 #4 – Recipe Matcher – Type in the ingredients you’ve got (or check them off the ePantry list), and you’ll see a long list of recipes which include at least ONE of those ingredients. It also lists those ingredients you still need to make that particular recipe. It sorts the results by percentage of your ingredients each recipe actually has. You can add recipes to “your favorites” at this site, print out the ingredients you still need, or print the entire recipe.

It found 6 recipes with ALL of the above ingredients plus 2,000 other recipes that would only require one or two additional ingredients. Bonus: It’s a cinch to see all of the additional ingredients that could yield even more recipes. Just add them one-by-one to your list of ingredients in order to increase the number of recipes found. And… you can even choose a specific category to narrow down the choices to say, Dinner recipes, instead of seeing a lot of recipes for Dips & Sauces.

 #6 – My Fridge Food – For the most inclusive list of ingredients, click “show all ingredients” first (instead of using the “quick ingredients list”, which is the default). Then, use CTL+F to search for your ingredients, one by one, and put a check mark next to each one. After clicking on “get recipes”, you can further filter down by type of diet, number of calories, or category.

 #5 – All Recipes Ingredient Search – To search by ingredients, simply leave the big search box empty, type in your ingredients, then click the magnifier/search button. I like how you can exclude ingredients. For example, you get a lot of lobster recipes in the results… simply ask it to exclude “lobster” but still include the other ingredients you previously listed. Or, you could just search for a particular “type” of dish, rather than searching ALL recipes.

UPDATE: While I was initially using the above recipe databases to find recipes based on ingredients, over time I have gone back to these recipe sites again and again even when I don’t have specific ingredients in mind. Yep, with the multitude of searchable recipe databases out there, these are the ones that constantly go to — whether I’m searching by ingredients or not. The reason? Some of them (like Food Pair and Supercook — my personal favorites) search several of the popular recipe sites for you! That’s super helpful and saves me from having to search through the recipe websites one-by-one.

5. Supercook: If you’re scrolling the web via desktop or laptop, try Supercook. Check off the ingredients you already have, and they’ll start you off with a lot of recipes, and then ask you if you have more specific ingredients to get you some more options. The suggestions are great because you probably have more ingredients than you thought and there are some great meals in your pantry just waiting to get out.

In an ideal world, none of your fresh produce and groceries would ever go bad. Instead, you would eat every bite of everything you bought. But in the real world, we all have leftover ingredients that we don’t know what to do with. Every piece of food in your kitchen has some serious potential, and there are apps to help you find it by giving you recipes of things to cook with ingredients that you already have on hand. It’s time to Upgrade Your Life with apps that let you cook with what you’ve got.

In fact, the point of this article is to share a handful of fun websites I found that let you type in the ingredients you already have on hand. After a simple search, you get a complete list of recipes that include the ingredients you entered. It’s as simple as that!

 #3 – Cookin With Google – This is a customized search engine that is just like the “regular” Google search engine, but this one only searches popular recipe-related sites. Type in your ingredients by putting 2-word ingredients in quotes and including a space between items (not a comma). The only downside is the results are provided in a non-friendly “search engine” kind of way… and that means you often get more lists of recipes rather than landing on an actual recipe. On the good side… you can fine-tune your results by choosing one of the following: vegan, world, atkins, seafood, diabetic, crockpot, weight watchers, gluten-free, low-fat, or vegetarian.

 #7 – Food Pair – At this time, Food Pair searches 20 different major recipe databases with a total of more than 1 million recipes. While it appears that you can only search by one single ingredient, this is not the case. Simply hit enter after typing in each ingredient, and your ingredients list will appear. There are also a number of other helpful filtering options that make this recipe database useful. In addition to the sheer number of recipes searched, you also have the option to narrow your search by course, type of diet, and number of ingredients (like “less than 5”).

4. CookBrite: This app kind of has it all. To plan your weekly meal, you’ll go through a process of deciding different types of meals you’d like to make (comfort food or light, fresh food?), then you fill in what ingredients you already have. With that info, CookBrite will select a whole plethora of recipes for you to choose from. From there, pick your recipes for the week and they’ll compile a shopping list for you. If there’s anything on the list that you already have, just swipe it off. It even saves what you have in your kitchen for a constant grocery inventory.

 #8 – Leftover Wizard – Search 300,000+ recipes at once using the BigOven recipe database. This one is kind of fun, because it seems more interactive than most. As you input each ingredient, the # of recipes available to you automatically changes — as do the photos of the ingredients you just entered.

3. Allrecipes: Just like the website, the Allrecipes app is full of delicious culinary finds, but what makes the app so unique is a feature called the Dinner Spinner. With the Dinner Spinner, you pick the main ingredient you want to use, the type of dish you’re making (breakfast, dessert, main dish, etc) and how much time you have. They’ll dish up a ton of recipes with videos and a list of ingredients to add right to an in-app shopping list.

 #2 – Recipe Finder – A recipe database hosted by the U.S. Dept of Agriculture, the recipes found here are provided by professionals working in nutrition and health organizations. So the recipes are probably healthier than on most recipe sites, and fewer in number as well. One unusual feature is you can build a cookbook yourself using their recipes. Unfortunately, you can only search 1 ingredient at a time.

If you are looking to lose that paunch quickly, you should turn to aloe vera juice. The sterols found in aloe vera are shown to lower the levels of abdominal fat. Also, being a laxative, it can result in weight loss.

When you find recipes you like, just add them to your shopping list and get your trip to the store done faster and smarter. And yes, they have an Apple Watch app.
