I have personally been using Yummly for my recipe searches and ideas for months. It is just organized really well and has some neat features. Finally, we have put Caribbean Trading Company’s recipes up there! So now you can save all of your favorite recipes to your Yummly recipe box.
It is probably best described as “Pinterest for foodies”, and any recipe you “Yum” (“Pin” in Pinterest terms) is stored in your personal recipe box for easy access and overview.
You can also create multiple “Collections” (“Boards” in Pinterest terms) to organize your recipe box further, and when searching for new recipes on Yummly you’ve got lots of smart filters to apply to the search results to narrow it down to what you are looking for.
What’s really cool is the “Just for you” feature which gives you personalized recommendations based on the preferences you’ve stated in your profile, and “Paleo” is an option! So is “Gluten-Free”, “Dairy-Free”, “Soy-Free” etc. Strangely enough though “Sugar-Free” is not an option, but you are given the possibility to add disliked ingredients by free text, so that’s no issue. You can even filter out foods you are allergic to.
