You know the predicament: You need a recipe, you visit your favorite search engine and ? wham ? a million potential suppers appear on the screen. Who's to know which one is destined for you ? and which will work?
Yummly does. Developed by a former eBay exec, this intuitive recipe searcher lets you quickly find recipes from some of the web's best cooking sites (like Epicurious, Food Network and Real Simple) in one snappy interface.
What's more, Yummly will filter its recommendations based on your food proclivities (or allergies). You can get so specific ? and create a profile to store your info and favorites ? that each search generates a manageable list of dependable recipes, instead of the laundry list of duds that frequently come up on other sites.
There's also TasteBuds, a networking area where you can share recipes and swap cooking tips with other members. Think of it as Facebook for foodies.
Unlike many recipe sites, Yummly is loaded with tempting images, so it's an inviting site to browse even when you're not rushing to get dinner on the table.
