Re: Keeping track of recipes ...

I like writing notes and mostly use 3x5 cards. Still each time I read a ladies magazine I try to find at least one recipe to clip and attempt. Too often I find myself fixing the same things over and over. The "try something new with each mag-rag" seems to get me out of my food rut and has opened up new vistas. For instance one recipe called for all sorts of tropical fruits (based on chicken) and because I had a fruit cup ... well, adaption is almost always necessary but I don't know that I'd have tried dumping a cup of mixed fruit on an almost done chicken thigh. Surprisingly (to me at least) it tasted very nice and I've since tinkered a bit.

Just a couple weeks ago I dropped off a 1949 cookbook at a marina swap library. I'd not used it for over a year and it was just "one more thing" aboard. So now it's not! I do still have Grandma's cookbook circa 1946 and a few loose pages from recipes I've cut from magazines. Tomorrow I'm going to shore so will try to roust up some ingredients and try something new.

For me, I'm just not as comfortable using an electronic version of a recipe. It's the notes in the margin that make a real cookbook a treasure, isn't it?

Good luck to you wind_magic and happy cooking afloat.

Re: Keeping track of recipes ...

Hi ladies,

This thanksgiving, my hubby and I spent our day with the live-aboards at our marina. It was a group of about 20 folks, and had a great time. I used my new pressure cooker to make a potato/green bean/bacon with cream of potato soup and mustard casserole. It was so yummy. Only took a few minutes to cook, too. Excellent. Will be doing a lot of cooking in it, I think. Also made Crockpot Rocky Road Cake that was decadent. It's actually better as a topping for ice cream, because it is gooey and hot and delicious. One of the guys said it should be called Sex in a Crockpot, or Crockpot orgasm. As for keeping track of recipes, I believe I will get me a regular small 3 ring binder and put them in that. For now! We're thinking about getting an iPad, and with that, we may be able to put everything on that.

I didn't know one could send info to their Kindle. Ours is an older version though…so maybe it doesn't. We bought our Kindles in 2011, before the Kindle Fire. It may not have the capabilities of the newer ones.

Hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and will enjoy your Christmas season as well.

Re: Keeping track of recipes ...

I'm glad to see this thread, I had JUST been looking for a recipe clipping app for Android. I see someone mentioned Paprika for iPad. Does anyone have a similar recommendation for Android? especially if it will generate a provision list for shopping!

Re: Keeping track of recipes ...

Hello Diane,

Yes, you can send info to your Kindle. I have one of the older ones, and send PDFs or other appropriate file-types to my Kindle on a regular basis. (Well not so regular now that I have the Android tablet which has become a substitute laptop, but not a substitute eReader - the screen, while excellent, is very hard on the eyes for reading.)

Log into your Amazon account and look at Your Account / Manage Your Devices and Personal Document Settings.

Do-able, but a bit kludgy compared to the newer color / touch interfaces on the Kindle Fire and the other tablets, iPad, Android, etc.

Merry Christmas, and I would LOVE to see those recipes!! (Do we have a section for that here on herSailNet? :-)

Re: Keeping track of recipes ...

We don't have a specific section for recipes and cooking on board, but here are some threads that you might like to browse:

The Two Pot Cook Off
When Two Pots Just Ain't Enough
anyone have recipes that can be made in one pot?

Also, if you scroll down to the bottom of the page, there are more in the Similar Threads section.

Sorry. We accidentally let Chef escape from the chat room. We'll try to do better.
