Tip of the Week

There's nothing quite like sharing a meal to keep you connected to friends and family.

Because so much of our lives are managed online these days, a few tech tips can help keep your life gourmet.

Share recipes: When you can't be in the same dining room, connecting digitally over a shared passion for food is the next best thing. Share recipes via email and upload photos into cloud storage.

Restaurant hop: Stay up to date on the local restaurant scene using online resources. A built-in calendar via your email provider can schedule dinner dates and keep track of reservations, and invite others along for the fun.

Food delivery: Subscribe to your favorite food blogs and websites to never miss a great recipe, then use built-in organization tools to ensure your inbox doesn't get too cluttered.

Potluck time: Send invitations and collaborate on a menu online. Create a shareable signup sheet so friends can tell the group what they plan to bring.
