That triggers a thought - ingredients in the database.

Many times I look at what I have in the pantry and try and make something
interesting from it rather than start from a recipe and then see if I have
all that it requires.

A facility whereby I can say I have eggs, milk, flour, mixed herbs and
cheese and am looking for a light snack, and up pops recipes for
omelettes,  savoury pancakes or flavoured Yorkshire Pudding  would really
be a boon...
