Labels

I'm guessing many of you already have the hang of labels. For those who don't ...

Next time you're typing in your yummy and wonderful new recipe, decide what category/ies you think it should fall under. Under the lovely little box you type your post in there's a small field for labels. Simply type your category/ies here and you're good.

Example: I put on a recipe for crockpot chicken. I labeled it "crockpot" AND "chicken." That way when Sarah (or anyone else) is looking for a crockpot recipe to cook while she's at work, she can just go to the labels section, click on crockpot and all the different recipes labeled crockpot will come up for her to choose from. Likewise, if I have some chicken in my freezer and want a new way to cook it up, I'll go to chicken and viola.

Tip: If you're not sure what to label it under, click on "Show all" next to the labels field and see the list of other labels people have used. Feel free to start whatever you categories you want. But keep in mind that if I use "chicken" as my label and you use "chicken dinner" it will be under different sections. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but keep it in mind.

P.S. Feel free to go back to your previous posts and edit them, adding the label. We'll have a big catalog in no time.
