I admit I often use Google to search for recipes, but I get frustrated when their search results so often show the same old sites over and over. I already know about those sites! And I do use them…but I use Google when I feel like exploring a bit more. Enter Google recipe search. It’s a long URL. If the link doesn’t work or later you want to get there without coming back here, just enter “recipes” in the Google search bar and they’ll offer you the option of their recipe search right at the top.
Once there you can enter keywords, cuisine, main ingredient, course, prep time, meal type, plus limit by servings, calories, cholesterol and–my favorite!–set it to search only individual contributors rather than the top 10 recipes sites you already know about.
I also just learned that you can enter something like “ham bone -beans” in the regular Google search to find things with a ham bone but no beans. (Although really, if you have a ham bone, why would you NOT cook beans? Okay, maybe some greens with ham broth you’ve made from the bone. (And, by the way, you’ll still see recipes with lentils and split peas. I don’t think it’s smart enough to say -legumes.) Dang, now I want to cook a ham so I have the ham bone.
How do YOU find new recipes?
