Sprucing up

(article, Kim Carlson)

We're celebrating our first anniversary this month by giving ourselves a new look — and loads of new features. Here's some of what's in store:

 Looking for fresh food inspiration? Check out [/fritter "Fritter"] — the place to give and get quick cooking ideas from others in the Culinate community. Easier than a forum and quicker than a blog, it's full of good ideas. You can upload recipe links or photos of your dinnertime creations, too. All you need to do to leave a message is log in to the site; you can subscribe to Fritter via [/culinate/RSS RSS], too.
 You can now email recipes and articles to others directly from the site. Look for the "Email to a friend" option in the toolbox on each page. 
 We've organized Culinate to make it easier for you to find similar recipes or related articles; to see what articles have been most popular; and to read a selection of Editor's Choice pieces. We've expanded our Graze section on the Culinate home page, allowing you plenty of reading options.

 We've made it easier for you to find the recipes you want. On the home page there's an exclusive Recipe Search; it also appears on every page in the top right-hand corner.
* [/books/collections/recommended "Recommended books" newpage=true] and [/recipes/featured_recipes "featured recipes" newpage=true] are now highlighted.

We hope you like what you see. As always, you can send us your thoughts in an email to
