You know we like to make things quick, cheap and easy here at organized CHAOS online, and this time we hit the mother load! In the past, when we shared a recipe with you, you’ve only been able to print it. You have asked us if we would include a feature that would allow you to save the recipe. You also asked if we would include a grocery list with each recipe. It’s always want, want, want with you. (Oh my gosh, we’re so kidding!!!)
We have been looking for a way to make this happen, and we finally found it. We have partnered with Ziplist. It’s a FREE web-based service that will allow you to:
- Save our recipes to your own recipe box that you can access from our website.
- Save recipes from other websites to your recipe box
- Have your saved recipe ingredients added to your grocery list (which you can edit)
- Save your favorite grocery stores, then immediately have access to their current specials
- Create menus
There is a mobile app available for both iPhone and Android, so you can take your grocery list with you, and check items off as you buy them. I’ve used other mobile grocery lists, but Ziplist is by far my favorite. (Nope, we’re not getting a kickback from this service…we just love it!) Did I mention that it’s FREE?
So how does it work?
Tomorrow we start our “89 Days of Pumpkin” recipe series (I KNOW! We can’t wait either!). You’ll notice that our recipes now include a “Print” button, and a blue “Save Recipe” button. If you don’t need to print the recipe right away, you can click the blue “Save Recipe” button. You will then be prompted to create an account with Ziplist. It’s quick to do, and again…it’s FREE. Once you create your account, you’ll not only be able to save organizedCHAOSonline’s recipes, but recipes from a ton of other sites like Martha Stewart, epicurious and bon appetit. All your saved recipes will end up in the same place – your personal recipe box!
Once you’ve created your account, any time you click the blue “Save Recipe” button, you’ll be able to save the recipe to your online recipe box, then add the ingredients you need to your weekly shopping list.
You can access your recipe box at any time through the “Recipe Box” link on our site.
Ziplist also provides you this cool little button that you can drag to your computer’s bookmark toolbar so you can quickly save recipes as you come across them!
When you ask, we listen. We hope you love this little tool is what you’ve been looking for, and that you love it as much as we do. Spend some time wandering around their site to see all the other cool things you can do. Fill up your recipe box with our scrumptious pumpkin recipes starting tomorrow.
Are any of you already using Ziplist? It would be great if you shared your experiences with our readers in the comment section below.
