RSS Recipes

We’ve started to roll out RSS feeds at YankeeMagazine.com. My favourite is the Recipes RSS (feed URL): a stream of new recipes, both from YANKEE editors and from YankeeMagazine.com readers. There are also individual feeds for each recipe category: a feed for vegetable recipes for example.

This is a neat use of RSS, because it lets users look at recipes from a completely different angle — it’s not search, it’s not browse, it’s “let me know.”

Hmmm, like radio.

Well, yes like radio, but much less ephemeral. I have visions of 1940’s housewives huddled by their radios, notebook in hand, to try and catch the high points of whatever was being made on the afternoon cooking show. These are much easier to bookmark. The float-by-under-your-nose method of delivery is one of many options.

By the way, I’ve learned a new word:
