    Default foodily

    Over the last few weeks, I have signed up for a number of google
    alerts having to do with food and cookbooks. Today, one of those
    alerts led me to foodily, which is a food search engine that
    allows one to compare recipes side by side. I just searched for
    "channa masala", and, based on the results, this looks promising.
    What do you think?

    What's a "google alert"?

    I know I could google this, but I'm lazy.

    You can sign up for emails telling you when certain specified
    terms come up on the web or in blogs each day. Hint: use
    quotation marks.

    So, did you look at foodily?

    Interesting site. I wish I could exclude certain sites, like
    cooks.com.

    I searched for scotch eggs and the first 12 recipes were relevant,
    then it got into recipes that contained "Scotch" in the title and eggs
    in the ingredients. And then back to Scotch Eggs recipes again.

    Yes. I actually saw mention of it on a food list I am on, and I
    didn't even look, because I was suspicious. But it is fine and
    may be useful.

    Odd. So, it has its issues, I guess. Still, I may play with it a
    bit.

    It's a great idea, nice looking site too.
    Is it just me or does it only search in english speaking websites?

    Go here:

    It should be self explanatory.

    PS I wondered whether using quotation marks would make a
    difference. Alas, it seems not to. I think whoever put this
    together should change this.

    There is no such thing as "self explanatory" when it comes to sf. You
    have to retype everything from that link into a Usenet message so she
    understands.

    It should be in flux if it's still in Beta.

    Interesting site. I bookmarked it. Not sure if it will be helpful, but
    it might be fun to play with.
