Cook by Ingredient

When it comes to meal planning, I cook based on ingredients, not recipes. To make this quite easy, use the Ingredient-Based Recipe Index on my website Faithful Provisions. See what you have on hand and search my recipes to come up with meals that your whole family will love. Even if you don’t have a stock of ingredients on hand, you can still use the ingredient-based method by scanning the grocery store sales flyers, and planning your meals according to what is currently on sale. Plan all your meals around the best-priced ingredients.
