I love the possibility to see the latest notes. I have used it several times to find inspiration for dinner if I am in a hurry or our plans have changed at last minute.
Would it be possible to add a scroll function to the latest notes, so it is possible to see more than four notes? Today I took a quick look at the latest notes at lunchtime at work, found a recipe I liked, but I forgot to make a note of it. Now the recipe is gone from latest notes.
You read our minds! Our developer is just now working on adding a "see more" function that will allow you to see many more of the latest Notes added by members. We are also adding a feature to members' profile pages that will list all the comments you have made - great for you to check back but also for members who like your reviews to see what else you have commented on.
I also am finding the Notes really helpful - I saw your note Tommelise about the Roasted broccoli and farro salad with feta dish and made it that night and it was excellent. I probably wouldn't have come across it, or at least not for a while, if I hadn't seen your note.
More members seem to be adding Notes which is great - the more who do it, the more useful the site becomes.
If it jogs your memory Tommelise, these are the recipes for which Notes were added today and the last five yesterday. Some may have been personal notes but hopefully you will spot the one you were interested in.
Goat cheese and roasted garlic beehive
Orecchiette, scallop, rocket
Grilled swordfish with fennel and tomato agrodolce
Shaved beet (beetroot) salad
Shrimp fra diavolo
Zucchini tomato gratin
Harissa tomato sauce
Moroccan spice mix
Sautéed char with Moroccan spices, lentils, and harissa tomato sauce
Lattice-top peach pie
Tomato-rice soup with roasted garlic and navy beans
Grilled sweet potatoes with scallions
Honey frozen custard with honeycomb candy
Hot and sweet red pepper dip with walnuts and pomegranates (muhammara)
Fig and blue cheese savouries
Thanks a lot for your reply.
I will be looking forward to the new features as I would love to take a look at other members notes. I often find that if I like a note from a particular member I often like the rest of the note I come accross from the same member.
Having access to my own notes will also give me a chance to find and edit the note I left on a recipe in Danish in the early days of EYB - I am not sure it is of any help to other members LOL
It’s a good thing that more members are adding notes. I believe you will see that yet more members will be inclined to leave note, when they see their own notes.
I am glad you enjoyed the broccoli farro salad, I too find it is a great recipe :)
Oh I almost forgot. Thanks for the list of recent notes, I found the recipe I was looking for.
The latest release of the site which went up recently includes a couple of features requested in this topic. You can now see the latest 15 Notes on the home page, not just the latest 5. Just click on the 2nd and 3rd circles at the bottom of the Notes. Also every member who has posted Notes now has a Notes total in their stats and a Notes tab on their Profile page. This displays all the Notes they have made, in date order. Also, you may have noticed all Notes now show book title as well as the cover image.
Members add their comments as notes. The Reviews section is for published reviews from news outlets, NPR, blogs, etc and these cannot be added by members. Would love to hear your comments about recipes you've tried!
Jane, thank you for these additions. They are greatly appreciated.
Thanks so much Jane & Fiona! Just chiming in to say how much I love these new features. I had no idea how many dishes I'd made and reviewed. Somehow seeing a total made me feel a little better about my cookbook addiction! I'm using my books so much more since I discovered EYB! Thanks once again, EYB just keeps getting better and better!
Me too, Me too!!! Thanks! Love the new features. You guys are the best!
Yes, love the new notes features, very useful & inspiring! Thanks!
