4 Tricks to Find Popular Recipes Online

4 Tricks to Find Popular Recipes Online

It’s amazing how information is much easier to find online. Search engines like Google have changed the way information is organized, allowing us to effectively find what we are looking for quickly. I remember before how recipe ideas used to be passed down on cards from generation to generation, but this is also changing. Recipe guides can now be downloaded digitally and viewed on our smartphones.

It’s amazing how things are simpler, but provide so much value at the same time. I’ve always been intrigued with different kinds of recipes because cooking is a true art form. We take time in the way we prepare food, and love to share the eating experience with the ones we love. For this reason, I’ve always been looking for creative ways to find the best, most popular recipes online.

Today, I’ll be going over 4 tricks I’ve been using to find popular recipes online, so you can apply them the next time you enter your kitchen to prepare your meal.

Google Trends

If you have somewhat of an idea about the type of meal you’ll like to prepare, then head over to Google Trends. This tool will give you a breakdown into popular searches people are doing online. All you need to do is enter your target keyword and Google will bring up the top 10 search results. You can skim through each one, getting a glimpse into awesome recipes; you can write them down or print them. As mentioned, you need to have a starting “target” keyword to paste into Google Trends. I’ve been using this tool to do research online, and it’s helped me come up with creative recipes for myself and to pass on to family members.

Follow this simple process:

  • Have a target keyword ready;
  • head over to Google Trends;
  • skim through the top 10 results;
  • visit each website and print the recipe;
  • for additional support, you can bookmark the page too.

Pinterest

This social media platform doesn’t get enough credit for providing lots of valuable information. It’s a great social networking site because it’s a compilation of images created on a complete portfolio. By visiting one portfolio, you’ll be able to get a complete recipe guide downloaded in seconds. You can even download the Pinterest application to your phone so you have the guides quickly available. Head over to Pinterest and do a search using your target keyword; it’ll generate other popular searches at the same time. You’ll not only find searches related to your target keyword, but other awesome, popular related search queries too. It’s a solid way to find thousands of popular recipes within minutes.

Smart Phone Applications

The smartphone industry has grown 68% in the last 5 years mostly because of how simplistic they have made our lives. Through your phone, you can browse the internet, do your banking, and even use the online GPS. What transforms the industry, even more, is the ability to download custom applications that fit your needs.

For example, you can download applications for GPS, gaming, texting, video calls, and weight loss. There’s tons of applications for cooking too, so you can explore popular ideas at work, on the road, and while in the kitchen. You don’t need to be in front of your computer anymore because the application is free to download and a must-have if you’re looking for popular recipe ideas.

Amazon

I’m suggesting this online website NOT for you to purchase books, but for the digital library they have. Almost all cooking books are now in digital format making it easier for you to retrieve popular recipes instantaneously. Amazon even has their own application, known as the Kindle, where you can skim through books, highlight, and bookmark popular recipes. I use Kindle for researching content marketing, recipes, general reading, and exploring trending news.

I especially like to use Amazon because they have a huge selection of recipe guides which you can preview for free. Skim through and preview the guides before buying them in digital format. They also have a great return policy just in case you are not happy with the purchase. Finally, digital books are much cheaper than buying actual books so you’ll save a lot of money and find popular recipes at the same time.

Final Thoughts

Cooking great tasting food is a way to connect and engage with people. During dinners, people have intimate conversations and connect in a very deep way. This connection is stronger when you’ve prepared the great food that’s on the table. If you love to cook, then use the strategies above to search for popular recipe ideas online. Get started now by going online visiting Google Trends,…and download cooking applications for your smartphone.

35 Anniversary Ideas to Bring You Closer Together

35 Anniversary Ideas to Bring You Closer Together

Every mature relationship has had a less-than-memorable anniversary. Maybe one of you forgot, or both of you got busy with work, kids, family issues, or something else. Whatever happened, the day came and went without fanfare. And neither of you seemed to notice or much care.

But for the health of any relationship, it’s important to make important days feel special. Anniversaries offer the wonderful opportunity to relive beautiful memories, practice gratefulness for your partner, and to show your love and strengthen your bond. Make this year’s anniversary with your significant other something special  — one that will bring you closer together.

The best way to create a memorable anniversary is to do something new and different together as a couple. Stretch yourselves a bit.

While boredom can silently kill a relationship, new experiences reinforce the shared bond you already have and create strong new memories. Just think back to the most significant memories you have right now with your spouse and imagine what new ones you can create!

While you enjoy your chosen anniversary activity, be sure to keep a positive attitude and make your partner happy too on that day. Leave all arguments and day to day detail behind. Just celebrate your relationship. Whether you’re going to spend the day together at home, getting away, or having a wild and crazy new experience together, you can have your best anniversary yet!

If You’re Staying In

  1. Spend an evening with no technology, just the two of you and maybe a board game. It’s hard to keep ourselves away from our computers and smartphones long enough to have a meaningful conversation. Make a rule not to use your tech and you’ll rekindle your relationship!
  2. Make wine or beer together. If you enjoy drinking together, this is a fun activity to try together. Just remember to buy the necessary equipment ahead of time.
  3. Learn something new about each other. With an open mind, try asking some of the New York Times’ 36 questions that lead to love. They’ll help spark intimacy and will lead to some really honest moments.
  4. Have a lazy day. Breakfasts in bed, spend all day in bed talking and napping. Follow breakfast with champagne and dessert! If you feel like getting more active, cook together or play some games. Here’re some simple breakfast ideas for you.
    • Learn to dance at home. This is best for those active couples who work out together and also enjoy learning something new together. Just go on Youtube to find any music with dance tutorials and learn together.
    • Visit model homes or open houses and plan your dream home.
    • Have a special dessert – champagne and chocolate covered strawberries. Having an unusual treat makes a day feel extra special. If you want to make the dessert really special, try these tasty dessert recipes.
    • Create a playlist of your favorite songs as a couple. Choose songs that tell your story, and songs that you bonded over throughout your relationships. Here’re some love songs ideas for your inspirations.
      • Write your love story. Write it together or ave each of you write your own and then bring them together in an interesting, both sides of the story format.
      • Get a fondue pot. Fondue is a fun way to enjoy melted cheeses (for savory items) and melted chocolate (for sweeter treats).
      • Decorate! Turn your home into a dressed-up french cottage, a sophisticated restaurant, or simply with flowers. The different ambience will immediately change the feel of your home and make it feel like a staycation.
        • Talk about the future together. It might sound simple and everyday, but imagining how you want to spend your retirement together, or planning future trips can be exciting and romantic.

        If You Want to Get Away

        1. Take a day trip together to your favorite spot. If you live in a city, it can be incredibly refreshing to get away for an afternoon and drink in the outdoors.
        2. Go on a scenic drive and stop at a wine and cheese bar. Or, if you’re lucky enough to have lots of options where you live, try a brewpub. There are tons of small craft breweries with fantastic food options too.
        3. Go camping. Relatively affordable and, if the weather’s right, beautiful and romantic.
          • Take an overnight backpacking trip. For the more adventurous couples, backpacking is an even more intense way to challenge yourself physically while becoming one with nature.
          • Take a wine tasting tour. If you live on the West Coast or in the Northeast, take a drive to the nearest winery. Many offer relatively inexpensive tastings and deals if you purchase a certain amount.
          • Take a scenic train trip. Taking the train means less stress traveling: nobody has to drive, you don’t have to stop for breaks every few hours, and you can sleep if you need to!
          • Save up for a destination vacation. What better time than your anniversary to enjoy the beach at a beautiful resort?
          • Explore a new city. Whether you’re on a budget or have a lot saved up, you can have a great time just exploring an unfamiliar town.
          • Rent a cabin for a weekend away, in the woods or next to a lake or ocean. If you like the outdoors but can only take so much nature, try glamping.
            • Go on a retreat. Yoga retreats, meditation retreats, beautiful natural surroundings … they’re all the rage. Search for centeredness and calm with your partner.
            • Spend a day at a food festival. Many cities have fun and affordable food festivals, occasionally based on a theme. Check out your town’s (or a nearby city) calendar for inspiration!

            New & Exciting Experiences

            1. Go spelunking. Dark, damp, and utterly exciting!
            2. Go on a hot air balloon ride. Because the basket is relatively small, this can be a romantic and deeply personal – and yet thrilling –
              experience.
              • Try sky diving. If you and you S.O. are real thrill-seekers, sky diving can really push you to the edge!
              • Explore the underwater world by snorkeling or scuba diving. This may take you far away from where you normally live and work, which is an added bonus.
              • Experience white water rafting.
              • Drive or hike to the highest spot nearby for a new view of the world. America has tons of beautiful mountains where challenging hikes (or drives) can deliver breathtaking views.
              • Take a craft or cooking class. Up your craft skills or food  making skills, and enjoy something new!
                • Take a wine and painting class today. These classes are easily found these days and even a beginning painter can create a nice painting. Challenging but relaxing, fun, and you get to go home with some artwork!
                • Learn to salsa dance. Dancing is a fantastic way to actively get closer and coordinate physically with one another.
                  • Visit a nearby festival you’ve always wanted to go to. Have fun and let go with fellow audience-members!
                  • Spend the day at an amusement park together. Laugh and carry on like teenagers.
                  • Meet new people! At a restaurant, concert, or class, make it a point to meet new friends. Striking up conversation with someone you don’t know – but with whom you have shared interests – can be an adventurous and rewarding experience.

                  Whether your budget is big or small, and whether you have a little or a ton of time together, focus on each other. There are tons of options, in terms of location, level of physical activity, and cost. You can make the day special in a way that’s right for you!
