WASHINGTON, June 20, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Feastie, Inc., a visual and dynamic recipe search engine with grocery list tools, today announced that its database now contains over 1,000 food blogs with a total of over 185,000 recipes, making it the world's largest food blogger recipe database. Feastie has also launched a free toolbar for food bloggers called the FeastieBar that allows their readers to bookmark their recipes, save their cooking history, and create a shopping list from recipes with one click.

The image-driven Feastie search engine allows users to explore and discover thousands of recipes from the original food blog photography. The search makes it easy to find recipes from a wide variety of cuisines and diets such as gluten-free, vegan, and paleo. Unlike other search engines, the database at Feastie is updated constantly, adding hundreds of new recipes to the index daily, ensuring that users will find something new every time they search. The blogs range from gourmet cuisine and pastry to family-friendly meal planning or shoestring budget cooking. Users can follow their favorite blogs in their profile to be sure they never miss a recipe from their favorite blogger.

"Hitting this milestone of 1,000 blogs in our database is a big win for Feastie, people who love to cook from online recipes, and recipe bloggers alike. Feastie makes it easier and more fun for home cooks to find healthy, delicious recipes that fit their dietary needs and budgets," said Valerie Coffman, CEO and founder of Feastie. "Most food blog recipes are omitted from or buried in Google recipe search results, which excludes high quality and unique recipes from food bloggers. We solved this problem with our FeastieBot. Now searching for recipes, ingredients, and other recipe-specific keywords is simple and bloggers don't need to hassle with special formats or codes."

Unlike competing recipe search engines, Feastie indexes recipes exclusively from food blogs. While large conglomerate recipe search engines or aggregates have thousands of recipes from anonymous sources, the recipes indexed in Feastie are written and tested by home cooks and food enthusiasts, and make the cooking experience more personal and approachable for home cooks. Feastie is completely free to use and can be accessed via mobile phone, making planning, shopping for, and cooking meals a fun activity instead of a weekly chore.
