How do I save a recipe from another site?

To save a recipe from a food blog or website, visit, and drag the "BigOven Clipper" icon to your favorites bar. Next, visit a recipe page from another site (i.e. Allrecipes), and click on the newly added "BigOven Clipper" icon -- the recipe will then be uploaded to your Added folder.

Do you have a web browser that doesn't support drag and drop and want to add the recipe clipper? Simply create a bookmark in your browser's Bookmark or Favorites bar, name it "Add to BigOven, and copy and paste the following text for the link:

javascript: (function () { var BO_HOST = ''; var x = document.createElement('script'); x.type = 'text/javascript'; x.src = BO_HOST + '/assets/noexpire/js/getrecipe.js?' + (new Date().getTime() / 100000); document.getElementsByTagName('head')[0].appendChild(x); })();

If you're unable to clip from a certain blog or site, shoot us a quick message at and we'll make sure it gets added to the list!
