Now you are probably wondering exactly what Yummly is and why do I need it. Well, I’m super excited to tell you why. Yummly is a site where every recipe you can imagine is available and right at your fingertips. It’s kind of like a digital recipe box where you can store all your favorites and those that might become your favorites.
You can search by category or ingredients, diet, allergies, ask cooking questions and even get nutritional information. They also send you recipe suggestions based on your likes and a smart shopping list to help you whip up that something special.
Yummly has over 15 million monthly users and is a fantastic resource for every chief cook & bottle washer out there and a fantastic tool for food bloggers to help drive more traffic to their site. In fact, it’s driven so much more traffic than Pinterest to our site since we joined 2 months ago that we are over the moon happy with it.
Now let me show you how simple it is to join and use.
