When I started writing my recipes for this blog I did not think about the next step. I had recipes and I wanted to share them with everybody but the question became, How I can share my recipes with other people?

I learned a lot about that by trial and error. One of the coolest ways I found was Yummly. A very cool app that is great for foodies like you and me. It makes searching and finding recipes very easy and convenient. I got it and got hooked immediately. And right after searching for a while I said I want my recipes here. You can search recipes according to your diet, or the type of cuisine you want. And that is just the tip of the iceberg. 

What is Yummly?

Yummly is a very easy to use recipe app that learns what you like. As you browse the internet for recipes you can mark the most delicious ones to save on your Yummly profile page. Using your favorite types of food, cooking skills level and diet restrictions the app gives you personalized suggestions to grow your collection. It is fun and easy, all in one place.

The app use your Yums and taste preferences to recommend recipes you’ll love. These recommendations appear in your “Just for You” recipe feed and come to you via email weekly. As you review your recommendations, the more you Yum, the better they get!

What is a Yum?

It is a button that allows you to mark a recipe or article that you like and save it in your Yummly page. It is a hassle free way to copy save and keep your favorite recipes while you discover more. Look for the button in your favorite recipe blog and start Yumming away.

I use it on my recipes here at a vegan cook and so far I love it. Check out this sweet and delicious recipe of apple currant pie and hit the Yum button to save it to your recipe box. You will not be dissapointed.
