Between 4pm and 6pm, I get into panic mode. I don’t know what to make for dinner. If I did better with grocery shopping over the weekend, I may not have food amnesia Monday through Friday.
Like me, you probably have heard of AllRecipes.com because it is a great online recipe resource. So I was intrigued when I heard about an updated app from AllRecipes.com that creates a “virtual pantry” to keep track of items at home.
Whether at home or at the grocery store, scan a grocery item’s barcode to search for recipes with related ingredients. Out of milk? Scan the carton’s barcode before it hits the recycle bin to add milk to the list. Scan groceries to keep track of what’s in the kitchen. Then you can check your scan history at the grocery store so they don’t buy something you already have — which is why I have 5 jars of ground cinnamon sitting in my cabinet.
If Greek Yogurt is on sale, but you wonder what you can make with it, a quick scan reveals nearly 100 matching recipes. Or use the slot-machine-style search feature to scan or manually add favorite ingredients to find recipes with ingredients that match. Undecided? Let the spinner choose!
Here is a video to learn more about it. Otherwise, check it out in the Android MarketPlace, Amazon App Store, and in the Apple App Store!
I received a complimentary paid app, but the thoughts and opinions are my own.
