I've covered quite a few recipe search engines in this space; Foodieview, Recipe Puppy, recipe search by ingredient and how to do it on the Web to name just a few. However, I think I might have found my new favorite recipe search tool, and that is Yummly.
Yummly is in a word, fantastic. It's a meta search engine that brings back results from several different recipe search sites (Epicurious, AllRecipes, RecipeZaar, etc.), so you can get a nice variety of results. But the best part about Yummly? The ability to hyper-filter your results: ingredients, taste, cuisines, courses, prep time and price, nutrition, diets, and allergies. In just seconds you can personalize your menu to your unique tastes and preferences:
Every recipe you bring back has a "ratings" box next to it so you can instantly see what the predominant taste might be, how costly the ingredients are, how many calories per serving, how long it takes to prepare the meal, etc.
As someone who loves to cook, I'm really looking forward to playing around with Yummly a bit more. Try it out and let me know what you think!
