  I know there used to be a website where you could punch in a few ingredients in your fridge and it would pop out a list of recipes using those ingredients.

  I'm trying to make my grocery bill go further by spotlighting one ingredient in my fridge/freezer per day but I'm running out of ideas.

  Anyone know of such a website?

Here's a couple:

Supercook "Supercook is a new recipe search engine that finds recipes you can make with only the ingredients you have at home. To begin, simply start adding ingredients you have in the green box on the top left. The more ingredients you add, the better the results will be."

Recipe Matcher This site lets you search for recipes by keyword.

I think Supercook is better, because you can also exclude ingredients. So, you enter the ingredients that you have, and you can exclude ingredients that you don't have, or are allergic to, etc.

Happy cooking!

Supercook is terrific. Thanks Melissa for the link and thanks Kim for asking the question.
