You know all those listicles with hysterical Pinterest fails? Well you will see none of that here! This post is all about Pinterest SUCCESSES! My mom bought me some baking equipment for Christmas this past year, so I've been trying out some of those recipes that I've pinned over the years. Pinterest has a great new feature called "Tried It," where you can mark if you, duh, tried the recipe and leave some feedback. Here are some of the recipes I've tried and really liked!

Cornbread with Sun-Dried Tomatoes, Basil, and Cheese

This is what's in the photo above! 

Notes: Definitely needs more shredded cheese! I didn't include the tomatoes because I'm not a fan of sun-drieds. 

Paula Deen's Red Velvet Cupcakes

Notes: the batter needs more cocoa powder, but these were DELICIOUS. Obviously they had to be...it's a Paula Deen recipe. I had made these for the Super Bowl party we threw at our apartment.

Simple and Easy Hummus without Tahini 

I'm not nuts about the tahini flavor, so I was looking for a recipe that would be best without it. This hummus is VERY GOOD. 

Chocolate Chip Sour Cream Muffins 

Loved these. I need to make them again!

Homemade Basil Pesto

The heading on the pin says it takes 5 minutes to make and they really aren't kidding. This was insanely easy to make, and crazy delicious.
