The Dangers Of Free Online Recipes

Hunting for free online recipes can bring you all manner of treasures, and your printer cartridge will run out of ink long before you exhaust the supply of available recipes. There are infinite variations on every theme, with even a search for something as simple as tuna casserole or macaroni and cheese bringing back millions of options.

While you are usually safe trusting recipes from sites like Food Network, where most of the recipes come through their kitchens or from one of their on-air personalities, once you get away from such places you’re launching your boat into unknown waters. Even on the Food Network site, you’ll occasionally find recipes with disclaimers saying they are untested by the FN chefs.

But, you say, if someone took the time to post the recipe online, isn’t it safe to say that it’s workable? Why would someone post something that won’t work? It’s rarely out of malice, of course, but usually it is a lack of editing that throws free online recipes off track.

Take, for example, the home cook who posts his or her recipes online at their favorite food site. That person, while she may produce tasty foods from the stove or oven, is likely not a professional cookbook editor, and in all likelihood will type in the recipe, save it and never look at it again.

The error there will most likely be in the process, or directions. The home cook knows how she makes the recipe, and has all the steps in her head. If a step is very small, or something she perhaps added on to the original recipe and never wrote on the recipe card, it may not make it to the computer screen. It takes a different sort of mindset to translate from note card to screen, and a very careful mental filter.

The other most common error is in ingredients, either through omission or failure to use. An ingredient may be left off the list, and mentioned in the directions, or place in the ingredients and never mentioned in the description.

Read any recipe that catches your eye very carefully before you hit the print button. If it doesn’t make sense to you, don’t print it!
