In Google We Trust

It was bound to happen eventually, seeing as how recipes are a popular search on Google. Now, the search engine giant is attempting to make it easier to find recipes via the 'net while racking up the ad dollars. Say hello to a new Google Recipe Search. Looking for specific recipes or a great app to provide at your next party? Go to the section, type in your search term and Google will list recipes for you to peruse. A menu on the left side of the screen lets users filter recipes by ingredient, cooking time and calories.

On the downside, recipes are sorted by popularity, not quality - which means you might have to dig around for awhile to find a really good one. But I like what I'm seeing so far. For example, put "sucralose" into the search bar and you'll find results ranging from a sweet pickle relish and custard to raspberry parfait, chocolate chip cookies and a low-carb banana loaf. So if you're a frequent visitor to this blog and the Splenda.com recipe section, consider checking out Google Recipe Search for some additional sugar-free recipe options. Hooray!

P.S. This is National Chocolate Chip Cookie Week, so here are some delicious, sucralose-sweetened recipes to appease your sweet tooth without the guilt.
