Do You Love Yummly Yet?

Yum
I've just recently gotten started using the recipe site called Yummly and I'm loving it. In fact, I love it so much, I want to share it with YOU!

Yummly has been around since 2010, so maybe you've already heard about it or maybe you even have the app. In any case, it's a great place to visit when you want to find and store great recipes and food that your family will love.

Search the site for recipes by ingredient, by occasion, by taste (salty, savory, sour, etc.), by diet (Paleo, vegan), cuisines, courses, sources, ingredients to include, ingredients to exclude, and more. Really, narrow it down and you can find anything you might not even know you're looking for, and especially the food and recipes that you are looking for!  The more you find and "yum," the more recipes Yummly recommends specifically for you and your tastes, preferences, or needs. It's fun!

Here's the Yummly page for Recipes for Real People. All the recipes featured on that page came from this blog. If you take a look, you'll see a "yum" button on the bottom right corner of each recipe picture along with a number. The number reflects how many times that recipe has been shared, or "yummed," on Yummly. As I write this, it's only been a couple of days since I started using Yummly and I'm absolutely thrilled at how my numbers are climbing. That means people are finding and loving my recipes! Of course I've found plenty of other people's recipes to yum and they're filling up my Yummly recipe box fast, too.

You don't have to have a recipe blog to use Yummly. Simply use it (kind of like Pinterest) to "yum" recipes that you run across online. It's super-easy to do when you install the Yum button on your bookmark bar. Visit the site and you'll find directions that explain how to do it (drag and drop). All recipes that you "yum" go into your personal recipe box.

Visit Yummly's home page, or start with the Recipe for Real People page and feel free to hit that "Yum" button often. Then anytime you're browsing this blog, remember to use the "yum" button you'll find at the top of every post to add our recipes to your Yummly recipe box for safekeeping.

Caution: Once you get started with Yummly, you may not want to stop. Don't say I didn't warn you!

  1. As a foodie and food writer, I run across Yummly recipes many times a day, but I haven't stopped to learn what it's about or why I have to take that extra step of clicking through to get to the actual recipe. Now I know. Thank you for the introduction, Susan! It's time I get to know Yummly better.

    1. You're quite welcome, yayyayskitchen! As a food writer, you should take a few minutes to look into Yummly's publisher's program. I think you'll like what you see. Appreciate your comment!

  2. I only started using Yummy myself a few days ago, but I have high hopes for it. It does seem like a really great site. Thank you for the recommendation! I will definitely be watching for your "Yums" so I can add them to my collections too.

    1. And I'll be doing the same with yours, Cynthia. I'm sure I've already added some of your wonderful recipes and certainly will be adding more. Glad you stopped by!

    1. Awesome! I'm pretty sure I've "yum'd" some of your recipes. I'll be looking for you!

  5. I haven't discovered this site yet, since I'm not quite the foodie I used to be, nor the cook I used to be. Maybe I should check out the site just to get our of my rut.

  6. Barbara, Yummly is a great site for getting us out of our cooking ruts! Try searching for "quick" or "easy," or by ingredient you bought because it was on sale (chicken legs) or choose by course or cuisine. The search is a great place to start then it's easy to narrow down your favorites from there. Hope you find some recipes you love!
