The Internet is a strange place. While perusing recipes online, you’ll probably find a simple chicken recipe right next to some insane cookie-cake-doughnut-muffin dessert. It’s a scary, beautiful place to be. The gatekeeper to this world is undoubtedly Pinterest. It’s where we can organize our hopes and dreams, and that recipe roundup of mug cakes we stumbled upon.
The Kitchn has found a cozy home in this brave new world, and Pinterest has become our good friend. Pinterest has also shown us what some of our audience wants most. From bacon-wrapped potato bites to a no-bake strawberry icebox cake, here are The Kitchn’s most-pinned recipes of all time.
If you’re a coffee lover, then chances are you drink up all the coffee that you make. But on the off chance you ever have leftover brewed coffee, you don’t need to throw it out. Just like coffee grounds can be put to use in a variety of ways, like compost and facial exfoliant, brewed coffee can be used in a lot of different ways around the house.
Here are nine things you can do with a pot of brewed coffee, or at least a few leftover tablespoons.
Salad bars and the airport quick-grab kiosks have done the Spinach and Strawberry Salad a real disservice, I think. Done well — done properly — it’s easy to see why this salad is such a classic. The greens are crisp and tender, and they should be slicked with just enough dressing to be interesting without overwhelming. The strawberries give a juicy burst of sweetness, the cheese adds its luxurious creaminess, and the almonds bring it home with some much-needed crunch.
This is the kind of salad that is fancy enough for a Mother’s Day brunch, but also easy to whip together on a weeknight. For either scenario, and all those in between, Spinach and Strawberry Salad will serve you well.

“This recipe is bursting with flavor! It is fresh and spicy, and did I mention easy? This is the closest thing to restaurant style salsa you will find. The jalapenos and hot pepper sauce (e.g., Tabasco) add spice to the mix and the cilantro, lime juice, and green onions create freshness.”
