How Do You Find Recipes Online?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Do you typically use search engines, food blogs, or do you have sites you go to? I am new to Gluten-Free and was wondering if others typically searched for gluten free recipes specifically or not.

I always search online - using google. Just type in the box, e.g., gluten-free recipe for chocolate cake, and you will be amazed what comes up, including all the gluten-free bloggers. :)

It depends on what I'm cooking.

If it's pancakes, I search for gluten-free pancakes of gluten-free Buckwheat pancakes, of gluten-free Potato Pancakes...

If it's for recipes involving protein, I search for cuisine that I love, like Thai, Vietnamese or Indian.

If I just returned from the farmers market with beets, I just search beet recipes. Going gluten-free has opened up a world of cooking. I'm glad I don't cook like my mother and grandmother, even though they were great cooks. It has been a lot of fun experimenting, and we've found many new ways to cook and season food that I never would have dreamed of.

Oops, I have a few typos on my post. Hit the "f" vs the "r" for "or" vs. "of". Sorry.

Welcome...

There are some great recipes under the recipe section here on celiac.com. If you are looking for something special just google the recipe name.. You can spend days researching gluten-free recipes...

I'm guessing you are from Pittsburgh??? Just wanted to let you know that this coming Saturday from 10-2 there will be an open house at the gluten free oven bakery in Mt Pleasant, Pa. Open to everyone... Samples will be available. Very nice gluten-free bakery. I will be there to assist newbies & to answer gluten-free food questions....

hope to see you there.... blessings

I just use google. Doesn't always work and I will sometimes get recipes that don't apply.

I google _____ gluten free. But I also ask here if I can't find what I want. It's actually pretty easy for me to find gluten-free recipes. I have a harder time finding recipes that are gluten-free, Dairy free, soy free without any shellfish, pork or mushrooms....Although the last three can usually be left out or switched for chicken or beef. The first three are hard.

I have a few favorite websites that I check if I want to find gluten-free recipes (just search for gluten-free xxxx and you'll usually find several recipes:

http://www.food.com/

http://allrecipes.com/

http://www.bettycrocker.com/

And, of course, your regular ol' cookbooks have a lot of recipes that are naturally gluten-free or can be made that way with a few simple substitutions.

Thanks for the tips! I've found some great recipes on these blogs that I can't wait to try!

Vegout,

Hi. Here's the link to lots of gluten-free blogs. They all probably have recipes. Just click on the letter at the bottom to move to the other letters of the alphabet:

Thanks! This directory is just what I've been looking for. I find that a lot of the big recipe sites have little to offer when searching for "gluten free____"

Don't forget your old cook books. A great many of those recipes (except for baking) are already gluten free or can be made that way easily (thicken with gluten-free flour, be sure ingredients are gluten-free etc.) We still eat most of the things we did pre-celiac.
