Recipe Search

There are a number of ways to find the perfect recipe to suit your needs. If you have a particular ingredient or recipe in mind, simply enter keywords in the Search box at the top of any page and click "Search."

The search results page will show a list of recipes sorted by relevance. If you prefer, you can re-sort the list by recipe rating, alphabetically or by contest-winning recipes. You can also switch from List view to Gallery View.

Narrow your search using the options on the left side of the list, including Course, Ingredients, Occasion, Special Diets, Cooking Style and more. To view related articles, videos and community recipes, use the additional links on the left side of the list.

Click on the name or image of any recipe to view a Recipe Detail Page that includes a large color photo, nutritional analysis and a variety of tools to make it easy for you to prepare, organize and share Taste of Home recipes. First, there are three options to print: full page, 3x5 or 4x6 dimensions. Simply select the print icon and drop-down menu for the desired size for printing. You can also email a recipe to up to four friends. As a registered member, you can add the recipe to your recipe box and prepare a shopping list for all ingredients needed to make the recipe.
