But really, truly, maybe it is foolish pinning, maybe it is user error, maybe it is a whole bunch of different things...
Sadly, there have been some MAJOR Pinterest fails up in this house.
My new motto is:
Never judge a recipe by it's pretty pictures.
Herein lies the problem:
Yummy recipes with ugly photos will most likely not get pinned.
Yucky recipes with lovely photos will get pinned and repinned over and over.
But when someone tries it, it fails them, they go so far as to unpin it, the other repins stay.
The yucky/ pretty recipe crouches, waiting to make kids cry, husbands sad, and potluck dish bringers embarrassed.
What is a girl who loves pretty pictures AND yummy food to do?
I'm not all for leaving comments below the fails. It's just not my thing. Maybe it is a great recipe. Maybe I just have weird tastes. Maybe I made a fatal error while preparing it.
However, I am for all for having a board specifically reserved for Pinterest successes.
Will you join me?
Save the world from pretty/ yucky food?
Although it's pretty funny when your kid says "maybe you should unpin this, mom."
I love how Jessica from Keeping up with the Johnson's hosts a Pinterest Test Kitchen linky, where you can share your fails or successes. I'm thinking that Mississippi Sin is on the menu stat. Yummmmmm.
