How to Use the Recipe Notebook
There are lots of ways to use the Recipe Notebook. Create a list of recipes you want to try, share, or just remember. Create a list of your favorite recipes, or the ones you reference again and again! Consider renaming your notebook to make it work for your specific use.
Add New Recipes
- On the web: Just hit + to search the web for recipes from popular sites. Springpad will automatically pull in the photo, ingredient list, instructions and a link back to the original source. Or as you surf the web, use the Springpad browser extension or web clipper to save a recipe you come across on one of your favorite recipe sites or blogs. And if you want to add lots of recipes to this notebook that you’ve already saved, use bulk edit.
- On the go: Use Android Sharing to save a recipe with the Springpad Android app, or use the mobile Safari clipper to save a recipe you find on your iPhone or iPad. You can also save any recipe from anywhere just by emailing it to Springpad.
Organize & Access Your Recipes
- Tags: Use your own custom tags to organize your recipes – tags can be for course, cuisine, special holiday, main ingredient, favorites, or whether you have tried the recipe. Once you add a tag to one recipe it will show up in the navigation of your notebook. To quickly tag more items on the web app, just drag them onto the tag or drag the tag onto them.
- Flag: Use flags however you’d like – mark your most important items, or things you need to follow up on. Then, quickly view only your flagged items by selecting Flagged Stuff in your notebook’s navigation. Similar to tags, you can add flags on the web app with drag/drop.
