Or you can just go to the recipe index page
and use the Google-powered LTH search engine there.
I am noticing, however, that since the upgrade, Google's searches aren't always as effective as they were, and for some searches the local search works better. For example, recently I searched for my original post on ANZAC biscuits. Google returned no results, but the local search found it. I just tried the Google search again, and it found my most recent post containing "ANZAC," but not the earlier one. So older material seems to have fallen out of Google's index somehow.
