This week: Understanding EYB Library filters; Jenny’s best cookbooks of 2021 and more

Members often inquire about limiting the results of a recipe search. For example, if a member wanted to find recipes utilizing “pineapple” but was only looking for cocktail recipes, the member would use our Filters.

  1. In the Recipe Library type in your ingredient/ingredients. You will note that there are over 24,000 recipes with pineapple in the photo below.

2. To the right you will see the Filter By drop down menu. To limit your search to “pineapple” and “cocktails”. Choose Recipe Types. Scroll down to Drinks. Note the number of drink recipes with pineapple is a little over 4,400. Toggle the Drinks Filter to choose either “Beverages/Drinks – no alcohol” or “Cocktails/Drinks – alcohol”. The result is 2,491 cocktail recipes with pineapple. I have sorted the recipe results by “Buzz”. Other options include: A-Z, Author, Rating, Date Published, or Recently Added.

Below is a series of photos that shows the same search and filter while using your phone.
