BTD Forums  /  Cook Right 4 Your Type  /  Snazzy New Recipe Database
Posted by: Dr. D, Friday, September 28, 2007, 9:29pm
We has some spamming of the Recipe database, so I took the opportunity to tune it up a bit.

To find a recipe:

http://www.dadamo.com/typebase4/recipes.htm

Adding recipes is now much more detailed. You can leave information about ingredients which in turn link back to the TypeBase entry for those ingredients:

http://www.dadamo.com/typebase4/recipeform7x.pl?

I'll probably add some additional features. (Voting on recipes? A place for feedback?)

Ideas are welcome.


:)

I think there should be a non-secretor section

Quoted from Cynthia_Siemon
I think there should be a non-secretor section

The new add recipe form and edit recipe screen now allow the recipes to be rated for both ABO blood type and secretor status.

However, it will take some time and effort from some advanced black belt members, that have access to the edit recipe screen, to go through all the current 855 recipes and rate them appropriately for ABO blood type and secretor status and fix typos, formating issues, etc.

If there are other members that aren't advanced black belt members yet, but would like to seriously help with this task let one of the admin/moderators know and we consider adding you to the team.

Dr. D has been busy! He has continued to enhance the Recipe Database with the features for which you have been asking!

1. Have you tried this recipe? What did you think?
Near the bottom of every recipe page you now have to option to rate the recipe from 1 to 5 stars!

2. Click Here For Printer Friendly Version
At the top of each recipe there is now an option for a printer friendly version. Check it out. Its great and even in color.

3. The Recipe Home page now offers access to blood and secretor type specific recipe listings, with the lists grouped by recipe category.
At the time of this post already 8 new recipes have been entered and 119 old recipes have been edited, including rating them for blood and secretor type acceptability. This has been done in one week with just a few members working on it.

4. Maybe in his spare time Dr. D will enhance the current two blood type search to include secretor type, now that we currently have 127 recipes that are rated for blood and secretor type acceptability that can be searched. How important is it to be able to cross blood/secretor type search the Recipe Database on more than the current 2 types?

5. List Every Recipe
A 'List All' or 'List Every Recipe' tab is now on every Recipe Database page, so you have quick and easy access to it.

6. What's New
There is now a 'What's New' tab on all the Recipe Database pages. The top of the 'Whats New' page shows a list of the most recent recipe additions sorted by the date they were added. Lower down the page is a list of all the older recipes that have been revised or reviewed.

I think that Dr. D deserves a big round of applause for all that he has done for us this past week.

The new recipe database is awesome!!  It's a pleasure to use.  Thank you Dr. D. and everyone else involved.

I forgot to mention that Dr. D added 2 new categories that recipes are being put in:

Beverages
Soups and Broths

These go with the already existing categories:

Appetizer
Baked Good
Beverages
Breakfast
Dessert
Entree
Salad
Side Dish
Snack
Other

This will make it easier to find what you are looking for.

Note: as we review and edit them we are moving dressing recipes from the generic 'Other' category to the 'Salad' category.

Also, almost all of the significant number of previously uncategorized recipes have now been categorized by the review and edit team, so they will be easier to find in the future.

There is now a 'What New' tab on all the Recipe Database pages.

Check out the new What's New page features!

You can now sort the listed new and the older revised recipes by the recipe name, date, and your blood and secretor type!

In case you wonder what the 'Rev' column is for in the new recipe list, it allows the Recipe Database team to identify if the new recipe has been reviewed.

Several other changes have been made in various areas of the Recipe Database.

The Recipe Home page has the capability to generate many different types of blood type specific recipe lists:

   * Type A Friendly Recipes
   * Type AB Friendly Recipes
   * Type B Friendly Recipes
   * Type O Friendly Recipes

   * Cross Blood Type (A, AB, B, O) Friendly Recipes

   * Type A Non Secretor Friendly Recipes
   * Type AB Non Secretor Friendly Recipes
   * Type B Non Secretor Friendly Recipes
   * Type O Non Secretor Friendly Recipes

   * Cross Match Blood Type Compatible Recipes

The 'Cross Match Blood Type Compatible Recipes' selection allows you to find recipes that are compatible between any two blood types, now including non-secretors!

The 'Cross Blood Type (A, AB, B, O) Friendly Recipes' listing will be great to use for entertaining, potluck meals, and of course for those of you that have a multi-blood type family.

I've posted a few recipes and I think it would be great if it had a preview before you submit it, that way you could quickly check for errors and also see how many if any avoids come up and make suggestions for a substitution.
Posted by: Lola, Sunday, October 7, 2007, 4:35am; Reply: 20
there s nothing to worry about!
with the new editing possibilities, it can be corrected in no time, if need be.

do you have the titles?
I could help you search them and edit for you......

Thanks Lola, I just mean in general it would be neat to preview and see the avoid/neutrals ( the little chart that pops up at the bottom) and be able to add substitutions....
I'm finding there are many new recipes listed with maple sugar ( avoid for me) does anyone know if we can use DATE sugar seeing that I can have dates????? Sometime agave doesn't work that great in substituting 1/2 cup or more..
Posted by: Lola, Sunday, October 7, 2007, 4:46am; Reply: 22
I believe that wouldn t be a problem, if your date syrup source is all dates!
manufacturers always love adding junk to perfectly wonderful produce!! sigh!
perhaps soaking some dates in hot tea during the night and blending that would make your date sweetener.

It actually looks like brown sugar, bakes like brown sugar, but is 100% dates. It is expensive but who cares when you can't have sugar...maybe Dr.D could possibly add it to the data base???? Would be a great thing for us non-secretors (sorry O's)

I think minimally processed pure date sugar would be the same BTD value as dates.
Quoted from What's Cooking America -  Questions & Answers -Definition of Date Sugar, Substituting Date Sugar
http://whatscookingamerica.net/Q-A/DateSugar.htm
Date sugar - It is more a food than a sweetener.   An unprocessed sugar made from dehydrated dates that are ground into small bits to be used as a sweetener. Date sugar is high in fiber, and has a long list of vitamins and minerals, including iron. It is light tan in color. Tends to clump as is naturally hygroscopic, but will break up.  Its use is limited by price and the fact it does not dissolve when added to liquids.

Using date sugar - Substitute one cup date sugar for each cup granulated sugar or brown sugar.

Dr. D has continued to add new features to the Recipe Database.

Notice the new 'recipes' button at the top of the BTD Forums page.

Check out the various recipe listings. They now show the recipe average star rating and the number of votes.

Check out the new recipe Search results listing. The recipes are now listed with blood type ratings.

Dr. D used his D'Adamo Diet Equalizer (DDE) program high-quality data tables to extract some valuable information to display on the recipes. For example, look at the footnotes below all the Analysis tables on this recipe:
No-Knead Bread

The following is a list of all the current possible footnotes:

All of the significant number of previously uncategorized recipes have now been categorized by the review and edit team, so they will be easier to find in the future. We are now working on recipes that have been incorrectly categorized or that need to be re-categorized to one of the new categories.

On the Add a Recipe page the Typebase Ingredient Link selection process has been improved to make it easier to find the items you want to select.
Quoted from Add A Recipe - TypeBase Ingredient Links
Scroll down to the TypeBase Ingredient Links menu such that you can see the A-Z links below it.

To find the ingredient in the TypeBase Ingredient Links menu select the A-Z link for the first letter of the Typebase entry name for the ingredient you wish to select. This will take you to that letter section of the menu. You may have to scroll the menu down to find the selection.

More to come!

We are creating 'Collection Recipes' so that you can go to one recipe that will have links to all the other recipes of that type.

Check out the new 'Collection Recipes' that have been created:

Baking Powder Recipe Variations
Mayonnaise Recipe Variations
Mustard Recipe Variations

We will create more of these as needed.


This was Rodney's idea. (clap)

Dr. D has added some more new features to the Recipe Database.

The previous recipe footnotes I posted about are food item specific.

Now Dr. D has added some additional footnotes that are based on analyzing all the recipe ingredients:

You asked for it, you got it!

Dr. D added a recipe preview capability to the Add a Recipe process! See the new Preview button at the bottom of the Add A Recipe page.

Now you can preview and go back and make changes as many times as you want to before you save the recipe.

If after all the editing you decide that the recipe just isn't going to be any good, then don't save it. That means you can use the Add A Recipe and Preview pages to develop new recipes by taking advantage of the wonderful Ingredients Analysis tables that Dr. D added to the Recipe Database feature set.

I just increased the ability to cross match blood type compatible recipes from 2 blood types to 2 to 4 blood types.

At the same time I improved the resulting listing page so that it matches the other listing pages, including the search feature at the top, the tab format, and vote star rating next to each recipe.

I agree that it would be good to have a place for suggestions for each recipe though, for if improvements have been found. Maybe it could have a tracking system to show who posted each comment, to help prevent abuse of the system: a subform, a bit like a very basic blog, but only showing date, name and comment?

You asked for it you got it.

I added the capability to print either a complete or abbreviated printer friendly version of the recipes in the database. I even took some of the extra space out of the complete version so some recipes may fit on fewer pages.

Here are examples of a complete and abbreviated printer friendly version of this recipe.

The next step is to add the code to break up the BTD Variations and Substitutions Analysis tables into the various product sections and add the ingredient and recipe footnotes at the bottom of the complete version.

It would also be nice to search for a word within just the recipe title instead of the entire recipe. Lists can get cumbersome when you look up "sugar cookie" and everything with the word sugar pops up. The "match entire phrase" helps but some people may throw in a word between sugar and cookie so it's not always the ideal search criteria.

Ok, I added the option to search the 'Entire recipe' or just the 'Recipe name', with the entire recipe being the default.

At the same time I changed the 'Method' option to show the 'Any words' selection as the default, which it was before, but didn't show as being selected.
