Have you ever seen a recipe on Mel’s Kitchen Cafe you wish you could save somewhere? You know, like an online personal recipe box to view later? Well, wish no more! The day has finally come.

Thanks to a partnership with Ziplist, the same company who powers the recipe boxes behind MarthaStewart.com, WholeLiving.com and WomansDay.com (not to mention a lot of other food bloggers), you can save recipes from any of those sites and the recipes all get saved to the very same recipe box. Cool, huh?

To assist you in saving recipes from MKC, I have added a Save Recipe button below each and every recipe.

When clicked, you’ll be able to save the recipe to a personal recipe box that will be home to all the recipes you want to save.

If desired you can add the ingredients from those recipes to an online shopping list where you can delete the ingredients you already have on hand…

…and then email the list to yourself or print to take with you to the store!

To access the Recipe Box or Shopping List at anytime, click on the dropdown links on the navigation menu under Recipe Tools.

Most of the recipes on my site should be formatted correctly to upload wondrously into the recipe box, but I appreciate your patience as I work through some of them to add appropriate titles, etc.

If you’ve never saved a recipe to a Ziplist powered website before, no worries, you’ll be prompted to personalize and set up your own personal recipe box and will soon be on your way to creating a haven of your favorite recipes.

Now go…start saving some recipes! And have some fun while you are at it!

    Thank you for using Ziplist. It makes it so much easier to set recipies aside to try. And thanks for haveing good family meals that I can be proud to serve. Yesterday I saw a dish on a website that was made from Tater tots, cream of mushroom soup and hamburger! That’s not real food! Thanks again. K

    I love Zip list! I just discovered your blog, so I’ll be zipping a lot! Thank you for making this option available. It is so much easier when you’re in the grocery store having the aisle debate wondering if you have all the ingredients. Thank you, thank you , thank you!

    A recipe box question: When I click on the “Recipe Box” option under the “ZipList” tag, none of my saved recipes show up. But if I click on the “ZipList” tag itself, ZipList shows the button to go to my recipe box, and then I can see all my recipes. This happens on my iPad, on my Mac with the current iOS (both running Safari), and on my Mac running the current Internet Explorer under Windows 7. What am I doing wrong?

  7. Mel says:

    Hi Anita – the Ziplist links aren’t currently working in the main navigation bar but they should be fixed soon and then you’ll be able to access your saved recipes. Thanks!

    My saved recipes (title and pics) show up when I click on the ziplist but will not open the actual recipe. How do I access those?
    Thanks

    do you have a good way to freeze peaches?

  11. Mel says:

    Hi Claudia – I peel them and then remove the pit and slice them. I lay them in a single layer on a baking sheet and freeze. Then, once frozen, I pile them in a freezer bag and keep them in the freezer that way.

    Hi Mel!!
    Todays the first time I’ve seen your website. My sister sent me a delicious recipe from it. I was wondering if you had some yummy diet recipes. I’ve started to eat healthier and swim so I can drop some lbs. So far its working but I’m in need of some new low fat low carb dinners. Hope you can help me!!!
    Thanks,
    Kelly

    Hi Mel,
    I have been using your site for a couple of years now and started using the recipe box a while ago, although I often forget about it and find my recipe just by doing a search or going to your recipe button. I have found I can only access my recipe box when I add a recipe to it. I just tried to access it and cannot. The navigation bar you show on your Ziplist tutorial does not look like what I see. The top of your page has your cute little “tried and true recipes baby” button and the following: ‘About’, ‘Recipes’, Kitchen Tips’, ‘The Best Recipes’, Menu’s’, and ‘Ziplist’. Nothing drops down from any of the buttons for more options like your tutorial shows. Help! ;-)
