Twitter and Google Search Surprise Recipes by category

Have you heard of Twitter? Twitter is the smallest imaginable way to micro-blog or "life" blog ....from the Twitter website...
"Twitter is a community of friends and strangers from around the world sending updates about moments in their lives. Friends near or far can use Twitter to remain somewhat close while far away. Curious people can make friends. Bloggers can use it as a mini-blogging tool. Developers can use the API to make Twitter tools of their own. Possibilities are endless!
You can send updates in three ways: send a text message from your mobile phone, type a message from the Twitter site, or instant message from AIM, Jabber or Gtalk. Start by texting the word help to 40404 if you're in the United States."
But this post isn't really about Twitter.

You see I use Twitter sort of as an experiment to see if people respond to these new social networking apps by clicking on links. So far so good, and it is pretty interesting to read what some of the people are up to that they feel they want to share. This leads me to a Tweet (thats what a message in Twitter is called) from my Twitter friend MacFixer. He pointed out that if you search for an ingredient and the word "recipe" in Google you get this cool little feature I hadn't seen before(see pic on right) Now I LOVE to barbecue and spent the last hour or so browsing barbecue recipes and downloading the best to try. Google may indeed take over the world, but I may not be among those who would think that was a bad thing. If they keep dropping cool shit like this, GReader, Gcal, Gmail, and all the other GLove they've given us FREE...imagine what we may yet have in store.
