New to Food Fanatic: Ziplist Recipe Box

Amber Bracegirdle | Bluebonnet Baker Updated

Ziplist is an interactive recipe box you can use to store recipes, create shopping lists, and even meal plans. And now, you can do all those things with your favorite Food Fanatic recipes too!

We're always trying new things here on Food Fanatic. Like maybe a gluten free muffins recipe when we aren't exclusively gluten-free, or making homemade versions of your favorite restaurant recipes (our favorite happens to be this Texas Roadhouse Cinnamon Butter recipe).

Today we're excited to tell you about our new partnership with Ziplist. Anything that helps you plan dinner, a party menu, and generally stay more organized, we're all about.

Adding Ziplist to the Food Fanatic site means you can do all those things with your favorite Food Fanatic recipes too.

At the top of each Food Fanatic recipe card, you will now find a "Save" button. Every time you hit that button, the chosen recipe will be saved to your Ziplist Recipe Box.

At the right-hand top of the site is where you'll find your Recipe Box.

Inside your recipe box, you can view the recipes you've saved to your box from every site, not just Food Fanatic. You can filter what sites you want to see, and even build an entire meal plan using "My Meal Planner".

Click on a recipe, and then the "List" button. Ziplist will create a custom shopping list for you. You can also do this for your meal plan, adding multiple recipes to your list easily. Ziplist even sorts your list by category! No more endless trips back to the produce department because you forgot the mushrooms.. then the parsley.. then the bananas.

On the go? Not a problem for Food Fanatic or ZipList. Download their mobile app for your Apple or Android smart phones, and grab your shopping lists as you browse the aisles. You can even check off the items as they go in your cart! Smart, we tell ya.

We hope that you love this new site feature. If you have more suggestions for things you'd like to see on Food Fanatic or within Ziplist, we'd love to hear them. Leave a comment below, or email me at
