to stop and remelt the chocolate part way through dipping. These were a huge hit with everyone that tried one.

Apple Pie Dip and Cinnamon-Sugar Tortilla Chips

Find the full recipe at The Peach Kitchen. There has got to be a faster way to dice apples. I would make this all the time if there was. If you know one, leave a comment please please please. Again I doubled the recipe because we had 6 people. I used 6 smaller Pink Lady apples. I didn't want it to be too tart and I like the sweetness of the Pink Lady apples. Instead of 2 tbsp lemon juice I used 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar for a little kick. Important to note – if you live in the US the oven temp should be 375. This tastes a lot worse for you than it is which is a bonus.
