Veggie Terrain Update

Don't worry - I'm still here. I've just been working "behind the scenes" of Veggie Terrain a little bit more...

Basically, I've started adding a few additional features to my blog, in an attempt to make it more user-friendly, and to add a bit of spice, if you will. In light of that, I figured I'd go ahead and publish a quick post about what I've added recently.

So, the following 3 things are new:
  1. The "printer-friendly" versions of Veggie Terrain recipes. I've started adding these because I thought they'd be nice for those of you who want to quickly/easily print my recipes. Sometimes I hate having to highlight everything or cut + paste everything that I want to print, so this is my way of helping to reduce that necessity for you!
    1. Note: Apparently I haven't been able to perfect these yet - they'll be fixed asap!
      1. Consider the print-friendly links fixed! Yay!
  2. The recommendation links. I've been working on adding links to other recipes on my site that you might like, based upon whichever recipe you happen to be viewing. In other words, what that means is that certain recipes will now: lead you to similar recipes; suggest different things that you might like; or assist you with additional ways to utilize the specific recipe, itself. Hopefully you'll find these things useful!
  3. The "Twitter" updater. This is just a fun little sidebar that lets you know what I'm doing at the moment - as if you're actually interested - whenever I get around to updating it. The question that it poses is: "Whatcha doing JD?" While I do admit that it's really more of a social-networking application, I decided to add it here since I don't do the whole MySpace/Friendster thing.
That's all for right now, but I plan to post another entry soon.

And it'll have food, I promise!

  3. Yay for printer friendly recipes! And I've been thinking of doing the whole twitter thing as well, if for no other reason than it'll give me something to do when I'm bored at work...

  4. Very cool about the printer-friendly recipes. I'm sure I'll be using that feature quite often.

    Also, I like the idea of putting Twitter updates on your blog. I have a Twitter account (along with a bazillion other social network accounts - mostly business related), but I never quite figured out what the heck to do with it.

    Hava a great evening!
