What to Cook for Dinner – How to Find Thousands of Recipes To Make With the Food You Already Have

Most of us are cooking more at home and sometimes finding the right recipes is hard to do. I have struggled every day deciding what to cook for dinner. I am so happy I found this amazing website which will help us all cook great meals with the food we already have in our homes.


I think we are all cooking a lot more in our kitchens these days. But food is limited and it’s hard to cook creatively when your food options are limited. How many of you have thought you had no idea what to cook for dinner?  Well, good news. I just found an app where you can add your ingredients in your home and the app instantly finds matching recipes from the most popular cooking websites! In fact, you can find thousands of recipes to cook with the food you already own.

It’s true. I have only 82 different food items of food in our home (where I have been quarantined by myself for 6 days) and I just found 7,823 recipes to make with just what I have.
