Until now, whenever I wanted to save a recipe that I found online, I’d either print it out or pin it to a Pinterest board. I am sure many of you can relate to the stacks of printed papers that can accumulate by printing the recipes you find interesting. And it never fails – when you’re ready to work in the kitchen, you can’t find the recipe you’re looking for. There is an easy solution to that – ZipList. I’ve recently partnered with ZipList to help you (and me) keep track of all those online recipes in your very own virtual recipe box.
It is easy to save your favourite recipes with ZipList. To access ZipList, simply click on the “Save” button on any recipe (directly beside the print button). You will have to create a new account if you don’t already have one.
Once you have clicked “Save”, a pop up window will open, showing that you’ve added the recipe to your recipe box. From there, you can either view your recipe box, or click on the “X” for that window to close.
When you visit your recipe box, it will show an image of the recipe, the name, as well as the website that you ‘clipped’ it from. This looks like you are still on The Baking Beauties, but you are actually on ZipList’s site – just click on “Home”, or any of the links in the top menu bar, to return to the Baking Beauties to continue browsing.
Once you have added a recipe to your recipe box, you will see the option to add the ZipList Recipe Clipper to your bookmark toolbar – this will make it easy for you to clip recipes from all your favourite food blogs and websites with one simple click.
You can also access your ZipList recipe box by clicking on “Recipe Box” in the top menu bar.
In addition to creating a virtual recipe box, ZipList also allows you to create a shopping list from the recipes in your recipe box. Since ZipList is also available as a mobile app on your smartphone, this means that you can access your shopping list when you are at the grocery store. Since I nearly always forget my shopping list on the fridge when I head to the store, this is a great feature! For the readers in the U.S. – you can also access deals and coupons through ZipList – who doesn’t love saving some money on groceries?
