Say Mmm has a set of meal planning and grocery shopping tools that help people organize and use recipes from anywhere with less hassle, and we have extended some of these features to work on other sites, so bloggers can make it easy for their readers to use their recipes. With just a click your readers can get an organized shopping list without you or your readers having to install anything or even have a Say Mmm account.
For most sites and visitors you can just add a link to the recipe post or even to a side bar on the site and when a person clicks on it, we can lookup the page that the user came from and automatically change the recipe ingredients into an organized list of grocery items. This uses the referral information that browsers usually send, and works similar to how Google Analytics detects where visitors come from.
In some cases, websites may block sending this information or users may have firewalls or restrictive security settings that remove this information. If we can't tell what page the user came from we just ask them to put in the URL or ingredients. There is also an advanced options where you can embed the link of the page that has your recipe in the link you put on your site. It is a little extra work to change the link for each recipe on your site, but the nice thing about this option is we will always know the right page to look for the recipe, regardless of any site or user browser settings. You can also use this option if you want to share a shopping list link for a specific recipe in an email or on facebook or any page that doesn't have the actual recipe.
