Do you Pinterest?…

on May 22, 2012

I’m sure you do. Who doesn’t? Like so many things on the Internet, Pinterest is a double-edged sword.  A blessing and a curse! It is, of course, an incredible time waster. I’ve spent way too much time pinning recipes that I haven’t yet tried – the key word, however, is “yet.”  My goal this summer is to try one or two new Pinterest recipes each week.  Another goal of mine is to get organized.  In order to kill two goals with one stone,  I am organizing my Pinterest recipes. Clever, no? Of course there is a nagging voice in the back of my mind telling me that there is a better use of my time than re-pinning recipes I’ve already pinned.  But I shut that voice up with a fabulous new cookie, casserole, or soup from one of my many boards.

So what I have done is create a new Pinterest board to keep track recipes I’ve made.  When I try a new recipe, I will pin it to this new board along with comments on how I liked it and what, if any, substitutions or additions I made to the original.  I know what you’re thinking.  “How clever!”  A way to make pinning even more productive. Yes, well, it was this or clean out the linen closet. If I’ve got to organize something, I’ll start with my pins. And it has been fun trying all these new recipes – some are definitely better than others.

Take a look at stuff-i-ve-pinned-and-actually-tried and check back weekly to see which recipes are worth trying yourself.  Happy Pinning!
