As Holger suggested, you can use more search terms for better results, like :

  mini image thumb gallery

Or, you can search for the term " mini " with the quotes and the spaces.

Or, you can search for the page name with :

or even 

Or, you can restrict the search to the Cookbook/ group via one of those :

  Cookbook/ image mini gallery

Correct, our search returns pages that contain the searched tearms as 
substrings, unlike google which returns results for whole words and other 
related forms of the words. Not a bug, just different designs.
