I’ve partnered up with technology lifestyle expert Carley Knobloch, from Digitwirl, to bring you some fun yet informative videos on various products and services related to technology that will help you get organized and simplify your busy life.
I’m so happy Carley is reviewing a menu planning resource this week. After hearing what Carley had to say about Ziplist, I’ve spent the last hour or so checking it out. I love how simple it is to use and I was drooling over some of the yummy sounding recipes. Plus did I mention it’s free? What’s not to love about that!?! My only concern is the functionality of the Ziplist Recipe Clipper, which is a nifty tool that allows you to add recipes from around the web to your Ziplist recipe box. I found it didn’t work on some of the regular blogs I get recipes from however it does give you the option of manually adding favorite recipes if you’d like to. I can definitely see how the free app would be a huge time saver for busy families on the go. Anyway have a watch of the video below and let me know what you think. Is this a site and menu planning resource that you think would be helpful to you?
Notes from Carley:
Keeping track of recipes is a pain— they’re all over the place, yet never in the right place when it’s time to make dinner. And then, there’s the grocery list… which doesn’t do you much good when you head to the grocery store without it. Sure you could sift through all your cookbooks, or write “milk, eggs, bread” on your hand, but why, when there’s Ziplist?
Ziplist is a website and free app that is going to change the way you store recipes and shop for groceries. A total game-changer when it comes to simplifying mealtime. In a chicken rut? Well just pop onto Ziplist and peruse the hundreds of chicken recipes from some of the biggest names in food (Martha Stewart anyone?). With the click of one button the recipe is stored in a virtual recipe box, and with another click a grocery list of ingredients is instantly created for you. Ziplist is even kind enough to help you save money with coupons you can print before you go to the store. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg lettuce when it comes to Ziplist’s features— watch how Carley uses it to enhance her breasts. (That’s chicken, of course!)
