Kitchen Monki: Your Ultimate Cooking Utensil

Kitchen MonkiI love to cook, honestly, there’s very little that I enjoy more than cooking (Don’t believe me?  Listen to my Monday Mingle vlog).    A while back I started writing my favorite recipes on recipe cards and storing them in a wooden storage box, which worked really well until I started using the recipe cards.  My cards got bent, stuck together, smudged from liquids…  Many of them are simply unusable at this point.  So I started searching for a free online recipe organizer that I could use to replace my beautiful but messy cards.  Well, we all know my love of monkeys, so when I stumbled across Kitchen Monki I was beyond thrilled.  There’s a monkey! Holding cooking utensils!

Adding recipes to Kitchen Monki is easy, all you have to do is follow the step~by~step directions.  And if you’re taking the recipe from an online site, there’s an area for you to add the corresponding URL.  You can add pictures, share recipes, comment on other people’s recipes…

Seriously, Kitchen Monki is more than “online storage” for recipes, you can manage your grocery list, send your grocery list to your phone via SMA and use the meal planner/calendar (I know there are a lot of meal planning mommas out there who would love this).  There’s even a YouTube channel that shows you how to use the various Kitchen Monki tools.  You can feed your recipes directly to Twitter or embed them into your blogs if you’re a blogger.

Do you store your recipes online or on recipe cards?  Which do you prefer?

Disclosure:  I did not receive any compensation for this post, I just think this is a great recipe storage tool.  And there’s a monkey!
