First blog indexed

We have now completed our first blog index - 1,099 recipes from the Simply Recipes blog by Elsie Bauer.  You can add the blog and recipes to your Bookshelf - every recipe has a Recipe online link back to the Simply Recipes site.  Another great feature on the blog recipes is that we can add the blogger's photos, which really enhances the recipe listing.  Eventually when we have enough photos we will add them to recipe search results, in the same way book covers appear on book search results.

You can also add online recipes individually to your Bookshelf - you don't need to own the book or magazine to access the recipes.  We have more than 3,400 online recipes available so far and we are adding more all the time.  Just click the +Bookshelf button next to individual online recipes.  Or for magazines such as Bon Appétit that have most of their recipes available online, you can add the entire magazine to your Bookshelf.

We are next indexing the recipes from Food52 and 5 Second Rule.  Thanks for all the votes for your favorite food blogs.  Don't forget to complete the survey at the bottom of the Community page if you haven't already done so.  So far the survey results show the following top choices:

Smitten Kitchen
101 Cookbooks
David Lebovitz
Pioneer Woman
Chocolate and Zucchini

    I like most of the suggestions but the Pioneer Woman wouldn't meet the criteria of original recipes, many are copied from old local church books.
