Before using this web app you need to spend a minute or two on the Food On Hand web page entering food that you have in your kitchen. Make sure you click the grey button labeled "Save changes to my on-hand ingredients" when you are done clicking on the food items you have on-hand.
About once a week you should take a minute to update this list of on-hand ingredients. Your on-hand ingredient list does not have to be 100% accurate - the AI cooking advisor just needs to have a good idea of what types of food you have in your kitchen.

This web site features an Artificial Intelligence (AI) cooking agent that prepares custom recipes for you based on the food you have on-hand in your kitchen.

You can also use the AI Recipe Helper to find recipes to make based on your ingredients on hand by using the AI Recipe Helper web page. You may be shown recipes that you don't quite have all of the ingredients for, but the AI Recipe Helper will suggest ingredient substitutions that you might want to try.
My goal is that this web site and accompanying book will help you to learn to cook more efficiently using ingredients you have on-hand and to develop better habits of eating vegetables and fruits, drink more water and less soft drinks, and learn to eat slowly and enjoy your food.
