A New Feature on SFTF

Kale Tree

a christmas tree made out of delicious kale! 

Well, it’s the holiday season, a time of giving, and I wanted to give you all a little present.  It’s not much, really.  But I think it might make your time spent here on SFTF a little more productive.   It’s a new button you’ll find embedded in forthcoming posts (assuming I am with-it enough to remember to put the necessary code in each new post) that says “Spring It!”.    This handy button is connected to a site called Springpad that has all sorts of apps (gosh, I hope I’m using the lingo correctly), including putting SFTF recipes on your iPhone or other on-the-go-gadget so you can take it with you to the store and make you’ve got all the ingredients in your shopping cart. 

Don’t have such an on-the-go-gadget (don’t worry, neither do I)?  This new “Spring It!” button can still be very handy.  By using it, you can save all your favorite SFTF recipes (and others from your regular reads) to one online filing cabinet that you can then use to print recipes (yes, finally a print function for my recipes!) and create quick shopping lists that you can then print and take to the market with you the old-fashioned way.   There’s also some “productivity tools” that I have yet to explore on the Springpad site that might be of use.  If you know of one that you already use and love, please do share it with us so we all know to look for it! 

So, hopefully that helps you out a bit.  If it doesn’t, just ignore the button.  It’s pretty inconspicuous.   You do need to sign up for a Springpad account (quick and painless, I promise) to use it.   When you click on the button in one of my posts, it will take you to a new page.  However, just look closely and find the blue “Spring It and Go Back” link to return to your beloved SFTF.
