Tell me you're not as obsessed with Pinterest as I am.
I'd heard of the site from a few sources but finally joined when "following" certain people earned me extra entries in some online contests. Pinterest allows you to "pin" basically anything to categorized electronic boards, whether its a recipe, home decor items you covet, hairstyle ideas, or planning notes for your upcoming wedding. You browse the internet, or the boards of other users, and pin whatever strikes your fancy.
I'm finding the site to be a springboard for creativity. The art and DIY projects found on the boards of the people I follow are concentrated awesomeness. No need to spend hours picking through silly ideas that are outdated, impractical, or just plain unattractive. Pinterest displays the best of the best at a glance.
The best part about the recipes I've been pinning to my Yum Yum Recipes board is that they're all accompanied by a gorgeous photograph - since all pins are represented by a photo on your boards. I'm finding myself partial to the breakfast and brunch offerings across the web, but there are some awfully tasty looking cookie recipes too.
With the weather in Portland being very conducive to baking lately, I'm hosting a new giveaway in honor of my new found Pinterest addiction. The winner will score a batch of their choice of delicious cookies, selected from the recipes below.
To enter, just leave a comment below with which cookie you'd choose and why it looks the best. Make sure you're a follower of SaraPDX (by clicking "Join This Site" on the right hand side of the page). I'll ship within the United States (or hand deliver, of course). The contest closes TONIGHT at midnight!
