Krecipes 0.2: Recipes for geeks

I need more testers for this little beast, guys. Or is it that there're no bugs left? :-) Just to let you know, this version includes two delicious recipes from and for geeks. One by Adriaan de Groot, and another one by me. Even developers cook sometimes...

Anyone is encouraged to submit recipes for the next version. I think 10 sample recipes would be enough. And please, make them short... (you know... i18n)


If you want a really quick and cheap but filling stew:

1 can vegetable soup
2 potatoes
1 courgette
1 carrot

Chop the potatoes into small pieces (small enough to eat in one bite). Bring a pan of water to the boil, and submerge the potatoes. Simmer for 5 minutes, and while that is going chop the carrot and courgette into very small pieces. Throw those in after the potatoes have been on for 5 minutes, and leave going for another 5 minutes.

Once done, drain the vegetables, and pour the can of soup into the pan along with the vegetables. Cook until the soup looks done, pour into a bowl, and enjoy :)

For the non-vegans, some grated cheddar cheese goes very well on top.

This is becoming really interesting: now I have some recipes to try this weekend ;-) Thanks everyone.

About Mango, yes I've seen it, and I'll see what interesting features could be implemented. I'm also looking at the program of "cookbook" in kdenonbeta.

I hadn't heard of it at the time I began with this app. Now I'm trying to see what I can do about it. I could either help the author with cookbook, merge both if the author agrees, port features.... not too sure yet. It doesn't seem to be the same layout idea, but it's got similarities and the program has quite a few really brilliant ideas.

I think, looking at what the current state of Krecipes is, there are quite a few things that really need to be properly done yet:

  • A wizard, for MySQL account setup. Similar to what K3B does to setup permissions (currently the user needs to have an account in the server)
  • Finish properly the shopping list function, and diets
  • Recipe groups: vegetarian, meat, pasta....
  • Exporting/Importing to XML (for storage) and Web exporting.
  • Embedded Mysql, or other SQL DB server? This would avoid the additional package dependancies

    I got also interesting suggestions by some people, such as step-by-step photos, transferring data to palm,... but those may take some time yet.
