I have some exciting news. You’ve probably already noticed that the recipes on Sarah’s Cucina Bella are appearing in an updated format with more info –like cooking time. Well, that’s part of some new features that I decided to implement to make Sarah’s Cucina Bella even better in 2013.
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:
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.
Plan Your Weekly Meals
Once you’ve started saving your favorite recipes to Ziplist, you can use those lists to create your weekly meal plans in just a few clicks. It’s a fast and easy way to make meal planning really work for you and your lifestyle. You can even sync your plan with other calendars.
Look for the My Meal Planner link to get started. Then start adding the recipes to your plan and sorting them into what day you’d like to eat them. Once you’ve created the perfect meal plan for your week, all the recipes will be easy to find and use.
Create Your Lists
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.
I hope you all love the new features on Sarah’s Cucina Bella. I’d love to hear how you are using these features and if you find them as useful as I think they are. Leave me a comment or drop me a line! Thanks so much for reading!
