A few months ago I was invited to join a new website called Springpad. Springpad is a free online personal organizer that helps people get things done. From food and entertainment to parenting and managing the day-to-day, Springpad makes it easy for you to collect, use and share content from bloggers, brands and trusted friends to help organize your life. To date, the Springpad community of hundreds of food bloggers and thousands of members have already collected and shared more than 50,000 recipes and created more than 15,000 weekly meal plans.
They asked me to join because they were launching a new feature, Weekly Recipe Planner, which allows Springpad users use their web clipper tool or click on their partners’ “save it!” buttons to collect recipes from across the web. Once in Springpad, users can personalize and share their recipes by adding notes, photos and video and automatically generate shopping lists. Springpad also has a mobile web app that allows you to access your recipes, shopping lists and meal plans on the go.
I have updated all of the recipes on this blog with a Springpad “save it!” button:
When you click on this button a popup window will allow you to save the recipe to your Springpad (if you are a registered user) without leaving The Italian Chef. All recipes going forward will have the “save it!” button and I am working to add it to all of the legacy recipes on italianchef.com. I am excited to be adding this new functionality to our recipes because I think Springpad is a very nice application. It is quite easy to use and can really help you organize your online life.
