Recipe Sage PWA keeps, as it sounds, track of your recipes

Published by at

I have to confess to being a 'quick as possible' operator in the kitchen, but if you like to take your time and get meals just right then recipes and keeping track of them in electronic fashion is going to be an asset. If you have the patience (and skill) then Recipe Sage is for you, running in Edge as a Progressive Web Application on Windows 10 phones.

From the (super short) Appscope listing:

Personal recipe keeper and manager. Share recipes, grocery lists, and meal plans.

And from the fuller listing within the app's 'home page':

  • Store all of your recipes in one place
  • Assign labels to your recipes and filter by label
  • Powerful search within your recipe collection
  • Send recipes and notes to your friends and family
  • Create collaborative shopping lists and meal plans
  • Clip recipes directly from the web
  • Import from Pepperplate, Living Cookbook, and Paprika
  • Export your recipes in multiple formats for data portability

Of course, you can turn this into an 'app' yourself with PAWA or just pin it 'as is' on your Start screen. Or just add it as a 'Favourite'. It's up to you. If you're confused by the different PWA options then check out my feature here.

Here's the PWA in action, using promo screens because of the amount of actual recipe detail(!):


Web-based but a perfect PWA for smartphones, including inside Edge and Windows 10 Mobile, you need to sign in, but then you get your recipes remembered across devices, so it's worth it; (right) some likely recipes that I'd never have thought of!


Digging into a recipe's details; (right) there's a fully integrated shopping list system too, with awareness of which ingredients are in which recipe. 

Very advanced and way over the top for most people, I suspect. But a good example of how a web-based info-centric system can be implemented as a PWA and therefore accessible to everyone.
