This site is my new guilty pleasure. I have spent countless hours here since discovering it and will probably continue to rack up hours here as I discover more fantastic food information.
Let’s get the membership talk out of the way – if you want to save, rate, or share recipes, then you’ll need to register for a free account. This is easy to do. Either click Join Now on the banner across the very top of the screen or click the orange Join Now button under the login fields in the center of the page. Fill out the form with the required information and decide if you want to opt-in for any of the newsletters, then scroll to the bottom of the page and click the Submit button.
Once you’ve signed up, you’ll have three options presented to you. You can be directed straight to your profile page, directed back to the page you were on before you joined, or be directed back to the main page. Make your selection and start browsing the site!
There are plenty of interesting things to explore directly off the main page, so I’ll leave you to explore that on your own and just tell you about the sections of the site. The site is divided up into three main sections, they are: Recipes & Menus, Articles & Guides, and Community.
Recipes & Menus – if you hold your mouse over the heading for this section a drop down menu will come up featuring some of the categories for this section. You can also click the heading and be directed to that section of the site. I recommend clicking the heading because it basically whisks you away to Recipe Central! You’ll see featured recipes, all the different recipe and menu categories, and if you’re anything like me, you’ll be lost for hours adding recipes to your favorites!
Articles & Guides – navigation here works the same as the Recipe section. My recommendation is the same; just click the heading and go directly to the section. You don’t want to miss out on any of the featured information. This is where you’ll find cooking tips, articles, blogs, and so much more. It’s apple season, so don’t miss the article on how to pick the best apple!
Community – This is where you’ll edit your profile, add recipes, and connect with other members of the site. This is also where you’ll find member generated content via the member groups. Don’t miss out on the Cooks Tools section, on the right hand side of the page. You’ll find things like the helpful Food Dictionary there!
This is definitely a food site you want to bookmark!
