A President Obama’s family recipe pin on photo sharing website Pinterest has got everyone talking. Some like it and some don’t American President Barack Obama is up to something different this time — it’s nothing to do with politics issues, health reforms or world economy. Instead, the President is hooked on to the new social networking and photo sharing website Pinterest; and his Obama family chili recipe, pinned on his page, has become the much talked-about post these days.

Interestingly, the recipe has got mixed reviews from his followers. Dina Fraioli posted, “It’s not even chili! There’s hardly any chili spice in it! I want a super hot, hot, hot chili. I expect more President Obama!” Jenn Schrauben posted, “1 tablespoon chili powder? I’m not convinced this is chili.”

However, Thoa Trask wrote, “Wow! President Obama, your recipe is exactly like mine, except Wine! I definitely add Wine to mine now! Thanks so much! (sic).” Stacy Alexander posted, “Works well with textured vegetable protein, too, for those of us who don’t eat meat.” President Obama has over 9,000 followers on Pinterest.
