Evernote has been my auxilliary brain for several years now. I use it to jot down ideas, save articles I’ve read and compile research.

Because it is searchable, I’ve also used it to record recipes and restaurants. It did a good job of it.

But a revised app from Evernote does an even better job at those last two tasks. Evernote Food, a free app for Apple and Android devices, makes saving most recipes a breeze.

The Explore Recipes section of the Evernote Food app links to dozens of food sites. The obvious ones are here — Epicurious, Martha Stewart, Bon Appetit — as well as the cult favorites like Serious Eats and Smitten Kitchen. The odd sites most people have never visited are there, too, like The Shiksa in the Kitchen, Rasa Malaysia and Pioneer Woman.

You can examine or save the recipes listed there. But more than likely,  once you are inside a site you’ll be looking at other recipes. When you see one you like, you click on the scissor icon and the recipe is clipped and saved in your own cookbook.

You can start building your own personal cookbook. Cool.

I have needed this for the last 10 years.  I have so many loose recipes from friends, family, magazines and so on that are filling up my cookbook library. It's so hard to organize that I only open it up and search through it once or twice a year.  I have a new weekend project.

So will you try the Evernote app or have you found a better app?
