Just the Recipe

quote [ Get just the ingredients and directions for any recipe page. No life story, ads, or popups. ]

Get rid of the 500 word essays on world travel or how having children makes you a better cook.

Someone wrote a javascript bookmark for this, where if you click the bookmark with a page open, it will load the URL into the page. Can't remember who wrote it, but here it is:

javascript:(function(){var url=window.location.href;new_url= ""+url;window.location=(new_url);})();

I must surely be the only person who loves knowing that the author got the original recipe from their grandparents, and adapted it for their own purposes.

You are correct. I am glad to know other people hate having to read someone's life story to make puff pastries. If it were the history of the pastry or more on the technique to make it, I might be interested in that. I think this is one of those signs I am autistic.

See, I grew up with half the families cooking books being similar.
Not identical but they'd have some personal story attached, so they have never bothered me.

I'm torn. I love the convenience but don't really want to miss out on gems like Maple Shortbread Bars.

"No life story, no pop ups, no email lists."
And no revenue for the recipe maker?
