You can even type a main ingredient into the search bar, then select the check boxes below for a more powerful and specific search.

Most recipes have nutrient information available and some recipes have tips on ingredient substitutions, special preparations to adjust nutrition content, how make a recipe ahead of time or even how to involve your child in preparing the recipe.
