Waste Not Want Not &

This is another great idea from Jodi Gorham of the Shepherd ward.

Part of provident living is making good use of what you have and not letting things go to waste. But sometimes you have a whole lot of something (like when the garden’s in full swing) and you don’t know what to do with it all, or you’re tired of fixing it the same old way. One resource on the internet that is just perfect for giving you a lot of options is:

Here’s what’s really great about this particular site:

You can search for a recipe, or you can search for an ingredient – like “zucchini” ( has 787 recipes with zucchini as an ingredient). This might help you come up with new ways to use a bumper crop.

The recipes on this site are rated and reviewed by those who try them. When you find a group of recipes that you like, say for “zucchini bread”, you can sort them by rating and see that the recipe “Mom’s Zucchini Bread” pops to the top and is rated as 5 stars with 1,250 reviews. With a rating like that, you know it’s likely to be a great recipe.

You can create your own file and save the recipes on the site that you’d like to try, avoiding the hassle of having to search for a recipe again later.

You can also post your own recipes and get feedback from others.
So here’s hoping our gardens are bountiful, our waste is minimal, and our end results are tasty!
