How-Tuesday: How to Find a Killer Recipe Online
I have a secret. Shhhh... don't tell.... ready? I'm not actually a great cook, I'm a great Googler. I don't make up fabulous recipes, but I know how to find them. So my how-to for this week is how to use the internet to find an awesome recipe.
1. Step 1 is to find a good website. I prefer Allrecipes because it's widely used by normal people (as opposed to more skilled foodies, who may rate recipes differently than I would).
3. Then click on a category and click on "Top 20."
5. Or, another food site where you really can't go wrong is an old favorite of mine that I'm always mentioning, Our Best Bites. That link goes to their recipes index, where you can search for desserts, poultry dishes, appetizers, etc. I've never made anything from their site that I didn't love.
So there you go! Next time you need to impress with your cooking, turn to the World Wide Web. The collective wisdom of millions of internet users can't be wrong!
