10 Easy Pinterest Recipes I’m Dying to Try

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Waterloo chapter.

While I enjoy cooking, it’s certainly not a skill that comes naturally to me. More often than not, I’m the person who closely follows a recipe in the kitchen, rather than leaning into my experimental and creative side. For that reason, one of my favourite pastimes is scrolling through Pinterest, saving recipes that look both amazing to eat but also seem pretty straight-forward. 

If you’re anything like me, always on the hunt for something new to try, check out some of the recipes I currently have saved on my Pinterest board! There’s no set theme I ever have in mind; it ranges from soups to desserts! I’m really hoping to get to them soon, because they all seem amazing. 

Note: There are some vegetarian and vegan recipes on this list, but not all of them fall into this category. Some recipes also include allergens like nuts and berries. You have been warned!
