How do you keep track of recipes?

I found the coolest little website for keeping track of and sharing internet recipes. It is called Cookmarked. It keeps all of your recipes you have discovered from websites all across the internet. Click the bookmark tool, copy and paste the recipe, and save. You can also connect to friends and share recipes with each other.

From the site:

What is Cookmarked?
Cookmarked: Is a new tool that helps you keep track of all your recipes in one place. These can be paper recipes from an old cookbook, or bookmarks to recipe sites on the web. Cookmarked also helps you share recipes with friends in all your favorite formats (email, facebook, twitter), find others who cook certain foods (Vegan guru, King of Mexican dishes), modify recipes on your mobile as you cook and more…
Who are we?
Cookmarked was created by two girls and a guy who enjoy cooking and like eating even more. We were frustrated by trying to keep up with recipes and tracking changes made while cooking. So, we decided to build a solution! We were pretty excited about just using it ourselves, but the more we talked about it with others we realized this tool should be shared.
The bookmark tool:
The bookmarker is simply a way to quickly and easily add all the bookmarks you have for recipes over the entire web, and keep them in one place. Drag the bookmarker link to your toolbar (or right-click the link and save as a bookmark). Then, when you see any recipe online, you can simply click this button and a new cookmarked window will appear and auto insert the exact web-link and title. Then make any changes to the title, add any notes and click the save button. That’s it! Once you have stored all your bookmarks, you can go back to them and use them as a building block for your own recipes. Edit the recipe and add your own personal changes. (ie. substitute 1/4oz chives for 1/2oz chives).

I have been using the site regularly for several months now and it is so much easier to find those recipes I wanted to try or try again. There is also a meal planning tool on the site. I haven’t had a chance to play with it yet, but I’d love to hear if any of you plan to use it.

The recipes I have saved can be found here, or at the bottom of this page. Enjoy!
