GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — If you thought you saw a lot of photos of food on social media before, it's a veritable potpourri of pictures since the pandemic outbreak.

We asked our viewers to share photos of the dishes they've been making at home since restaurants' dine-in services have been shuttered. Here are a few of them.

You can add your pictures, and recipes if you're willing to share, on our FOX 17 Facebook page.

Jenna Tardiff wrote that she made this bread "with a FB live video explaining how to make it. Plus, I’ve made blueberry muffins and strawberry shortcake. Trying to not make too much or else I’ll gain a lot of weight! Lol."

Britt Starr also was in a baking mood. She made "homemade Amish bread and cinnamon rolls so far ❤."

Nikki Lambrix made a tasty soup to perfectly pair with that tasty bread! She wrote that she is "pretty proud of all of the new things I've been cooking. Tonight is hamburger soup and buttered bread."

Meanwhile, Brock Reece lined up these tasty pork sliders for his family.

Don't forget. You can call off the cooking on Tuesday nights and order takeout or delivery from one of the many local restaurants trying to stay open during the pandemic. You can see a list of #TakeOutTuesday restaurants here.

And full disclosure, the photo that leads this article was made by yours truly. It's a recipe of ancho caramel-glazed pork tenderloin, with BBQ black bean hash and onion crisps from chef Chris Santos. I'm happy to share the recipe if you want it (
