In the last month I have been working on some major updates to Recipe Puppy.
The first upgrade is the ingredient database. The previous version of Recipe Puppy had just under 800 unique ingredients. That number is now over 1,500. In addition I am constantly adding generic categories, so that a search for cheese will find a recipe with any type of cheese.
The next upgrade is the number of different websites Recipe Puppy searches. We went from 8 to 28 websites and added a few hundred thousand recipes(now searching 650k recipes). Additions include nibbledish.com, simplyrecipes.com, myrecipes.com, bigoven.com, whfoods.com, food.sify.com, bestrecipe.com.au, campbellkitchen.com, deliciousdays.com, recipe4living.com, recipe.aol.com, eatingwell.com, jamieoliver.com, cookeatshare.com, bbc.co.uk/food, kraftfoods.com, vegweb.com, recipeland.com, and 101cookbooks.com. Let me know if you have any suggestions for sites to add. I have 30 more in the queue.
The last upgrade was a small ui change. It is now easier to alter your search on the fly. You can specify an ingredient you have, an ingredient you must use, or an ingredient you want to exclude(or don’t have):
In other news, Recipe Puppy is growing significantly. Recipe now sees 4k visitors daily. Let me know what you think of the changes and/or if you have any suggestions.
