Anyways, I decided to start trying some of my pins. Wouldn't you know that I already found quite a few links that were spam? I also read several blogs that are solely dedicated to trying out pins and blogging about it. Turns out, not everything that glitters is gold. I knew that of course, but it is easy to forget when one is looking at a gorgeous picture of seeming perfection.
Starting with recipes should be fairly foolproof, so here is the first pin I tried:

It was a hit with me and my husband. Not so much with the boys. I am on a cilantro and cumin kick right now, so anything with those two ingredients in it is going to pass. But, this soup is really perfect for the fall. My husband, who is a meat lover and likes to stick to true and tried recipes really enjoyed this soup and told me it was a keeper! I left out the jalapeno and cooked it on high to reduce the time. I also added more chicken broth because I used a whole butternut squash and that was way more than the 3 cups the recipe calls for. We had it with shredded Parmesan cheese and a dollop of sour cream.
