OneNote is a great place to catalog your recipes. And now adding them to OneNote is a piece of cake (pun intended) with the OneNote web clipper or the email clipper (firstname.lastname@example.org). When you use the OneNote web clipper or email clipper (email@example.com) to clip a recipe, we’ll simplify the page down to just the steps, ingredients, and key pieces of information you need most, giving your recipes a simpler, cleaner format in OneNote.
Our goal is to help you collect just the information you want, boiled down (see what I did there?), free of distraction, in a clean and consistent format regardless of which site you clip from. In case you need to reference the original page, you can have your cake and eat it too (yep, another pun) — a screenshot is also included, just scroll down.
How are we doing this?
By taking advantage of the Bing platform, we are able to glean the most important parts of the recipe and present them in a useful way directly in OneNote. Bing’s vast knowledge repository, which powers the recipe experience on Bing.com, allows us to dynamically deliver our deep understanding of individual recipes to your OneNote notebook. This feature works on many of the top recipe websites in the U.S., and we’ll expand the number of sites it covers in the future. Current sites include AllRecipes.com, FoodNetwork.com, and Food.com, and many more.
Leave us a comment to let us know how you like this feature. If you’d like to see this feature expanded to other types of websites (e.g. movies, books, products), let us know which ones would be most useful to you! You can also click the feedback links at the bottom right of any recipe clipping to let us know how the feature is working.
In a nutshell, go bananas! Relish in the sweetness. There’s no such thing as free lunch (last pun, I promise), but there is such thing as a free lunch recipe collecting solution. Install the OneNote web clipper or get started with firstname.lastname@example.org and give it a try.
