Do you see what I see?

There’s now a Recipe Box feature available on Sarah’s Cucina Bella. Thanks to a new partnership between Sarah’s Cucina Bella and Ziplist, there are some awesome new features that will make saving and using all your favorite Sarah’s Cucina Bella recipes even easier. All you have to do is sign up for a Ziplist account (if you don’t already have one) and you have immediate access to these great things:

Save Recipes

Now, you can save all your favorite Sarah’s Cucina Bella recipes to your own personal recipe box via Ziplist for easy finding. Simply click the “Save” button on recipes and add it to your recipe box. This appears on all new recipes on Sarah’s Cucina Bella and I am working to bring it to all recipes as well.

The new recipe format also makes it easier than ever to print recipes.

The best part of your recipe box though? It goes with you to many favorite sites and blogs. You can also save recipes from other favorite Ziplist-partnered food blogs like Bell’alimento, Baked Bree, Healthy Delicious, Fifteen Spatulas, Simply Recipes and more.

Best of all, Ziplist will create your grocery list for you — and allow you to pick and choose what gets added with just a few clicks. You can do this for individual recipes or for your whole weekly meal plan. My mind is blown by how much easier meal planning can be when you use these features.

    This looks like a great way to organize recipes. Is it free to download or a paid thing. It has such great features.
