Cookin' With Google

Cooking With Google is based on the idea of making dinner out of the ingredients you currently have in your fridge.

Judy Hourihan originally came up with the concept of "Google cooking," where instead of using a recipe book, she typed ingredients into Google that she had on hand and let it find recipes that match. Cookin' With Google refines the search to eliminate most non-recipes from your search results.

Overall, this works pretty well. It's much better than reading through recipes to figure out if you have the ingredients on hand. The next time you're stumped about what to fix for dinner, you might try giving this a shot.
