Possible Enhancement to What's For Dinner

Wednesday, 6 July 2011

I just read an article about something called Punchfork.com, which seems to be a really cool recipe search engine. I'll probably spend some more time investigating this one.

However, I also saw that they had an API that lets developers integrate their recipe searching skills into applications.

I'm not too sure how I would integrate recipe searches into What's For Dinner. Part of me wants to focus on one thing and to do that well. For this application, that's meal planning and grocery shopping. I suppose it would make it easier to find a recipe based on a meal idea, and pull out all the ingredients in an easy way to make the experience more enjoyable.

Do any of you guys have thoughts on how a recipe search might affect the experience on What's For Dinner?
