Things I love: Yummly

Have you ever found yourself in the kitchen with ingredients but no idea what to cook? I know that even if I buy groceries knowing exactly what I’m going to make that week, I always end up with extra groceries that I don’t know how to use. Sometimes I’ll just make “clean out the fridge” pasta, but when even that doesn’t work, I turn to one of my favorite apps/sites, Yummly.

All you have to do is type in the ingredient you’re trying to work with in the search bar and Yummly will load up all the recipes on the internet that has that ingredient.

For example, when I had bokchoy and bacon in my fridge, I came across bacon-y bokchoy and boom:

When I wanted to try something new with chicken, I came across miso chicken:

These are just some of the many possibilities that you can come across in Yummly! If anything, you might have difficulty choosing from all of the recipes!

I bought ciabatta bread yesterday for a recipe I have in mind for tomorrow. Turns out I have way more than I need for that particular recipe so I’ll be using yummly to see what else I can use ciabatta for!

Stay tuned and find out what I make by following me on instagram!! I hope it’ll be drool worthy. You’ll also noticed that I’m also trying to work on my plating skills!

When in doubt, Yummly. You’ll wonder how you lived without it before!
