Secrets of Success

Using Up Ingredients You Have




I go to Google and do a recipe search for what I want to use up and get many recipes that fit. For example, in the search box:

Recipe: feta spinach eggs low calorie (or low fat or carbs if you wish)

This is a great way to find new recipes and use up what you already have.
