Virtual Recipe Sharing is Del.icio.us!

For the grand finale of our Virtual Recipe Exchange series we have a delicious idea...

Do you find most of your recipes online? If so, this idea will surely inspire you, and you'll find the website address quite fitting!

Track Your Favorite Recipes Online with Del.icio.us & Share Them with Your Friends!

What is Del.icio.us?
This is the superhero version of a Favorites list. It keeps track of all of your favorite links and allows you to share them with your favorite people. Get this- you can access your Favorites from ANY computer! Definitely check this site out: http://del.icio.us/.

How does Del.icio.us work?
All you have to do is register and download the Del.icio.us application. The application will install a button in your browser. Then, when you are on a site that you want to record or share, simply click the "Save this" button on your Del.icio.us tab in your browser.

What does this have to do with recipe sharing?
If you and your friends want to see each another's favorite online recipes, here's what you do:

1. Everyone will need to sign up for a Del.icio.us account.
2. Save all of your favorite online recipe website links to your Del.icio.us list.
3. Log into your Del.icio.us account and click on "Your Network".
4. Add your friends to your network.

Voila! This is so simple and fun! Try it out and tell me what you think...

TIP: If you like looking for recipes online, then you should definitely sign up for a Free Account at Secret Ingredients so that you can have access to The Stock Pot, our recipe database. The recipes in The Stock Pot are contributed by members of the Secret Ingredients community who love to cook- just like you. The database is pretty new, but it is growing every day!

Don't forget! You can always use the Secret Ingredients website to do a group recipe exchange. Simply choose a group leader (a.k.a "Head Chef") to set-up your group's account. Each member of your group will be able to add his/her own favorite recipes by logging into our interactive website. Then, if you decide that you want a beautiful heirloom cookbook, Secret Ingredients will organize and print your cookbook for you!

I hope you have enjoyed our Virtual Recipe Exchange series. Please email us if you have any ideas that we should know about! Posted by Picasa
