Pinterest is making it easier to find recipes you may actually attempt in the kitchen. 

The social media company recently introduced several new food search features on its official blog.

First, users can reportedly search for recipes with more detail. Sorting can now be based on things like total time for prep and cooking, diet and ingredients you actually have in your kitchen at that very moment.

Another upgrade: Pinterest’s Lens function. The social media company says users can now point the app camera at a meal or upload a photo to populate similar recipe suggestions.

And finally, the feature I will likely value the most: Reviews.

Pinterest says when people search for recipes, they’ll now be able to see ratings from places like epicurious, Martha Stewart and the Food Network. A scroll down the post will also reportedly show people’s tips and comments regarding the meal.

Pinterest notes that food is the king of categories on the platform, with more people searching for and testing out recipes.
