I don’t have a recipe to share with you today! My menus have been really boring lately and I haven’t tried any new recipes (with the exception of the amazing pizza I made last week). Part of that is because I’ve been going out to dinner a lot (for legitimate reasons) and because I’ve been trying to eat everything that’s in my house to prevent food waste.
I also set an April goal of not printing any new recipes. While I haven’t entirely stuck to this, I have been doing a much better job of not bringing home countless new recipes to try.
That doesn’t mean I haven’t been spending lots of time pursuing new recipes. I just haven’t been printing them out. Instead, I’ve been pinning them.
My friend Ashley sent me an invitation to Pinterest forever ago, but I didn’t get around to checking it out since early this month. And now I’m obsessed. And I pin things, especially recipes, obsessively.
So what is Pinterest, exactly? Pinterest is like a giant bulletin board where you put up pictures of all your favorite things, except it’s online and you are “pinning” things you find online. You create boards, title them, pin your favorite new finds, and share them with the world (or at least, other Pinterest users). You can check out other peoples’ boards and “repin” their finds. You can also “follow” other users and certain boards. You can even add a “Pin It” button in your browser. It’s super cool and super addicting.
So instead of printing new recipes out, I’ve been pinning them to my recipe board. I’m quite addicted and I think you should be too. 🙂
Disclosure: I am NOT affiliated with Pinterest and no one is paying me to say anything about the site. I just think it’s super awesome and think you should think it’s super awesome as well.
