the most awesome virtual recipe box ever

My officemate and good friend, Kady, jokingly calls me "google girl" because I love google and all their cool gidgets and gadgets that make life online easier.  I know google has it's drawbacks, and they probably know more about me that I know about me, but still you have to admit . . . This is just too cool!

Google_recipeWhat is this?  It is Google's virtual recipe box (still in beta).

When you choose something from the pull down menus (which are actually checklists), the listings below instantly change to meet your criteria.  How cool is that!?! 

The pull down menus available to you and the options inside them also change according to what you have checked in the other pull down menus. 

You can even choose "grid view" and see the photos associated with the recipes (of course sometimes that might mean a picture of grandma, but I am sure she is the cook). 

You can sort by a myriad of options so that the listing (or grid) falls into line in the way that best fits your needs.

Clicking on a recipe could take you to either a website hosting the info or a special "google base" page dedicated to that specific item.

Speaking of "Google Base," the virtual recipe box is actually just a small part of the larger "Google Base," which is way bigger (and just a tiny bit scary):

Google's goal is to organize the world's information, and that includes
almost anything you might want to contribute, whether it's your store
inventory, collection of original poetry, or research paper on cancer
receptors. You can submit your information using either the standard
web form or, if you have more than 10 items to submit, via our bulk
upload options.

Wow.  Just wow.  Google (the noun) is giving all new meaning to google (the verb).

Don't forget you can still vote for amanda. hint. hint. :)


  1. That is way cool! Thanks for sharing this!!

  2. Cool. Thanks for pointing that out. I actually used yesterday. They have an advanced search, so I picked a couple of ingredients and went from there. But Google's version certainly has possibilities.
