Here's a Magical App That Turns Online Recipes Into Digital Grocery Lists

By: Lawrence Bonk

How many times has this happened to you? You read an amazing sounding recipe for cherry glazed ribs in one of your favorite blogs but then the act of actually figuring out what to buy and where to buy it becomes too much for you so, instead, you eat a bag of cheese puffs and take a nap. Suffer no longer! There's an app for that.

Introducing Parsly, a web application that turns recipes found on the Blogger platform into automatic digital grocery lists. Even more, these lists are sent to participating grocers so your food can be waiting for you when you walk in the door like some kind of modern King Joffrey.
