While I looked forward to the task of building out my own full blown database-driven recipe site, with full taxonomies, to both catalog and share my favorite recipes, I quickly realized I was merely trying to reinvent the wheel. And wouldn’t really be able to build that new wheel any better.
Facebook’s Recipe Binder application allows me to catalog, classify, and share my favorite recipes. And it does it very well. With the added bonus of Facebook’s massive user network. So, while I might be able to drive a few friends and family to look at recipes on my own site, Recipe Binder’s integration with Facebook ensures that every single recipe I post or comment upon will be viewable to my entire Friends network.
No brainer on that one.
