An Improvement for You and a Blessing for Us

Does your recipe collection look like this?

I don’t know about you, but figuring out how to organize my recipe clippings has been a life-long challenge for me. It’s so easy to tear or print out recipes that sound delicious but not so easy to find them when I finally have all the ingredients and/or time to try them. That’s one reason, or more accurately, the main reason I started this blog–so all my recipes would be assembled in one place with an index. It has worked, as far as it goes, but I continue to collect new ones from the internet and various other sources. Messy stacks abound in my desk drawers.

So today, I’m excited to announce I’ve partnered with Ziplist, along with many, many other bloggers such as Kalyn’s Kitchen, Recipe Girl, and Simply Recipes to offer you a system to save your favorite recipes in one place.

Although you can still print my recipes on your printer, now you can access your Ziplist online recipe box by clicking the “Save” button inside each recipe box. After you sign up (it’s free), you will be able to sign in and add recipes along with a picture. As you can see below, you have several choices within the virtual recipe box itself. You can modify the recipe, add it to a menu planner, indicate ingredients you may need and check out deals at your local grocery store. There’s more but it’s quite easy to figure it out for yourself when you get there. Ziplist also offers a mobile app so you can quickly pull up your grocery list at the store. How cool is that?!

Speaking of changes, I told y’all a few months ago there were many changes coming our way this fall. One of them arrived slightly ahead of schedule but you wouldn’t know it by looking.

How did you know what my recipe collection looks like? I have so many clippings, torn out pages and scribbled notes, that sometimes I think I could paper my kitchen with them. Ziplist is so handy! And that new little grandson? Precious! :)

You are going to love Ziplist (although maybe not quite so much as you will love your other new surprise.) What a beautiful baby, congrats!

That must be one of the most beautiful newborns ever! congrats!

I am excited to see this Ziplist software available. I have probably thousands of recipes and am hesitant to pitch them. Family curse, I think, since my mom and sister are the same way.

Congratulations! Seth Jacob is adorable!
I’ve been using zip list for a while now and love that you are joining them. Even though I don’t fully use the zip list site, I still find it easy to save recipes there and stay organized.

Oh, Paula, what a beautiful boy! I know you are pleased as punch! Thanks so much for the ZipList information. I have been waiting for someone to do this, just didn’t know that it had been done. Now I can save all your recipes without bookmarking them! If only I could get my local Kroger to link up with them; I’ll have to badger them about it.

wow, Ziplist sounds like a dream come true. Recipes are so hard to keep track of. I’m hoping the URL to their site is their ‘name’ as I didn’t see a link. Can’t wait to try this out.
Hearty congrats on your darling new bundle! What a sweetie.

Hi Paula, what a great solution to all those cuttings and jottings, like most people I have too many that I’ve not yet tried but don’t want to throw out! I’ve also got too many cookery books, and I’ve found a great site at http://www.eatyourbooks.com where I can search the books on my bookshelf from my computer!
Thanks for sharing all your receipes and tips and… with us, Paula!

Paula November 25, 2012 at 6:51 am

Hi Andrea,
That is a new site for me. Thanks for the suggestion.

Congratulations. What a beautiful grandson! What a blessing to all!

I will check out the recipe thing. Thanks!

And, I’m switching to RSS feed instead of email for your blog. Trying to clean up email and readers.

Thanks and tons of hugs to the baby and everyone.
