I’m contacted fairly regularly by websites that want to exchange links or otherwise get a mention from CBSOP. For the most part, these sites have nothing to do with cooking, food or recipes and are ignored summarily. Every once-in-a-while though, someone contacts me with a site that I feel is worth passing along to the folks that make this place what it is. You, the readers of this blog. You guys rock and I only want to let you know about things that you’ll actually be able to use. This is one of them.
Onlinerecipefinders.com is all of these things. Though it feels a bit spartan and is a tad clunky to use, the recipe finder functions as you would expect it to, in an “old school Google” kind of way. The results are relevant, the system is responsive and the amount of results is satisfying. In short if you hit the search recipe button, you’re gonna get a good lot of choices to browse through.
The results are all in PDF format, which is a bit of a drag, but it’s something I can live with. It only takes a second to pull up the file and read through it. Less time than many food blogs take to load. The plus side is that you can download recipes directly to your hard drive for later use; A very useful feature if you are just starting out on a digital recipe library since PDF’s index extremely well on both Mac and Windows and are searchable.
My end opinion is that this is a site with great potential. While I do think the site needs a bit more polish and user interface adjustments, the simple interface is refreshing, the results show what you’re looking for and the recipes are not just skimmed off of other food blogs. With some smoothing over it could very easily become one of my go-to reference libraries for inspiration and I give a thumbs-up to the developers of the site. They’ll have a winner if they keep it up.
I’ll be sure to let you know of any new happenings with this site. Why not go check it out for yourself?
