Around The Internet Kitchen: Print Stuff!

by Nick

As some of you might know, I’ve been working slowly on rolling out a new Macheesmo design. Along with the new design is going to be some cool new (helpful) features that you all have been requesting over the last many months.

Even though the full design probably won’t be done for another month or so, I wanted to go ahead and release the most requested feature now since it’s working. This feature is the ability to print just the recipe for any given post.

Sometimes I get a bit wordy in my descriptions and I totally get that it’s nice to have the option to get the quick or long version for a dish, so now that’s possible. You should start noticing a printer icon up by the Title for posts and if you click that it’ll pop up options to print either the full post or just the recipe for that post.

This will be more prominent I think in the redesign, but this is where it lives now.

Here’s the problem. Now I have to go through my entire archives and actually write short recipes for each post. You’ll start seeing the option right away on new posts and I’m working back through the archives in a logical fashion. That said, if you’re dying to print a recipe in the archives, shoot me an email and I’ll write that one right away for your printing pleasure!

I hope you all like the new feature. I programmed it all myself so I’m pretty proud of my new WordPress Ninja skillz.

And a few links…

Grilling It With Bobby – One of my favorite food bloggers got the awesome experience of going on Grilling it with Bobby Flay. What’d they make? We’ll you’ll have to tune in August 1st to find out! (@ No Recipes)

Scallion Pancakes – I’ve actually tried these before but mine did NOT come out this awesome. I think I was missing the rolling technique. Love the photos in this post. (@ Love and Olive Oil)

Spicy Quinoa, Cucumber, Tomato Salad – I’m not sure that you can get healthier or more summer than this recipe. Betsy and I have been eating a lot of quinoa lately so this recipe kind of spoke to me. (@ NY Times)

OMG Pancetta – This was a new blog for me, but I immediately subscribed based on this post alone. I can’t wait until I have a set-up where I can make some charcuterie! (@ Evie Eats Everything)

Have a great weekend everyone! If you need me I’ll be re-writing short versions of every recipe on Macheesmo. That should take no time at all…..

  1. I’m really excited about the print button! Great work with those skills! Hope all is well after your D.C. earthquake this morning.

  2. Thanks for the link Nick! I love the print button! Are you going to release it when you’re done? I would definitely like to have something like that for my blog.

  3. Whoa that’s a lotta work, bro. More power to you.

    And re: your poll this week. I cannot choose between puddings. All puddings are God’s creatures. Viva la pudding!
