A Facebook for foodies? It seems too good to be true, but it’s not.
Foodily – short for “food I love you” – is a social network for foodies with a continuous feed of recipes from across the web. You can use the site to see what your friends are cooking, search and save recipes, and stash it all in your Facebook timeline. An easy-to-use search tool allows you to look for recipes based on ingredients, keywords, and even ingredients you don’t want to cook with. And there’sseparate tabs with photos and nutritional information for each recipe so you can keep your meals as healthy, decadent or diet-specific as you want.
And Foodily’s most recent addition? A panel of chef, cookbook author and celebrity ‘Tastemakers’ so you can find even more great recipes based off of their recommendations. You can follow the taste buds of such big names as former Good Morning America anchor Lisa McRee, New York Times Bestselling author Cristina Ferrare, and world-renowned Iron Chef and restaurateur Cat Cora. These and other foodies make up a diverse group of experts that aim to satisfy and inspire every taste out there no matter if you’re a meat-eater, all-out vegetarian or hardcore vegan.
“Whether you’re looking for the perfect pasta dish, need entertaining advice from celebrity caterer Lulu Powers, or are on a quest for simple, yet sensational meals from Cat Cora, Foodily connects you to the right Tastemakers to follow,” said Andrea Cutright, CEO of Foodily.

I love cooking my own meals. There are many benefits to cooking at home: it’s cheaper than eating out, you can alter ingredients to suit your tastes and dietary needs, and you can control your portion sizes more easily.
However, there is a downside: it can be difficult to know the nutrition information for the meals that you are cooking. You could spend hours searching for the nutrition information for every ingredient you use to cook with, combining the totals for each ingredient in each recipe, and then dividing the totals by portions. Honestly, that sounds like a lot of work to me. So, you can imagine how excited I was to discover Foodily.com.
Foodily.com is a cool new recipe search website that offers recipes from popular websites such as All Recipes, The Pioneer Woman, Martha Stewart, and many more. Users can search the entire database for recipes that they want to cook based on ingredients, keywords, and even ingredients that they do not want to cook with. You can also filter your results by recipes that originally appeared on a blog, ones that contain high levels of fiber, are low in fat, or are considered to be low carb. Now, you can search many Internet recipe website at one location to find one that meets your dietary needs or satisfy that late night craving. Think of it as the Google for recipes.
