Recipes Ship is free software put out by RecipeShip.com, which
collects thousands of recipes from across the Web and showcases
creations that members upload–and the site is a hoot, by the way.
Where else could you find recipes for “Bbq boston butt” or “Pork
and Bean Crackers”?
Like RecipeShip.com, the program is loaded with oddly spelled
recipes that are vaguely attributed and likely haven’t been tested.
You’ll find categories like “poul” (meaning Soul Food) and
“SeaFoods.” There’s even a selection of Afghan recipes to try. The
directions and measurements are all over the map, literally; I’d
use the recipes for inspiration rather than directions.
You can add your own recipes to the database, but you’ll need to
type everything into database fields–there’s no import or export
functions, but you can print out individual pages.
If you’re having a hard time keeping track of your recipes, and
don’t mind typing them all into a database, then give the free
Recipes Ship a try. At the very least, browsing through the
hundreds of idiosyncratically worded recipes is entertaining–and
could be inspiring.
