A cloud for my recipe collection?

Pepperplate is a web based recipe app storage. Now probably I’ll get to store and index all the recipes I like while  browsing the internet

or picking up my emails, twitter feeds  etc.

Pepperplate manages your recipes by allowing you to Import and edit recipes from the most “popular recipe sites”  by simply pasting a URL.

If that fav food site or blog of yours is not supported, you will have to either type in the recipe or do a cut and paste.

The manual entry screens are divided into fields that you  add the recipe text.

Enter the recipe screen by screen, Ingredients, instructions, notes and other.

Once you get the recipe entered, edit the recipe title to get this screen where you can add images etc.

Some fields didn’t seem to save the text, like the URL field, so I cut and pasted it into the “Notes” area.

Some recipes I just added a title, which is the only required info, and pasted the URL into the note area.

Now when I bring up the recipe from the index I can go to the URL and get the recipe.

So now I started with an index of 10 recipes

As far as I can see just by cutting and pasting from emails or web sites, Pepperplate formats

the recipe into this type of display if, you paste it into the correct fields.

There are other functions such as a menu grouping,  calendar planner, and shopping list that

automatically list the ingredient and groups them for a list.

Included is the familiar print , share and fav tagging functions and a sliding widget for scaling up

or down the ingredients amounts.

So far I’ve spent a bit of time entering 10 recipes, some full and some just URLs.

Since I’m not the fastest typist  Pepperplate seems to fit the bill so far.

With a huge amount of stored recipes on my system in the form of emails,

bookmarks, and saved URLS, hopefully Pepperplate will make them more accessible once

I take the time to get all of them in the cloud.

I had thought of just storing recipes and tagging them in this  blog, but I only post recipes I

have cooked and photographed . Being Web based, Pepperplate could add enhancements

like the possibility to change skins.

And if you have a mobile deviceimage the Pepperplate apps can:  

  • Carry your shopping list with you and add to it in store with your recipe collection (no internet connection required).
  • Monitor cooking time without being tied to the kitchen.
  • Track and update timers remotely.

 

 

 

 

 

Pepperplate sure beats looking in more than one place on my computer or using a search function for a recipe I want to make.

Most likely one day I’ll have a mobile device so my recipe collection will be more like an E-book which is more functional

in the kitchen.
