AZ Cookbook on Pinterest

The day has come! After some research into the previously-mysterious-to-me Pinterestland, I finally joined it. So, AZ Cookbook is now on Pinterest!

http://www.pinterest.com/azcookbook/

I am still exploring this social media phenomenon and there is a lot to learn, but so far I have been loving it. Would be super happy to see you follow my page, pin photos from my blog, and help me spread the word.

A few pointers in a nutshell, answering some of the questions you may ask:

1. What is Pinterest?

Pinterest is like your virtual information board, used to collect ideas and draw inspiration from. Instead of pinning things on the actual board hanging on your wall, with Pinterest you pin things you see on the internet onto your virtual board. Pin is your visual bookmark. To be able to Pin any photo, you should have a Pinterest accout. Bu no fret—it is super easy! When you click on a picture you want to pin and it is your first time doing so, you will be taken to Pinterest  and asked to join it (see photo 1). Once you join, you can create individual boards with pictures grouped together based on a particular topic (such as Sweet, Savory, or I wish I could eat this, or Crazy about Chocolate, etc. ). After that—pin anything you like and that has a Pin It button on it and choose a board you want to display it in.

2. How to  pin AZ Cookbook photos to my Pinterest board?

Very easy. You can pin any photo you see on AZ Cookbook. When you hover over a picture, a Pin It button will pop up. Click on it and you are done! That picture will be displayed on your Pinterest.

Happy New Year, guys! Hope you  had a wonderful celebration and are ready to start another beautiful year.

Also notice our brand new logo, designed by one amazing designer, Alina Bayramova. I am in love with it.

So, here  are some useful features the new blog  offers for your convenience:

1. You can browse the recipes by Ingredient, by Type, and by Monthly Postings.

2. Also note our Picture Gallery – my favorite addition to the blog!

3. Check out our Resources: How-To, Conversion, and Where to Find Ingredients.

4. Our new series – the AZ Cookbook Tablescapes - has its own place on the blog, too.

5. Don’t forget to join AZ Cookbook on social media. Click on the icons in the header to do so. Let’s keep in touch.

Please browse the blog and let me know what you think. We are still working on eliminating some small  glitches here and there and doing minor touch-ups to the design. But overall it is ready.
