New Features on MBA
You may have noticed a few changes around MBA in the last week or so (and if you heard a scream in the distance, yes, it was me as I pulled my hair out). We’ve been working ’round the clock to bring you some exciting new features that I hope will make My Baking Addiction even more user-friendly for you.
The first is an enhanced print box. In addition to a cleaner, sleeker box, we’ve also added:
– a Yield field: I will fill in how much the recipe makes wherever possible, and always going forward. Older posts may not have this, but we’re updating them as and when we can.
– Ingredients, Directions and Notes in clearly marked fields to make recipe reading easier.
What is ZipList?
ZipList is a free online recipe box. They have free mobile apps, or you can use their website. You can access your recipe box from your phone or computer any time you want.
How does it work?
Once you’ve signed up for a ZipList account (totally free), anytime you hit this little “save” button on MBA from now on, the recipe will be saved to your ZipList recipe box, and the ingredients will be added to your grocery list.
If you already have certain ingredients, you can easily remove some items, or change the quantities of others.
You can even mark whether or not you have a coupon for a certain ingredient, or specify if you need to go to a special store for one of them.
Food bloggers, let your readers save your recipes to an online recipe box and shopping list with one click. Explore ZipList’s free WordPress recipe plugin and more ways to make your recipes more findable.
Now you can have all your favorite recipes in one spot, plan a week’s worth of menus from them, and add the items you need for those recipes to your grocery list with hardly any effort at all.
Pretty cool, huh?
We hope that you like the new ZipList addition. We’ve been using it here at home for a few weeks now, and I have to say, I’m finding I make return trips for forgotten items from the store a lot less often, and menu planning is a breeze! We have a few more new features in the works, so definitely stay tuned.
