Never Forget that Key Ingredient in a Recipe Again

Don’t you hate it when you are missing a key ingredient for a recipe that you had your heart set on making?  Here’s a tip that will keep your favorite recipes at your fingertips, especially when you are at the grocery store.  It also saves gas by eliminating extra trips to the store.

If you are like me, it often is hard to remember all the ingredients for a recipe from memory, especially when I am at the grocery store and decide, on the spur-of-the-moment, to cook something special for dinner that night because something is on sale or looks especially fresh or just came in to season.

Here is a tip that I use so my favorite recipes are always at my fingertips.  Many of you have smartphones, so this will work for you too.  I have been posting a number of my favorite recipes to this blog so that I can access them from my iphone no matter where I am.  Most of you won’t have a blog, but you could do the same thing with Facebook.  Here is a link to a recipe for Crinkle Top Cookies that I posted on a Garden Club Facebook page.  http://www.facebook.com/RedbudGardenClub#!/RedbudGardenClub/posts/297441007043200

Another variation of this is to use your smartphone to look up a recipe (in general through Google) just to doublecheck that you have the main ingredients covered.
