Recipe Search

Allrecipes wants to make it as easy as possible for you to find what you are looking for, so we have created several ways to search for recipes to ensure that you do! You can use the search field at the top of any page to perform any of the searches listed below:

Search:On any page, enter your search term into the quick search bar at the top of the page. You will be taken to results for that search term, which will include many delicious recipes!


Ingredient Search:Search for recipes that contain the ingredients you want! Click on the words Ingredient Search at the top of any page. After clicking Ingredient Search you will be taken to a form where you can enter up to four ingredients that you would like to include and also up to four ingredients you would like to exclude. Be sure to click the plus or minus after each ingredient.  Click on the spy glass icon after entering all the ingredients you are looking to include and exclude to see your results.

Each section of—including the homepage, has a daily recipe. To see these, navigate to the recipe collections by choosing the collection in the Browse menu drop-down options. You can view the Recipe of the Day for sub-collections as well.

Recipes no longer on the site

While we always have member recipes on the site, we also partner with trusted brands to offer their recipes on the site for certain periods of time. If you see a recipe that has been submitted by a food company that you may want to use again, save that recipe to your Favorites, or print it for future use.
