Post your Recipes - with step by step photos

  1. http://visualrecipes.com/

    This is a great website for people like me who can't cook.

    Users can upload photos (max 22) of their recipes being made.

    A million times better than a list of ingrediants which simply puts me
    off and there is always something I can't follow. Also these recipes
    are by "real" people and are therefore more pratical.
    I'm actually motivated to try some of thies

    I have no connection with this site and am just hoping people here will
    upload their recipes as there aren't many on it at the moment.


    thanks

    Interesting site. The cucumber rounds with hummus and yogurt looks
    interesting along with Hector's Exorcism Sauce for Chicken Wings.

    You can do that with a number of free photo services. Observe the
    fruitcake folder:

  4. Thank you for posting the link. Looks like the site has about 214
    recipes at the moment. All the recipes on the site can be seen with
    this link: http://visualrecipes.com/all-recipes.php

    Real people are the kind that you make yourself, not the ones that come
    in boxes at the store.

    And they're practical for people who need help boiling water.;-)

    Calling Jill! I found one called Butternut Squash Soup with Andouille
    Sausage that I will try after I get home (probably with hot Italian
    sausage). Unfortunately, what the garnish is was left out of the
    recipe.

    Not totally comfortable with the sight yet though. What's with that
    get a free ringtone for signing up? Things like that make me
    suspicious of potential spyware.

    Interesting idea... but then you have to be organised enough to take
    the photos! I usually cook by the seat of my pants, and you don't want
    to SEE the mess I make in my kitchen!

    Yes, that is a nice element. I wish it were more acceptable here but it
    isn't :(

    The only downside to this that I see is to the poster having to stop to
    take pics along the way. I often do this for my own records but not for
    sharing and for many dishes, this just isn't possible. I do like the
    website though and will be trying a couple of their recipes.

    Thanks William. I tried that and was shot down by the cabal or whatever
    you want to call it and reinforced by the tolerated trolls. I figure,
    why bother? Personally, I like the idea of seeing a food someone cooked
    especially when accompanied by a recipe. Obviously this is not the ng
    to post such things. But thankyou for the pointer. Tinypic is really
    nice for those who don't have access to binary newsgroups.

    Get an account with Yahoo, and you can post all the pictures you'd
    like, and it's free!

    Speaking as an *imbicile* exactly what difference would it make if I
    used tinypic or yahoo? Either way it is posting pic links to a ng that
    does not appreciate pics of food. Go figure. A newsgroup dedicated to
    yipping about food doesn't like food pics. Honestly thanks for the tip
    but it isn't worth my while.

    Yahoo keeps all of your pictures together so people can look at them
    anytime they want, instead of searching for tinypic links.

    I'm not sure why there were complaints about your pictures. I enjoyed
    them. I have a link to my Yahoo picture album at the bottom of each
    of my posts. So does Barb Schaller, and no one has said a word.

    I'm sorry for calling you an imbicile. I was having a bad few days. I
    wish I could take it back, but all I can do is hope that you'll
    forgive me at some point.

    I don't even remember people complaining. One person claimed the images
    were not hers or something, but there didn't seem to be any general
    consensus that linked images were inappropriate for the group.

    I wouldn't mind seeing more of them. I think it would be nice to have
    them grouped in one place, though.

    That person enjoys causing other people pain. I think patches has
    that individual killfiled.

    Please post again, patches.
