Starting today, we’ve made it easier to see all your Favorites, Try Soons and recipes you’ve added all in one place. Simply visit the new “My Recipes” tab on BigOven.com.
Now, when you mark Favorites or Try Soons, or post new recipes, you’ll only have a couple clicks to find them again. The new “My Recipes” tab lets you easily filter through your Try Soons, Favorites and recipes you’ve added (which combines recipes you’ve posted with those you’ve RecipeScanned), narrowing it down by category if you wish.
The general “Recipes” tab is where you’ll continue to find things like Recent Raves, Random Recipes and more.
Here’s what it the new My Recipes tab looks like:
By default, it shows a handful of them at a time.
To fetch the next page, just scroll to the bottom of the page and choose “More”:
You can use the filter bars at the top to locate the recipes easily. Note that your current selection is highlighted – in this case, I’m filtering on the “Try Soon” recipes that are a Main Dish:
Let’s say you’re tired of being stuck for dinner ideas. When you’ve got a few free moments, log into BigOven.com with your free account (or launch one of our free apps for iPhone, iPad, Android, Kindle Fire, or Windows Phone) – and mark a few recipes “Try Soon”.
Then, when you’re ready to cook, simply visit www.bigoven.com/myrecipes and click “Try Soons”, and then “Main Dish” or “Salad”, or whatever category you want, and you’ll see some great ideas.
When you’ve tried a recipe, and it’s a good one, be sure to flag it a Favorite. After a couple months, you’ll find you have about a hundred Favorites on the site that will help you get unstuck, wherever you are.
Be sure to categorize the recipes you post!
To edit any recipe you’ve posted, simply visit the recipe page on BigOven.com. Click on the Edit button on the right hand side (you’ll only see it when you’re logged into the site). Then, choose the recipe category and subcategory near the top of the screen.
We’d love to hear from you
I hope you find this new feature useful – I sure do! Remember, to get unstuck for dinner, just browse through BigOven.com (or any of our free recipe apps), and mark the recipes “Try Soon”. Then, you’ll never be stuck for great ideas to make.
