To organize your cookbook collection you may have shelves for different kinds of books, fold over pages, use yellow stickies, paper lists, books with notes - or you keep it all in your head.
Whichever method you use, it just got simpler. You can keep track of recipes and books by just tagging them with a Bookmark. Once you create a Bookmark you can use them to narrow down your searches.
For books you might want to use Bookmarks to:
- Keep track of cookbooks in different locations - even different shelves
- If you have the same cookbook in 2 locations - just Bookmark it with each location tag
- Favorite books - add and take books off as you like
- Books you have on loan from the library - an easy way to include these books in your search and then easy to delete when you return them
- Books you loan to friends - easy to keep track of them
For recipes you might want to use Bookmarks to:
- Create a list of recipes for a menu for a dinner party, social gathering or just the meals for the week
- If you grow your own fruit or vegetables and are always looking at ways to use them up then create a Bookmark that you can tag a recipe with for plums, zucchini or whatever as you see them come up in your searches
- Browsing through a new cookbook we always see recipes we like the look of - tag your recipes as you go with a Bookmark with names like Comfort Food, Sunday Lunches,Must Dos - the list is endless
- Same for your magazines - use Bookmarks rather than yellow stickies
- There are also default Bookmarks "I want to cook this" and "I cooked this" - the chef icon next to each recipe title will change color to depict the status of the recipe.
