    In the firefox browser, there is a search field. It defaults to Google, but if right click the icon in that field, a drop down list appears. This list includes other handy search destinations. At the bottom of that list is an "Add Engines..." function. Click that.

    Your current browser tab redirects to a page where you can add search engines to your list. Among the options is "Food Network Recipes". Click that engine title. A popup appears for you to confirm your selection.

    Now you can search the Food Network straight from Firefox. Merely select the Food Network search icon from the icon list and your searches for recipes is easy.

    I'm no programmer, but I'm sure it could be done.

    Great tip. I love it. Creating a search engine might not be that bad, but getting it added to the Google list would be I bet.
