New Meal Planning Tool: Foodfolio

Since I started meal planning a few months back, I've been seeking out new recipes for easy dinners. I tend to look online, rather than in cookbooks. However, because I'd bookmark the recipes on different devices, I had trouble finding them again. Then I discovered a new tool: Foodfolio. I signed up for free & started collecting the recipes I was finding on sites like AllRecipes, or friend's blogs like Mama.Papa.Bubba.

Foodfolio runs on a freemium model, so you can use the basics at no cost, or subscribe for more functionality. So far, I'm quite happy with the basics. It's simple to add recipes--you can just copy the link to the blog or recipe site & Foodfolio will usually grab a photo, title, etc, for you. If it's one of the big recipe sites, Foodfolio will import the ingredients & method in so you can access it within the app. If the recipe comes from another blog, it'll just save the link & an image for you. You can type in your own recipes if you like. I'm a visual person, so I really like having a page of images that I can scan easily to access the recipes I've added.

You can share recipes & browse for new ones. Once you've added them to your foodfolio, you can organize them by tags or categories. There's also space to add notes if you changed things when you made it, or other details. Foodfolio felt pretty intuitive to me, I didn't spend a lot of time figuring out how to use it.

Do you use a recipe aggregator like Foodfolio, or do you prefer actual cook books? If you try Foodfolio out, let me know what you think!
