Hi Merlene,

There are probably several ways you could go with this, and I'd probably
go with a database solution because I'm not that familiar with site
index servers or site search engine contruction.

Are you starting from scratch or is this an enhancement to an existing
recipe site?

What platform and tools will be available to you in terms of databases or
back-end scripting languages?

How many recipes are they planning to put on the site?  Do those recipes
exist today in some electronic format (word? pdf? other?) or are they
all going to have to be typed in by hand anyway?
