Pinterest is best known for its beautiful images. The social-media site is basically a one-question test: What is most aesthetically pleasing to the eye? Winners will get the clicks, repins, and likes.
There are fabulous fashions, glittering jewels, scenic vistas, and lavish rooms. But what about the food?

Spaghetti Threaded Through Hot Dogs
Okay, so we know this combo might appeal to kids. But still–squiggly pasta coming out of cut-up hot dogs? Ick.
Cheddar, Bacon Ranch Pull-Apart Bread
