Looking for an online recipe box?
This is major. I stumbled on the most wonderful website for those of us who collect recipes on the web! I have recipes stored on so many websites that it’s hard to keep track of what is where. Food.com can access recipes from all of my favorite sites, including Food and Wine, Epicurious and Food Network. I can now store them in one recipe box instead of four or five different ones. This may not seem like a big deal, but for those of us who love to cook, I assure you that it is.
It may take a while to sift through the recipes at Food.com to find all the ones you already have stored elsewhere, but I think it’s well worth the effort. Once you have them in Food.com’s recipe box, you can organize them into collections. I plan to divide mine by dish–salad, appetizer, pasta, meat, chicken, cookies, etc. Food.com also has a toolbar which you can download to your browser. If you find a recipe you want to add to your recipe box, you can drag it to the toolbar any time without having to open the entire application.
Best of all, if you are like me and your memory seems to be in a constant brain freeze, you don’t have to worry about whether you already have a particular recipe in your box. Food.com won’t let you add the same recipe twice.
Check it out and let me know what you think!
