I discovered Yummly early 2019. Till then I used to source recipes from Google, and it would take me quite a lot of time because some of them might have ingredients that my family or I might not like or that are not in line with my eating habits. This is one of the essentials now on my phone and my favourites bar.
But what makes Yummly a great web/app?
It has more than a million recipes.
It integrates recipes from thousands of websites, and you can search them all in one place.
You can choose which ingredients and diets you want, and you do not wish to see in your feed.
Consolidation of recipes
All recipes use the same format, so it is easy to understand them. Now I do not need to figure out where on the page to find the ingredients.
Link to Original page
As an aggregator, it gives visibility to a lot of bloggers like me and shares the word of our recipes with an audience of 14 Million users. If you find the Yumm button on a recipe of a website you can click it, and you will send that recipe to Yummly.
Recipe customizations, ratings and reviews
I love to read comments of users that changed the sauce, added extra cheese or chilli. It is so valuable that sometimes right after reading the recipe I go to check the twists that the users have put in the comments to see if I like it more than the original.
Yummly Meal planner
You can pick several recipes and build your meal plans.
Along with the meal planner, Yummly let you add to a shopping list within the app the ingredients of any recipe
Order ingredients online
This is the cherry on top of the cake. You can order the ingredients from a recipe online. (Not available everywhere)
