Cooking with what you have...

I watched BBC's Click this afternoon and as usual, they will introduce a few awesome sites available and one site that caught my eye was

Three year old, dusty book

This site is what I've been looking for. Three years ago, my mom bought me a recipe book since that's the first time I moved in to my apartment. Hehe, a bachelorette guide to cooking. It has quite a few interesting recipes, but here's the problem - the ingredients!

I have...
Ginger + Chicken + Milk + Onion + Apple = ???

Let's say you bought a whole ingredients for one meal. And then, having to cook only for 1 or 2 person, you tend to get leftovers and you pretty much have two choices;
  1. Use it for the same meal. Get the remaining ingredients and cook it. If you're a busy person, the food might go bad and bye-bye food.
  2. Re-invent new recipe on your own. The downside for that, it might taste 'wrong' since you're at a experimental mode. Oooh, pasta + apple...I wonder how it will taste like :P

Once you get to the site, just type in all the ingredients you have. I pretty much have most of the ingredients I need for spaghetti bolognese, but it's interesting to see other choices you can cook with it.

Great site for those who wants to save and cook at home. My resolution for the Earth Day this year is to cook at home at least 3 days a week. Let's cut costs on takeouts, carbon emission from fuel, eat healthy and challenge yourself into making simple to scrumptious meals.

Let's cook! For my next post (coming soon), I will share you my dad's spaghetti recipe, inspired during his years in Italy.
