Ever look in your kitchen at the random food items & not know what to cook? You probably hate to go back to the grocery store knowing you have food at home. There's a website called supercook.com, which allows you to plug in all of those foods you may have around the kitchen, then brings up recipes that use those ingredients along w/any others you may need. They aren't always healthy, but that's where your expertise (or maybe a challenge) can come in! I believe it's a great way to save food & $$
