Hello, everyone! This is just a quick post to share a very helpful tool that I found, Yummly.
I think Yummly is the next Pinterest for food. I realize that’s a bold statement, but hear me out. When you search for “green beans” in Pinterest, what do you find? A picture, with a caption that the author of the recipe created. You have to click on the picture, then read through a post to decide if the recipe is interesting to you or not.
On Yummly, when you create a profile, they ask you questions. What type of food are you interested in cooking? How skilled of a cook are you? Do you have any allergies? These questions, along with a really great searching tool helps you quickly narrow recipes down to exactly the ones that fit your criteria. Within search results, you can hover over a picture of a recipe and see a quick snapshot of the ingredients. Not interested? Great, you can move to the next one without even clicking on anything!
Once you find a recipe you want to make, the fun really begins. You can save the recipe by “yumming” it, and also categorize it. For example, you create a “favorite veggie sides” list for easy reference, like the tabs you see in a cookbook! And then you can build your grocery list from your saved recipes. You heard me! Yummly has the ingredients saved for each recipe. You can select what you want to make that week, and it’ll make a consolidated grocery list for you. Awesome, right?
I really love using Yummly for my personal meal planning, and I sincerely think you will too. Follow me there, and get to searching for your new favorite recipes.
Here’s a little sneak peek of my recipes on Yummly:
