Tasty Tagging

For this post, we thought we’d continue to share some of the inventive and creative ways that people are using Delicious as a tool in their personal and professional lives. This week, food!

It’s safe to say that the web has revolutionized home cooking. Cooking blogs, recipe websites, and tablets have all but replaced cookbooks in the kitchen, which has advantages and disadvantages. A cook’s collection of recipes cannot just be contained and organized within a single cookbook or recipe box anymore; now it is likely spread across a wide array of blogs and websites.

Many Delicious users have found a creative way to organize their recipes by getting specific with tags. When saving a recipe, they tag all of the ingredients so that when they’re searching for inspiration, they can check their fridge or pantry, see what ingredients they have, and then search for them within their Delicious tags.

Say you’re making dinner and have chicken, spinach, and an onion in the fridge, but you don’t know what you can cook. Simply search Delicious for the tags chicken, spinach, and onion, choose a recipe that sounds yummy, and voila!

Even if you haven’t tagged and added your own favorite recipes, many other users have — making Delicious a fantastic resource for searching and discovering the best user-curated dishes! Have tomato, avocado, and a lime? Okblueberry has you covered! Looking for something savory? Runnergrl has not only tagged her links, but also bundled all of her meat & seafood tags into a single tag bundle, creating a whole other level of hierarchy for her recipes.

Hungry yet? Then get cooking!
