Hi Mike :-)
Since I really like to cook, this topic interested me. I went to your site and typed in "walnuts."
What I notice is that the site is very jerky. I understand how you`re
doing this, but I would suggest a rework in your "what`s in my pantry."
You`re trying to do an instant search based on a reduction process. The
problem is that as I typed in "w" and the site tried to match all
recipes with a "w" at the start, it REALLY interefered with my thinking.
Additionally, I thought it would be where I could type in four or five
ingredients in my pantry, then hit "go" and find recipes that had ALL
those ingredients, then some of them.
So I typed in "walnuts," put up with the bit of confusion, and expected
to see "brownies" at the top of the list...or at least the top of the
"B" section. Not there; only brownie cookies. Then I expected to see
Chinese Fried Walnuts, and that wasn`t available.
Where are you getting your results from?
Additionally, if I can only type in one ingredient, I`d just as soon go
to Allrecipes.com or the Food TV system, or simply type in "recipe
walnuts" in Google.
It`s a great idea, that`s for sure. However, the current implementation
isn`t showing to its best advantage the underlying concept. There
already are applications you can install on your own computer that`ll
examine a list of what you have and provide you with recipes. They also
give you a recipe, check your pantry database, and run a shopping list
of what you`ll need.
I`m supposing you want to do something like this online, right? If so,
then you`ve got some competition in terms of how it`s already being
