Using Recipe Collections
Recipe collections offer a quick way to organize related recipes, such as by cuisine, ingredients, or theme.
AnyList includes recipe collections named Main Dishes and Side Dishes to help you get started, but you can create as many recipe collections as you’d like and a single recipe can be added to multiple collections.
