After numerous requests from some of my readers, I am thrilled to announce that LaaLoosh now has an exciting new feature! You’ll notice that each recipe now has a “Save Recipe” button. This button allows you to save all of your favorite recipes from LaaLoosh to your own, personal online recipe box. You can even save recipes from other websites too, so no more hunting from site-to-site to find your most loved recipes. Additionally, this feature lets you save the ingredients to each recipe to your own online shopping list. And if you already have some of the ingredients, you can easily remove items or change the quantities of others. You can even indicate if you have a coupon for a certain ingredient, or specify if you need to go to a special store! How fabulous is that!??
In order to bring you these new, helpful tools, I’ve partnered with ZipList. They are the superstars responsible for powering the online recipe boxes and shopping lists that you’ll see on many of the web’s biggest cooking sites and blogs, including MarthaStewart.com, The Joy of Baking and The Daily Meal.
So here’s how the new Recipe Box feature works: Once you create your free online recipe box with ZipList (yes, I swear, it’s totally free), you can start saving your recipes and shopping lists right away. And you can access your recipe box and shopping list from LaaLoosh, from ZipList.com, and from their free mobile apps so you have what you need on hand in order to plan your meals and grocery shop wherever you go. These features will help make it easy for you to keep all your favorite Weight Watchers recipes organized and easy to find. With the ability to have all your favorite recipes in one place, plan your menus, and add the items you need for those recipes to your shopping list with just a few clicks, healthy cooking should be a breeze!
Additionally, you’ll see that I’ve also added a Pinterest button at the end of each recipe. This tool helps you quickly pin your favorite recipes to your boards and share them with your followers. If you aren’t familiar with Pinterest, go and check it out asap. But be careful — it’s addicting!!
I’m really looking forward to hearing what you all think about these new features, and I hope it helps make your cooking/shopping/recipe planning a little easier :).
Thanks to all of you for your helpful suggestions and input, and here’s to a happy and healthy 2012!!!
