Generally, searching for recipes is a pain in the ass with Google. Mostly because of all the content spam that floats to the SEO top. If they could just skim off any entries from about.com, ehow.com, allrecipes.com, etc. it might not be so bad.
And yes, I recognize that I should just use epicurious, food network, etc. However, using those services limits the ability to discover places like Smitten Kitchen or other really great food blogs.
Will Google Recipe View change this annoyance? I don’t know, but it’s a fairly cool thing for Google to rollout and one that they certainly didn’t have to.
