Hunting For Free Online Recipes?

The hunt for free online recipes is one we’ve all been on at one time or another. With so much content on the Internet, it just makes sense to look for what you need online, rather than going the ancient route of buying a cookbook.

And there is a ton of material out there! The “huge three” recipe sites alone, AllRecipes, Cooking.com and Cooks.com, contain more aggregated recipes than a whole library of cookbooks rolled together. While some of their content is only available by subscription, and they are pretty heavy on the ads and on product promotions, they’re a excellent backstop for your quick recipe searches.

If you’re looking for something truly special, though, you might want to cast your net a bid wider. You’d be amazed at how many sites include recipes as part of their content.

Cable channels: You’d expect recipe content from Food Network, of course, but sites like Discovery and Travel Channel will occasionally have searchable recipe content. The huge four TV networks, especially ABC and NBC, have excellent recipe databases attached to their morning shows, “Today” and “Excellent Morning America,” although you’ll usually have to root around a bit to find them.

Corporate sites: It just makes sense for food manufacturers to have recipes for their products on their Web sites. Of course, you’re going to have product plugs as part of the content, but if you’re in search of the ancient standby chicken and mushroom soup casserole recipe for free online, you’re pretty much going to accept the Campbell’s version, right?

Clubs and fan pages: This can be the right gold mine for those who are willing to do a bit of searching. Every food-related show has at least one fan page, and many of them are hugely valuable when it comes to recipes. Of course you’ll get the recipes from the shows, but anytime you get a group of foodies together you’re also going to get their own “home” recipes and other concoctions. If they have a message board, you can also post there and question for help finding what you want.

The search for free online recipes doesn’t have to lead you down the same road every time. Go exploring!
