Finding a Recipe
How to Search for a Recipe
Believe it or not, I use this blog as my own personal recipe book. I have most of the recipes I’ve posted on my computer in my cookbook…which eventually I will someday finish editing and make it available to you guys. But there are many recipes that I created just for the blog, recipes from other guest bloggers (and of course JeffW) that I don’t keep on file anywhere else.
And, don’t tell the guys, but sometimes I need to look for a recipe at work so I can stop at the market on the way home, so it’s nice to be able to pull up the blog and get it from here. What I love about the blog is I can search by recipe name or ingredient and find what I need no matter when the original was posted. Then I print it out and take it with me.
I started thinking the other day that you may not know how to search for recipes on the blog, so I decided a quick tutorial might be needed. It is very simple:
Go to the Search W4DS box (which right now is at the top, right hand side of the page, it may not always be there)
Type in an ingredient and hit enter.
If that is too many choices, choose a couple of ingredients, like carrots, cake, pineapple.
This will bring you fewer recipes, or in this case, I was looking for the recipe formy carrot cake.
If you have a specific recipe in mind, say you want the ever popular steak coffee rub recipe, just put quotation marks around your search items: “coffee rub” and that will bring up all the references to the recipe.
I know this is all pretty simple stuff, but I wanted to make sure you could find any recipe anytime on our little blog. Once you find a recipe, let us know how it turned out for you, I’m always excited to know. Bon appétit!
