B Loved Boston - Guest Post!

This is the last guest post for the week girlies! This is another one of my favorite girls! Biana blogs over at B Loved Boston. Her blog always has something new on it, and her comments are the best! Do yourself a huge favor and check out her blog! Have a great weekend ladies!

Hello Made in the Shade Blog readers - I'm Biana and I write over at B-Loved Boston. There you'll find me talking about anything from fashion, fitness, and beauty to my attempts at DIY...although Becky has got me seriously beat in that department! While I may not be that great at DIY - one thing I'm pretty good at is replicating recipes and we all know where to go for that!! PINTEREST!

I thought I'd share a few of my tried and true Pinterest meals (all man approved as well)!!

BLT Chopped Salad with Corn, Feta & Avocado
Super easy & light for the warmer months ahead! 

Lasagna Roll Ups
When I was first looking at trying this recipe I was pretty intimidated because it had Lasagna in it...which I've come to realize is really not that hard to make!! I like to substitute the ground beef for ground turkey. 

Stuffed Peppers
I'm sort of cheating on this one because it's not really a Pinterest meal - but you can always pin it to be one!! This is my version of Stuffed Peppers and it's seriously easy and good!

Easy Chicken Parmesan
Definitely cheating on this one as well - but I like to have easy week night meals - especially when I know both my husband and I will be home late. Enter in the easiest Chicken Parmesan you will ever make!!

Shrimp Scampi with Linguine
This is probably one of the harder ones that I attempted, but there is literally a YouTube video giving you a step-by-step guide to get you through! The smell while cooking was enough to make your mouth water - so good!! 

Mini Egg Muffins
These are perfect to grab and go in the mornings!! The best part is you can include anything you want for your muffins. I like to do green onions, cheese & ham! 

And just for fun - here's one I'm hoping to try out real soon!
Maryland Crab Cakes

Thanks so much for reading and hop on over to my blog and say Hi! 


  1. Omgsh I want that first salad--yumms! Ok--lets be real--I want to try it all! Such a fun post--can't wait to check out your blog :)


    1. That first salad is really amazing!! It's almost become a weekly staple in our house!

  2. So many good choices Biana! I've been wanting to try out a breakfast muffin like those for a while-- might have to give it a try now!

  3. Lots of great choices, I can't get enough of Pinterest!!

  4. I have talked about doing those egg muffins for months and I have yet to try it. Adding to my list

  5. Glad you realized lasagna is easy dressed in sneaky clothes! The oven-ready noodles are amazing time savers for just the regular layered version. Shrimp scampi is for sure always a winner (obsessed with Ina's version). I actually made egg muffins on Sunday and stupidly didn't spray the muffin tin. Holy mess. And three day soak in the sink. Happy weekend :)

  6. All of these recipes look mouth-watering! I'm adding the BLT chopped salad and stuffed peppers to my must-try list!

  7. I always steal recipes from pinterest to try, it's definitely expanded my dinner routine.

  8. These all look SO good! Seriously - I need to pin every single one of these!

  9. Um, those crabcakes? OMG. xo
