Cooking By Numbers

Cooking by Numbers

Are you at a loss as to what to make for dinner tonight? Or do you have a limited amount of ingredients and need to make the most of them? Well, now you can! At Cooking by the Numbers, putting together meals has never been easier.

There is a list of ingredients on the site. Just check the boxes next to everything you have, for both the fridge and the cupboard. Once you’re done with that, click the Find Recipes button.

This will give you a listing of recipes that you can make with what you have. It also tells you the percentage of your ingredients that matched the recipe. To see more recipes, click the More link or the down arrow.

If you click the I Feel Lucky box on the list, you’ll get only one recipe and it tells you the percentage of ingredients that you have and what you are missing.

Say you want to make a chicken dish. You could just check chicken, as well as, a few other ingredients and get a listing for only chicken recipes. For example, if you want to make some sort of chicken pasta, check chicken, tomatoes, cooking oil, pasta and noodles. The results will be mostly different types of chicken pasta dishes, with some tomato dishes thrown in, like Tomato Salad.

Another great section here at this site is Skills by the Numbers. This is where you can learn all sorts of different cooking skills. For example, How to Joint a Chicken, How to Slice a Potato, How to Fold, How to Make Carmel and that’s just the tip of the culinary iceberg.

You can also check out the Tomato Attack section to play a game where you save good tomatoes while avoiding bad jumping tomatoes. My highest score was 100 and that was only my first try. I got worse at it the more I played.

This is quite an interesting cooking site. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did and I hope you find something tasty to try!
