Pinterest Tips-Finding the Original Source

Have you looked at Pinterest and found a
beautiful picture of food or other great idea 
and needed the recipe or tutorial  from the original source?
(example: picture of Lemon Brownies 
on Pinterest)
Lemon Brownies!
                                                                Lemon Brownies!
Here's what I do. I thought everybody did it this way but lately I've seen lots of directions for finding the original source on Pinterest. Most of them involve 5 or 6 steps. Yikes!. Most of them involve saving images onto your computer, dragging and dropping the image, opening folders, lots of clicking, followed by more dragging and dropping of images. Too many steps for me! I like things easy. I just click on the picture and it will take me to the source.
(Rita's Recipes is the original source)
If it just goes to another pinner, I click on the
 picture again until I get to what I'm
looking for. Works for me!

I also try to pin only to the original source 
(unless I'm in a pinning frenzy) so that others
 looking at my pins can easily find the
information. Hope this helps.

to get the recipe.
