The Problem With Google's New Recipe Search

Illustration for article titled The Problem With Googles New Recipe Search

"As it stands, Google's recipe search gives undue advantage to the "quick & easy" recipe sites, encourages dishonesty, and sets up people to be dissuaded from cooking, as they will soon learn that recipes always end up taking more time than they expected.

DISCUSSION

I mostly use allrecipes.com. True, it's a big site, but I find it really useful that most of the recipes have comments so I can get multiple people's opinions on a recipe. When I try recipes from sites without comments, it's much more of gamble whether it'll turn out as delicious as it looks in the picture.
