In case you didn't make it to the grocery store before the white death descended upon us...

Here's a cool new Web site that tells you what you can make with the stuff sitting in your kitchen right now:


Just plug in an ingredient, dish, cuisine and/or your mood and it'll spit a bunch of recipes back out at you. It's not working perfectly right now -- I plugged in "Mexican," "vegetarian" and "cheap" when I was searching for a dish to make for a recent dinner party, and the first recipe it gave me was for basmati rice (???). But then you can click on "show me more recipes" and get other ideas (for example, a recipe for white bean and broccoli burritos with cilantro). The site is still in beta mode, so maybe they'll add more recipes over time and improve the search function. Have fun!

Very excited about this website! But did anyone else have troubles printing off a recipe?? I tried for about 15 minutes to print from my new laptop (with Windows Vista, unfortunately) and thought something was just goofy with it so I went to my husband's desktop. STILL did not work! Frustrated, thinking our printers were not working I printed off a blank Google page and success! I had to copy the recipe into a Word document to print!
