Genius New Searchable Recipe Index- We have that technology!

When he took time out from being my bartender and sous chef (see above), my husband Mike would update the recipe index page on this blog. Eventually, he thought there were too many recipes, making it cumbersome to find what you wanted just by scanning the list. Being the smart and wonderful guy that he is, he built a database for the recipes and created a search function so it is a piece of cake to find exactly what you want.

Click on the "Recipe Search" link in the right column and check it out. You can simply pull up all the recipes in the "desserts" category OR you can search using a keyword, say "chocolate," within that category. If you want to see all my recipes with the keyword, "tomato" just leave the category on "All" and type "tomato" into the box.

Pretty cool, right? Even I get tired of reading through my list of over a hundred recipes just to find that chicken thing I remember making about eight months ago.

One tip: remember to type your keywords in the singular form, for example "tomato" instead of "tomatoes," and you should find what you want. If you use the search and notice any bugs, send me an email and I'll get my fabulous tech guy on it right away.

Searchable recipe index is pretty smart! Still, Mike would be the treasure I'd guess!
