All about the Yum – how to use Yummly

November 30, 2015 By Cathy — 2 Comments

Do you remember when finding a recipe meant flipping through your grandma’s copy of Joy of Cooking or trying to decipher your mom’s handwriting on a stained index card tucked into a recipe box?  It’s hard to believe how much has changed over the last several years.  It’s never been easier and more engaging to explore new recipes or get inspiration for your next meal than today. Yummly is a fantastic resource that has simplified finding and saving recipes, organizing them into virtual cookbooks and even creating your own shopping list directly from a saved recipe.

Don’t have time to run to the store?  One of my favorite features is finding a recipe to cook right now by browsing through recipes with ingredients you have on hand or even omitting ingredients you don’t.  The search parameters are endless, you can search by time, season, taste preference, specific diet, allergies and on and on.

Once you’ve signed up on Yummly, a simple click of the Yum button will save a recipe to your recipe box.  You can yum away on Yummly’s website or click the Yum button on any blog or website that has it installed.  I just so happen to include the Yum button after every recipe I post, so you can add my recipes to your recipe box directly from my blog.

You can also go straight to my Yummly profile page to browse through my recipes there.

The more you Yum, the better Yummly understands your preferences and tastes and will provide recommendations to you.  Another great feature is Yummly discuss which is a forum to ask or answer a cooking related question, get advice or share your cooking tips.

I know you’ll find Yummly to be a great resource in the kitchen and I hope you’ll Yum my recipes to your own recipe box once you’ve signed up.  Now get to yumming!

  1. Haha, I totally have some of those passed down stained index cards! Where would we ever be without the internet and convenience? I don’t have yummly on my site, but this post is making me wonder why! Thanks for sharing the 411, dear! Cheers!! 🙂

      seriously, how did we ever survive without the internet and our virtual recipe boxes? though i do sometimes pull out those old, tattered recipes…one day i’ll have to type them up to save before they’re ripped to shreds!
