Pinning on Pinterest

My youngest daughter convinced me to join Pinterest. OMG !! I was lost in the lair of Pinterest for days! I set up boards and pinned away. There are some AMAZING things there, but what seems so funny to me is the number of recipes being posted that claim to be “just like” this restaurant or that restaurant…so many “copycat” recipes.

In many cases, the reason these recipes are so loved is that the restaurants, when coming up with THEIR recipes, wanted to copycat those comfort foods that our mothers and grandmothers used to serve. Instead of pinning those copycat “just like Restaurant X” recipes, ask your mom or grandmom if you can go through their recipe boxes and find some really tasty recipes to try. And, then, of course, when you make them, post the results on Pinterest for the rest of us to enjoy!!
