My Recipe BoxWhen you’re perusing‘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.

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.

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.

  2. Mary Kay says:

    Haven't enough people (including me) mentioned that their existing Recipe Box is impossible to find that some web guru can't find a more obvious place to find it…like the home page maybe!

  3. Babs says:

    I absolutely hate the FN website makeover. It is so NOT user friendly!!! I can never find my recipe box with all the recipes I have saved!! Please fix it or put it back the way it was. Apparently I am not the only one that feels this way.

    I think it's awful !! FN , u keep revamping but u make it more difficult! Go back to the original

  7. Derek says:

    I think that I'm done using FN all together. This new site is unwieldy and difficult to use. All I want to do is print a recipe so I don't have to have my computer in the kitchen. But — sparing the details – I can't seem to accomplish this. This site used to be such a great resource. I'm truly disappointed.

  8. GrandmaStJean says:

    Please go back to being able to print only receipts. I do not like the way the website is setup right now. It seems to take forever to get to what you want. I would like to be able to print out my recipes in the size I want and then put it in my photo books. That way I do not have to turn on my computer and I can take them with me when I cook some other place.

  9. Judy says:

    I agree with many of the above comments. FN has made it more difficult to find episodes, recipes etc. and I hate not being able to print what I want. Sad, sad, sad.
