When I was doing my part-time bakery courses from TruffleNation the most important thing we were taught there was to understand flavor combination and textures but not all of us have been to professional baking classes and culinary schools.
So when you open that fridge and find ingredients how do you decide which to use and make something yummy using exactly all or some of those ingredients?
Well, you don’t have to. Here are some apps that will do the job for you.
Say goodbye to having to throw leftover ingredients. This website does exactly as the name says, turns you into a Super Cook. The interface is pretty easy to understand and use and the best part is that you do not even have to download and install any app.
Just select the ingredients you have and the app will automatically update new recipes. Furthermore, it allows you to segregate the recipes based on soups, salads, casseroles, desserts, etc. And these aren’t just ordinary recipes, get them right and you will have your kids and even guests licking their plates.
