Welcome to RecipeSavants!

Welcome fellow cooking enthusiasts! My name is Robert and I’m thrilled that you’ve visited here at RecipeSavants. While for the past 25 years, I have been a software developer, in 2016, I developed RecipeSavants as a technical and food-based exploration of my creative side. It is an ideal outlet for me to share delicious recipes and cooking techniques with you other food enthusiasts around the world. For me, the kitchen is an extension of my inner-most being. I have been cooking and serving meals to family and friends since age 13. Many have said that they feel the love flowing from my kitchen. The people sitting around your table likely say the same about you and your cooking.

RecipeSavants strives to provide recipes that are easy to access, follow, and understand—regardless of skill level. All our recipes have been reviewed, tested, and validated for the convenience of our members. Our website offers multiple ways for you to search for recipes, including by ingredient, name, or flavor profile. The site has a modern design that is user-friendly so you can focus on your mission to feed your family within a budget. We are so much more than just another collection of recipes. We offer technical solutions, menu planning, and shopping list management. Besides shopping lists and menu management features, RecipeSavants also provides weekly tips, tricks, menus, and blogs. Our goal is to help make you successful in the kitchen.

My Personal Food Perspective

My food philosophy is elementary: food should be a feast of all five senses. Preparing meals should be based on simple, tasty, and real recipes that are easy to follow—not intimidating. Instead of serving overly-processed products from the grocery shelves, I prefer to cook meals at home that are delicious and nutritious. I have no tolerance for bland food. My penchant is budget-friendly, flavor-packed menus that are focused on taste and international flare. Since I believe that flavor is the soul of food, I gravitate toward all cuisines that are BIG on flavors. We can all eat healthier and save money by skipping processed ingredients. For me, homemade is always the best!

It's very personal

I take responsibility for all recipe development, testing, website development, and technical support. When I experiment with traditional fare as well as festival dishes, I create a delicious way to learn about new cultures and traditions. I am on a journey to discover more about global cuisines and customs. When you email or contact RecipeSavants, you will be communicating with me personally. Let’s travel this journey of food and culture together—from my kitchen to yours.

Order your recipe ingredients directly from a recipe?

How great would it be to order the ingredients directly from a recipe, and completely skip the need to go the grocery store? All of our recipes have been powered with the Chicory.co plug in, that enables you to place online orders with: PeaPod.com, Amazon, Amazon Fresh and Instacart directly from the recipe. If you do not have an account, with either AmazonFresh or Peapod please click HERE, you can easily sign up with either service and continue to support RecipeSavants.

Ordering your groceries online is a very simple process. All you need to do is visit any of our delicious recipes, click the "Get Ingredients" button, enter your zip code and choose from the set of online grocers supported in your area. Note, not all groceries support all zip codes, but all the online grocers are constantly expanding their coverage areas.

Here are a few tips we discovered while testing and developing the integration with Chicory

  • Make sure you logged into your online grocer before you try to send an order over. It isn’t strictly required, but I have found it makes the process a bit smoother, especially with PeaPod.com
  • Make sure to skim the ingredient list, and make sure the matches that the grocer selected are actually appropriate for the recipe. I have done my best to ensure that each recipe is the best it can be, but I cannot control the matching of ingredients in the grocers’ system.
  • I recommend, that you have two windows open, one with the recipe, and another with the online grocer to easily review the matched ingredients, and quickly make any modifications necessary. All the online grocers provide a simple process to add new items to your cart.

I use Amazon Fresh and Peapod for ordering ingredients when building and testing recipes, so I feel very confident in recommending these online grocers to you. When you use these services to order groceries through RecipeSavants, I receive a small advertising fee. It helps to cover expenses, so I can continue to offer valuable content, recipes, and menus to my readers.
