Helpful Tips

Better Recipes is an ever-growing online cookbook full of recipes from our registered members and from the editors of Better Homes and Gardens®.

If you are brand new to Better Recipes, start at the Main Page. From this "home base" you can click to browse through categories, search for recipes, or upload your own recipes.

Find Recipes


On every page throughout Better Recipes, you'll find a blank Recipe Search text box. Type an ingredient or recipe name into this box, then click Go. To limit your search results to recipes you can make in 30 minutes or less, click the "30-minutes or less" box before clicking the Go button. The Search Results page shows recipes that match your search terms. Click any recipe title to view the recipe, or use the links at the bottom of each section to view more matching recipes of that type.


If you are just looking for great ideas for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, you can browse through our categories just as you would browse a cookbook.
