I remember when I first joined Pinterest there were only a few bloggers I knew who were on it. Before long, I started getting emails saying another Facebook friend joined. And another. And another. Before I knew it, just about everyone I knew was on Pinterest. It blew up like Facebook did back in the day.
I love the concept of Pinterest. So many ideas in one place! For someone who loves food, it’s fun to see all the recipes that circulate and find new ideas. It’s risky, though, right? Just because a friend pinned a recipe doesn’t mean it’s going to be good.
I’ve had a few emails and friends ask me about my Food Inspiration board on Pinterest. Have I tried all of the recipes? Do I recommend them? The answer is no, I haven’t tried them all. Not even close. The recipes on my Food Inspiration board are a mix of those that inspire me to try something similar, recipes I’d like to try, recipes that I’d like to try to healthify, and recipes that look good but I’ll probably never make.
The questions helped me realize that I should have a food board dedicated to only recipes I’ve made. A review board of sorts that shows what’s worked or not worked with online recipes. So I created a new board, “Food I’ve Made”, where I am only pinning recipes that I’ve recently made and had success with. I’m including food from other websites as well as my own. I figure the food from Happy Healthy Mama may be a recipe some of my followers never saw or may highlight a recipe some have wanted to try but forgot about (that happens to me on other blogs all the time).
Either way, I thought this new board would be helpful, and I hope you’ll follow me if you don’t already. Pinterest is a fun way to share ideas and make each other’s lives a little easier.
Now….I am asking for your help. I am anticipating having more time for recipes soon, but need some creative inspiration. I’d love it if you’d leave a comment and tell me what kind of recipes you’d like to see more of in the coming months on Happy Healthy Mama. More quick and easy dinners? Healthy desserts? Snacks? Kid-friendly fair? Or even give me specifics like a classic recipe you’d like me to try to make healthier.
I know many of you read my blog in your email, but I would so appreciate if you’d take the time to click over and comment today to let me know what you’d like to see. I want to give you what you’re looking for, but I need to know what that is! Pretty please? Thank you for reading; I so appreciate that you are here.
Have a fantastic weekend!
