Pinterest has given momentum to a new kind of recipe – something you wouldn't find in an older cookbook. If I had to describe the ideal Pinterest recipe, I'd say the recipe would have only a few ingredients (the fewer the better); it would be easy to make; there would be a surprising twist; and it has to be photogenic. Bonus points if the recipe includes bacon, Nutella, or avocado.
These 10 recipes exemplify these points and then some. There are, of course, other trends that help these recipes to stardom – particularly paleo and gluten-free diets – but Pinterest has really pushed them over the edge. From baked eggs in avocado to two-ingredient Nutella brownies, feast your eyes on these recipes that Pinterest made into modern-day food stars.
