What would an online recipe found via google be categorized in order to correctly cite it in APA format?
It depends on where you found the recipe.
1. If the recipe was published on a web site such as allrecepies.com, you can follow the rules of citing a webpage on the Cite Web tab of the Cite APA Style Libguide (link below).
2. If it's your own recipe, you have two options:
a. Upload it to a recipe website, and cite it as a web source.
b. You can also follow the rules of citing an "unpublished source" or manuscript.
3. If you got the recipe from a friend or family member, you can cite it as personal communication or interview.
