What is Food Blog Search?

Food blogs are a wonderful source of recipes, stories, and opinions about food. These blogs are the labors of love of countless people from around the world who are so passionate about what they cook and eat they spend hours photographing and writing about it. Food bloggers usually give much more information and personal touches to what they write about than commercial cooking or recipe sites. Search for a recipe among food blogs and you'll often be delighted by the hidden jewels you uncover.

Food Blog Search is a custom built search engine specifically for searching recipes in food blogs. It is intended to be a useful tool for food bloggers and for scratch cooks looking for recipes and inspiration. Food Blog Search uses Google technology, through the Google Custom Search Engine program. Started in October 2006, Food Blog Search now searches over two thousand hand-selected, high quality food blogs. More and more food blogs are added to the list of sites searched every day.

The best way to use the search engine

In a word, be specific. "Apple tart" will give you much more useful results (if you are looking for apple tart recipes) than "apple recipes". The larger, more established blogs will tend to show up highest in the search results because that's just how Google's search function works. So be ready to page through the results to find results from newer blogs.
