1. Add personal notes to jog your memory
Every day of the week, you can add personal notes to clarify certain details about a dish that you want to cook and that’s not linked to a specific recipe. For example, on Tuesday, you could indicate “make a sandwich with Monday night’s leftover chicken,” or jot down the side dishes that don’t require a recipe, such as steamed vegetables or a green salad.
2. Provide reminders
There’s nothing more annoying than coming home from work and realizing that you forgot to defrost the meat for dinner. When you plan your menu, think of setting alerts on your mobile phone or in a virtual calendar to remind you to prepare a marinade the night before or to pick up a last-minute ingredient at the store.
3. Specify your requests in the search bar
You can search for recipes on our website based on ingredients you have at home. All you need to do is type them in the search bar, separating them with a comma (e.g.: tomatoes, cheese, basil). The search engine will suggest recipes that use those three items.
4. Use the filters to search for recipes
Did you know that, when typing “chicken” in the search bar, you will get 556 recipe suggestions? Instead of searching for something too vague, use the filter next to the search bar. Indicate the recipes you’re looking for by type of meal, dish or cuisine. You can also include ingredients that you have at home or exclude those you don’t feel like cooking with.
5. Make quick additions to My menu
When you’re browsing a page that contains many recipes, such as in our category sections or after a search, you can just click on the “+” icon on the image to add it to your menu, without having to open the file.
6. Add ingredients to your grocery list from My menu
When you click on the three vertical dots to the right of your menu, choose the option “Add to my grocery list” from the pull-down menu to see all the ingredients. You can add them to your grocery list directly from this window.
