Life Tastes Good is now partnering with Ziplist to make your life easier! #Ziplist #LifeTastesGoodI have exciting news to share with you today! Life Tastes Good has partnered with Ziplist to make your life easier! You're gonna love this!!<smile>

What is Ziplist you ask? That's a great question! Ziplist is a convenient tool that stores all of your favorite recipes, helps you plan your meals, AND creates shopping lists organized by aisle according to where YOU shop!! Seriously, they are doing everything but actually buying the groceries for us! Best of all it's FREE!

With Ziplist you will save time, money, and be more organized! I've prepared a tutorial that shows you how to use all the time-saving tools, so read on...

Accessing your recipe box through Life Tastes Good is easy. Just look for 'Recipe Box' in the navigation window at the top of any page on Life Tastes Good (see picture example below). When you click on 'Recipe Box' in the navigation menu it will take you to your own personalized Ziplist recipe box that stores all of your favorite recipes from Life Tastes Good as well as many other recipe sharing sites around the internet! Note: If you are new to Ziplist - no worries! They make it easy to log in using your Facebook account. If you prefer you can create your own user name and password as well.

Saving a recipe from Life Tastes Good to your recipe box is a breeze! Just click on the 'Make Recipe' button. The 'Make Recipe' button is easy to find right next to the title that is located above the list of ingredients. See the picture below for reference. Note: Ziplist has changed the button to say 'Save Recipe' but it is still the green color with the heart and still performs the same.

Or if you are like me just download the free Ziplist App and you'll have that same list right on your phone! That's my favorite part! 


This picture shows how my list looks on my phone. It is large print so I can read it even without my old lady glasses, and it is organized by aisle to get me in and out of the store in record time!

Do you see the boxes next to each ingredient? I love this part! As you put the ingredients into your cart you just tap on the box and that removes it from your list so you don't miss anything! To empty the list you just click on 'Checkout'! It's an awesome feature!

You can also access all of the website features via your mobile device in the same manner. To save a recipe just click on 'Save Recipe' on the mobile site and voila - recipe saved! 

To add ingredients you just save the recipe and then click on 'add ingredients'. Honestly, this could only be better if Ziplist did the shopping for us!!



Here are a few of my top recipes to get your recipe box started! Just click on the link for the recipe and then click on the 'Make Recipe' button to save it!















There you have it folks! Save time and money with the convenience of Ziplist and Life Tastes Good! I really hope you enjoy this new feature and would love to hear your feedback. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. You can contact me by commenting on this blog post or through any of the avenues listed on my Contact page!
