Personalized Online Recipe Box at OBB!

CATEGORIES: General News

We’re excited to let you all know about a great new feature on Our Best Bites!  You’ll notice at the end of each post there is now a “Save Recipe” button.

This allows you to easily save your favorite recipes from Our Best Bites to your own online recipe box! You’ve all been asking for something like this for a long time so we’re thrilled to be able to make it happen!

Another great thing is that when you click the “Save Recipe” button, you’ll have the option to add the recipe to your recipe box and also to a shopping list. My poor recipe box is empty right now 🙁  But that will soon change!

We teamed up with ZipList to make this project happen; they power the recipe boxes and shopping lists you find online at,,, and more.  You can save recipes from any of those sources, and many others, and they all will get saved into your recipe box here.  Fantastic, right?!

If you want to access your online recipe box or shopping list from Our Best Bites, just click on the icon you see in our sidebar to the right- directly below our lovely photo and about us section.

Ready for the last bonus??  There are free mobile apps!

So go click on the icon right now and create your own recipe box; we’re excited to hear what you think!  We also wanted to note that we’re in the process of making all of our recipes formatted for easy printing.  Right now, older recipes are in a different format and we’re slowly making our way through those.  The recipe box app should work on those old recipes as well, but we’re going to hurry and get them all formatted to avoid any kinks and make things easier for you!  Okay, go play!


  1. YAY! I had been bookmarking all the OBB recipes I wanted to try, but I had to quit when my bookmarks list got too long for my screen. This makes my life so much simpler! Thanks!

  2. I LOVE this! There are several of your recipes that I got back to time and time again. This will help save time from searching through the recipe index. Rock on!

  3. The recipe box is cool. Mobile Apps sealed the deal! Love your site, love your recipes, and I love that I can now take them ON THE GO!

  4. This is fantastic! I love not having to look at every recipe and compile my own shopping list from a bunch of them.
    I ESPECIALLY love that you put the link on the shopping list for how to “make my own” of certain ingredients…the only problem is that on mine it said “click here to make your own” and there was nothing to click or direct me…am I missing something?

  5. I AM SO EXCITED!!! I’ve tried several online recipe sites and HATE putting in all the recipes from other sites myself. This is Fabulous! thank you!!!

  6. Wow! This is great! I always print up my favorite recipes and then can never find
    them when I want them. Now I will know just where they are! Thank you!

  7. Oh my gosh! This is the greatest thing ever! I was thinking about something like this for a while, but I never thought it would happen. So awesome!

  8. Hooray!! This is an awesome feature!!!!!!! Seriously, I have a whole folder (including subfolders) in my bookmarks just for your site 🙂

  9. Thank you for this! I so love all of your recipes on here because they aren’t time consuming or hard to do. My husband has loved all the recipes I’ve made from your site. PLEASE come out with your second cookbook by December so I can ask for it for Christmas! Thanks!

  10. What a great idea! I love it when people come up with things that make my life so much easier, my only problem is, I’m afraid that your whole website will be saved! I guess I will never have to come up with an idea for dinner on my own again! Hooray! Thanks!

  11. Ah Sara, can I come live next door to you? You are so creative and make the best out of any situation! This looks delish and your story about the pirates made me snicker! lol.

  12. So is the app already available? I’m super confused about that part, and maybe I’m just really slow or totally missed how to get it.

  13. Huzzah! I was hoping you’d come up with a mobile app soon. I’ve got a stack of OBB printed recipes and often browse on my phone in the kitchen but this will be much easier to read.

  14. So excited, especially about reformatting the old recipes for easier printing. I’m fairly new to your site and I’m still trying to make my way through all the recipes. The quick and easy print button is so much better than cutting and pasting recipes into Word. Thanks so much!

  15. Soooo happy! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve looked at your site from my phone at the grocery store!! An app will load so much faster, which is fabulous when my three kids are pulling things off the shelves 🙂

  16. LOVE it! So happy about the mobile app 🙂 although I had already made a shortcut to several of your recipes on my Iphone (cowboy quesadillas, sloppy joes, perfect frosting, etc)

  17. I have a question about the interface that comes up with your website. It does not give an option for adding a new list but if you log into ziplist itself you can add lists? Can this feature be added to your interface. I love the ease of it!!! Thanks:)
