What’s in your fridge? Pocket Sandwich?

October 6, 2006

I remember listening to a radio show on NPR “Splended Table”. Hm you might wonder why I was listening to such a show, well I was fascinated with MFK Fisher’s writing only through other author’s mentionings such as Raymond Carver. Anyway that’s beside the point. The show has a segment where the caller calls in to challange the host with a problem. The caller looks into his/her fridge and reports what’s in there…usually not much…mustard, old left over hot dogs for example. Well then the host would have to suggest a recipes for the ingredients. RecipeMatcher is a similar idea. You tell it what you have to cook with and it comes up with a wonderful and tasty recipes. Hm…I wonder if the creator of RecipeMatcher was inspired by the “Splended table”

RecipeMatcher.com allows its members to find recipes based on what they have at home. Searches return with recipes ranked by the percentage of ingredients you already have.

So you don’t have to go to the grocery stores which is one of the lesser joys of cooking. The other cool thing about the site is that it’s a Web 2.0 application.
