  1. Thanks for the clarification! True, semantics are important! I was just happy to find a solution to something that's been bugging me for a while.. The difference between Evernote and notion is the database structure, and when you want to log how many times a recipe was used and when you last used it. The endgame is a list of favourite recipes I haven't used in a while, as each recipe gets one calculated field that counts the number of times it's been logged, and the latest date made. I'd prefer to use Evernote due to better clipping and search functionality, but that would require some sort of one-to-many database functionality.
  2. Sorry, it was never my intention to neither spam nor slag Evernote; I'm also using Evernote happily for all my other note needs; I simply wanted to update the post in case anyone else was trying (and like me, failing) to use Evernote in a way it was not set up to do. If this is outside the forum's guidelines, please let me know so I can delete this post.
  3. In case anyone finds this thread in a search: five years have passed, and I am now using Notion to solve this task.
  4. Thanks for the tip, that looks great! But alas, I use Evernote on PC and Android. Maybe I'll change to a Mac the next time it's time to change my computer.. I considered making something with Autohotkey, but I need to be able to trigger the log from mobile. After reviewing this thread (https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/68444-how-can-i-develop-a-word-cloud-within-evernote-folders/?p=305912), I realised that I could use a specific tag + move the recipe note between notebooks. A bit clunky, but it works. I'm not sure if it's easier than the manual 'copy link and paste to note' process, but it's a start.. Let's just hope that somebody can pick up the remains of Evernote Food and turn it into a proper logging/suggestion tool for home cooking..
  5. Hi! I try to keep track of which recipes I use from day to day, and I have been doing this by copying a note link from my recipe in Evernote into an index note where I can see what we've had for dinner and go directly to a recipe if we want to revisit it. It is a bit of a hassle to do the copying, scrolling and appending, so I thought I'd try Zapier to automate this task. By using the reminder function (I don't use it for anything else), I could automatically send a recipe to the index note with link and date - great! Unfortunately, this only works the first time you set the reminder. Even if you delete the reminder, Zapier will not trigger again for a note that has triggered a reminder event once, and I'm back with manual link copying again. Does anyone know about a better app/web service that can help to keep a log like this without having to go through all that copying and pasting? -B-
