KitchenPC: Free Help When The Cupboard is [Almost] Bare!
Stretch your grocery budget with help from KitchenPC.com. This free website - still in beta mode - helps you find recipes based on the ingredients you have in your kitchen at any given time.
Click on the 'Meal Planner' tab, and enter each food item you have on hand, one at a time. After you have entered all the ingredients, recipe suggestions are instantly displayed. So you just might discover a fabulously delicious dinner idea for your family tonight without having to spend another dollar at the grocery store.
But I have to admit that even though it is so helpful to get a recipe instantly using the remnants of my kitchen cupboards, what is really fun about this website is the option to have recipes read out loud to you! Yep, step by step instructions are read aloud as you cook! You will need to download the free browser extension, Firesay, to enable this option. But once you get it set up, it is so much fun to use! (You can read more about Firesay Here.)
Want more free features you say?? Here are a couple more: you can also add your own favorite recipes to the site, create recipe-generated printable shopping lists, and create your own monthly meal planning and shopping calendars.
Definitely worth a look-see! Check it out at www.KitchenPC.com.
