Introducing the One-Click Recipe Clipper

I love the wealth of recipes on the Internet. I frequently like to cook new things, rather than constantly turn out old standards. In any given week, I visit at least three different recipe sites in search of something for dinner. Sites like Bon Appetit, Epicurious, AllRecipes, and Food Network (as well as many, many others!) provide an unbelievable selection of recipes within quick reach. And by comparing two versions of the same recipe, I can figure out ways to improvise and make a version that suits me best.

The problem I’ve always had is keeping track of where I’ve found all of these recipes. Many of these sites provide a Recipe Box feature that allows you to collect recipes, yet nearly all of them limit you to collecting recipes from one site. This is why I set out a few years ago to create One tsp. — a place where I can store recipes found anywhere on, or off, the Internet.

Recipe Clipper bookmarklet

The task of copying recipes into One tsp. has gotten a whole lot easier. A few months ago, I released a one-click tool for copying recipes from some of the top recipe sites directly into your One tsp. recipe box. The “Recipe Clipper” is a bookmarklet that you can add to your web browser. It’s just like a bookmark, but instead of pointing to a web address, it contains a small amount of JavaScript code that copies the recipe you’re viewing into your One tsp. account. That’s right… with one click, you can copy an entire recipe right into One tsp. And from there you can add tags, create shopping lists, and go mobile — just like you do with any of the recipes you’ve already added to One tsp.

If you want to see it in action, check out this video demonstration of One tsp. that highlights the bookmarklet.

Then install the Recipe Clipper into your browser* and start clipping recipes.

Instructions for installing on an iPhone or iPad are available in the help articles.

I’d love to hear your thoughts about the clipper. You can always feel free to contact me directly with questions or comments!

    This feature is awesome. I’m wondering what the timeline is for adding more websites? My goal for using this site is to organize all of my magazine clippings online. So, I’m definitely looking for Cooking Light’s website, as well as Everyday with Rachael Ray’s website. Do you think those will be added in the future?

    Great job with the bookmarklet so far. I’d just love to be able to use more sites with it. Thank you!

  2. Support for new web sites is being added on a slow, but regular basis. Priority is being given to popular web sites that the most One tsp. users are likely to use. I also listen to users who request, or vote for, specific sites to be added. And frankly, it always helps when those requests come from users who have subscribed to a Pro Account! 🙂

    Totally agree with Allison!

    Surprised that Pioneer Woman’s main site it covered but her recipe site (Tasty Kitchen) is not yet.
