Happy Eat What You Want Day!

By Kelly Cronin
May 11th is national Eat What You Want Day - so you can put away the organic quinoa salad wraps and whip up your favorite, yummy meals (or just some delicious treats and pretend they count as a meal for today).  With OneNote, finding recipes online and storing them all in one place has never been easier.  In honor of this awesome springtime holiday, Managed Solution wants to show you how we're celebrating Eat What You Want Day with some of our favorite recipes, as well as tips and tricks for using OneNote in the kitchen!

  • Create a page for each new recipe, with the title of what you want to make.  You can insert the link of where you got the recipe from, so you can always go back and double check that you have all the ingredients and directions down correctly.
  • Make a "To-Do-List" for all your ingredients.  This keeps them organized, so you can check off each one as you grab it at the grocery store.  Use the OneNote App on your phone at the store to check it off as you're shopping, and it will update your list on your computer, too!
  • Have trouble remembering what steps you've already done? Cross out each line as you go, that way you won't have to struggle to remember whether you've added one or two cups of cheese already.

OneNote has a variety of different Tags you can choose from, to highlight, note, or remind yourself of certain things. Want to use this recipe for your Mom's birthday? Put a reminder at the top!
Use these tags to signify what's important in the recipe. Always forget to only add 2-3 tbsp of milk instead of all 4? Use the highlighter tool to make sure the measurement catches your eye. If you're sending the recipe to someone else, you might want to let them know what a key step in the recipe is.  For example, when you make this frosting, it will not come out right until you add that last cup of powdered sugar, so add a critical tag next to that step.

If you have a really wordy recipe, the highlighter tool can be really handy to help you pick out which ingredients you need for each step.  Instead of spending your time squinting at the recipe, quickly check to see what you need and when you need it.
Easily insert multiple items on OneNote, including PDF documents, word documents, file attachments, images, links, equations, and even audio recordings. Sometimes trying to remember what a recipe is just based off the name can be hard - so add a picture to show what the food ends up looking like! It will inspire you to make your version just as eye-catching (and yummy, too!)
Adding an audio recording is an awesome way to put feedback about recipes that you might not be able to describe with text.  If you want to remind yourself to add more pepper next time, but your hands are too sticky to type all that, just use a quick audio recording on your OneNote. You can always play it back later and write down what you say, or simply leave it as it is.  Want to really get fancy? Try recording your whole cooking process - you'll be a Top Chef in the making!


Happy Eat Whatever You Want Day - go forth and indulge.

Below are some tech tips for your Fourth of July weekend! Our 24/7 on-call support will be available throughout the holiday for any urgent support needs and can be reached at 800-550-3795, Option 2.

Fireworks photos

If you’re watching a fireworks show, chances are you may take a few photos with your phone. A few basic tips: Turn off your flash, avoid shakiness, don’t zoom in, tinker with your camera’s exposure settings, and try burst mode.
If you aren’t satisfied with the features of your built-in camera, the Wall Street Journal has some good app recommendations, including Camera+ (iOS and Android) and Nokia Camera (Windows).
Also, if you prefer to just take video, Vhoto is a cool iPhone app that finds the best photos in your videos.

Star gazing

Once all that smoke from the fireworks dissipates, you may be able to see stars — especially if you’re in an area without much light on the ground.
Sky Guide, is a digital planetarium for the iPhone and iPad that makes it easy to see all the stars and constellations nearby. When users first fire up the app, they’ll be asked to let it access their location, and it will then show them a 360 degree map of all the stars and constellations around them.
Users interested in learning more about a particular star or constellation can tap on it to pull out a drawer with plenty of facts.
For Android users, Sky Map is equally as awesome.

Digital detox

Maybe you are looking forward to spending Fourth of July weekend not having to constantly check your smartphone every five minutes — perhaps a digital detox is in order.
If that’s the case, the simple and cheap way to detach from your gadget is to, well, stop using it. Disable your internet connection, put your phone on silent — heck, just turn it off if you really don’t want to be distracted.
For iOS users, check out this guide from Lifehacker that helps smartphone addicts who want to enjoy the weekend without the distracting device.
