The RecipeSheet is a spreadsheet-inspired environment for building applications that support the parallel, side-by-side exploration of alternative processing results. Our early investigations suggest that such an environment can be valuable for educational activities in which a student's understanding of some topic would be improved by being able to explore and compare many alternative cases. In this paper, oriented towards readers who are familiar with the Squeak environment on which the RecipeSheet has been built, we explain and illustrate the facilities available to end users for building their own applications. This is a step towards a release of the RecipeSheet to the community of educators who are excited by the general promise of Squeak, and the various kinds of tool that can be built with it.
