Whether you're a home cook looking to explore new dishes or a chef looking for a place to store all of the recipes you're collecting for a cookbook, KeepRecipes is a new web service that gives you a way to enter your own recipe collection, or snip recipes from cooking sites around the web, similar to the way Instapaper or ReadItLater lets you save articles and news stories.
KeepRecipes is a combination web app and iPhone app. The web app lets you organise and enter recipes into categories so they're easy to search and dig through later when you want to find something specific. You can also search other recipes members have added to their own accounts to see if there's something you'd like to try that another user knows how to make.
Use the KeepRecipes bookmarklet (again, like Instapaper or ReadItLater) to automatically save recipes on sites like Food Network, the New York Times and other cooking sites to your account. The bookmarklet only saves ingredient lists and highlighted text at the moment-so if you want the instructions saved with the ingredients, make sure to highlight them before clicking the bookmarklet.
The service also offers a mobile app for iOS that lets you view ingredients and search your recipes while you're out shopping, view photos, see what's new on the site, and use as a kitchen companion while you're cooking. Both the iOS app and the web site are completely free, although the service is planning premium features (printed cookbooks based on your recipes, for example,) in the future.
