Skipping Recipe Cards With Cloud Service Recipe Boards
Pin boards have made a recent appearance in cloud computing news, but one cloud service that many overlook is the online recipe cards and boards. These cloud services have been around for quite some time and allow users the ability to find recipes, load recipes of their own, save favorite recipes and even create an online cloud service recipe card index to access at any time, from anywhere. Multiple recipe sites, including Epicurious.com and Food.com, offer this cloud service.
Collaborative Recipe Finders
Users of these online recipe cloud services can collaborate with family members, friends or followers on favorite recipes, recipe alterations and more, and they can even share photographs with one another – all of which are stored online. When users follow a specific recipe, they can monitor activity on that recipe through the cloud service and see what other users say about that particular recipe.
Pin Board Method
Unlike regular recipe sites, these cloud service recipe finders offer a pin board style search. Recipes are hosted on one central site, but when users pin or click on a specific recipe, they are taken to the original site for that recipe. This not only provides exposure for the original site, but also helps this cloud service avoid issues with copyright infringement.
Drag and Drop Saving
Users who access these free cloud service-based recipe books have a lot more options than those offered by typical recipe sites. That is because cloud computing sites offer a toolbar or desktop download feature that allows users to click on a recipe through the pin board and drag it to their cloud storage recipe box. This recipe box is accessible on their computers, through their accounts on the recipe board or through the downloadable app on their mobile phones.
This is extremely convenient for users who are at the grocery store and cannot remember the ingredients they need or who want to find recipes to pair with ingredients they find at the store. Through the cloud service, users can also access their recipe boxes on their tablets for paper-free recipe cards while in the kitchen preparing a meal.
These cloud service recipe boards and recipe card boxes are growing in popularity, especially with the increase in popularity of cloud service pin boards. Cloud service recipe boards such as Epicurious.com and Food.com have already inspired the creation of other cloud computing recipe services such as Gourmet.com and Foodista.com.
