Pinterest is evil.
Okay, that’s kind of a lie. Like many people, I’m more than a little obsessed with it.
Of course I love it, but then I get sucked in on a lazy Sunday afternoon like today, and the next thing I know, I realize I’ve pinned recipes for 44 main courses, 25 snacks and sides, 34 desserts, 11 breakfasts and brunches, and 18 pitcher drinks and cocktails. And I haven’t tried most of them and so far don’t have any concrete plans to do so.
I like organized things that have a purpose, not random chaos, so you can imagine that having 132 recipes floating out there (on Pinterest alone!) that I want to try but have no plans to do so kind of makes my skin crawl. I know my collection of pins isn’t nearly as extensive as many, and I’m not judging anyone who has more and is fine with that. But for me, it’s anxiety-provoking. I guess there’s no more hiding my OCD tendencies now.
So with that, I’ve decided it’s high time to pledge that I cook my way through those recipes, a la what I did with last fall’s recipe trends series. My goal is to cook at least one Pinterest recipe a week, but hopefully more, and I’ll share many of them with you all to help keep me accountable.

What about you? Are you worried your Pinterest boards may spin out of control?
