An afterthought on the Google Custom Search post of a few days ago. If you would like to add a Food Blog Search bar to your site, and don't want to spend the time (in my case several hours) inputing hundreds of blogs in to a new search engine, you are very welcome to use mine on your site. The code is:
<!-- Google CSE Search Box Begins -->
<form id="searchbox_003084314295129404805:72ozi9a0fjk" action="http://www.google.com/cse">
<input type="hidden" name="cx" value="003084314295129404805:72ozi9a0fjk" />
<input name="q" type="text" size="20" />
<input type="submit" name="sa" value="Search" />
<input type="hidden" name="cof" value="FORID:1" />
<!-- Google CSE Search Box Ends -->
Note that Google will run ads on most search results. At the moment the ads for this particular Food Blog Search engine are tied to my Google Adsense account. If there was a way to set it up so that the adsense could be tied to other accounts as well, I would do that. But that's not possible at the moment. The Custom Search function is in beta, so maybe this will be something that they will change in time.
Enjoy. Please email any questions regarding this to recipes AT elise [dot} com.
