New Features on Lisa's Kitchen

Many of you may have noticed the "Print this recipe" feature appearing on many of the recipes here at Lisa's Kitchen over the past several months. This will have come to the relief of those of you who had been asking me over the years for a quick and easy way to print recipes, and I will continue to add this function to older recipes as the opportunity arises.

And now I'm excited to let you know that there's another new feature that gives you the ability to save your favorite recipes from Lisa's Kitchen to a personal online recipe box with just one click, make meal plans, and then add the ingredients to a personal shopping list too with just another click. Hosted in partnership with ZipList, this service allows you to save recipes not only from this site but also from power food sites including Epicurious, Serious Eats, Martha Stewart as well as dozens of other popular food blogs. You can access any or all of the ingredients from your saved recipes from your computer or at the store on your mobile phone using a free app too … very convenient!

Add this recipe

Just click on the "Save Recipe" button whenever you see a recipe on Lisa's Kitchen that you like to add it to your own recipe box. Like the print function, I'll be adding this feature to older recipes over the next little while. Check the recipes from this and other sites that you've added at any time by clicking on the "Recipe Box" link in the navigation menu at the top of Lisa's Kitchen.

If you've used ZipList before, you already know how easy and convenient it makes meal planning and shopping. If you've never used ZipList before you'll be prompted to create a free account the first time you use it, but once logged in you'll have your recipes, meal plans, shopping lists and even local grocery coupons all in one place. And whether you're an old hand or a new user, I'd be interested in hearing your opinions on it — both what you like and what you think could be improved.

I'm also pleased to announce that Lisa's Kitchen is a publisher on Food2Fork, an attractive Pinterest-style aggregator of recipes from some of the most popular food sites in the world, including Bon Appetit, 101 Cookbooks, All Recipes, BBC Good Food, Epicurious, Serious Eats, Smitten Kitchen and many more, with new recipes added every day. I'm thrilled to have my recipes published on this site, and I'm sure you'll find all kinds of great food ideas there. Please go take a look, I think you'll like what you see.
