Pinterest is my go-to for recipes! I have about fourteen different boards that are food and drink related. They're all different categories so it's easier to find things and the majority of the recipes I actually get around to making are fairly good. For our first wedding anniversary dinner, I wanted to make my husband and I a recreation of our wedding dinner, and Pinterest is where I found the closest recipes to it. It was well worth the time spent making the meal as it was finding the best recipes for the hors d'oeuvres and the main dish.

I’ve had mixed experiences with Pinterest. I’ve found the recipes with pictures from people who have tried them are usually the better ones. I try to go for those first.

I did not use Printerest but I will use it and try new recipes. I find it very interesting.

I really enjoy getting recipes from Pinterest. Although I agree that a lot of the recipes, when made according to the blog link, aren't to my liking. Instead, I've taken the approach to use it as inspiration for a dish and alter it to suit my taste. I'm horrible for not following a recipe!

I have found tons of great recipes on Pinterest! I love using it for food ideas. The only thing I don't like is that it's a little too easy to get carried away...I've collected so many recipes that there is no way I'll ever get to them all!

When I find a recipe on Pinterest that I like, I will read through the entire recipe before I make it. I often make small changes to it as I go. I have had more successes than failures through Pinterest.

I've made a bunch of different recipes from Pinterest. Most of the time they turn out, every once in awhile one fails pretty hard. Those could have been my fault though as I tend to make substitutions if I don't have what a recipe calls for.

I love Pinterest recipes purely because there are so many of them and the ideas are endless. I can never follow a recipe exactly, tho, and I end up adjusting it by adding a bit of this and a bit of that. Generally, I haven't had many fails but I think it all comes down to experience and how confident you are in the kitchen. Certainly, for a bit of inspiration, you don't get better than Pinterest!
