This app was developed as part of the senior project for University of North Carolina at Asheville.
Many of us have a refrigerator, cupboard, or pantry filled with foods and ingredients that we purchased and never used; mainly because we ran out of ideas or interesting recipes that put these perfectly good provisions to use. No longer will you need to stare blankly at the contents of your kitchen and try to decide what you can make for dinner. Sam's Cookbook allows the user to browse, submit, and customize recipes.
One key feature allows the user to see which recipes he/she can make by selecting ingredients from a list, presumably those already at hand. The app also recalculates the recipe if the user wishes to change the number of servings. From the recipe screen the user will be able to review and rate the recipe, take a picture (e.g. of finished product) and "favorite" or "save for later." The app also calculates an approximation of the recipes nutritional content: calories, carbohydrates, fat and protein per serving.
