A Tip for Finding and Reading Thanksgiving Leftovers Recipes

One of my favorite things about Thanksgiving is eating leftovers the next day. I enjoy a good turkey sandwich almost as much as Ross, but I like to mix it up a bit and try other ways to use leftovers. In fact, I did it earlier in the week (yes, I was planning Thanksgiving leftovers) when I got super annoyed with all the pop-up and roll ads on various recipe sites. That was when I implemented one of my favorite search tips, file type search.

To the end of my keyword “turkey shepherd pie” I added file type: pdf. I did this only to find links to PDFs that contain recipes for turkey-shepherd-pie. There are no annoying pop-ups and scrolling ads on PDF files to get in the way of reading a recipe.

The second trick I often use when searching for recipes online is to use the OneNote web editor to save articles instead of just bookmarking the links. The web editor allows you to view the article without having to go back to the original web page.

Both of these tips for finding and reading recipes for Thanksgiving leftovers can be used when searching online. I used the file type search method earlier this fall to help someone identify a piece of old archery equipment, and I used it just a week ago to find a copy of the portable generator user manual in my garage.

Watch this short video for a demonstration of file type search and a demonstration of the OneNote Web Mower.

Searching by file type is just one of the many search strategies that students need to know. That strategy and many more are taught in my online course, Search Strategies Students Need to Know.
