Putting a Recipe in the YumYum Recipe Box

By Arlene Marshall (TwinLakesChef) on July 15, 2010

Have you been hesitant to try your hand at putting a recipe in the database? Yes, it can be a challenge to try something new . . . but think of the benefits.

It is easier than you might think.

Go to the home page for Yum and click on "Share a Recipe" in the right side panel.

You will see that there are four fields that are marked with a red star; that means you are required to put something in there in order to publish your recipe.

Recipe Title, Contributed By (that's You!),  Ingredents.

Of course we need to know how to Prepare the recipe.  Now scroll all the way to the bottom past all those check boxes.

Click on Add the entry and YOU have entered your recipe.

So what are all those other check boxes for?  It has to do with the strong search engine Dave has given us.  Let's use it!

How do you want your recipe searched?

I have a recipe that calls for chicken.  Is that all that's important about it?  If I put a check in the box by Chicken under the Cookbook Category, anyone who searches for chicken because that is what they have available to cook with ~ my recipe will come up with a search on chicken.

But maybe it is important that the Chicken is being grilled.  So if I put a check mark in the box labeled Grill under the category General Cooking/Prep Method . . anyone who is searching for all grilled recipes will see my recipe.

Now let's suppose someone is looking for Asian Cuisine using chicken.  Under Recipe Type-Categories I would want a check in the box in front of Asian Cuisine.

By the time you get to "Extra Features" you're really having fun.  Good for Season/Celebration/Holiday has some other fun Choices.  

There's a box below that for Nutritional Analysis if you think that is important.

And finally, there is a place for you to put your stamp of approval on your recipe.  You can choose that it's Tested & Approved!

The bonus is that 10 years from now when there have been thousands of posts in forums . . . YOU won't be digging to find a recipe someone posted in a forum.  That feature is what attracted me to joining cubits. . . Very powerful . . very valuable!
