our recipe databasePosted: June 18, 2014
I continue to add recipes to our Living Cookbook application. I’m up over 900 recipes now. Of course we’ll never come close to making all of them, but then who ever has made all of the recipes in The Joy of Cooking? And the real woman who was the basis for the character in Julie & Julia is certainly the exception in her quest to cook all of the recipes in Julia Child’s The Art of French Cooking, if she’s not simply one of a kind.
The point is that we have a wide selection of recipes to choose from, depending upon our inclination and mood. One of the great things about Living Cookbook is that it is a fully functional database, so I can search on whatever criteria I like. Recently I have added a lot of saved searches, so not only do I have searches by the main ingredient (halibut, sea bass, shrimp) and cuisine (Italian, Mexican, Middle Eastern), but I have searches by author (Giada, Marcela Valladolid, Rachael Ray), source (the Food Network program The Kitchen), and date.
Living Cookbook really is a useful part of my cooking routine.
