Save your favourite recipes

There’s nothing more irritating than finding a great recipe, cooking it, then forgetting which one it was the next time you need it – and this is highly likely, considering we have over 12,000 recipes on the site. Registering for a My Good Food account makes that a problem of the past, because you can save your favourite recipes in your own virtual recipe binder, safe for the next time you’re panicking about what to cook.

Sort your recipes


Not only does a My Good Food account allow you to save recipes, but you can organise them, too. Create your own collections and call them whatever you like. From ‘Dinner party favourites’ to ‘Best vegan desserts’, you can have fun labelling your collections as you wish.
