Yummly Offers Tasty Inspiration for Holiday Gifts That Come Straight From the Hearth

Edible Gifts Are an Affordable and Delicious Way to Show You Care

PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwire - December 1, 2010) - Is the tough economy giving you a case of the holiday gift-giving blues? Why not give a gift from your kitchen this holiday season? Yummly, the company that is pioneering semantic recipe search and recommendations, is a one-stop shop for delicious and unique edibles that make thoughtful and affordable gifts for everyone on the list.

With its unique semantic recipe search platform, Yummly enables users to find unique gift-able recipe ideas based on their recipients' likes and dislikes that can be tailored to meet their individual tastes and dietary preferences. In just a few clicks of a mouse and whips of a whisk, Yummly has everything needed to stir up some holiday cheer and bake your way to tasty yet tasteful gifts that are sure to warm hearts and please palates -- without breaking the bank.

Treating people's sweet tooth with holiday cookies, sweet or savory breads and confections has long been a simple, clever and heartfelt way to show someone you care. Yummly offers hundreds of recipe ideas for holiday indulgences, but ups the ante over other cooking sites by empowering users to adjust recipes according to their dietary needs and preferences. The site also offers helpful ingredient substitution recommendations combined with automatically recalculating nutritional information and cost-per-serving features to help holiday cooks keep an eye on calorie counts while being mindful of their budget.

For faraway friends for whom perishable items aren't on the menu, cooks might consider making homemade mixes, jams or jellies wrapped in unique jars and decorative containers, or a gourmet gift basket trimmed in ribbons, decked in bows and packed with the recipe, ingredients and accessories they need to cook it themselves and savor later.
