Now that I’ve shared some back to school lunch ideas, let’s tackle dinner!
If there’s a picky eater in your house or you stare blankly at the screen, wondering what to serve each night, Tech Savvy Guest CEO David Feller encourages you to visit the new Yummly.com.
Lauched in late June, Yummly is like Pandora and Netflix, but instead of making personalized listening and viewing suggestions, Yummly.com provides perfect recipes that meets your family’s tastes. Yummly ‘understands’ food and ‘learns’ what your family like to eat, to intuitively make custom meal recommendations by letting you search 500,000 recipes from leading cooking sites like Epicurious, All Recipes, The Food Network, Gourmet, Food + Wine, Bon Appetit. But enough raves from this food lover and Yummly fan! Here’s David to share more about the site!
By David Feller, Yummly CEO
Have you ever wished you could find a way to make broccoli and spinach appetizing to your four year old, longed for a way to find a meal that would please the picky palates of your entire family, or maybe just wanted a tool that would let you recalculate the nutritional value of a recipe based on your ingredient substitutions? Finding a nutritious meal that everyone in your family will eat might be difficult, but it’s not impossible – and now, it just got a little easier…
If you’re constantly short on ideas for meals that everyone will eat and enjoy, then Yummly has you covered. Founded on my own distaste for mustard, Yummly was created especially for picky eaters. Our unique recipe search engine, the Yummly FoodFinder, was designed to learn and remember your tastes to make meal planning a breeze. Simply create a profile and share your family’s favorite foods and the ones that you or your little ones refuse to touch with a ten foot pole (after all, it’s all about compromise isn’t it?), and Yummly will instantly narrow your recipe search results to include only recipes that match your family tastes.
Using the various filters in the side bar, you can specify the recipe your hunting for right down to its flavor (salty, sweet, savory, sour or bitter), cuisine type (feeling like Mexican? Mediterranean?), meal course, cost per serving, or the preparation time required to make it. You can also specify specific diets that you observe or allergens you need to avoid – from vegetarian and vegan, to gluten or dairy-free diets – and your preferred recipe source (like Epicurious, AllRecipes and others). And thanks to Yummly’s easy-to-read, step-by-step instructions, you can even start enlisting your own little Wolfgang Puck or Barefoot Contessa to help out.
Once you begin finding and rating recipes, Yummly gets a better idea of what you like and can start making recipe suggestions in accordance with your tastes – the more you use it, the better it gets to know you and ‘understand’ your preferences – and can even deliver weekly hand-selected recipe recommendations right to your email inbox. Gone are the days of aimlessly searching recipe sites trying to find something that looks good and fits with what your family will eat – Yummly brings your next great meal idea right to you in just a few mouse clicks.
With your Yummly profile you can start enjoying other perks as well, like saving recipes with your own tweaks and modifications, making friends with other like-minded foodies to build a community of ‘TasteBuds’, or importing your favorites from other websites to your Yummly recipe box. And we also make it easy to email and print recipes in easy-to-read formats, so you don’t have to worry about spilling on your keyboard when your making your meal. It’s been known to happen! : )
There are countless recipe sources on the web, but Yummly is the only one that gives you everything you need to make cooking and meal planning easy and fun – right in one place. Foodies and non-foodies alike are making Yummly their go-to site for recipes and meal planning because of its approachable, easy-to-use format, great visuals and intelligent search capabilities.
Yummly knows what’s for dinner – do you?
