Happy Friday Y’all!!!
Before we get too far into the month of November I have to do my quick review of October’s website of the month. If you are fairly new to Kitchen Concoctions, check out these two blog posts to find out all about the “Website of the Month” feature.
So here is all about Epicurious:
There are a lot of good quality photos of most of the recipes on Epicurious.
Prep Time, Cooking Time, and Number of Servings listed: Some
Total time, prep time and number of servings are listed on some recipes. However, this information varies from recipe to recipe and is not consistent. Some include prep time while others just state total time or number of servings.
Nutritional Information provided: No
This information is not provided.
Clear, easy to follow directions and ease of preparation: Yes
The recipes on Epicurious are comprised of both user recipes and recipes from popular sources such as Bon Appétit, Gourmet, and Food and Wine. Because most recipes come from other reputable sources they are easy to make with clear directions.
Easily available ingredients and budget friendly: Yes and No
The recipes on Epicurious range from all abilities and capabilities, so do the ingredients.
Variety of recipes: All types of recipes!
This site is huge and has tons of recipes. Like tons! Great resource if you are looking for any type of recipe, especially one with a good reputation.
Meal Planning Feature: No
There is not a meal planning feature per say, but they do have suggested menus.
Source of recipes: The recipes on Epicurious are comprised of both user recipes and recipes from popular sources such as Bon Appétit, Gourmet, and Food and Wine.
Special feature: Epicurious really is an ‘epic’ recipe site and food resource. It is extremely popular with a large selection of recipes. It also has cooking video, articles about food and cooking, as well as highlights different chefs, farms, restaurants, etc. Seriously a major food resource.
In case you missed is, this is what I made:
Disclosure: Again I am not being paid to do these reviews, I just frequent these sites a lot and wanted to feature some recipes I get from these sites and sort of compare the different features these websites have to offer.
