How to use Yummly
Yummly is a site that I love to use to store recipes from my own kitchen, and recipes from other food bloggers that I follow.
Many food bloggers, such as myself, have found social media sharing buttons that include the YUM button, to make it easy for you to save our recipes to your recipe box. If you find a recipe you’d like to save, and the blogger doesn’t use social media sharing buttons that include the YUM button, you can download an extension in many website browsers, such as Google Chrome. Just search for Yummly. When you find a recipe you want to save, you just hit the YUM button on your toolbar, and it will save the recipe to your personal recipe box on the Yummly website.
You can also discover recipes that other Yummly users have saved to their recipe boxes. Once one person yums a recipe, it’s in the system for others to find in searches.
I am a huge fan of the option to organize my recipes into collections. Casseroles. Desserts. Pasta. Mexican. Personalize it to your preferences!
The feature I think many of you will like the most, is the ability to search recipes in their system by allergies and/or dietary preferences! I have food allergies of my own, so I know how difficult and frustrating it can be to find a recipe idea that fits within my needs. I DO make meals I can’t eat because of my allergies, because my family doesn’t have the same issues. I simply make something else for myself. They shouldn’t have to avoid seafood or tree nut meals just because I can’t have them, in my opinion.
There is more information on How to use Yummly available on the Yummly website.
I hope you’ll consider checking it out. This isn’t a sponsored or endorsed post, it’s a site that I use and enjoy on a daily basis. If you’re a food blogger, it’s a great way to find other food blogs that share similar food preferences. If you’re a reader, it’s a great way to easily support the food blogs you read (it gets us exposure as more people Yum our recipes), and a fantastic way to organize your online recipes.
