The Best website Find EVER!

I'm not sure how I found it but I think it was a link from a new blog I discovered this weekend....
I currently have about 20-25 blogs which I have subscribed to their feeds, and just check my feedburner to see who has new posts each day. Some how I clicked onto a new blog and then found my way to (queue music please)....

For any mom, dad, gourmet cook, top-ramen eating college student, etc etc, this site is a must!

Basically, you set up an account and then type in the various items that you have in your pantry or frig. Each time you put in an ingredient, it will match up recipes based on what you have in your account!

For instance, I plugged in pasta sauce, pasta, ground beef and parmesean cheese. It came up with several recipes that I could make from just those ingredients. When I added eggs and Italian Seasoning, it increased the recipes that I could make right then and there.

What's even better, it will give you suggestions for other ingredients that would be helpful to have, based on what is already in your pantry.
And the bestest of best parts, the recipes that are in the supercook database are from internet sources, like recipezaar,, allrecipes, etc. So if I was totally motivated, I could plug in all of MY recipes into one of those sites, and then my recipes would be searchable based on the ingredients.

This site is a must for anyone that is trying to cut down their grocery bill. It will give you recipes based on what is already in your pantry.
It's also a must for any moms that need more time in their day, are trying to cut down on food waste.

I know for a fact that I didn't input everything that I have on hand, and yet it told me that I could make 2,000 different recipes from what I have. Granted there's probably 20 different versions of peanut butter cookies, but still. If you ever are stuck with what to make for dinner at the last minute, this is fabulous. And if you stay on top of maintaining what is in your pantry on this site, just think of how easy menu planning would be.

  1. I discovered the site yesterday and I am so excited about it. I've called everyone I know to tell them all about it.
