Who are some good people to follow on Pinterest? I am finding a lot of the recipes that post are candy-filled, chocolate covered, oreos, or something like that which is not what I am looking for. I am looking for more "chowhound" types that pin. Thanks!

  1. Try searching by particular foods or types of cuisine, then you get better results. I'm just getting mine going but there are no desserts or candies for me.

    1. To be honest, I have *yet* to see any really worthwhile recipes there...it's more eye-candy in my opinion...the recipe photos LOOK good but once you click enough to finally see the recipe, it's usually junky ingredients, that I've seen anyway...and again, in my opinion...I have seen a few neat craft ideas there though.

      1. I only have 21 recipe pins so far, but with exception of the cupcakes baked in ice cream cones (which was more just for the pictures of the technique), none of them have "junky" ingredient lists. Granted, many recipes I've found on there do tend towards baking or "semi-homemade" type things, but I have found some interesting ones. The handful I've pinned myself (not repins) are either favorites or things I hope to get around to trying sometime soon. Maybe chowhounds should band together on Pinterest!

        1. I agree--search for what you're interested in. I have pins for all sorts of recipes. The baking ones, perhaps esp. in this season, seem easier to fall across, but there are plenty of others as well. Plus, you can start pinning outside recipes that you like and maybe others with like/like-quality pins/recipes will find you.

          1. pinterest ive noticed is much more easy-fix homemaker type things than chowhound-worthy. its good for one-pot and healthy dish ideas, as well as over the top unnecessarily indulgent type ideas, but a good, chowhound worthy post is sometimes hard to find!

            if you find a good person to follow though, let me know!
