Online recipes

After a couple of aborted attempts at keeping track of recipes in my blog (well, I did have some good ones in its previous incarnation, using pMachine), I found a good, stand-alone web app that handles recipes well.

It's called phprecipebook and requires PHP (surprise!) and your choice of database (postgresql and mysql are currently supported).

You can check out my installation at Not much there right now. By the way, if you see the source as "Dr. Bernstein", it's from a special diet that Kate is on. My cooking usually has more olive oil :)

P.S. Not all of my recipes are rushing online. I got a great homemade recipe book (with my picture on the front, no less) that sits in our kitchen for me to scribble in…at least until we get a computer in there.
