Best of the Food Web: Foodily

By Elizabeth Jarrard, Dietetics Student, Sargent College

Every Wednesday we will be posting about a new blog or cooking website that we love! The internet is filled with food websites, and our goal is to arm you with the “Best of the Food Web”!

While there is something wonderful and traditional about flipping through the pages of a worn cookbooks-dogeared and soup splatter on every other page, more often than not I turn to the internet for my recipes. As a college student moving from dorm to dorm, apt to apt, it’s just not feasibly to lug around a library of cookbooks every September 1st. And the internet is full of tempting recipes, to fit every delight, whim and craving. It’s made it infinitely easier to be a beginning, aspiring chef, and a godsend when jonesing for a gluten free, dairy free, egg free, sugar free pastry. But it’s also easy to get lost in the foodporn of Tastespotting, infinite resources of AllRecipes, and never ending lists from CookingLight, Vegetarian Times, Epicurious, Foodnetwork, and many more. And don’t even get me started on blogs!

This is why my life became much more simplified when I discovered the utter genius of Foodily. Type in what your looking for. Type in what you’re not looking for, and VOILA! you have your recipes, with gorgeous photos to boot. Donuts, without dairy? got it.  Chili no meat? done. Challah, no eggs? sorta….. Still not sure what you want to  make for dinner? browse away! (oh and did I say they are all-gasp-healthy? with markers for low fat, high fiber, etc etc??) Created by BU Alums, I mean it when I say this site will change your entire culinary experience.


So what are you waiting for! Ladies and Gentleman, start your search engine!

What makes Foodily even tastier is that one of the Founders, Hillary Mickell, is a BU alum.
