Pinterest is a social media tool that allows you to bookmark content around the web in a visually pleasing arrangement. In this course, author Justin Seeley illustrates the basics of setting up and managing a Pinterest account and explores ideas for finding inspiration. Fill out your profile, add friends, and start pinning. Discover how to share activity on Facebook and Twitter, add your own image and video pins, and plan for activities like a wedding or vacation. The course also covers pinning on the go with the iOS and Android apps.
As someone who is always trying to find new and exciting things to try in the ways of food, especially things that are healthy for me, I find Pinterest to be an absolute gem when it comes to aggregating things that I might want to cook for myself or that I might want to ask my wife to try to learn how to make as well. I've created a simple board here called Recipe Items. Let's take a look at that now. So on this Recipe Items page, you can see that I refer to it as These are all tasty things that I'd like to learn how to make one day! It's not necessarily the full-on recipe, although you could theoretically paste in a short recipe into the pin description. But these are merely inspirational things that I'd like to learn how to make one day, like for instance vegetable meatloaf. Sounds good to me.
Another great thing that you could do is utilize the Edit feature of these pins in order to plug in an address that actually references one of these recipes. So for instance, if I wanted to go and search for how to make vegetable meatloaf, I could do a Google search for that, find a recipe that sounds good, come back, hit the Edit button, and then paste that into the link section of that particular pin. Once I have that link, I'll click Save and it will return me back out. Then if there's anything that I've associated with that, like a link, that will be posted right here.
I can then click on it and then I can go grab that recipe. So I don't have to spend time actually copying recipes, printing them out, pasting them into a Word document, or something like that. I get a reference photo based upon what I pinned originally. Then I'll have a link pertaining to the actual recipe itself. Then I can click that link, view the recipe, and all I have to do after I am finished is close the window. There is no printing; there are no pages to sift through, nothing. It's all right there. And I can have them all on one single page right here on my Pinterest board. So that's extremely easy and extremely helpful.
So, as you continue to explore, my recommendation is to create a Recipe Items board. As you start to find things online that you think might be tasty down the road, it doesn't mean you have to make them today, but pin them to your recipe board and then come back anytime you want. Say hmm, you know that stuffed squid looks pretty good. Let's go find a recipe for that. It's a great way to explore new things and also to aggregate all of the information that you need.
