Just 'Pin It'

Last year I decided to put a lot of my recipe collection on Pinterest.  I did a really good job of cleaning out recipe files and should probably just discard anything I couldn't find online.  My reasoning is quite simple:  every time I am looking for a recipe, the first thing I do is check my Pinterest account.

I have spent a lot of time organizing it so that I do not have to search through hundreds of recipes.  Want to make a berry pie with your latest market find?  There is a board for that.

So, in the interest, purely selfish, of seeking more followers for my pages, I am listing each of my current categories (I am always updating boards) with their links.  I do have other Boards besides those with recipes, and you can find the full line up here.

Tomorrow I'll be back with all of the sweet treat boards.  You really should eat your healthy food first.  So now I will go eat the healthy vegetable soup I made for which I really do not have a recipe. 


  1. I have all my recipes in a cookery book program on my computers. They are sorted the way I want them and its easy to find the ones I want.

  2. I was going to say also, I have never really used Pinterest.

  3. I have pinned recipes,home improvement and clothes ideas. I use Pinterest for dreaming and useful ideas,it really is fun.
