Find Your Favorite Recipes Easier!!!

We're excited to announce some new features on Near to Nothing!!  In addition to the topics list, the search feature, and the archive, you can now find your favorite recipes through our recipe indices.  This gives you five ways to locate recipes.  Here's a quick run-down:

1.  Topics:  On the right side of the page, there is a square that lists topics.  The larger the word, the more posts there are in that topic.  They are listed in order from most posts to least posts, thus they are not listed alphabetically.  Want to find freezable recipes or dishes that contain chicken?  Use this feature.

2.  Search:  Also on the right side of the page, under the blog archive, you will find a search box.  Enter any word or phrase in here and it will bring up a list of posts that contain that word or phrase.

3.  Archive:  Don't really know what you're looking for?  Browsing for some inspiration?  Check out the blog archive on the right side, just under "About the Authors."  This lists all posts in the order they were posted.  This is the best way to find seasonal recipes (once we've been around more than a year).

4.  Recipe Index--Alphabetical:  You can get to this list by clicking on the tab at the top of the page.  This lists all recipes alphabetically for easy access.  Just click on the name of the recipe you want!

5.  Recipe Index by Category:  The tab for this list is also located at the top of the page.  This list makes it easy to find recipes for main dishes, desserts, soups, side dishes, etc.

We hope these additional features will make Near to Nothing more user-friendly.  Linking all posts up to this point was a daunting task.  Please let us know if there are any broken links.  And if you have any additional ideas about how we can make Near to Nothing easier to use, please don't hesitate to speak up by leaving a comment here or e-mailing us at kitchendiaries [at] yahoo [dot] com!
