My cooking habits

So, something I love is with the Ingredient search function. I can type in whatever I have in my fridge that is about to go bad, and they will give me a list of recipes. (Just for reference, don't type in zucchini, potatoes, tomatoes because nothing really has all three that still sounds tasty). So instead, I'm cooking up some chocolate zucchini bread to bring to work and give to friends (I have one big zucchini in my fridge), roasted garlic potato wedges, and salsa. I try to use Thursday nights for my cooking for the next week, and since it's just me, I usually make one dessert and one sizeable entree (this week it's hamloaf). I can adjust from there, but mostly I just eat the same thing every night for the week, but mix up the side dishes. :)
Anyway, because I'll have used up all of my ingredients from the market for the past two weeks (kale, zucchini, potatoes, fresh peaches, apples) and my brown rice from the food co-op (rice pudding, this tasty pea stir-fry), I can try a new type of produce this weekend. Turnips, here I come. Just kidding. But who knows what will be next? It's almost butternut squash season....

I love that website! My favorite feature is allowing you to change serving sizes and it adjusts the ingredients automatically. It makes it easy to cook for large groups, which is basically all I cook for!
