Recipe Puppy – Recipe Search Engine

Have you ever wanted to cook or bake something and then flipped through a recipe book looking for something tasty only to check your pantry to find you don’t have all the ingredients and it’s too late (or you don’t want to) go out and get the rest of the ingredients?

To the rescue comes a new beta search engine called Recipe Puppy which asks you either for a list of ingredients or keywords and it will find you matching recipes.


Say for example all you have are the following:

  • butter
  • flour
  • vanilla extract
  • cocoa powder
  • baking powder
  • salt

Now instead of going through your recipe books and finding matching recipes, let the Recipe Puppy do it for you – simply enter the ingredients in the field provided and hit search.

You can quickly spot the other ingredients by the little + (plus) sign infront of them in each search result – in case you forgot what else you already have and didn’t add to the list – and you don’t need to type them in – just click on the suggested ingredients on the right and voila – search resutls updated.

  2. Awesome! This is just a very cool idea. Great find!

    @baldricman — you could always produce an enhanced version (unless the concept has been patented). 🙂
