I found this recipe search site, FoodieView, because I noticed quite a few hits to my site from it. It's pretty useful, it searches all the recipe sites at once and it's a clean no-frills design with the added benefit of no popups or annoying flash things. It also has a blog but who cares? I'm surprised that google isn't all over something like that, but they probably own that site for all I know. I found this google recipe search by some guys from Stanford but it's basically the equivalent of searching for “crumbcake” and the word “recipe”. You don't need a Stanford education to figure that out.
