Yummly Not Quite Vegetarian

Have you heard of Yummly?

If not, and you’re a home cook or have a recipe website, I suggest you read this post, then go check  it out.

Yummly is a recipe website with over 1 million recipes.  I’ve been publishing on it for some months now and am very happy with it, both as a blogger and as a home cook.

Yummly  has a powerful recipe search function, a personal digital recipe box  for each member and individual recipe recommendations based on your personal dietary and food preferences.    

Because I’m very much into meal planning and saving time, I particularly like its iPhone, iPad and Android apps which let you take a smart shopping list with you, wherever you go.

You can add your own recipes to your Yummly recipe box by using the  easy to complete recipe template form.  Or if you have a website, use the bookmarklet or add the share icon to your recipe and use that.


Yummly has a Nutrition Facts table and a handy taste guide for each recipe, a community forum and an amazing support team, so you’re never stuck for advice or support if you have a question.
