Yahoo Tips Turkey Day With Shortcuts

Yahoo Search followed its release of NBA and NHL Shortcuts with ones oriented toward holiday recipes.

In 24 hours, thousands of households will pull their carefully defrosted turkeys out of the refrigerator, set their ovens to the proper temperature, season and possibly stuff the bird, and then overcook it to the point of sub-Saharan dryness.

Such a turkey tragedy, and other holiday dinner table disasters, can be avoided with a little help from a good recipe. Yahoo Search has a little something for the food-curious, a new round of Search Shortcuts.

Yahoo Search Recipes

“Here’s how Recipe Shortcuts work. Just add the word ‘recipes’ after what you’re looking to cook up and you’ll see a corresponding list of categories as well as top-rated recipes from 14 providers, including Epicurious, EatingWell, Food & Wine, Every Day with Rachael Ray, and Martha Stewart, via Yahoo! Food,” Yuko Kamae said at the Yahoo Search blog.

Logged-in Yahoo users can rate recipes on Yahoo Food. When it comes to turkey recipes, quite a few suggest ways to use the leftovers beyond the usual “top turkey with stuffing, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, and gravy; nuke for three minutes on High.”

As Kamae also noted, post-New Year’s searches for ideas for low-fat recipes and other diet suggestions will work the same way.
