A food blog is many things, the obvious being a record of recipes. And, to be useful, records need easy access.
On Pebble Soup, readers can get to recipes by using
Labels, a full set of which is found at the end of each page and a selection on the left-hand bar.
Then there is Google search at the top which allows a search by key words and the
yearly archives with its drilled down list which will give a list of recipes.
Therefore finding a recipe is not really a problem but I wanted something more visual and pretty which called for a note pad.
There are a few note pads around and a quick read on various forums pointed me in the direction of Evernote and Pepper Plate. First impression, "not user friendly enough for me" so I opted for a lesser known note pad which will display collections of recipes on a caroussel. I opted for Spring Pad.
I am rather pleased with the result

In a heatproof bowl beat the egg yolks, sugar until thick and pale, stir the milk mixture in
