Things are very odd in the world right now. Rather than do a Tuesday Tip about all the scary things that are piling up in your news feeds, Let’s make your quarantine time more fun – learn to cook.
You may have, within the last week, looked into your pantry and wondered what on earth you were going to make for dinner, or lunch, or even breakfast because if you are quarantining correctly, you’re at home as much as possible. In order to make what you already have in the pantry match up with whatever you can find in the grocery store, first check out SuperCook – this is available via app (iPhone and Android) or online at https://www.supercook.com/#/recipes. With SuperCook you can list ingredients you already have at home, and as you check off items, the website compiles recipes you can cook based on what you already have. This may make it easier when you’re in the grocery store wondering what meals you can make when the only meat in stock is bacon. The best thing about this app is that it remembers what you’ve checked off in the past, so you won’t need to check off ingredients every time you open the app. After you’re finished checking off the ingredients you own already, scroll through the available recipes; you can even filter recipes down by type – dessert, dinner, soup, etc.
Once you click the recipe you want, typically it takes you to someone’s cooking blog, which is filled
with some long-winded story that you have to scroll forever through to get to the actual recipe. This is part two of the tech tip – you can add a browser extension on both Firefox and Chrome called Recipe Filter. You can Google “recipe filter” and you’ll see the instructions to add the extension to your browser. With this extension it will skip past the backstory on some person’s life and only show the recipe. I’ve gained so much time back in my life skipping the backstory and going straight to the recipe!
With these two items, you’ll be a chef in no time, or at least you’ll come out of this quarantine a better cook than you were!
