Why We Exist
Anyone who regularly uses Pinterest knows how popular food and recipe pins are on the site. With beautiful pictures, cutesy names, and easy access to the source recipe, it just makes sense for busy moms and weekend bakers look to Pinterest for new food ideas.
Unfortunately, most Pinterest users are also intimately familiar with the infamous “failed pin”. We’ve all found a delicious meal or dessert pin promising we can become the next Gordon Ramsey, so we decide to try it. We spend $20 grabbing the ingredients, an hour preparing it, and then… the resulting disaster looks something our kids dropped on the floor.
According to 2017 stats published by Pinterest, there are over 15,000,000,000 food related pins on Pinterest. And that number grows 21% each year. That means there are 2.5 billion more entree, dessert, appetizer, beverage, etc. pins this year than there were last year.
We test hundreds of Pinterest recipes to bring you recipes that actually cook, bake, look, and taste like they are supposed to.
Wouldn’t you like to know which pins are worth the time, money, and effort to make?
What We Do
So, how do you separate the wheat from the chaff? How do you find recipes you can make that won’t waste your time, money, and patience?
We started Pinworthy Kitchen to address that specific problem. Pinworthy Kitchen is a test kitchen solely devoted to testing Pinterest pins. Every recipe you find on the site has been prepared in our kitchen, served to our taste testers, reviewed, and voted “Pinworthy”.
Since the beginning of 2018, the team at Pinworthy Kitchen has tested hundreds of Pinterest recipes. And we’re just getting started.
If you haven’t seen it yet, make sure to visit our Pinworthy Recipe Directory. The Directory catalogs our recipe test notes / reviews and makes it easy for you to find only the recipes that survived our testing and vetting . Each recipe review includes helpful tips & tricks to use on that recipe, and you’ll also find links to videos and food preparation tutorials that will make your time in the kitchen more enjoyable.
The PK Team
Our founder and head chef is Katherine Schneider. An avid baker, chef, and Pinterest user, Katherine recognized how challenging it is to find high-quality meals and desserts on Pinterest and recipe blogs.
By leveraging her husband Clint’s background as a computer scientist and his experience as founder of a successful B2B ecommerce business, Katherine built Pinworthy Kitchen as a platform to test recipes and share delicious food with the world.
Today, Katherine runs operations in the test kitchen and manages the team of recipe testers. Clint’s team handles technical aspects of the PK website and photographs all the food you see on the site.
