Introducing FoodNetwork.com’s Newest Feature: Recipe Box

by in Community, News, November 4th, 2013

My Recipe BoxWhen you’re perusing FoodNetwork.com‘s vast collection of recipes, you may very well come across towering cakes and comforting casseroles, simple soups and showstopping steaks, and centerpiece roast chickens and satisfying cookies — all in one visit. But with so many tasty how-tos for the taking, how are you to remember which recipes in particular you know you want to make, and how do you keep them organized? Enter FoodNetwork.com’s newest tool: Recipe Box.

It’s no longer necessary to print out page after page of recipes, then staple them together and stash them away in a drawer. With Recipe Box, not only can you sort your favorite recipes by dish, cuisine, meal type, menu, chef and more categories, but you also can create shopping lists based on any or all of your preferred recipes and access them from both Food Network’s website and your mobile phone.

The first step to creating your Recipe Box is registering to become a member of FoodNetwork.com. It’s free and easy to sign up, and the process — consisting of an email and password entry — takes mere moments; you can also register with your social media accounts, like Facebook or Google+. If you’re an existing member and you’ve already started collecting recipes in your Recipe Box, those saved recipes will have been moved to the new Recipe Box.

My Recipe BoxOnce you’ve created a profile and are signed in, simply click the Save to Recipe Box link on the side of any recipe. You can create customizable folders for themed recipes, like Thanksgiving-inspired eats, or just pool them in All My Recipes.

My Recipe BoxTo make the process of actually planning to cook these recipes simpler, you can add ingredients to your Shopping List, and from there tweak the list so that it doesn’t include ingredients you already have. You can also add miscellaneous goods — say, those needed for no recipe in particular — then email yourself the complete list to easily reference later.

My Recipe BoxBy hovering over any recipe in your recipe box, you have the option of putting its ingredients on your shopping list, adding the recipe to a folder, plus sharing, deleting or viewing the recipe.

My Recipe BoxIf you come across a must-save recipe on a site other than FoodNetwork.com, you can add it to your recipe box as well. After clicking on Add a Recipe from a Site, just copy and paste the URL into the field and select Import Page. You’ll be able to make notes about the recipe and save it to any of your folders.

With Thanksgiving less than a month away, it’s not too early to start planning your holiday feast. You can get a jump-start on menu development and make grocery shopping easier with the help of Recipe Box. Browse Thanksgiving Central, Food Network’s one-stop Turkey Day headquarters, for the ultimate in recipe inspiration, and start planning today.

    I don't visit the site as often as I used to, but when I do, I find it not to be user friendly! It seems to be very disorganized! I am trying to find my recipe box and can't! Used to have a "My Recipe Box" link very handy on home page to use. Want to find my old recipes and add some new, but I am getting frustrated. Tried to click on link to try new recipe box, but it did not work. Wow! Who's in charge…and are you listening to us??

    What the hell! What have you done ? This app used to be the best. I have a terrible time finding anything including my saved recipes. This is not user friendly any longer

    I have read a huge number (126) of comments complaining about the idiot who decided to change the webpage layout, but nothing has been done. Obviously, the person who designed the new page must be hiding the negative comments. Maybe someone can kick this upstairs to corporate and they could restore the ability to save recipes to the recipe box feature. Here is the original announcement by Maria Russo and the comments. http://blog.foodnetwork.com/fn-dish/2013/11/intro

    Either Mx. Russo is no longer at FN, has not read the comments, or just doesn't care. I am sure I will get a bot comment about "thank you for your input. We will respond blah blah.

    hope not.
