Recipe Collections on Food52

November  4, 2013

Keeping tabs on recipes -- whether it's a list of your favorites or an edible to-do list -- can be tricky. For starters, there are a lot of them, and then comes the issue of organizing them in some useful way. Luckily for you, we've created recipe collections for just that purpose.


Merrill's Favorite Lemon Desserts

If you've got an account on Food52, you can begin building recipe collections, and filling them with recipes you want to make, or remember, or share. You can begin to build your Thanksgiving menu, or collect every nice-looking lemon dessert you find (like Merrill did here).

To create a new recipe collection, all you need to do is log in, head to your profile, and click "New Collection." You'll then be able to name it, add a quick description if you'd like, and then any time you save a recipe, you'll be able to add it to any of your recipe collections. If you like to have everything in one place, don't worry! You can always just save everything you want to your existing "Saved Recipes" collection. It's not going anywhere.

Once your collections are up and running, you can also share them with friends on Twitter and Facebook, thanks to the buttons on the top right of your screen. Because now that you have the most perfect compilation of cookie recipes or brown bag lunches, your friends will want to have them, too.
