Recipe management: What to eat tonight, Old Family Favourites, New Recipe Ideas

What do you want to eat tonight? What do you feel like? These could be the most frequently asked questions, in the most languages, with the least definite answers. I would like to tell you about a solution to the problems in answering these questions.

William Cowper wrote, “Variety is the very spice of life, that gives it all its flavour.” Our bodies need a variety of nutrients and more perplexing is our palette requires equal diversity and satisfaction. Our food culture is evolving as shortages grow, but crops do not. When variety is desired from the same ingredients, we need new recipes.

An automated recipe management systems includes tools to help us be more efficient and increase the variety of food we eat and the skills to create it. I don’t know about you, but I get satisfaction from providing an enjoyable meal for my family and friends. Do you have any go-to recipes that are consistent crowd-pleasers?

That latest creation failure could have been prevented, if it wasn’t so experimental in-nature. A recipe management system employs filters to sift through your ingredients as though you have transparent pantries, refrigerators, and freezers. It will produce a list of delicious options in various cuisines from what you have on hand.

After a hectic day of work, we want relaxation. It is nice to be served and catered to. The ease of buying prepared food is a temptation because we see home cooking as more work. Replace that worry with confidence that you will have a healthier, less expensive, more environmentally friendly meal at home.

A home inventory management system can remotely access your cupboard and double-check your list for shopping on the way home. Never forget another crucial ingredient, cleaner, or supply of any kind.

Similar to business functions of inventory management; your home inventory system will reduce spending and waste, and save time and frustration while increasing the variety of products and your satisfaction.

Automated recipe management software will compile those loose box tops, recipe cards, and family food favourites into a secure file for easy organizing and recollection when needed. Your neighbour will not be able to pinch your mother’s famous cookie recipe from your “secured cookbook”.

Of all the applications of technology in our lives, I think recipe management and home inventory control can best benefit from an update. In business and government, we utilize customer relationship management (CRM) tools to great effect. You and I have discussed the home versions of technology for personal life efficiency.

Cooking in frustration can be tasted in the end product. Delicious food begins in a happy kitchen. A clean and organized kitchen is a happy kitchen. Imagine the recipes lost over time.

What time period or chef would you visit if time travel were possible? What recipes have they lost? Don’t make people travel back in time for your great recipes. Store them and pass them on as they tell stories of our history.
