As you know, I am searching the blogosphere for all the ways that people are using OneNote in their lives. One of our members has blogged about how he uses OneNotedevelop new recipes. Check it out:
I enjoy cooking a wide variety of dishes, in various cuisines. While recipes are available on line, and in many many cookbooks, I enjoy the creative expression that comes from ‘doing it yourself’. But who wants to reinvent the wheel. When I get a dish to where I want it (which may take several iterations), I want to preserve that knowledge. I have found that OneNote offers an excellent interface to this process.
I start with a basic recipe, either from my own idea, or from another source. Then, using a two column approach, I record the ingredients, and method in the right hand column. Opposite the preparation, I record the critique. Over several iterations of this process, I arrive at a satisfactory result, which I ultimately record in my database, but save the ‘experiment process’ on its own OneNote page.
The process looks like this:
The process includes as many steps as necessary to achieve the desired result, and frequently will include pictures. Here’s an accompanying image clipped from a OneNote recipe page on making salsa.
