I’m so excited to share some helpful new features on Cookie and Kate. Finally, you can save your favorite recipes for easy access. Then, you can easily compile your grocery list from those recipes. How cool is that?
You can even order your groceries directly through this tool, if you’d like, or print a grocery list organized by grocery aisle. All of this is made possible through a partnership with Relish, the creators of this helpful technology. It’s all entirely free for you to use!
I hope these new features help you get dinner on the table with more ease. Keep reading and I’ll walk you through how to use them.
How to Save a Recipe
First, go to the recipe itself. Each post has a handy “jump to recipe” button that will take you to the right place.
To save a recipe, click the “save” button within the recipe itself. It will turn black to show that you’ve successfully saved the recipe, as shown below. (If this does not work for you, please clear your browser’s cache.)
You can also save the recipe by clicking the “shop ingredients” button below the ingredients. This button will save the recipe and open Relish at the same time.
Feedback, please: Would you prefer for the other “save” button to open Relish as well? I can make that happen.
How to Access Saved Recipes
To access saved recipes and open Relish, click the “saved” link. It’s located at the top of every page on this website. Or, as mentioned, the “shop ingredients” button under the ingredients will both save the recipe and open Relish.
How to Use Relish
Once you’ve opened Relish, I recommend logging into Relish. You can create an account specifically for Relish or sign in with a Google account. This way, your saved recipes are safe and you can access them on any device (your computer, your phone, your iPad, etc.). Look in the top left corner to see if you’re logged in.
In the lefthand column, you’ll see your saved recipes. On the righthand side, you’ll see their combined grocery list.
To remove a recipe from the grocery list, click the green grocery cart icon beside it. That way, it will stay in your saved list. If you’d rather remove it altogether, click the “remove” link.
If you are not seeing your list separated by grocery aisle, simply click the “aisles” link in the upper right corner.
To print your grocery list, click the “print” link in the upper right corner.
To go ahead and order your groceries, choose your preferred delivery service/grocery store in the dropdown under the grocery list. The delivery options will vary depending on your location, but often include Instacart, Wal-Mart and Shipt.
Here’s an Example of a Print Page
This page was created after I selected the “aisles” feature within Relish. Pretty great, right? Now you can print your list for a streamlined grocery store shopping experience.
