First and foremost--FOOD!

Google Recipes
It's always been pretty easy to find recipes on the Internet. I usually name a dish or a few key ingredients and add the word "recipe." That works fine and I personally wouldn't spend long hours trying to make the search easier. But, as luck would have it, someone else has. Tara Calishain in Research Buzz has created a custom Google search which looks at 140 (and counting) recipe sites. There are two things I like about Cookin' with Google. First, the results will only be from cooking/recipe sites. Second, with the search results you get a list of refinements such as vegetarian, Atkins, diabetic, gluten-free, etc. Click on one of these limiters and you will only get recipes in that narrow category. Cool, huh? By the way, Research Buzz is a great blog for people who like to find work-arounds, customize search tools and otherwise make searching more efficient.
