Sorting emailed recipes
I’m really chuffed I came up with this idea.
Because I think about food 24/7, invariably I'm on the internet finding recipes I want to cook. Like right now, I’m searching for vegetable mousses.
Sometimes I print them out, and I cannot tell you how many times I've left them on the printer, so most times I just email the recipe to myself.
The problem is working on multiple email addresses (2 x personal, 1 x work) I end up losing the recipe and have to search the net again.
Then there are times when I need to re-locate a recipe on the internet. (sometime lucky – sometimes not), so it seems like a good idea to store them somewhere that is easy to access and search.
Enter my idea.
I just setup a 4th email “evasrecipes” with Gmail, so now every time I wish to keep a recipe I can email myself at that address to try.
I’ve also set up labels, (baking/Japanese/bento/Chinese…)
And I just thought of it - I also have a location for Recipes that I’ve amended!
I'm proud of my idea, and now I'm feeling slightly more equipped to deal with the softcopy age
