Ok, many of you iPhone pros may already know this trick.  But one of my friends just showed me how to create a Gimme Some Oven app icon on my iPhone, and I had to share it with you!!

Basically, it is just a simple way to create an icon on your homepage for any website (or, um, food blog) that you love.  So instead of having to open a browser like Safari or Chrome, you can go straight to the source.  Brilliant!

Hope this little tutorial might be a help to you!
