RecipeBook

·

RecipeBook is an experiment in social bookmarking that I put together recently. It's designed for bookmarking one specific type of object: recipes.

It's not finished yet, but here's what you can do so far:


  1. Create an account and sign in.
  2. Drag the bookmarklet found at the bottom of the front page to your browser's toolbar.
  3. Find a recipe that you like somewhere else on the web and run the bookmarklet to bookmark it. Add tags and any notes for yourself.
  4. Once you've saved the recipe, switch to the edit tab and scroll down to the imported HTML section. Click on elements that you want to keep, alt-click to remove elements. When you've selected all the important elements of the recipe, press Save and those elements will be picked out and displayed alongside your bookmark.
  5. While you're cooking the recipe, take some photos and/or videos and upload them to Flickr, adding them to a new set. Back in RecipeBook, attach the address of that set to the recipe.

Here's an example (the photos are unrelated, couldn't find a pancakes set yet).
