5 Reasons I adore the Yummly App

1.When you open the app it will bring you to the trending recipes .

2. You can set your dietary preferences to
A) leave out things like peanuts,wheat,soy, etc..if you have have allergies to these ingredients
Or
B) You can look for vegetarian, vegan etc...if you want to filter your search based on these restrictions

3. I know the nutritional information of each recipe whether I filter or not

4. I know how much time I am going to spend cooking ,including the prep time

5. I can organize my saved recipes

I love this app Food Network was good but no nutritional information and I guess with all the different chefs it would be difficult ,I guess but this app is a definite keeper

About This blog

My fondest memoreis in my life are the ones at my grandmother's table.I loved not only the warm,velvety ,slightly sweet 7-up cake, but the affirmation that I was loved. What started out as a creative outlet and a place to honor her loving,generous spirit has evolved into a food blog where I can blather on about recipes, food trends, and basically any food related topic that foodies would like, ....you get the idea. I am sure my family and anyone I've been friendly with for more than 2 minutes will breathe a collective sigh of relief, since I don't have to dump my food conversations on them all the time. Thank you for sharing this journey of exploration with me.
