Recipes really lend themselves to a fielded search and a faceted presentation, but most sites don't do it too well. I love Cooks Illustrated, but their search has been quite awful. Epicurious is much better, but with all that great structured data, you would think they could rock it.
I'll have to try it some more with some real searches. Seems pretty cool so far. No need to memorize any pages, you can just do a normal google search and then limit to recipes afterward.
