I’m stealing a few moments to myself, while my little one is sleeping, to tell you about a handy little website I came across this week which you may find useful to help you with menu planning, particularly as it’s coming up to Easter.
The website is called Foodily.com (Food I Love You) and it is a Californian site, described as “the world’s largest recipe network, bringing together recipes from across the web so you can compare any recipe.” Essentially, it is a food search engine that allows you to search for food and compare the results in a side-by-side comparison view.
Recipes are taken from all over the web, including BBC Good Food, Martha Stewart, Fine Cooking, Epicurious.com, Jamie Oliver and even from blogs. It really is very clever and I particularly love the way you can put together a whole menu, with a starter, main, sides, dessert etc and save the menu under a heading, for example, My Easter Menu.
You can also share the menu with friends and on Facebook. The recipes are uncomplicated, in most cases requiring five or so ingredients, the site is easy to use and I love it! It is really great for inspiration, such as Healthy Soup Recipes, Chicken Salad Recipes, Fish for Dinner, Meatball Recipes, Spring Vegetables and tons more. You can also search for recipes ‘without’ a particular ingredient, which is handy for me as I have a pepper allergy.
Hopefully this link will work – it should take you to My Easter Lunch – which includes
- Prosciutto wrapped asparagus
- Rosemary and honey roast lamb
- Scalloped potatoes
- Maple pan-roasted baby carrots
- Braised greens
- Pear and marzipan tartlets
