WFMW: Use your browser history to find stuff

This ever happen to you?

I remembered seeing an  awesome recipe from homemade fudge popsicles somewhere online, but I couldn’t recall where.

I tried searching my email (I try and save recipes that appeal to me there) and my Google Reader but found nothing.

Grr!  Suddenly I had a burning desire to make popsicles but I couldn’t find the stinkin recipe.

Then I remembered to check my browser history.

I use Firefox so I simply went to Menu -> History, then selected Show All History.

This brought up a new window that showed a list of my recent history and includes a search dialogue box.

Aha!  I thought.  I put in “popsicle” and found… nothing.

Curses…  I knew I had seen these recently, what was I missing?   I tried searching for “fudge” and … voila!

Success!

Although I had saved it to my Epicurious recipe box, I visit so many different food sites it didn’t occur to me to look there.

So, my tip is… when you’re trying to remember something you recently saw online, try searching your browser history to find it!

Anyone else hungry to try fudge pops?

    Yes, but are you using Pinterest yet? Because that’s a game-changer, my friend. GAME. CHANGER. You’ll never lose another link to another recipe again.

      ya know, I signed up for it a while ago but was afraid to get sucked in. But after reading Diaper Diairies post, I’m tempted for recipes specifically… I have too many recipe boxes spread across the net (Tasty Kitchen, Epicurious, AllRecipes, etc.)

    Fudge pops…I have a freezer full of them I need to get rid by next Wed. And I am trying not to get sucked into the whole Pinterest!!
