When I shared my disappointment with Christina, she asked me the big question “Are you on Yummly?” When I said “no” she strongly encouraged me to give it a try.
Yummly isn’t social media in the sense of what we commonly think. Yummly is a recipe sharing platform. We save the recipes we love. How do we do that? We “Yum” them (i.e. click the Yum button.) The recipes we Yum go right into our own database where we can access them by categories anytime we want them. Here is my Yummly Page: Ducks ‘n a Row on Yummly
